What I Love About My Outcall Massage Biz

What I Love About My Outcall Massage Biz

I love my little massage housecall business, after years of operating busy storefront businesses I was ready for a change! Here’s why I love it:

  1. The low overhead! Once you have your regular clients, your overhead is basically gas money, new sheets every now and then, massage lotion and ad free pandora.
  2. The money. I don’t really charge “extra” because of the low overhead, and I still make pretty good money. 10 clients a week @ $70 minus $100 for overhead is $600 a week for part time work. I’m happy with that, and sometimes I even get tips!
  3. Freedom! I’ve owned therapeutic massage offices, and a day spa. There were things I really liked about it, but it gets hard to take time off and travel, plus those pesky bills… With a house call business I can work a few long days to get everyone massaged, and take off!
  4. My clients are awesome. They understand if my kid is sick, I understand if they need to reschedule. It always seems to work out.
  5. I no longer work weekends. Try that at a spa!
  6. If I want to make extra money, I have a few places that I help out, mostly bed & breakfasts. But, I don’t have to and that’s how I like it.

It takes TIME to build up clientele, and most people don’t give it enough time or do enough networking and marketing. If you do, you can build up a side biz and then quit your day job!

I have a whole class on how to do this. We go in depth with video lessons, checklists, and more. This course is designed to be taken over a four week period, however you get everything all at once so that you can work at your own pace.

    Thank you very much for your kindness, caring and helpful serving nature Gael. I’ve been licensed less than a year and I was getting discouraged, clientele doesn’t come easy. I am putting myself out there promoting but I know now, I need to do more. Thanks for the encouragement.

    Thank you for sharing your experience. I love housecall model. I have a few private clients, but they are all friends and friends of friends. I would like to expand but a bit nervous about advertising to the public. How do you screen the “strangers” ?
