We rec’d a question over the holidays from a Crossfit Affiliate asking us the difference between our MetCon5 Training Journals and our competitors. I answered with many of the features that make MetCon5 different.
However, it got me to thinking why should someone buy from us aside from the features that make MetCon5 better…
Certainly the product should deliver value to you as the consumer. While we are understandably biased in our thinking that the MetCon5 Training Journal
is the best crossfit training journal available, I have no doubt that our competitors products deliver excellent value to those that use them. So why choose MetCon5?
I think that we can illustrate this with a quick story about one of the affiliates that we work with.
We worked with StrongPoint Crossfit to customize one of our journals with the logo that they provided and sent them out a complimentary copy to review.
The feedback was great, but they wanted to know if we could work with the logo that they sent and change it to yellow with a red background. So we mocked it up with an additional option as follows:
The client then asked us if we could change the logo to black, yellow, and red…which became the final cover.
We spent a fair bit of time working with the logo and going back and forth on what you may find to be very small details before the client had even committed to an order. However, we consider these small details incredibly important when they are the difference between a client being just happy or the client being absolutely thrilled with the result.
While we may not always succeed, we are passionate about thrilling our clients.
Whether it be small details on a custom cover or looking for ways to enhance the journals themselves (like integrating Rip’s strength standards with the strength tracking pages instead of just sticking them in the back of the journal), we are always looking to enhance the value delivered by our MetCon5 Training Journal
, Crossfit Coaching Planner
, or Fuel5 Food Journal
Our main goal at MetCon5 is to be a small but important part of your Crossfit success. We get as warm and fuzzy thinking about the people tracking their Fran times in our free printable trial as we do about those doing it in a purchased hard-copy journal.
Focusing on the small details is one of the ways that we will make our journals the best training tool that they can be…and in short, that is one of the reasons why we think you should choose MetCon5
