As gyms geared up to emerge from lockdown, each brand launched their plans in a reopening video. By using social media listening, we were able to answer the question posed to us by Liz Terry, Editor of HCM Magazine – who’s winning on social? Our answer, starts on page 52 of this month’s HCM Magazine.
What did our social media listening discover?
Gym members are already discussing their potential experience in public. They’re giving you clues about what they think of the ‘new normal’ experiences, and how they expect to feel about them. There is no one-size fits all here. Different brands have created different expectations for their members. But broadly their new priorities relate to 1 of 4 value drivers:
- Peace of Mind
- Value for Money
This analysis highlights how important it is for organisations to make time for customer listening. To pause and listen to their comments without judgement or assumption. They can’t rely on the staff who are responding to specific questions and comments, to also have the time to stand back and see the bigger picture. Instead, they need a process, or better yet an automated platform, for aggregating and analysing all these customer comments.
