If you want your fitness gym’s website to be a good representation of your business, then YES your website really does matter. It needs to be well designed, optimized and functional.
If a potential lead lands on your page and sees a cheap looking website, what’s to stop them from thinking you’ve cheapened out on your gym services too? After all, it’s a great way for potential clients to preview how your gym looks like, so first impressions are everything.
94% of a user’s first impressions are design-related and research shows a viewer takes only a fraction of a second to form their opinion. You have potential customers using the internet to find gym services just like yours. So if your website sucks, you run the risk of losing business to a competitor down the street with a better site.
Think of your website as a window to your own digital gym space, it’s your online business card. Ideally, your web pages are filled with high-quality photos of your gym, exciting news, engaging blog articles that post about special events, your fitness business, it’s mission and how you’re working to help people get in shape. Fresh visual elements and relevant content can help establish you as a leading authority in the health and fitness field. Customers will love coming back and will rely on your expertise.
Don’t forget about satisfying elements of SEO. Having a website of your own allows you more control to optimize for search. How will anyone online find you? Update your content regularly to help keep Google happy so it helps bring online traffic in. If you’re optimizing your web pages with engaging and relevant content you will have a better chance of viewers finding you when conducting a search. Achieving higher rankings with Google is much easier than hoping your Yelp listing comes up when a user googles your gym services.
