star_3Episode 30: The one that was missing for the Holidays

Websites and Resources Mentioned in the Show:


I figured out a sneaky way to get 35 fast comments on one of my youtube videos.  Pretty cool and cheap little strategy, though do it at your own risk because it turns out Google is pretty smart and might catch on to what you’re doing.

If you’re not generating at least half of your new members and clients from word of mouth and member referrals, then you’re not implementing the right kind of referral program.  Learn a slick way to get more referrals in this episode.

Don’t you just hate when you oversleep?  This week’s Killer Resource will make sure that never happens again.  Listen as a Robot volunteers to punch me in the face if I don’t wake up!

The strategy I share was supposed to be used leading up to Christmas, but luckily it can be used at any time of year.  It’s a cool way to make some fast money at your fit biz with very little effort.

As always your thoughts are appreciated. Please leave a comment below that will benefit the other viewers AND will get you noticed by Google. Enjoy the show!

      Hey Curtis
      Thanks for your marketing tips. Just paid for comments to Fiverr to get some comments to my Youtube video.

    • Jesse

      Good one. Love the cartoon 🙂

    • Love the gift card idea!

    • I love this show it has awesome content.

      • Thanks Doc! And great creative URL and solid testimonials on your website! Love it…

    • Curtis, the Gym Equipment Fitness Industry needs what you are supplying. Gym operators need to spend less money on the hardware in their fitness center business. And spend more money on marketing and advertising. Curtis Mock is the missing link. Buy used fitness equipment and spend more capital on sales and marketing. loves referring Fitness Business Television to all of our customers.

      • Thanks guys. It’s a great time of year to look at used gym equipment for sure!

      • We LOVE the guys over at, I am constantly searching the site and they have great deals on equipment that you would swear is BRAND NEW! I like to see the support for and usedgymequipment!

        Thank you both for offering such important things for this business!


    • Curtis,
      Thanks for the good ideas. I like the tip. I will give that a try.


    • Great as usual.

      I have been hearing rave results from the gift cards! If you don’t have gift cards at your club, you are missing out!

      Thanks for the great tips!

    • Chelsea

      Good information, as always 😉

    • Thanks for the tips. Especially giving us the websites to to go to find the resources. You ROCK!

      Best Regards,

    • The gift card method works great! I’ve been using them for a couple of months and have had a great return on my investment!

    • Another great show I’m checking out the plastic bag program right now since the gift cards rocked.

    • JJ

      The gift cards definitely work. I’ve had a gift card come in nearly 5 months after I handed them out, the new client told me that she kept it in her wallet and didn’t want to use it until she recovered from knee surgery. Now tell me a coupon or mailer that holds that value?!?

    • Carlos

      First time here. Great website and info.

    • Shayna Elliot

      Good video this week. I’m a tree hugger! 🙂 And I LOVE the idea for the plastic bags. Such a good idea. And I’m so angry at my droid phone because half the time the alarm works and half the time it doesn’t. I’ll try the waker upper tool. Thanks again for making me smile and learn new things. I really look forward to your videos.


    • Great vid again..
      I’m learning alot
      Thanks again

    • Hi Curtis….I just watched my first episode and loved it! I definitely will be back. Keep up the hard work and great content.

    • Looks like the fiverr gig is closed. How did you originally solicit for it? Has google now caught on with it?

      Thanks and keep up the good work 🙂


    • Curtis,
      We are in a small town (30,000 people). Just a couple of small gyms. Anytime fitness opened, 40 per month compared to our 47 eft price. We are bleeding members to them. Any suggestions?

    • Please contact us at your convenience.

    • I got to your webtv 5 day ago, and watched every episode. Congratulations.

    • great site bro.. love the tv slot. keep up the good work.

    • Just finished up my bracket fro the FitBiz madness! I have Mizzou going pretty far, I actually think that have the best chance outside of the #1 seeds! unfortunately, I don’t think my California Golden Bears have much of a chance to go too far LOL,so I guess Ill be cheering on your tigers!

    • I really enjoyed this post! Many Thanks!

    • Annette

      I think your video program is the best!

    • Thanks for another great episode

    • I love the gift card. It seems it could be used at the point of sale once every other closing technique has been tried then you could ask them “If I could get you a better deal then would you join today” If they say yes then you could say you need to talk to someone else (T.O) and they bring in the gift card and close the sale.

    • First time visit and good stuff Curtis!

    • For the giftcard idea, what if members want to purchase them and use them for themselves?

      • Hey Jordan, That’s why we have fine print on the back of the card. We recommend in addition to things like “To be used toward fitness membership only. Entire amount on card must be used in one visit. New members only. Some restrictions apply.” or similar. Now if you get a separate giftcard to get your existing members to try your profit centers, you will adjust your fine print accordingly.

    • Wow, your website full of useful resources to help personal trainers and fitness professionals! Thanks for giving away so much great info! I still haven’t used the personal training gift cards, but I’m anxious to give it a whirl!

    • Love the show Curtis! Thanks for the tips! Awesome!

    • Everyone loves it when people get together and share thoughts. Notable blog at The Weekly Web TV Show for Fitness Entrepreneurs – Fitness Bootcamps, Fitness Marketing, Personal Training Marketing, Opening a Gym, continue the good work!

    • I love each video for the info, but sometimes they get a little long. But Keep doing them.

    • Got to love it, even as a private personal trainer, this fitness info is good.

    • Curtis: I’m impressed – quality content, great ideas and resources. Thanks for a couple of gems. “Impressed”
