The more spa and wellness operators know about their guests and community, the more they can leverage opportunities to grow their business through targeted and demographic marketing.

SpaSoft offers an activity management system with multiple tools and trackable metrics to allow businesses to better understand their customer base and identify growth opportunities based on the collected data.

Within the system, spas are able to define unique guest classifications and gather specific details such as age, occupation, language, citizenship, interests and why they originally became customers.

Promotions and discounts can also be tracked to help analyse customer responses to special offers and a survey link can be added to an automated post-visit email to gather customer feedback.

Using this collected data, our clients can better understand their customer base and provide unique targeted offers to specific demographic groups.

We realise that many wellness properties have multi-dimensional facilities that extend beyond the spa. Our clients can just key in a customer’s birth date, gender or member sign-up date into our system and run a multitude of reports to find out which of their services are the most popular within certain market demographics.

Our clients can also monitor customer feedback through Book4Time’s analytic reports. These show which customers are receiving their services or participating in classes or activities, which helps them to allocate operational budgets.

Most spa software solutions are great for managing operations at a single facility, however, Book4Time offers a choice of modules to ensure the management of spa operations, fitness classes, rentals and other activities become easy to administer.

We’re also working with our clients to help them analyse their customer data and testimonials to further enhance Book4Time’s effective market segmentation capabilities.

Vagaro allows users to create general tags – a keyword or phrase that can be added to a customer’s profile. For example, ‘VIP’ can be used to designate specific profiles with that status, and an email marketing campaign can be filtered to be sent specifically to customers with this tag – this way you ensure that the offer gets sent to the customers most likely to act on it.

Our platform also collects different data points that can be used for campaign segmentation, these include new customers; customer birthdays; repeat business; customer spend; and customers with certain preferences or linked to a specific employee.

Regarding ROI measurement, after an email marketing campaign has been sent out, you can see how many were delivered, opened, how many clicks on the CTA button and how many appointments were booked directly from the campaign. Based on this analysis, operators can easily determine which offers are performing well and which need improvement or refining.

Analytical data can also be collected from multiple revenue streams besides the standard service appointment, including online sales, merchant services and treatment bookings. Daily deals or digital flyers can also be created and posted on the Vagaro marketplace by using pre-made templates, which offer an easy way to specifically target potential customers in the vicinity.

Our clients are able to boost ROI, increase retention, improve products and services and save time, without increasing expense. Through segmentation analysis, spas can determine how to run efficiently year-round by observing fluctuation and making data-informed decisions – so they know exactly who to target and when.

In a recent study, 22 per cent of Mindbody spa and wellness clients admitted that customer acquisition and/or retention is their biggest challenge right now.

A key part of bringing in and retaining customers is the ability to market strategically to varying demographics, however, many wellness businesses don’t have the time, the knowledge or the staff needed to create sophisticated marketing programmes.

Mindbody’s Marketing Suite puts marketing on autopilot. It helps keep schedules full by automating marketing operations with the creation of personalised, highly targeted email and text campaigns – allowing spas to reach out to their customers with perfectly-timed reminders to rebook, based on their interests and needs.

The software creates personalised campaigns for varying demographics and can also use real-time customer feedback to adjust the campaign messaging to suit customer needs.

Businesses may typically see customers spending five times the cost of their monthly subscription in purchases, and can benefit from the additional exposure they get from online reviews inspired by Marketing Suite interactions.

TAC software uses an integrated CRM module for market segmentation, which can be used to better understand customer preferences and allows the targeted marketing of spa and wellness promotions to specific demographic groups.

The software also promotes ‘hot deal’ last-minute offers on available spa appointments, as well as special offers that customers are only able to reserve on selected days.

The daily quota for these deals can be individually defined and adjusted at any time by the spa operator. These appointments can be reserved quickly and booked online in real-time. Promotional codes can be used to reach both existing and new guests in a targeted manner.

Trial products are offered at a reduced price on-site, while birthday discounts are sent out by email to strengthen long-term relationships with existing customers.

‘Bring a friend’ campaigns, as well as campaigns for new products via traditional or digital media, can also increase the company’s reach for potential new customers into different demographic groups.

In this way, connections with existing customers are maintained, while new customers are constantly being reached.

SpaSpace software is supported by a powerful CRM tool that allows spa and wellness operators to understand the needs of their customers, which helps with effective, targeted promotional activities.

To ensure that wellness experiences within a spa environment are not offered on a ‘one-size-fits-all’ basis, our patent-pending software tracks guest usage and monitors ratings to assist spa and wellness operators in adapting their marketing activities and customising their services to suit guest experiences in each demographic.

Each service can then be customised specifically and guest feedback allows our software to learn and refine marketing campaigns as required. This means that spa operators don’t need to spend time refining specific protocols that may not fit the needs of every guest and allows more time for spa professionals to focus on providing services that have been curated for their exact needs.

Via data from the analytics reporting, we’ve seen a 25 per cent improvement in guest satisfaction at spas using our market segmentation software.

With Trybe, operators can segment their database using customer labels which enable them to segment and analyse their market, based on specific factors, such as demographics.

Using the data collected from these reports, operators can then create packages and promotions with targeted add-ons or up-sells.

Bookings of targeted packages and promotions are automatically fed into Trybe’s reporting tool, enabling operators to analyse campaign success, while the system automatically updates the Trybe booking engine so customers can review the data straight away.

Trybe has the ability to target a wide range of customer profiles, so operators can create and sell as many targeted treatments, classes, packages, and promotions as they wish.

Pulling straight from the operator’s live inventory, these can then be booked and paid for without the need for a staff member to process them. This allows operators to be reactive to customer demands, and also reap the rewards of out-of-hours bookings.

Mother’s Day packages, for example, offer up-sell opportunities such as the purchase of a bottle of champagne on arrival. Small prompts like this give guests the power to tailor their experience at the click of a button.
