Club Automation recently hosted a COVID-19 planning webinar for health and wellness leaders. Join Club Automation's Co-founder, Jeff VanDixhorn, and the Medical Fitness Association's President, Bob Boone, as we discuss ways to get accurate information quickly, track trends to mobilize quick response and share steps to promote community engagement in the rapidly-changing landscape.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease) is disrupting every aspect of our daily lives. Clubs of all types are being faced with the challenge of safely engaging their members and providing value beyond the facility. For many health and wellness facilities, state governments have already mandated their closures.

Although every club’s situation is different, there are some key actions to consider in order to survive and even thrive while leading your community through this time period. Let’s take a quick look at some of the main talking points from our COVID-19 webinar.

Maintain member engagement with SMS Messaging

Member engagement and reliable communication methods have never been more important to the club industry. Your members need to know how your club is handlingCOVID-19, and your club needs members to continue their memberships. SMS Messaging is an effective way to get critical information to your community and keep them engaged. Experts say cell phone dependency has grown by 20% in the last two years, and the average person checks their phone 96 times a day or every ten minutes. Moreover, text messages have a 98% open rate, and most messages are read within three minutes. These facts make SMS messaging are liable and consistent way to keep your members informed while our world navigates COVID-19.
