ABMP Website Builder Contest

By Editorial Staff

It’s True—You Need a Website
A website is a critical component to any business, but especially so for massage therapists and bodyworkers.
Did you know that an ABMP survey of consumers found that 50 percent of respondents said they would look for a massage therapist on the Internet?1
That means if you don’t have a website, you likely don’t exist for at least half the population.
From a marketing perspective, think of your website as your digital business card. Just like the business cards in your wallet, a website is something you just can’t do without.
