I've always fancied training in indian head massage and time/money have allowed me to do that now. I'm halfway through the course and love it. Now I know I want to do 'something' with it I'd like to ask for any tips or advice on what I could do next. I've got a marketing background so will use that to do some local market research and the best way to promote myself. I know I could look into hiring a chair/room and working with local hairdressers, go along to events offering freebies in exchange for the marketing opportunity. There are options of working mobile or from my home. I'm just weighing my options up but would really appreciate thoughts and advice from anyone who's done similar or anyone who has ideas! Thank you.
Working mobile might be the way to go? Renting a chair in a hairdressers might have overheads and you might spend time sitting around waiting when you have no clients. How about some leaflets posted around your local area? Also offering treatments to family and friends might get you some recommendations. Word of mouth is usually the best way to get business. The idea of offering freebies at events is a good idea too. Maybe you could study a second treatment to add once you have completed Indian head massage. Good luck! It's great to follow your passion
Sorry to jump on your post! I am thinking of doing something similar to this (specifically thinking about Pilates training and reflexology) so that I can offer both pre/ante-natally. I also have a marketing background. Are you hoping to run this as a small business or alongside other work? I cant work out how profitable it's going to be and am struggling to make the 'leap'!
