Mother's Day is only a couple of weeks away... but it's not too late to ramp up some marketing for your massage business!
Here's a great idea from Essential Massage Therapy:
They sent out an e-newsletter to all of their clients that included this Mother's Day Contest.
Enter to Win!
Visit our facebook page and post on our wall a Mom/Daughter or Mom/Son picture telling us why Mother's Day is special to you. Share with your friends and have them vote by commenting on your photo "I vote for you". The 2 Fans with the most votes will each win a ONE HOUR MASSAGE! All photos and votes must be posted by midnight, Wednesday, May 9th. We are looking forward to seeing all of your submissions!
This contest is a great way to get more LOCAL Likes to your Facebook page - friends of your clients will be stopping by to vote. These could be potential new clients! Everyone will be tuning in to see who wins... you could also use this as a chance to remind everyone that Mom will love a gift certificate (if they don't happen to be the winner of the free massage!). Essential Massage Therapy has a listing of Mom's Day Massage Packages just to the left of this contest on their newsletter - brilliant!
