Here are all of the key elements you’ll need to organize and run a great supplement sampling at your gym and earn more sales to your online supplement store.

THE SAMPLING TABLE
Set up the pouring station. Use either a bar-type arrangement or a few tables to be your main staging area. Use small sized dixie cups to sample out the various products to keep waste to a minimum and maximize the yield of your supply. Also, have a trash can or waste bin handy instead of just a loose a garbage bag flopped on the floor to dispose of the used cups.

SHOW OFF THE PRODUCT
Always have the product bags facing out and make an effort to keep the presentation looking neat, tidy and professional. This also allows a more informed, potential customer to examine the supplement facts of each product. Also, create a one-pager and include details about the products available for tasting and a line or two explaining what is unique about each, such as its premium ingredients or claims.

MIXING AND TEMPERATURE
Unlike sample stations at large expos or trade shows, you don’t need bulky, professional mixing equipment to be effective. Use small refrigerators behind the bar or coolers with ice concealed under the tables to keep your water, almond-milk and shaker bottles chilled. Assign someone to be incharge of mixing up new batches to ensure you always have fresh, chilled samples to distribute.

OTHER TIPS
-If you have a blender and a little creativity, you can add a greater level to the sampling experience by making your favorite smoothie recipes and sampling that out to your members.  This can be a great way for them to gain a new appreciation for the product that you’re selling.

-Shakes almost always taste better with regular milk or almond milk versus just mixing with water. Be advised, if you choose to sample with any cool liquid other than water, just be sure to fully inform everyone of what you’re handing them before they drink it.  Especially if there are allergy restrictions involved.
