Step #2. Select a enterprise that may be a good prospect for chair therapeutic massage.

To determine if a enterprise is the precise place for chair therapeutic massage, ask your self these three questions:

1. Does the enterprise match my therapeutic massage type and shopper demographics?

2. Can I set up a relationship with this enterprise?

3. Is there potential for enterprise clients to grow to be my clients?

A while in the past I centered on my educating enterprise and my therapeutic massage observe suffered. To recharge my therapeutic massage observe, I made a decision to do chair therapeutic massage and made a listing of companies that may be a very good match for my therapeutic massage type. Bodily therapists, private trainers, chiropractors, and operating retailers have been on the prime of the record as I skilled ache aid and sports activities therapeutic massage.

I then did a neighborhood Google seek for every enterprise class and wrote down the companies that didn’t provide therapeutic massage as a part of their providers. Subsequent, I made a proposal.

Step #3. Create a chair therapeutic massage provide.

The provide will clearly set out the main points of what you conform to do. Are you going to supply a chair therapeutic massage at your common value, discounted value, or free however on a restricted foundation? My primary precedence from a advertising and marketing perspective was getting our bodies in my chair so I may promote my therapeutic massage. That is why I selected free however on a restricted foundation. That is what a profitable, free provide appears to be like like.

I researched and located chiropractor Bernie who didn’t provide therapeutic massage in his workplace. I approached Bernie providing two hours of free, 10-minute massages for his sufferers on a day of his selecting.

He preferred the thought and renamed my proposal Affected person Appreciation Day. Altering his identify, he took it upon himself to supply free massages to his sufferers. I used to be fantastic with that as a result of by letting me into his workplace, he was primarily endorsing me, giving me immediate credibility within the eyes of his sufferers. All I needed to do was chill out and relieve ache for his sufferers. What I may do.

The primary occasion was successful and a few sufferers made appointments on the spot. Bernie instructed we do the chair therapeutic massage gig as soon as per week for a month or two. We did and I bought extra names and extra purchasers of his sufferers.

After two months, it broke naturally. However now my e book was full and Bernie was always referring sufferers to me due to chair therapeutic massage.


I didn’t obtain all provides. I had a free two hour chair therapeutic massage at a neighborhood PT workplace. They appeared to benefit from the therapeutic massage, however I could not get their consideration once more after the live performance was over.

Years later, I utilized to the PA workplace once more. This time the workplace supervisor defined that their PTs see hip and knee alternative sufferers from the hospital throughout the road and by no means depart.

One other time I bought a free chair therapeutic massage at a retirement neighborhood. I did not comply with up as a result of the retirement neighborhood was a great distance from my workplace in spite of everything.

By the way in which, if a chair therapeutic massage gig is not handy, no downside. You don’t have any obligation to do it once more. Simply transfer on to the following enterprise in your record.

Chair Therapeutic massage Advertising for Therapeutic massage Companies

I at the moment don’t use chair therapeutic massage to market my non-public observe, however I do use it to market my therapeutic massage enterprise. Meaning I pay therapists to do chair massages, and I’ve to decide on my places rigorously so I do not burn by my advertising and marketing finances.

I take advantage of the identical enterprise choice course of that I did after I was doing chair therapeutic massage for my non-public observe. Is the enterprise a very good match and has the potential to generate clients and construct relationships?

Modified the place I put the emphasis. Prior to now, with my non-public observe, the emphasis was on getting purchasers as quickly as potential. Now it is about constructing relationships, as a result of sturdy relationships can result in ongoing buyer acquisition alternatives.

This is how I developed a relationship utilizing chair therapeutic massage. On the grand opening of our new therapeutic massage location, situated within the Pharmacy Wellness Heart, we provided complimentary chair massages. We distributed free chair therapeutic massage for pharmacy workers. A number of the employees took us up on the provide and phrase began spreading across the pharmacy that the individuals at PressurePerfect Therapeutic massage are actually good..

We saved the momentum going. A number of months later, the pharmacy had an enormous sale. We did a podium therapeutic massage to help their gross sales occasion. This time we solely picked up one buyer, however extra importantly, we continued to construct a optimistic relationship with the pharmacy.

Step #4: Use chair therapeutic massage to construct rapport.

Later we celebrated our one 12 months on the pharmacy. Are you able to guess what we did? You’ve got bought extra free chair massages for our clients and pharmacy clients and workers.

What was our return on funding (ROI) by way of {dollars} earned and relationships constructed with chair therapeutic massage?

On the greenback chart, we paid for 20 hours of chair therapeutic massage for the 12 months. Some chair therapeutic massage customers turned purchasers. A few of them have referred family and friends members who’ve additionally grow to be clients. Add that up and we have greater than coated the annual price of chair therapeutic massage. Moreover, as chair therapeutic massage purchasers and their referrals proceed to return in, we proceed to obtain ongoing income.

Tougher issues to measure

Let’s check out the connection ROI chart. I’ll change the forex of the connection desk from US {Dollars} (USD) to Goodwill {Dollars} (GWD). Why? For those who do one thing good for one more enterprise, you do not count on to get money again, do you? Your expectation is that the opposite enterprise will do one thing good for you. That mentioned, you need to spend some GWD to get some again.

At our grand opening and all year long, we paid the pharmacy at GWD with chair massages and different niceties, like a free lunch after they gained Good Neighbor Pharmacy of the 12 months. The pharmacy returned the goodwill {dollars} to us. First, they allow us to use the small health heart for our well being workshops totally free. Then they allow us to hold laundry and tools within the health heart totally free.

As soon as this GWD trade was created, asking for favors turned straightforward. To the pharmacy. Can we promote our workshop occasion together with your electronic mail? Sure! From the pharmacy. Would you wish to ask your clients to vote for us within the Good Neighbor Pharmacy Contest? In fact!

USD and GWD usually are not mutually unique

When a chair therapeutic massage advertising and marketing plan works effectively, you’re linked to a different enterprise in each USD and GWD. That is what I imply. Our metropolis block closes the primary enterprise road to automobiles in order that eating places can spill out onto the sidewalks and streets each first Friday of the month. To get our identify in entrance of the First Friday crowd, we’ll be doing a chair therapeutic massage.

All Sorts of Quick, a operating retailer I contacted after I was restoring my e book years in the past, allowed us to put the therapeutic massage chairs on the sidewalk in entrance of their downtown storefront. The operating store pays us in GWD as a result of we do a free therapeutic massage as soon as a month for his or her Saturday operating group. Additionally they refer clients to us. We ship them purchasers. And so they have been associates. It would not get extra related than that.

Suppose an excessive amount of

You do not want an MBA to determine learn how to make chair therapeutic massage generate a optimistic ROI. First, undertake methods to avoid wasting your arms so you do not get burned throughout a therapeutic massage chair. Then select a enterprise whose viewers is in your therapeutic massage business.

Subsequent, attain out and provide a chair therapeutic massage and search for methods to develop enterprise relationships. Briefly, create the plan, promote your arms, and spend goodwill {dollars}.
