Hi there! My name is Laura Jackson. I’m a personal trainer, nutrition coach, fitness competitor and a trained journalist. Although I’ve been in the fitness industry for over 20 years, I eventually found my niche in empowering women to look and feel their best. So if you’re a small business owner with a female-focused product or service and you’ve come to this page, then we likely have this in common!
Recently, I was forced to pivot my business from one-on-one training to meeting my clients’ needs online. What started out as a new year’s resolution weight loss challenge has evolved into so much more. It has become a full-on passion project that gets me out of bed early every day. Not only am I helping more women than ever become the best version of themselves, but I’ve also found a fun way to collaborate with like-minded boss babes (like you!)
By partnering with a challenge, you have the unique opportunity to reach new potential clients and customers, while serving your current market with something unique, fun and uplifting.
How can this help grow my business?
This is a great question. As a fellow entrepreneur, I know that resources are limited. So any endeavour has to make sense financially. As a former journalist, I’m all about the research! When I began to dig, this is what I found:
80 per cent of consumers are more likely to make a purchase from a brand that provides personalized experiences
A giveaway is just like any other marketing initiative – it’s a way to generate more exposure for your goods and services
But the key is to go further than simply giving away goods – Frugal Marketing explains that you want to give away information as well. For example, a beauty salon could give away shampoo and also hand out pamphlets on proper hair care. By giving people more knowledge of your product, you can impress them with your expertise and leave them intrigued and curious about what more your company has to offer.
The good news is that our online challenges do just that! When you partner with us you have the unique opportunity to interact with current and potential customers in a creative and fun way. Each week we showcase a different business by setting up interactive zoom workshops for all of our participants. Plus we will promote you as best we can though our social media channels. And we always encourage you to take part in our app workouts, live zoom bootcamps, chat group and more! When you interact with your customers or clients, you create a better relationship; thus increasing the likelihood that they will do business with you.
Do I have to spend money to make money?
Yes! I do believe this to be true. However, we realize that it may not be feasible for all businesses; especially those that are small and/or independent. Therefore, our challenges provide you with the opportunity to share some of your products and/or services (any amount is appreciated). When our participants sign up for a challenge, they are most excited about the fact that they have a chance to win amazing prizes donated by our partnering sponsors and local businesses. So it’s a win-win! This is all part of the personalization experience that consumers crave from businesses. I’m also a firm believer in the power of the universe. When you give back, good things always come your way!
How do you I get involved?
