As a fitness business, you must have a Facebook page. More importantly, you must update it regularly. But what do you say? How do you use Facebook to get more customers?
I have been studying the four quadrant theory of personality for over four years. Using this scientific approach, it’s actually simple to write sentences, ads and updates designed for these quadrants.
The world is made up of Energizers, Organizers, Harmonizers and Analyzers. We are parts of all four, but we have a primary, and we respond to certain words based on that primary quadrant.
Organizer buzz words: dependable, plan, organized, serve, manage, consistent, program, loyal, list and check.
Energizer buzz words: fun, exciting, challenge, adventure, compete, change, discount, action, variety, risk and freedom.
Harmonizer buzz words: friendly, welcome, create, amazing, good, love, supportive, family, engage and unique.
Analyzer buzz words: analyze, concept, think, logic, direct, learn, excel, self, professional, discuss, motivate, effective, experience and solve.
So, all you need to do is make sure you have at least one or two words from each quadrant in your Facebook status update, especially when you are using it to sell, which is something you should only do once in a while.
Here is a great example: “Do you need help with a workout plan? One that is fun and challenging, with friendly, supportive and experienced professionals? If so, come try us out for 30 days for only $19.00! Experience all the programs we have to offer here at Awesome Blossom Fitness for 30 days for only $19.00 with no obligation to continue. Simply call or stop in and mention this post!”
Organizer words: plan and programs. Energizer words: fun and challenging. Harmonizer words: friendly and supportive. Analyzer words: experienced and professionals.
