I am lucky enough to live in San Diego. We have a huge fitness community and a wide variety of activities available. As Operations Manager of Fitness Inked Magazine, one thing I do is to help fitness professionals expand their empire and earning potential.
You may be making income from training people, but why aren't you making passive income from doing nearly nothing?
You worked hard to build up your brand. You created your programs and slowly started to accumulate clients. So why not quadruple your income using your business venture as a launching platform? Here are four ways to do this:
1. Use Your Website to Host Affiliates
It amazes me that everyone isn't doing this. I had my affiliates set up in one day. Basically you partner up with a larger company and promote their products on your site. When someone visits your site, clicks their link and buys something, YOU get a commission. How awesome is that? Here are some sites you can use:
Guess what? You can make an entire product page of your affiliates' products, and NEVER HAVE TO CREATE PRODUCTS. That's smart thinking.
2. Create Digital Products About Fitness
Pay close attention to this one. It's a HUGE market. You can create a digital product on ANY topic (intermittent fasting, dumbbell rows, meditation, etc), find a hosting site, and then sell it on your website.
Let that sink in. After you post it on your website, you do NOTHING but promote it, and money rolls in. You don't even have to send the damn thing. The hosting site sends out your PDF automatically. Here is how I do this:
*Create product FREE on Canva.com (for graphic and design work at a pro level, use fiverr.com and hire an outside designer, starts at $5)
*Upload to ejunkie.com (10 bucks a month and WORTH IT)
*Place purchase button from ejunkie on your website
*Collect money in your sleep
3. Virtual Consulting
You can have clients all over the country and all over the world. Using Skype, webcams, calls and emails, it is possible to offer fitness and diet consulting to them. Why are you only working in your town? Get listed on fitness directories, purchase some banner ads or advertise on Craigslist, but get your name out there and start collecting fees.
4. Create a Product Line
Your company has gotten popular, you have clients like crazy, why aren't you selling your own line of fitness products? Using Vistaprint, you can have anything branded. Use wholesale sites to find products that fit your company or venture such as https://www.elivatefitness.com.
