Websites and your box

I want to throw this out there for any box owners who might read this.

I was traveling this past week and stopped by a few boxes to workout. I was in San Antonio and was amazed by the number of boxes who did not update their website, had a website that didn't work on a phone (I busted out my laptop when the phone site didn't work), and had no easy method of even contacting to see their hours or if they still operated.

Two boxes didn't even respond to messages left over the phone.

Some boxes had not updated their WODs in a year and the only way I knew they were still open was finding Facebook pages or an Instagram account with a recent photo.

I hate to think how many other people gave up quicker than I did. There could be a ton of money being left on the table from people just moving on to the next box because of your website. So do yourself a favor and make sure you aren't missing out on some good clients and growth because your site is a dud vs a stud.

Re: Websites and your box

I think box owners get comfortable with their member base and other channels of communications (walk-ins, social media). So they believe it's not worth it anymore to update their websites.

I dont agree with that of course. I think a website is the face of the box "digitally". Social media is just a supplement.
