FAQs About MassageGPS.com for SUBSCRIBERS

FAQ's about MassageGPS.com for MTs and Bodyworkers
Why is the directory almost empty?
We launched in late 2009. We aim to personally contact every MT and Bodyworker we can to get our site populated. Unlike other directories, we are a managed website directory and want only professional, qualified Massage Therapists and Bodyworkers listed with us. Our Staff is comprised of many MTs who are dedicated to creating a comprehensive directory of high quality MTs and Bodyworkers who want to grow their business or keep an online presence. We are looking to our members to help us get the word out about our site. Share your listing with your clients, friends and other MTs and Bodyworkers!!
What is the benefit of listing with MassageGPS?
Another good question! We are optimized for Google Searches and have the potential to reach tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of potential and active clients for therapists through a centralized website. From our site subscribers at the All listing levels, except the FREE level, can make a link to your own website through MassageGPS, as well as send email from your Listing. Clients find MassageGPS easily which helps them locate you, their therapist, through name, city, zip code, technique, promotions or category searches much more effectively than searching for a single website name for a single business for which they may not remember the exact name or address. From the MassageGPS site the client can easily link to your website or email and make referrals about you to others all in one place!!
The other benefit for MTs is: you now have a centralized location to find equipment, sell equipment, find jobs, classes, list your promotions or connect with other MTs and Bodyworkers through email contact and our Blog. MassageGPS also keeps its Users informed via the Articles section and our Blog. As this site grows we will continue to add features and functions that make using MassageGPS automatic for your clients and you due to the ease of use and functionality of the site!
