Simple, Affordable Ways to Attract New Clients

As the competition in the massage therapy world stiffens up, here at Bodysite Builder we want to help you reach your maximum potential and hit your goals. We know it’s not easy financially in the beginning to get the advertising you need, especially when 69% of practicing therapists are sole practitioners, according to the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA). Here are some tips to help you promote your business without spending a fortune!



Word-of-mouth referrals are always the best, but sometimes the method doesn’t work as fast as we would like. To move things along a little bit faster, make an incentive for your current clients to refer you. Here’s an example, “Receive a complimentary massage after referring 2 clients to us.” You can bend this however you like to accommodate to your practice, of course.


Design a flyer and print out a handful of them. Every time you go to public facilities, make sure to leave some in a visible location. Ask your local businesses to help promote! Consider places that your potential clients would go and leave some around. Go to a high foot traffic area and hand them out yourself. This is a great way to raise awareness about your business locally.


We’ve all seen them at least once before. Those boxes that ask you to enter your info and submit your chance for something free. Most likely, you’ve even entered one yourself! Try setting up a few of these boxes in waiting areas of offices or places you think would generate a lot of attention. Offer to win a free 30-minute massage and consultation, and people will be drawn to enter. Everyone loves something FREE! If they don’t win, you will have their contact information to let them know about your referral program.


Other local businesses are your support team. They want to be able to help you get business to help their own. Get to know them, and offer them packages. Ask them if they can hand out coupons for your business, or if you could set up a display of flyers or of business cards. Many businesses will not have a problem with this helping your promote, especially if you’re willing to return the favor.
