When promoting and marketing your personal service online, creating a self-promotional ad has been the norm. But it takes much more to truly connect with the right prospects
New York, NY (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Fitwire, the new health and fitness social networking site for professionals and amateurs alike, has announced that it is set to launch in beta on July 24, 2012. Health and fitness professionals can draw quality prospects, boost their reputations, create strong client bases, and network with other experts to promote their health and fitness services to an ever-growing health and fitness community using Fitwire’s interactive platform. Fitwire’s professional-grade profiles are equipped to feature articles, class schedules, customer reviews, and even custom diet and workout programs. Professional members can also communicate with the larger Fitwire community, answering questions, commenting on user-created material, and fostering new bonds with both potential and current clients and other experts. Starting on Tuesday, July 24, health and fitness professionals are invited to take advantage of a 30-day free trial.
“When promoting and marketing your personal service online, creating a self-promotional ad has been the norm. But it takes much more to truly connect with the right prospects,” says Fitwire CEO Misato Alexandre. “I believe marketing is about connecting and building relationships, so I wanted to create a place where health and fitness professionals could market themselves by connecting with the public in a very direct and personal way. Fitwire is that place. It gives health and fitness professionals an opportunity to showcase who they are and what they offer while optimizing their professional online presence.”
Fitwire’s detailed and customizable profiles supply the ideal first impression for health and fitness professionals. The profiles are meant to showcase strengths and provide an accurate, albeit flattering, snapshot of specialties and services. Professional profiles can be augmented with self-authored articles that highlight the professionals’ area of expertise, workout class schedules, a ‘contact me’ feature, and much more.
Health and fitness professionals can also create and upload an unlimited number of personalized workout and diet plans (currently under development) to their profiles and to a larger workout database, choosing from over 500 exercise and an extensive list of menu options. These plans are an excellent medium for exhibiting a professionals’ approach, and other users can post questions or comments on the exercise or diet plans, nurturing a means of direct communication. Professionals can also create plans for specific clients, giving them an easily accessible and attractively designed tool that leaves a lasting impression.
Fitwire encourages networking between potential clients and professionals via an Ask-a-Pro section where health and fitness professionals can address user questions. Comments are enabled on articles as well as workout and diet plans, creating ample space for conversations and new connections between members. Health and fitness professionals can also peruse the profiles of other experts as well as potential clients, leaving their own comments as they go. Each comment provides a link back to the person’s profile, increasing the number of users (and potential customers) who find them.
