It’s no secret that many fitness professionals and companies are using social media before fully understanding how best to represent their brand with the right tone, content and messaging.

Facebook is one of the most popular social networks used by personal trainers to communicate with customers, potential customers and followers. Consider your Facebook page as a vehicle from which to communicate, promote, support and gain awareness for your brand/business. The account won’t create a brand or image for you, that’s up-to you.

When often asked “How do you use Facebook pages to get the best results” our answer is usually “by coming prepared”. For the best results you need to understand what you are marketing. We have a few suggestions that might help you streamline your Facebook pages for the better!

Come prepared:

If your using a logo/brand then make sure it fits perfectly to your profile picture size (180 x 180 pixels). You’ll need a cover image (851 x 315 pixels) that’s relevant and represents you.
