Reaching Out to Massage Clients During the Holidays

Email icon on a smartphone or other device.

Connecting with clients during the holiday season has become a customary part of most MTs’ annual marketing plans. But that doesn’t mean your client communications this time of year have to be a hard sell. Showing an authentic interest in your clients’ well-being and offering solutions to their problems might be just as profitably effective as promoting that next great holiday special.

Self-Care Check-In

Haven’t heard from a client in a few months? The holidays offer a timely opportunity for you to do a check-in, express your appreciation for their business, and remind them of the value of self-care (especially this time of year). December is notorious for blinding people to their self-care needs, so help clients put it front of mind.

Biz Tip: Consider offering later hours throughout December to accommodate everyone’s crazy holiday schedules and to-do lists.
