Get New Clients
The 6-Week Challenge Campaign is an incredible technique to get new clients. On the Sign Up Page, people are asked to sign up for a limited-time offer for a 6-week fitness challenge.
After people sign up for the challenge, you follow up with them by phone or email to get them to finalize their purchase and place in the program.
A 6-week Challenge is 6-week fitness program that helps people transform themselves and meet their fitness goals. And by framing it as a limited-time offer, it creates a very exciting proposal for people who are interested in a short-term program to improve their health.
Step 1: Facebook Ad
Advertise to people on Facebook who are interested in personal fitness training in your local area to drive them to your Sign Up Page.
Step 2: Signup Page
On the Sign Up Page, people sign up for a place in your 6-Week Challenge Program by through the sign up form.
Step 3: Thank You Page
The Thank You Page confirms people have signed up to join your program and tell them what will happen next.
Step 1: Facebook Ad
Facebook Ads allow you to target people who are interested in personal fitness training in your local area to drive them to your Sign Up Page.
Below is a pre-built Facebook Ad and Target Audience that we use for one of our fitness clients:
Start with a short, exciting sentence to pull people in. Then show a call-to-action to tell them to Sign up for our 6-Week Fitness Challenge. Then show the aspects of the 6-Week Challenge in a bullet list, with eye-catching emojis, so it’s easy for them to read. And finish by tell them that the offer ends soon to create a sense of urgency.
Use an exciting, eye-catching image with a orange border. In our experience, this kind of image with a colorful border is what will stop people when they’re scrolling in the Facebook Newsfeed and read your Ad. And show a text headline in the image. This will get people reading your Ad right away.
This headline format, WIN [PRIZE]!, acts as a call-to-action to tell people what to do. This makes it easy for them to quickly understand the offer and what will happen when they click the Ad, which decreases their uncertainty and makes it more likely that they’ll click.
Newsfeed Link Description
Provide a sentence or two with some extra details on your 6-Week Challenge.
This is the button people click on the Ad to be taken to your Campaign.
Facebook only gives you a few options for this. For 6-Week Challenge Campaigns, Sign Up performs best as it’s the text option that’s closest to the action people are taking – signing up for your 6-Week Challenge
2. Target audience
Here’s the targeting we recommend:
Facebook’s Interest and Behavior targeting allow you to show your Ad to people who are interested in specific things and activities. Their system has become very sophisticated and is now able to target the right people incredibly accurately.
We recommend using Facebook’s Fitness Interests:
- Physical exercise
- Physical fitness
- Weight Loss
Age, Gender, Language and Location Targeting
Age, Gender, Location and Language targeting should reflect who your most common clients are. If you generally train people in their 20’s and 30’s, then you should target people in that age group. If you’re unsure which Location to target, we recommend targeting people within a 30-minute drive of your own location: This is a close enough distance for most people to be content with driving to you.
Why are Facebook Ads effective for this Campaign?
The reason they’re effective is because they’re shown to people who are interested in fitness training in your area. Facebook is great at knowing people’s interests based on their behavior, which is what makes their Ad targeting so effective.
Step 2: Signup Page
The Sign Up Page is where people sign up to join the 6-Week Challenge Program. It has two jobs:
1. Get people excited about your 6-Week Challenge Program:
The page includes a number of sections to show people how your program will help transform them and reach their health goals.
