Wellness Week™ Case Study: Oasys Day Spa

success storySpaFinder’s Wellness Week™, the nation’s largest wellness event, is March 21-27. Previous remarkable PR efforts, prime advertising on TV and in magazines, and eminent corporate sponsors have helped Wellness Week™  prove that it can deliver great publicity, marketing, and new customers to spas, wellness centers, and fitness facilities across the nation —  and past Wellness Week™ participants agree. Here’s what one of our valued partners has to say:
 
Oasys Day Spa (Wood-Ridge, NJ)

Oasys Day Spa is a unique, successful day spa located in Wood-Ridge, New Jersey (Bergen County), a bedroom community not far from New York City. Every aspect of Oasys is designed to conjure an escape to the Caribbean, from the striking blue walls and oceanic tiles to the special island-themed treatments and products.

In September 2010, Oasys participated in its second “SpaFinder Deal Days, the Wellness Week™,” and director Angel Martinez reports it was an “absolute success” — the entire promotion “worked fantastically” — and the spa’s customer feedback has been “tremendous.” Martinez notes  while Oasys was “bombarded” with business for both Deal Days events, by the second weeklong event the spa was ready, with SpaFinder helping to orchestrate bookings well in advance, and Martinez adjusting personnel and scheduling to accommodate the major increase in business. Oasys reports the spa was 100% booked/at capacity for the entire week. In fact, the response was so powerful the spa had to extend the promotion longer to ensure both new and loyal customers could take advantage, and that the spa could deliver A-1 service to every client.

Unlike many online group buying or “spa deal” promotions, Oasys reports that SpaFinder’s Wellness Week™ attracted a significant number of new clients and clients who turned into repeat customers: Roughly 40-50% of customers booking that week were new to the spa, and over 10% of those came back again promptly.

Martinez attributes much success to Oasys and SpaFinder working so well in tandem on marketing. For instance, the spa’s own emails to clients created a viral chain reaction, with people passing on news of the savings to friends and family; Oasys also found SpaFinder’s marketing toolkit very useful. (The spa got creative with it, by having SpaFinder create custom artwork so it could put up a huge “Wellness Week™” banner outside that made a big splash.)

In sum, Martinez reports Oasys will “most definitely” be participating in the next Wellness Week™ (March 2011), to continue to drive more of the new and repeat business the promotion has delivered on each time.

Use Reviews to Your Advantage this Wellness Week™

ReviewsBoost your reviews in time for Wellness Week™ and Valentine’s Day!

Have your clients take advantage of SpaFinder’s review section, and invite them to post a review on your SpaFinder.com overview following a visit to your spa or wellness facility. Reviews are a pertinent aspect of your spa’s listing, as they help clients decide which spa to choose and set you apart  from the hundreds of competing spas across the nation, especially in your local area.

Valentine’s Day and Wellness Week™ are peak times when it comes to consumers searching for spas, which likely means more traffic to your spa’s overview page. Here are a couple of quick tips to beef up your reviews:

  • Have your receptionist or even spa therapist invite clients to submit a review online. Yes, it’s that simple.
  • Leave a little framed note by your reception desk reminding guests to post their thoughts about their spa day on SpaFinder.com.
  • Go even further and hand out reminder cards asking them to take a few minutes when they get home and share their experience others.
  • Be tuned in to SpaFinder’s online review guidelines and standards.
  • Remind clients that they can earn SpaFinder Rewards (redeemable for SpaFinder Gift Certificates good at 5,000 spas) by submitting a review here.
  • Publicly respond to clients who have already posted a review to generate a conversation.


Start asking – so they can start posting!

Wellness Week™ Was a Huge Success!

SpaFinder Deal DaysSpaFinder Deal Days, the Wellness Week™ is complete, and was a huge success, thanks to you, our partners. 
 
The Wellness Week™ generated terrific press, along with propelling thousands of new customers to spas, fitness, and wellness centers around the nation. Hundreds of consumers took the time to write us about notable/positive experiences they had during this terrific week of health and wellness.

“I had a great massage and facial experience. I plan on returning to this business in the near future with or without a special discount/offer.”

“I chose a different spa for each service to get to experience different spas around town…I had a facial and massage that were marvelous.”

“I was able to try services I would normally never try (just to ensure I didn’t end up paying full price for a service I didn’t like). I get comfortable with what I’m familiar with and this was an opportunity to venture outside my comfort zone and try both a new spa and new service.”

Deal Days participants also recently took part in a survey dedicated to the weeklong event – and the results are outstanding! Here are just a few of the findings.

  • Virtually 100% (99.5%!) hope there will be more Deal Days/Wellness Weeks in the future — and that they would personally take advantage of it again.
  • Two in three Deal Days consumers report they went to a spa or fitness/wellness center they’d personally never tried before. Of those first timers, 85% report they would return and recommend to friends.
  • Sixty-seven percent booked a deal just for themselves – and 32% booked for both themselves and a gift for another person.
