It costs 6 – 7 times more to attract a new customer then it does to RETAIN one.  While marketing and membership sales are important drivers for revenue, the savvy club manager knows that member satisfaction and retention is even more vital to running a successful gym business. Your existing members provide monthly or annual dues, and satisfied members spread the word, bringing in new customers. This course focuses on the important variables that influence member retention. You will learn how to create positive experiences for your members by cultivating a service culture. In order to successfully complete this class and earn 2.0 W.I.T.S.
