Albuquerque, New Mexico (PRWEB) August 28, 2007
Spas using SpaBoom's Instant Online Gift Certificates have tallied up over $10M in Instant Online Gift Certificate sales, with over half of those sold within 72 hours of gift giving holidays. By this time last summer those spas had sold $1M. As of today, total sales exceed $10M. Turns out buyers tend to procrastinate, and welcome online gift options that respect their need to purchase last minute, but still deliver high-quality, personalized offerings.
"Spa gifts like massage, facials, manicures, pedicures, body wraps and combinations thereof make ideal tokens of appreciation," said Bill Bice, founder of SpaBoom. "The overlap between the national trend to shop online and businesses establishing websites geared to e-commerce is where our technology fits in."
Spas, salons and massage therapists across the nation that offer Instant Gift Certificates via their websites often realize significant revenue increases and save considerable staff time as they reach the shoppers who tend to not only prefer the online shopping venue, but often wait until the last minute to embark on that shopping expedition.
"There's a tendency for over-scheduled shoppers to wait until the eleventh hour to make even emotionally significant purchases," said Stephany Toman, SpaBoom's Director of Marketing. "We believe that beautiful, personalized, heartfelt gifts for spa and massage services fill an important consumer need. The ability to email or print right at time of purchase presents buyers options they need to deliver long-distance and online, as well as up close and in an attractive card if they prefer."
SpaBoom helps spas take full advantage of their online spa marketing efforts by providing instant online gift certificate functionality and management, appointment requests, and Spa Emergency, their national online directory of spas offering instant gift certificates. Simply put, we're here to make your website work as hard as you do to build your business and boost your bottom line. To learn more, please visit http://www.spaboom.com.
