Re: Affiliation!!!!!

Ouch Chris, thats a long time. as for the other post about responses/feedback from affiliatesupport, i have been waiting almost 2 weeks for response to an email inquiry as well. assume they are pretty swamped, I have been watching the affiliate finder map for updates regarding boxes in my region and in the last few days there have been like half dozen added and thats just in the area surrounding OH so guessing they have a big stack of emails to sort through to get us all taken care of. Doesn't change the fact that the wait is killing us! lol

Re: Affiliation!!!!!

I wouldn't sweat it too much- think about all that is going on for CrossFit right now - the Open, Regionals, Games, seminars, all the new applications for affiliates.

It just takes time - in the meantime, I would use this waiting period to make sure I had everything set up ready to go - systems - what are your membership rates and packages, do you have the best and most economical processing for payments, website ready to launch, enough equipment, plans for the future ( growth - do you have enough time, will you need more trainers, do you have enough room to expand ), etc.

If you're already training people, you'll be getting more onboard simply by word of mouth, if they like it and are making progress.

Patience grasshoppers, patience.

Re: Affiliation!!!!!

Wise words Steve. The wait had proved a good one as its given me a chance to do exactly as you say. I have a website ready to launch as soon as I get the affiliation

It is a waiting game, and good things come to those who wait (hopefully!!!)

Holy cow... I just paid and signed the license agreement and got an immediate response saying:

'Thank you! We have received your paperwork and your payment which means CrossFit Skipton is now active'.

BEST DAY EVER!!!!!!!

Lucky Dog! Must be trickier to process here in states. Just over 2 weeks on that end of the process and still not active. Did recieve immediate confirmtaion on license agreement & pmt, but had to upload copy of insurance and still have not heard back. Awesome for you though, have fun! guess you get to graduate from the limbo board...
