Private Labeling Your Fitness Services

By Pat Rigsby

Would you like to discover a quick way to grow your business without any marketing costs or overhead? Patrick Rigsby explains how private labeling can create opportunities for you.


Private Labeling is a strategy that has proven successful in hundreds of other industries and will prove successful for you if you give it a chance.
Would you like to discover a quick way to grow your business without any marketing costs and virtually no overhead?

Well, you're probably already familiar with the concept of private labeling. It goes on in every supermarket chain and in many smaller businesses ranging from chiropractic offices selling dietary supplements to tire stores selling their own brand of tires.

What happens is that a manufacturer allows the retailer to label their product with the retailer's brand and sell it as if they created it. The retailer then has a 'house brand' that it can usually sell with a greater profit margin.
This concept can work with services too. Customer support organizations do this all the time. The same company might be answering phones and handling customer support for dozens of separate businesses and answered each respective call as a representative of the business the customer is calling about.

So how could this work for you? More easily than you might think. There are businesses and organizations that would love to have their own 'in house' fitness expert. Churches might want to offer their members their own fitness bootcamp. A law firm might want its own private fitness program. A chiropractor might want a fitness component for his or her business. A gated community might be interested in having someone manage their on site facility and provide services for their residents.

Some of these organizations or businesses might want to charge the clients a retail price while you're charging them a wholesale price. Others might just want your offerings to be run under their 'brand' - it will vary by organization.

Look for opportunities to private label your services. Churches or private businesses are good places to consider approaching to run fitness classes, for example.
But the real benefit to this type of arrangement is the fact that another business or organization with its own loyal client, customer, member or resident base is not just endorsing you to this group - they're actually indicating that you're part of them. This is more powerful than any endorsement - it's attaching their name, credibility and trust to you.

Because of this you have immediate credibility with their audience. Also, because this type of relationship is closer than a simple referral, the organization or business has a vested interest in your success. They're far more likely to make sure their audience is taking advantage of what you have to offer and also more likely to work with you to make sure your program is a success.

So don't overlook this as a possible way to grow your business. It's a strategy that has proven successful in hundreds of other industries and will prove successful for you if you give it a chance.
