Opportunity: Despite the high visibility of this established brand, sales were flat. And they needed help to devise a way to grow and retain quality massage therapists. Destination Marketing’s massage marketing strategy was there to help.

Solution: The regional group partnered with Destination Marketing to develop and implement an effective and efficient massage marketing program focused on attracting new prospects to an existing category leader.
