Paul Brown replied to Neil Jenh's discussion Dress Code for a Massage Therapist
"In my private practice, I wear loose, flowing pants, and t-shirts that have my business logo printed on them. For shoes, I wear driving moccassins or other shoes I can slip off easily - sometimes the foot is the best tool for the task at hand."

Paul Brown replied to Julie Castell's discussion Best Shoes for Massage Therapy
"I wear driving mocassins. Sometimes I do barefoot shiatsu work, and the shoes have to come on and off easily."

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Mass discounting massage services … Where do you stand?
"Yes, I like to personalize my correspondence; it makes it seem more like a real conversation that way.. :) Sorry I misspelled your name the first time, Lara."

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Mass discounting massage services … Where do you stand?
"I'm not offended - sometimes I can be very forthright in my conversation, but that's not offense :) Life is good! The discounts are a great way of getting people in the door. From there, it's up to the practitioner to get them to…"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Mass discounting massage services … Where do you stand?
"but many clients migrate from one therapist to another taking advantage of all the discounted services available in a community, never becoming a repeat client of any particular therapist. What is the basis for this assertion? It's certainly…"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Do you have a Groupon experience to share?
"I generally do not have same day appointments, and sometimes not even same week appointments, available. It's not uncommon for me to have to book clients a week or more out. In 2008, before the big downturn, I was booked two months out and I…"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Mass discounting massage services … Where do you stand?
"I find it difficult to believe you have never seen ads in newspapers or other places for introductory appointments with dentists or chiropractors or optometrists, Laura. This is a common practice. I disagree with Norm's premise clients become…"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Mass discounting massage services … Where do you stand?
"As you know, I wrote about my Groupon experience over in the other thread. But there are some important points about this: Lots of other health related services offer coupons for first-time appointments: chiropractors, personal trainers, dentists,…"

"Thanks!"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Do you have a Groupon experience to share?
"The original offer was a 60-minute massage voucher for $40, which is half my normal price. I am talking to another deal-a-day site about doing an offer, but the salesperson seems flaky, so I might not work with them. I would do another Groupon, and…"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Do you have a Groupon experience to share?
"OK, here's how the process went: In October, I was looking at ways of boosting my clients - last year was difficult, as I'm sure many of you can attest - and a hair-burner friend of mine suggested Groupon, as his salon had done one and…"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Do you have a Groupon experience to share?
"I can say that I have had good success in rebooking groupon voucher clients, either right at the time of the session, or later on with follow-up calls, or they just booked themselves with no prompting. I believe that the long term will be a net…"

Paul Brown replied to Norm Green - My Receptionist's discussion Do you have a Groupon experience to share?
"The reason why it worked for me isn't because I'm a workhorse who can do a lot of massage - because I limit my work to four hours of bodywork a day (five on occasion), but because I took a hard look at how many massages I thought I could…"
