I'll give you $1800.00

“I Need Your Help to Help You!"

Hey CrossFitters,

I think you can help me with a problem I have. I don't know if you realize it or not, but marketing for new clients can be pretty expensive. And after I spend all that money on marketing, I'm still not guaranteed to get one single new client. "Word of Mouth" marketing is still the best type of marketing. And frankly, I'd rather reward you for sending me new clients than spend all my money on radio or newspaper. Many happy clients have mentioned that their friends, acquaintances, and family members have expressed an interest in improving
their health and fitness. With this in mind, I came up with my...

CrossFit Referral Reward Program!

Here's how it works:
Refer 10 friends, family, coworkers, etc. to me by the end of the 2008 calender year and you'll receive CrossFit training and your gym membership FREE for 2009. A whole year free and a savings to you of $1800.00!
(Refereed clients must join CrossFit for a period of 30 days to be eligible to receive your years membership free)

I know that I don't have to offer rewards for referring friends, but I think it's important to show that I value you as a client and appreciate your referrals.

When you think about people that you might refer, keep these ideas in mind:

People you work with.
Friends listed in your cell phone.
People you know from your hobbies and other interest.
Family members.
People you do business with.
People who attend your church

Hopefully, this will give you some ideas of people you know to refer. If you just spend a few minutes thinking about it, I'm sure you'll come up with quite a few people you know who would like to experience all the benefits that you've experienced from working with me.

I've included a Referral Form to help you jot down the people you think of who might be interested in finding out more about my services. Feel free to make more copies of the Referral Forms if needed, or you can just use a regular sheet of paper.

Thanks for your help!
Jeremy Barnett

P.S. Just so you know, I’ll be offering the people you refer to me a free consultation from you. I want them to know that you were thinking about them and their well being.

  1. Is this like a pyramid thing? I referred Russ, he referred Josh, so that counts for two on my punch ticket. Right?

    Regardless, I'll see what I can do.

  2. Sorry Joe, No pyramid scams here. It only counts for the people you directly bring in yourself. Get busy and start dragging your fire fighter buddies in kickin' and screamin'.

    See you in the gym,
