Last year’s Professional Spa and Wellness convention made a huge industry impact with their retail Key Performance Indicators (KPI) benchmarking  initiative. So it comes as no surprise that a featured topic at this year’s convention is “Improving retail sales at your spa: four simple steps” .

For our first Blab we also discussed product sales but  from the perspective of “Therapists Making Money.” This topic totally aligns with the importance of retail selling in the global spa  industry.

One of the key elements is engagement. Speaking of engagement Blab.im is one of the hottest tools in social media today. It’s still in beta testing but we think it’s perfect for our industry. Watch it in action in the video below. Tip:click your mouse on the verbiage to the right side of the screen to read the comments.

We’ll be doing Global Spa Blab every Friday at 7:30 pm Bangkok time,  so don’t forget to follow us on Blab.im and join the conversation.

It’s  been said that there is comfort in familiarity. Many of us eat the same lunch every day,  wear the same colors and go to the same hair stylist for years (who never updates our look).   At work, we’ll use the same service providers and vendors mostly because;
 1. They’ve been around forever and it’s too much of a hassle to change.
2. You know where everything is located on their website. After all they never update it except for price hikes.
3. They’re best friends with the CEO of your company.

I am based in Asia however it seems that when it comes to the spa industry in general, “don’t ask don’t tell” is the policy that folks often operate from. I had a massage the other day at a Five-Star hotel in my neighborhood. It was serviceable enough and I left feeling better. It was everything else that happened around the service which made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. Read More

I’m going to give you three powerful tips in this series. This is number one and make sure you stay tuned to get the other two because together they’re magical.

When I consulted with spa management in the United States they would often tell me that their number one problem was getting their staff to sell retail products.
