New Way For fibodo Golf Coaches To Reach 200,000+ Potential Clients

6.01pm 17th November 2018 - Growing the Game

Golf coaches can gain exposure to more than 200,000 potential new clients, through a unique service arrangement between fibodo and the workforce benefits platform, Wrkit.

fibodo (Find it. Book it. Do it), the booking management platform for fitness professionals, has entered into a partnership with Wrkit (‘Workit’), which offers up employee benefits and has more than 200 client companies including the NHS, Fedex, Dropbox, E.ON and AECOM.

When this goes live, later this month, employees from all of these companies will be able to access the Workit Activity Hub, powered by fibodo, as a way to find and book golf activities.

Anthony Franklin, fibodo founder and CEO, says: “fibodo empowers golf instructors to achieve successful businesses. In addition to fibodo providing them with a comprehensive booking management platform, they can now gain access to hundreds of thousands of potential new clients. This alone could enable them to achieve a significant increase in client volume and income – without any additional marketing or set-up costs.”

“Offering employee benefits is increasingly becoming a must, rather than just a nice-to-have. Research by Glassdoor shows that 80 per cent of employees actually want benefits or perks more than a pay rise. Our partnership with Wrkit allows those employees to easily search for any activities they’re interested in nearby, be that finding a golf coach, personal trainer or sports coach. For companies using Wrkit, fibodo enables them to proactively contribute to their staff’s health and wellbeing.”

If employees using Wrkit request a golf coach and there isn’t yet one on the system to meet their needs, the fibodo team will proactively source them in the right location – offering golf coaches the chance to get on board with guaranteed clients ready and waiting.

The Wrkit Acivity Hub, powered by fibodo, will join the existing Wrkit suite of modules, which already offer employees opportunities to save money on everything from cinema trips, holidays and the weekly shop to car insurance and educational courses.

Peter Jenkinson, Business Development Director at Wrkit, says: “By partnering with fibodo, Wrkit will be giving hundreds of thousands of employees a straightforward and trusted way to find, book and do sports and activity sessions – enabling employees to become healthier, more active and happier. We’re also delighted to be supporting every golf coach, sports professional and PT on fibodo, helping them grow their business and get more people active.”

The system will be up and running before the end of November 2018. To find out more, please visit and
