    Trying to brand a fitness trainer. Already has 300+ FB friends. Wondering if should just stick with the personal page and use it, or create a Page? If a page, should I use the Business or Artist/Band link?

    Thanks for any input.

    I think I'm going to go with a Page, for Athlete. Found some pros online and it does look like the best way:
    (facebook)/pages/Jamie-Eason/127923735985
    (facebook)/georgesstpierre

    Unless anyone one else has other comments. Thanks.

    Business = Fanpage
    Friends & Co = Personal page

    Use her personal Facebook Profile as a her feeder account onto her Business/Trainer - Set up FBML with a simple Form to capture information in exchange for a free health analysis blah blah blah ---- For content just use Pro Tips from Bodybuilding fat loss etc blah blah blah - also upload video from her workouts and tag pics with her clients -

    let me know, i love sharing tips ;)

    yea man....use this tip ---- have her train a FAT client for a little bit of money or straight up free.... and track her progress through the fan page using notes, videos, pictures, quotes whatever ---

    it would be like a living version of the biggest loser television show --- it is a lot of work but i can guarantee you she will be #1 and make a lot more $$$ --- there my friend is about $1500 project for you.... enjoy -

    Depending on how small the town is, I would think it might be pointless. Is she looking to expand her clientele to surrounding areas?
    If she is then go for the fanpage, otherwise I can't really see anything, but local advertising helping much.

    your thinking small - who cares about training small town if she does an amazing job transforming a fat chick into skinny hot chick and docs on her page thru video, she will def get work outside of her area - use the media as a medium
