Looking for best use of social media at FILEX and the Australian Fitness Expo 2015

Looking for best use of social media at FILEX and the Australian Fitness Expo 2015
April 9, 2015

With social media commanding an increasing amount of marketing resources and with many businesses clients and customers hanging out on Facebook, Google, Instagram and LinkedIn, Fitness Business Experts are highlighting the importance of social media campaigns at the 2015 Australian Fitness & Health Expo and the FILEX Convention.

With collective experience of more than 60 years in fitness management, Fitness Business Experts was formed last year by respected fitness industry figures Nic Monteforte, Shane Bryne and Simon Hall.

Highlighting the importance of social media at this weekend’s Convention and Expo, the trio suggest that social media input might be simply using a Hashtag (#) to gain exposure, a photographic comp to increase likes or a competition with a share component to launch a new product.

Looking out for the best Social Media campaign during the Convention and Expo, Fitness Business Experts will post the best campaing across their own social platforms tagging in the companies and organisations that have used social to increase their business in some way.

Fitness Business Experts highlight Ezypay’s ‘Win the Orange Scooter’ social media campaign (pictured) at the 2011 Australian Fitness & Health Expo as great example of such a campaign.

All those looking for recognition by the Fitness Business Experts are asked to add a post to their Facebook Page with the hashtag #BestSocialFILEX15.

Look out for the contenders for #BestSocialFILEX15 with photo posts on Facebook and Instagram and a round up on LinkedIN over the next few days.
