It’s important to keep up with marketing to pregnant and postnatal women as the client base is constantly refreshing. We’ve worked really hard on creating a fantastic brand and website that attracts hundreds of clients from far and wide. They know they are getting a high quality service like no other. More than 55% of our clients come to us through Google (non-paid) listing. A further 20% come through client referrals. Being part of the Mumanu team will give you a piece of the pie without any technical effort on your part. We average a 50% repeat client rate.
Mumanu founder and tutor, Samantha Thurlby-Brooks, has been an advanced specialist in pregnancy, labour & postnatal massage since 2005. In that time she’s massaged nearly 4,000 pregnant women. She’s also the only person in Europe qualified to teach BirthWorks International Childbirth Classes. Returning to the UK in 2014, after spending many years in New Zealand, Samantha has built up an incredibly busy practice. In just two years she’s fully booked (10-13 clients a week) for weeks in advance, bringing in an average revenue of £2,200 a month… that’s a whole lot of money for massaging part-time/two to three people per day. Being busy with running the Mumanu office and products limits her available massage time. By training others up to work with us, Samantha can spend less time massaging and more time getting you busy.
