My 4Ps of Concrete Rose

1. Product: Services offered at the Concrete Rose, such as massages, facials, body treatments, nails, and toes etc. I want the people who come to have full services and be able to do so much in one spot. This way I can maximize the profit by having so many services done at my spa. I would have a product line available to be purchased for everything as well. Then as the business grows I will want to start my own product lines and sell them out of the business as well.

2. Price: The cost of the services offered. 

Massage: $75 to $200, depending on the length and the type of methods you select

Facial: $60 to $150 and up (masks, serums, and special eye treatments are usually an additional charge)

Manicure and pedicure: $75 to $150

Hair Styling: $50 to $200 and up

Makeup application: $25 to $75

3. Promotion: Advertising and marketing activities to promote the spa and its services. I would create a spa package that can start at $150 for two or more services and go up to about $450 for a few hours of special treatment. I will offer affordable all-day treatments, the prices can go as high as $750 or more for a full day filled with an array of indulgences and healing treatments that are sure to make my clients happy. I want to have a spa club that can get clients up to 50% off of a service or money off products. I will advertise by billboards and in mailers at the apartments and in the mail. Fliers that offer half-off days a few times a month. And promos for new clients.

4. Place: The physical location of the spa, will be near a very popular housing area in Brandon Florida. There are many places located near apartments and housing neighborhoods. I want the spa to be visually appealing to people who pass going from work and home. And with my location being near home. I can have a lot more people who are within walking distance.
