fibodo launches to help Personal Trainers ‘get their swagger back’
A brand new booking management platform has been launched, to help Personal Trainers run their own business more easily.
fibodo (find it, book it, do it) enables PTs to get on with delivering first class training to their clients, leaving the everyday hassles of running a business in safe hands. Backed by, among others, JJB Sports’ former CEO, Tom Knight, the easy to use platform offers PTs everything they need to successfully manage a business, including real-time bookings and secure payments, personalised web pages and associated marketing channels, saving hours of administration each week.
The platform comes with pre-loaded activity options and ‘template’ offers to help reduce set-up time.
“We’ve tried to do as much of the background work as we can for our Personal Trainers. But if they want to add a 15-minute fitness assessment, a postnatal class, a special offer or anything else that’s not already on the system, we’ve made it quick and easy to configure,” said Knight, who is Chairman of fibodo.
The personalised web pages, Facebook direct-link booking button and real-time availability planner all help to professionalise how PTs present themselves, while the opportunity to push communications on classes, last-minute availability, new offers and discounts to social media platforms and via email enables PTs to sell their services and grow their business more effectively. fibodo is fully integrated with the online review community, Trustpilot, which means PTs can quickly and easily build trust in their business.
Ex golf pro, Anthony Franklin, CEO and Founder of fibodo said: “Many Personal Trainers choose their profession because they’re passionate about helping people feel fitter and healthier. Often the day-to-day aspects of owning and running their own business aren’t where they’re most skilled or experienced. fibodo is designed to help Personal Trainers ‘Get Their Swagger Back’ by taking the sweat out of running a business.”
Once a booking has been made through fibodo, clients receive a booking notification and push notifications to remind them of their upcoming sessions. And because all payments are taken at the time of booking, if a client doesn’t give advance notice of a cancellation, there is no awkward conversation to be had about payment.
“It can be really hard when you’ve developed a personal relationship with a client to charge them for a missed session if they haven’t remembered to cancel within 24 hours. Often PTs just allow clients to rebook, and don’t charge, so they lose out and don’t maximise their earning potential,” explained Franklin. “fibodo removes that problem and does all the admin – it’s totally hassle free. The platform also automatically processes customer refunds, if for whatever reason the PT has to cancel.”
With the upcoming General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) next month, Personal Trainers using fibodo can also be confident they are covered; no more bundles of client paperwork that could easily fall foul of the law. fibodo is completely GDPR compliant and also in line with the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
The fibodo booking management platform is available to download and use for free. However, an Essential and an Accelerate plan are also available with additional features. The Essential plan, which comes with a customisable app, allows the PT to engage with their clients seamlessly, whilst also reaching new audiences. It is fully integrated with Trustpilot, the online re-view community, and costs just £9.99 per month, beating all its competitors in value.
