How Can You Possibly Give Away A Gi FOR FREE With A Jiu Jitsu Trial? Aren’t You Losing Money?
This is one of those rare questions that gets asked by both our coaching clients AND our prospective jiu jitsu students. On the surface, the deal sounds too good to be true. But it’s 100% real! No tricks, no bait & switch. On the surface, the answer is YES.. we are losing money. BUT, if you dig a little deeper and understand how this strategy can fit into the right system, you’ll see how it’s a win for both prospects AND gym owners.
First, a little background… Every gi costs us around 30 bucks. If you were paying a mat fee for each individual class at our academy, they’d be 20 bucks a piece. So, our 3 class trial plus the gi is valued at around $90 bucks.. So how can we afford to give it away?
Our trial is what’s called a “loss leader.” A ‘loss leader’ is a pricing strategy where you place the retail cost of a product or...
**Is Bigger Always Better?... Introducing the "Lifestyle Academy"
A few years ago I was eating lunch with my husband in a Jimmy John’s sub shop when I saw a sign on the wall with the story of a Mexican fisherman. The fisherman lived a quiet life relaxing in the sun, catching fish with his friends, & enjoying time with his wife. He had enough.
One day, a successful business man from the U.S. came down and saw his little business. He explained to the fisherman how he could grow his business, expand his operation, develop a fleet, commercialize, go corporate and make a ton of money. The fisherman listened.. Then asked, “After all of that work and all of that financial success.. What would I do?” To which the businessman replied, “You’d have enough to live a quiet life relaxing in the sun, catching fish with your friends, & enjoying time with your wife.”
We are conditioned to think that ‘bigger is always better.’ But this idea...

Jiu Jitsu seminars create excitement & foster camaraderie. They can bolster a student’s lagging desire to train & they are the perfect opportunity for your students to train with their idols.
And there’s no shortage of BJJ practitioners & famous fighters looking to fill their seminar schedule. High level talent is out there, ready & willing to supplement your teaching and create a more well rounded training program for your students.
Then why are so few academies hosting seminars with big name talent?
Money… specifically, fear of losing a LOT of it. Hosting seminars can cost some serious coin… and it SHOULD! Anyone who is worthy of conducting a seminar has dedicated their lives to mastering their skills. They should be compensated fairly for their time & experience, in addition to their travel & lodging.
So how can the average academy owner host a big name seminar & cover the thousands to needed to simply break even? Easy! You...

Let me show you 3 ways you can start generating more leads for your gym right now!
Let me ask you a question, when you are looking to buy something what do you do? I pull out my iPhone and google what I am looking for. Then I look at the ads and the first couple organic results.
Adwords is a quick way to take up the top of the best real estate on the internet. You can set up a few campaigns for your main programs and dominate your local search area pretty fast.
Sorry if you heard this, but blogging is not dead. It's still one of the best ways to get organic traffic to your site and have prospective students read your content and watch your videos.
Make good content that people enjoy and remember that its not about you. When you are creating content always ask yourself "What's In It For Them. Why would people care to read this."
The trick here is to have your Facebook Pixel and Google retargeting code on your website pages.
Where do you go to brainstorm, recharge, & come up with your next big idea?
All successful entrepreneurs understand that this is a CRUCIAL part of the business development process.
Paul Halme‘s brainstorming spot is legendary! (& I’m totally outting him on this! Haha )
Every Sunday when Paul goes to the sauna, he starts blowing up Alan Belcher‘s & my phone with amazing ideas! He’s also been known to have some pretty killer inspiration at airports. And, as any of you following his Instagram already know, Paul is a travel junkie! He’ll take any excuse to hop on a plane & go somewhere. The last time we all flew out of Biloxi… my husband Kris & I sat in the airport cafe at 6am like zombies, while Paul starting coming up with one revolutionary idea after another. He was definitely in his zone!
Alan gets his best ideas when he goes out for a long drive. He listens to podcasts, comes up with killer ideas, and literally can’t...

Wicked Reports gave us this data:
"I had looked at, we attract about one and a half billion in sales as of January of this year on like 400 million Facebook ad spend. And the three things that stood out to me was that the app, first of all, new leads can take a long time to buy.
And the average across all those one and a half billion in sales was 43 days from the first click to the first order. So you just can’t...
