Joinonline247.com

is a virtual membership director that can tour a prospective member, issue them a guest pass, arrange to purchase class packages, or sign them up for a yearly membership - all online, with the money deposited to your PayPal account, even while you sleep.

Selling Memberships

Each prospect becomes captivated with the activities they are most interested in while viewing a series of interactive, high-impact 'virtual' tour videos that describe your facility and services. This compelling presentation then offers your prospect a chance to 'join online' via a full software application that gathers data and processes membership fees. Payments go directly to your PayPal account.

Guest Passes

While we know that membership sales over the internet will increase every year there are still those who prefer the tactile experience of seeing your club in person, feeling the towels, meeting you and experiencing the Club first hand. In order to satisfy their impulse to join those wishing to tour your facility before joining, can either sign up for an appointment online or your prospect can receive an immediate electronic response with a one-week guest pass. The pass and information will be communicated to you by email.

Sales Support

99% of all sales are generated while salespeople are in your Club, answering phones and touring prospects during typical business hours. For most Clubs, salespeople cover less than 60 hours per week, Joinonline247 covers every hour of every day.

Our compelling virtual tour videos create a climate that drives prospective members to want to join. In fact, you can increase membership sales without adding sales staff by employing Joinonline247. With Joinonline247, your sales staff has more time to venture out and capture corporate memberships, rather than waiting for the phone to ring.

HOW IT WORKS

We redesign your home page, using your existing design parameters, to seamlessly incorporate the Virtual Tours, Guest Passes and Payments. We then produce the Virtual Tours, articulating the areas of your Club you wish to focus on. All information is captured and forwarded to you electronically; the software application resides on our server, so there are no additional IT charges. Payments are deposited directly to your PayPal account.

Virtual Tours

Virtual Tours is a visually stimulating video that describes the attributes of your club to potential clients. It is an extremely effective and efficient way of sending a persuasive message about your business.

The combination of narration, moving text, graphics, photography, audio and video allows viewers to immediately understand the value of your services to them.

Case STudy: Reebok Sports Club/NY

http://rbknyjoinonline247.com/

Objective

Introduce one of the finest sport and fitness facilities in North America to prospects when salespeople are not available - before 9:00 a.m. and after 7:00 p.m. - Monday through Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday and holidays.

Targets

Men and Women 18-54.

Roadblocks

  1. Clubs insist their prospects tour the facility, guided by a salesperson, to close the sale.
  2. Sales associates work Monday to Friday 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.; there are no salespeople available for the other 60 hours the Club is open.

The Solution

Joinonline247: Build an exciting virtual tour that shows your Club and sells memberships online.

Results

12,544 tours in year one.

The Strategy

The Internet has become a primary tool for viewing products and learning about services before purchase. Websites do not offer the excitement needed to fuel an impulse purchase.

The Tactic

Create a one-page website with six streaming videos that were easy and quick to download, and featured the facilities and services the Club had to offer its members. After viewing the tour, a prospect could download a guest pass, book a tour with a salesperson or join the club online, 24/7.

Reebok
The Creative

Prospects were able to experience a Virtual Tour of the facility with high-impact images, photographs and video, edited with a professional voiceover that described the Club's fitness and hospitality features. The voiceovers were written as if the online prospect was taking a live tour.
