The dirty ‘S’ word…How Sales is really just a Conversation!

Most studio owners have a complicated relationship with sales. 

Some people are intimidated by it, others think it’s just plain tacky to focus on making more money in a business that’s supposed to be all about passion and service.

But let’s be real – if you don’t make enough money to keep the lights on in your studio, you’re not gonna be able to pay your bills, share your passion or serve your community. 

That’s why it’s so important for us to change our mindset around selling and understand that you don’t have to sound like a slimy car salesman to close a sale. 

Sometimes, a sale is just an honest-to-god conversation with a prospective member. 

And that’s exactly what we’re talking about in this week’s episode of The Business Of Boutique Fitness. Join Studio Grow coach Amanda Blair as she flips the script on the dirty ‘S’ word and brings you a fresh new perspective that could totally change how you approach sales and selling in your business. 

Here’s what we’ll talk about in Episode 558:

  • Why we should view sales as a conversation and not a big intimidating project
  • Why you should be intentional with your intake process
  • How client experience can impact a sale
  • How to ask for the sale 
  • The benefits of establishing a solid sales process that works

With grit and gratitude,
