Albuquerque, New Mexico (PRWEB) June 3, 2006 –-
SpaBoom announced that its spas have sold a collective total in excess of $1M in Instant Online Gift Certificates, with a highly lucrative Mother's Day holiday providing the final push through the million dollar barrier. SpaBoom's instant gift certificates can be emailed or printed at time of purchase from a spa's website, and come automatically branded with a spa, salon or massage therapist’s logo.
“This represents a significant event for both our spas and our company,” said Bill Bice, Founder, SpaBoom. “We've only been offering our Instant Gift Certificates for a little over a year now. In fact we only had one spa during Mother's Day last year compared to over 300 this year, so hitting the million dollar mark means we're well on the way to doing what we intend to do?provide a majority of the spas in the industry with an effective, inexpensive and beautiful way to sell their offerings online.”
Feedback from spas has been overwhelmingly positive. Nicole Cober, Owner of Soul Day Spa and Salon shares her thoughts on the SpaBoom Blog. “We did an amazing job with online sales! We were up 85% from last year! The process was so easy and the staff was extremely helpful! We were only up and running one week before Mother's Day and were among the top SpaBoom customers for sales volume. This was a great experience.”
SpaBoom's spas averaged almost $2,700 each in online gift certificate sales this Mother's Day, alone. The top 50% generated over $4,500 each, with the very high sellers generating over $7,100 each in sales. Interestingly enough, almost half of the sales occurred within the two days prior to and actually on Mother's Day, affirming the assumption that people really do wait until the last minute to purchase gifts, and when they're given an option, they take advantage of unique online buying opportunities like SpaBoom's Instant Online Gift Certificates represent.
Adopting SpaBoom's Instant Online Gift Certificates frees up considerable spa staff time, since all fulfillment occurs instantly and online in lieu of via time consuming traditional fulfillment processes. Additionally, spas receive GC Management, which provides spas with analysis helpful to staffing and scheduling-spas always know how many gift certificates have been redeemed and how many remain outstanding, key data for managing spas.
