Do You Know the True Value of Your Massage Customers?


It is crucial to understand their massage value to make the most of the efficiency of your treatments and get the most from exactly what you do. Numerous massage therapists think all their customers are similarly important and are grateful for any business they get. You should believe in a different way, to optimize your business and understand which customers are more "important" than others.


Ask yourself the following concerns:

Do you have customers who appear late or cancel their visits at the last minute?

Do you have customers who never ever refer others?

Do you have customers who never ever tip you?

Do you have customers who just use your services when you use a unique discount rate?


If you have customers such as the above, it is vital to understand that they might be eliminating value from your business, instead of contributing to it. If I were to recommend that you may not desire this kind of customer on your books you may believe, "Obviously, I do - a customer patronizes!" This is not constantly the case. You should look at the larger photo. Even if you trim your customer base, this does not indicate you're shooting yourself in the foot. If somebody removes from your massage business instead of contributing to it, this is bad for business. Somebody disappointing up or only utilizing you when you have a special deal on isn't really a valued client. They are a drain on what you are providing and if they do not use their scheduled slot, you might have a valued client in their place, who will appear, will pay and will most likely tip and rebook.
