Let us start off by stating that generally speaking ADMINISTRATION isn't every private trainer's strong point! In actuality, I believe most South African PT's are pretty bad at handling their reservations, accounts, collecting outstanding income and issuing invoices properly and in time.
Here are a few tips to help you manage your business and reap the benefits of a strong administration element:
First of All, set your admin policies and procedures in writing to your customers; it is not something you need to push too hard, but it is important they know at least the following key components:
Can you invoice in arrears or in advance?
Can you charge for late cancellations and what's a late cancellation concerning notice period?
Can missed sessions be made up during the month and are sessions transferable?
What's the session rate?
Is there a discount if I commit to a fixed monthly fee?
When are bills sent out and when do balances will need to be settled by?
