Olympia, Washington — August 7, 2008 — A new blog for massage therapists building their businesses provides an opportunity for personal interaction with a massage marketing expert. Natural Touch Marketing™ for the Healing Arts, the premier supplier of massage marketing tools, has launched “Marketing Matters,” a blog devoted entirely to marketing massage. The blog encourages good business-building practices, while offering a forum for massage, bodywork, reiki, reflexology and other healing arts practitioners. Marketing Director and blogger Eileen Ryan started marketing at an early age. “I learned when I was a little kid that personality sells. At ten I planted half an acre of sweet corn which I sold at the Olympia Farmers’ Market. That’s when I found that people weren’t buying my corn because it was the best; they could buy corn anywhere. They stopped at my booth because I greeted everyone, made eye contact and made sure they knew I had grown the corn myself.”

Marketing Matters offers an opportunity for exploring creative solutions for specific marketing challenges with Ryan and participating healing arts practitioners. Join the conversation at www.naturaltouchmarketing.com/blog/marketing-matters.
