How to Start a Mobile Spa Business

  • 12 expert advise

Mobile spas have been picking up in popularity because of the convenience they give to customers. Realizing this, you may have thought of starting a mobile spa but you don’t know what you need.

This article will guide you through the steps of setting up your very own mobile spa business.

The spa is already a lucrative business. People frequent spas to relax by getting themselves a massage, or to work out their beauties by availing of facials, hair care and nail care services. What’s more, rich people like to frequent spas because they have the money to pay for them. There are rich people who like to have the spa come to their homes, which is possible now because of the mobile spa. Here are the important things that you need to have when you want to start a mobile spa business:

Financing for Mobile Spa Business

You would need a lot of money as mobile spa needs specialized equipment for a lot of services. The total money that you have to spend on your equipment depends on the type and number of equipment that you will procure. Since it is mobile, this type of spa does not need office space although you may choose to rent some space just to give your business a presence.

One other reason for the high amount for financing is the salary for your employees. Spa employees are paid regularly every month, regardless of whether or not you have serviced people. You need to have some money set aside for this just in case business is slow, or else you’ll end incurring losses due to the salaries alone.

Qualified Employees

To boost up the reputation of your mobile spa, you need to have only the best employees that there are in the industry. It is these employees that will be responsible for the feedbacks that will ultimately make or break your fledgling mobile spa business. You would need these kinds of employees for your spa:

  • Masseurs, preferably skilled in these massages:
    - Aromatherapy
    - Deep tissue
    - Swedish
    - Stone Therapy
    - Thai
    - Indian head massage
    - Seated chair massage
  • Reflexologists
  • Beauticians for your facial, hair and nail services.

Making Contacts for Mobile Spa Business

Mobile spas thrive on having contacts, as these contacts will be the ones to hook you up with clients. You can build up contacts by either working first in a mobile spa company, or to conduct a successful marketing campaign.

People most of the times spend max of their time surfing the Internet and finding the information that they need there. You can take advantage of this by setting up a website for your company that is already optimized for the search engines. Using your website, you can launch a viral marketing campaign by posting invites in social networking sites as well as forums. You can choose to give out calling cards and flyers to people as well.

    I would like to start a mobile business. I need to know if you have any information if I have an idea to make any change or add on to a commercial vehicle, to make it workable for my mobile business to be used for the type of business I have in mind. I also need to know if this would be an patent or trade mark needed by law? And with this idea how would I go at getting the manufacturing start to finish? And the cost of manufacturing, with no credit, no money, and no family or friends that can help me? Along with other business starting needs. This is not for any mobile business you already have on your list. I am sorry, but can you help me with any information please. Thank You!

I already got my bus fictitious name filed and next will get my business lic. I am doing this solo, no employees.

I plan on getting table top equipment. Is there a check list I could use to make sure I have everything I need? and I want to be legal!!! I will prob use a web site through NCBTMB since I am certified through them and state certified as well. Thanks for your assistance! Donna

  • 127. James expert adviser said on 3/9/2011 11:17:49 PM
    @Amman, if you are planning to start one in Dakar, Senegal then you got to survey the market first. A business can't exist long if there is no demand for it. If you think there is demand for such a service then major the demand, is it huge, moderate or low. If it is low and you have other things to do then keep this plan aside. If it is moderate or high then judge your budget and go from there with a biz plan.

    Hello, I am a professional makeup artist 13 years there, besides also Minister makeup courses and makeup design eyebrows, and I have some other notions of aesthetics. How I ended up moving to Amman, Jordan and I have many great contacts with the elite of the city, I think the mobile spa would be a great way. How do I make for more details?

    @Rita, Tell me more about who you want to market to in Tacoma?  Perhaps we can share some ideas that have worked very well, and they can help you in getting started.

    @Disha, Sorry Disha I can only provide information relating to the UK, Europe and North America as this is the market I am based in. I wouldn't be able to help in you in regards to India or Asia.

    @Kathy Hill, In London, Ontario, we have several recommendations that you may find as a competitive edge in offerings to your clientele. You can email me and we can arrange a time to discuss.
