    Can you guys ask your schools where they got the best results from advertising.......

    Do you think it is normal for school attendance to drop during the summer......I thought it would be higher.....

    Also i am looking for some ideas of how to advertise on the cheap......

    Thanks for all your help in advance.......:x:

    The guy that runs my place said that it drops off there in the summer... although I have no idea why that would be, I think the summer is perfect for it

    Most of the people that show up at the gym seem to arrive due to word of mouth. That being the case, make a Facebook group and invite whatever members you can to it. People (their friends) will see them join that group and if they're interested they'll check it out. Make sure it's got pictures and a schedule and fees.

    x2

    I actually got started when my dad was going to my current school.

    A lot of the guys at my gym cross train with other gyms in the area (MT, MMA, boxing, etc) so if you can get posters or something up there, that'd help as well.

    seems like the amount of people at the school i go to changes a bunch depending on the spike tv show, when it's on bunch of new people in then after awhile it's back to pretty much the same core group
