Email Marketing Reviews Question

Mary asks…

Hi, is this a scam email I received?

I’m pretty sure this is a scam since I don’t have any idea how they know I’m a finance and accounting major, and never gave my email address out to anyone, but I’m having a hard time figuring out just exactly what the scam is since they aren’t asking me for any personal information, even in follow up emails. anyway, this is what the email says:

Yes, it’s a scam. I am NOT a finance/accounting major and received the same email. A large company will not recruit employees in this manner and would not use a gmail account. Mine was from Also, a large company would not state that this position requires a HS diploma, but that a college degree is a plus. Most large companies expect a college degree so unless you are working an internship partnered with your school and are A) excelling in school and B) excelling in your internship, this type of offer would not be common. The other possibility of this type of job offer without a degree is that you are already employed by a company and have demonstrated outstanding performance and capability on the job.

You should cease communication; they are probably looking for your personal information…i.e. Social security number, birth date, name…information to steal your identity. You say they haven’t asked…yet, but that will come when they “determine” you are their ideal candidate and want to “finalize” your application.

Advertising/Marketing/Promotional Ideas for a Day Spa with Massages Facials & Waxings?

I’m a ‘spa coordinator” at a amazing Day Spa in Orange County CA, but besides my receptionist duties, I’m also helping out (as much as I can) with any promotional ideas, marketing, & a little advertising.

We already do a lot of different things but I’d love to hear what specific techniques, or ideas would make you or anyone come back to a spa.

What are you looking for? What would be the cherry on top that really made the sunday (so to speak lol)

Here’s what we have already…
– a website
– we send out flyers with promotional prices
– we send monthly emails with different deals
– we have 30min free GC we give away to clients, businesses, and homes
– “new guest specials” (discounted services for 1st-timers)
– a rewards cards where you refer people, write a review online, sign up for the membership, etc & recieve a certain number of pts for each thing & ultimately get a free hour massage or facial
– last but not least we have above average customer appreciation and service. we always put our clients first (which is the most important in my oppinion)

….but somehow we’re still not reaching our goals

I’d love some ideas of more specific things; maybe what someone you go to does to make you want to return! Or a spa that did something different & suprising in a good way…

scottparat answers:

I feel your pain! Lol i run my own massage business from a gym and sometimes feel the crunch of a slow day. Here are a few things i do to drum up business:

when it’s slow, ask the techs (if you force them to do it, they just won’t provide a good service) if anyone is interested in giving mini services for free to promote themselves. Like nail techs can do hand massages, estheticians can do paraffin dips, massage therapists can do chair massages, stylists can do a blow out. Make sure the tech has business cards with their names so they can give it to the client and say, “if you enjoyed that service, please come back and see me and i’ll give you 10% off your first service with me”. You’ll be surprised. I do free chair massages once a week for 2 hours and get a lot of new business this way.

Another idea is to create a “last minute appt” e-mail list. I have people on a list and whenever i have a cancellation or any openings in my day, i send them an e-mail first thing in the morning and let them know that i have the following openings and if they book a slot i’ll give them 20% off. That works wonders!

Finally, try doing an open house on the spas closed day. Invite your regulars and have them bring a friend or 2. Offer light ppetizers and refreshments. Have the staff perform the mini services and talk to the potential clients. Finally raffle off a GC (whatever amount you want), one for existing clients and one for the potential clients.

Hope these tips help and good luck!!!
