In light of COVID-19, contact tracing is going to be a massive part in how you keep a record of who attended your gym or leisure centre during the day.

Gym lead management with MyMemberSales

What do you do when a potential member enquires about your gym? Or signs up for a free trial and just never returns?

MyMemberSales is a gym lead management tool that can help you manage every step of the sales process. MyMemberSales gym sales software can help you track the entire lead process from enquiry through to sale.

The lead will appear instantly in your system if they have lodged an enquiry via your special MyMemberSales web form embedded on your website or Facebook page. Once the lead is in the system, your sales team can swoop in and take the lead. They can log all of their interactions with the lead in MyMemberSales, follow to-do lists so they never forget to follow up with a lead, and book in appointments to show the lead around your gym.

Via MyMemberSales, you can also set up triggered automated messages, to ensure the lead is kept in the loop at all times. If they have an upcoming appointment, you can send an automated confirmation text so they won’t forget their booking.
