Creating a workout video library for your members is not a very difficult or complicated task. Follow the steps below, and you'll quickly create content to launch this new service for your members.
After the initial launch, you should organise a filming session weekly or monthly, to publish additional content.
Being organised helps you save time and get great results. This project needs time, human and financial resources to become a success.
Pick a few members of your team to be involved in this project. Each of them should have clear responsibilities and tasks.
Together establish the first 20 workouts that you'll be filming, taking into consideration your members' profile and your team's expertise.
Choose the location where you can film the workouts - make sure it's quiet, that it looks good on camera and you have all the technical requirements. For a start, you need a video camera and a laptop.
Set aside a day to record test videos with all trainers. Review the videos and decide on improvements. Then set aside two or three days for actually recording the videos.
The videos should be published in the platform and then set up all the details about the workouts. We recommend launching the service with at least 20 videos. This will only take a few hours.
First, make sure all your members know about this new service so they can start using it.
Use all your communication channels to promote your videos. That way, you can recruit new members or reactivate inactive members.
After launching the new service, you must continue to create new content for members. That way, this project will expand and grow in value.
Using the document template from STEP 3, plan recording at least 10 or 15 videos every month. Then you can publish them at regular intervals.
