fibodo, the creator of a new booking management platform launched earlier this year to help Personal Trainers (PTs) and coaches run their own business more easily, has partnered with FitPro to create a CPD e-learning course.
‘Grow Your Coaching Business’ is aimed at coaches and PTs wanting to gain valuable business skills to more effectively and efficiently run their own business. The course empowers them to set-up and run a successful coaching business, making the most of easy-to-use technology and software to free up time and energy to focus on nurturing their clients.
The e-learning course, which is expected to take students three hours to complete, includes modules on business essentials and best practice, insurance, consumer trends, attracting new clients, selling yourself and maximising earning potential. Technology tools including Facebook, Instagram, fibodo, TrustPilot and Hootsuite are all covered in detail.
Megan Sowney, Commercial Director of fibodo, says: “Consumers want products and services to come to them, and they want to pay without cash – which has led to the ultimate successes of services like Just Eat and Deliveroo.
fibodo’s ‘Grow Your Coaching Business’ course gives learners an understanding of what consumers want, and in doing so, how they can easily attract and retain clients by following a few simple steps in using technology.
People use tech every day to connect with friends, listen to music, watch movies and TV, and tell the world their story. Running a coaching business should be just as easy, and our training course gives learners the understanding and skills to do it.
The course has been developed in partnership with Fitpro with the purpose of making it readily accessible via their new CPD platform – meaning learners from our partner organisations in colleges, universities, National Governing Bodies and private training providers can complete the course easily in their own time, supported by a community of experienced business owners.”
Brent Hallo, Director at FitPro, says: “For both sports and fitness coaches, clients are critical to the success of their business – without them, they have no business. Fitpro are pleased to support fibodo in the production and hosting of the course, which will give fundamental business skills to sports and fitness coaches across the UK – ultimately helping them to earn a living. Utilising technology and having an online presence is the future of coaching, which is why we are making the course easily accessible for all via our new CPD platform.”
The course costs will be available on the FitPro website from late September 2018.
