Sales Models – How to Maximize Yours

Thursday, February 10, 2022
11:00 AM - 12:00 PM (Central Time) 

There are multiple models for selling membership in this industry. Which one you utilize depends on your personal beliefs, your budget and your knowledge of the sales process.

In this 60-minute session webinar hosted by NIHCA with Karen Woodard on February 10 at 11am, we will review several models, what makes them effective or ineffective and go through a checklist to breathe new life into yours so you can make more sales for 2022 and beyond. This will be a presentation of content as well as time for questions. Bring your questions on how to maximize your sales system.

Congrats to River Fitness on winning the $100 December Spotlight Contest. The December contest was to “Send us a short video showing your efforts to spread joy to your members and your community."

River Fitness got involved in their town’s holiday celebration. This year’s theme was “A Storybook Christmas” and River Fitness opened their doors to community members with a life-sized snow globe and their 2nd annual selfies with Santa Claus. This free event was a thank you to the community and included popcorn and drawings for prizes. We couldn’t say it better than what River Fitness said, “We are grateful for a blessed ending to 2021 and look forward to what new experiences 2022 may bring.”

Congratulations and Thank You to River Fitness
for the entry and your dedication to your community!
