Re: HOW WAS 2012?

I feel the same about eft's, but there's nothing else I can think of to evolve too!

I should feel confident either way by the end of the 1st Q, but as well all know that is too late to start (or at least, not the best time) opening a new store.

I may just enter into another industry and introduce EFTs, amazingly enough some service industries have yet to evolve to re-occurring/automated payment plans.
I have always thought about other industries for EFT'S...what are some you have come up with besides the obvious ones likes gyms and personal training?

Amazingly I have been up this year.

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

Business is down 2% from last year. Cant complain but last year was not that great either. so???????? If things get tougher i will cut hours i am open so i can cut
payroll. Customers seem to really be cutting back on the extra's. Mostly Lotions.
Getting ready to bring in the formastar infarred body wrap machine. Great for weight
loss but i am wondering if i will be marketing more customers with other issues such
as pain from various problems. Any experience with this machine?

Dog sitting & daycare

Pet grooming

Drag racing strips (test and tune nights, discounts on race night)

Water parks

Yoga




We do an EFT for a hair that is (more or less) a way for clients to budget an expensive treatment.

We do Brazilian Blowouts for $350

We offer an EFT for $99/mo.
Every 3 months they get a Brazilian Blowout treatment and they save $53; we sell more BBTs.

You can structure EFTs in many ways.
