on demand massage app

Massage therapy is probably no longer a luxury but a requirement to cope with the stress of today’s times. Lives have become so busy that we neglect our bodies a lot. In order to restore our body’s health and to bring some Zen back to our lives, it is important to treat ourselves to some happy massages. But one will find that looking for the right massage therapist can be a very cumbersome thing to do. People find it hard to search for a massage therapist who can deliver the exact nature of service that you require. This is where an app comes into the picture.

Today is a time where more and more people are bending towards suing apps to fulfill their daily requirements. People want to make their lives easier by depending on their smartphones for all their requirements. Your app is therefore going to be a product that will be catering to a big need.

How to use a Massage therapist app to choose your masseur?

These days there are many on demand massage apps available on the internet. If you have access to any of these apps, just log on to them and you will find a list of different categories available. These categories might include services like Full Body Massage, Facial massage etc. Once you have selected this category, you will be presented with a set of other subcategories within the main ones. For example, if you have chosen Full Body Massage, then the subcategories might include Thai massage, Ayurvedic massage, herbal massage etc.

On selecting the subcategory as well, the app then redirects you to the page which lists all the massage therapists available in the area. The list will have only service providers that offer the services you have asked for. You can go through each name and get to see their detailed profiles which will include their certifications, qualifications, reviews from previous users etc. You can now select whoever you think is right for your service.

Is an app reliable?

Well, most people ignore some very important things when they book a session with a massage therapist. The app enables you to focus on the important things. If you see an ad somewhere or give a call to the therapist, he isn’t going to tell you he doesn’t have certification or that his previous clients hated him. An app will allow you to see his real documentation as well as reviews from real clients. This is what makes such apps more reliable than any other source of booking such services. This is probably the biggest reason why such apps are gaining more and more popularity these days.

When you launch your own app for booking massage therapists, you will find that there will be an initial resistance in the form of hesitation. People might hesitate to book your services, but then again, with time there will be acceptance and loyalty.

You have to understand that people don’t like change. Even if they desperately need it. Remember the time when online shopping had just begun? There was so much hesitation and discomforts that people would choose to walk 10 blocks to the shop rather than sit comfortably in the house and order what they like. This is because they did not know how that worked. Now, online shopping is a multibillion trillion dollar industry globally and those who entered the market in the beginning are the ones that are doing the best.

So, if you had any doubt about when you should enter this industry or how you should proceed in this direction, then leave them at the curb. Now is the time. People are just turning the page to a new chapter of evolution. This is where even services can be booked from mobiles and service providers can be hired with the help of their mobile phones.

You can use this popularity!

Why stop at just getting a massage when you can create a successful business out of it! You don’t need to know how to massage! All you need to do is own the app. The on demand massage therapist app is designed in such a way that the service providers will register on the app and the clients can choose whichever service provider they want to.  As an app owner, you will continue to draw a commission from it every single time a service is booked through your app.

Alternate modes of income

If you thought that the only way you can make money from this app is through the commission that you will get when bookings are made then think again. An uber for massage therapy is a fantastic app. It allows you to offer various different mediums for people to showcase and broadcast their services. This means it naturally opens doors for you to make more money through a single app.

You can allow massage parlors to place ads on your app. This will ensure that you can get a huge amount for a little space on the app. This is by far the easiest way to make money from the application. The other thing that you can do is to get them to make paid listing. Say for instance a particular therapist wants his or her name to come on top of the rest in the listing on your app. In this case you can allow them to do that at a particular fee.

If you are all set to start the business you have to ensure that you do a little research about it. Go through what your competitors are doing in this field and how can you trump them. Look for a company who offers a ready to launch off the shelf kind of app.
