How to use TikTok marketing to promote your fitness brand

By now most business owners will be aware of the benefits of social media when it comes to promoting their business - from growing client bases to connecting with existing clients, social media removes the middle man and lets you connect with your customers. It's an incredibly powerful tool.

Second only to having a business website and gym management software when it comes to absolute marketing necessities, social media platforms allow your clients to find and connect with your offering.

Platforms such as Instagram and YouTube have allowed many a success story for businesses around the globe in an era of advertising saturation, allowing many savvy content creators to cut through the jargon and connect with a loyal customer base.

And TikTok is no different when it comes to promoting your fitness business - it can help you reach a younger, digitally engaged audience. 

Keep in mind that 38.5%, of TikTok users worldwide are between the ages of 18 and 24 and it creates more ad revenue than Snapchat and X (formerly Twitter) combined.

Here are some steps to help you get started:

1. Create an engaging profile:

 - Choose a catchy username that relates to your fitness business and is easy to remember.

 - Use a high-quality profile picture 

- Write a compelling bio that tells people what your business is about.

2. Plan your content:

- Decide on the type of fitness content you want to create. This could be workout demonstrations, nutrition tips, fitness challenges, or motivational content.

Check out our guide for marketing to different people.

- Consider trending challenges and popular fitness trends on TikTok. Participating in these can help your content gain more visibility.

3. Produce high-quality videos:

   - Invest in good lighting and use a stable camera or smartphone to ensure high-quality video production.

   - Ensure clear audio and background music to make your videos more engaging.

4. Educate and entertain:

- Combine education with entertainment. Keep your content informative but also engaging and fun.

   - Use creative storytelling, humour, and relatable scenarios to connect with your audience.

5. Short, snappy and authentic videos:

   - TikTok's ideal video length is around 15-60 seconds, so keep your videos concise and to the point.

   - 63% of all successful TikTok ads communicate their message right away, according to so don't be afraid of getting to the point

- Use text overlay to emphasise key points or instructions.

6. Use trending hashtags:

   - Research trending fitness-related hashtags on TikTok and include them in your video descriptions to increase discoverability.

   - Create a unique branded hashtag for your fitness business to encourage user-generated content and engagement.

Creating content that fits in with the platform is crucial.

7. Engage with your audience:

   - Respond to comments and questions promptly to foster a sense of community and connection.

   - Collaborate with other fitness creators or engage in duets and challenges with your followers.

8. Consistency is key:

   - Post regularly to keep your audience engaged and attract new followers.

   - Develop a content schedule and stick to it.

9. Cross promotion:

   - Share your TikTok content on other social media platforms, like Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter, to reach a broader audience.

10. Leverage TikTok ads:

    - Consider using TikTok ads to promote your business to a larger audience. TikTok offers various advertising options for businesses and you can choose to send your audience direct to your business website, your TikTok landing page or another page of your choosing.

Costs can start from as little as $10 for 1000 views (with a minimum spend) or $10 per impression.

11. Offer exclusive content:

    - Provide exclusive content to your followers, such as behind-the-scenes footage, exclusive workouts, or access to webinars. This can help build a loyal fan base.

12. Track your metrics:

    - Keep an eye on your TikTok analytics to see which content is performing well and adjust your strategy accordingly.

13. Comply with guidelines:

    - Ensure your content complies with TikTok's community guidelines to avoid any issues or restrictions on your account.

14. Educational series:

    - Create a series of informative videos on topics like nutrition, specific workout routines, or fitness myths. This can keep viewers coming back for more.

15. Before and after transformations:

    - Share success stories and before-and-after transformations of your clients (with their consent) to showcase the effectiveness of your fitness programs.

Remember that building a following on TikTok takes time, so be patient and consistent. Adapting your content to your target audience's preferences and staying up-to-date with the latest TikTok trends and challenges is also essential.
