You set yourself apart by doing something that no one else is doing. It can be something small like a great hand and arm massage while under a mask or complimentary foot massage with essential oils. Complimentary Lip or eye treatments that don't use extra time but make the most of the time you have. Going above and beyond what is expected and letting your clients know that you are doing something extra to enhance the service and meet their needs at the same time. Making your service exceptional so that your clients will want to share it with friends and... (more)

Since you ask this question on the internet, I'll ask you. When you're looking for something on the Internet, how do you find it?

If you're like the vast majority of people, you search on Google to see what is around you.

Of course, in order to actually get Website visitors from Google, you have to be found on Google. Many people throw their hands up over this because they don't think getting on Google works anymore, so they try things that return much poorer results.

Hi David,

Sorry, I didn't see your response.

If you're asking about Digital Target Marketing, the business, I have no information about them. They seem to focus on what happens AFTER traffic arrives at your Website, which is not what we do. We drive MASSIVE traffic TO your Website.

I agree with what they're doing, but the biggest problem with anyone trying to get business on the Internet is having their Website found in the first place.

SEO is the best answer to developing traffic to a Website, IF you choose people that can actually get results and not delude... (more)

A referral will be your highest compliment. Many people will try strategies that have more than likely been tried. The most valuable difference you will make for your client is to be consistent in what you do. Setting yourself apart is more to do with the way you establish relationships with your clients. Skin care knowledge is available through many resources right now. Continue to use your own personality as well as educate yourself not only in skin care but how to be the best person you can be. Remain passiniate about what you do! All the best

Hit the Streets! Lots of opportunities out there for your business. Small Flyers or cards that can be handed out to local businesses. Consider offering a FREE 30 min massage so they can experience your services. Pass these out to businesses that may run in higher stress environments (real estate, finance, tech etc). If you can get in with HR at some of these companies you can offer a nice package to the HR manager to provide to their employees. Run promotions to specific offices (mothers day, fathers day, welcome to summer, kick start your vacation etc).

Quite a few great answers here. I'd add, ask your clients what they like most about your spa. And then focus on that to make it better every time. Also ask what they don't like and don't stop doing it. Observing before, during and after may also give you a wealth of informatiin
