A few of the many programs offered are:
Brief Make the KLH Wellness Center a household name Increase the client base Promote all products and services to new and existing clients Promote the KLH Aromatic products and services Carol Mejia of Multi-Sol met with Kimberly Hensarling of the KLH Wellness Center at the end of April 2008. Kimberly requested the following: In order to fulfill the clients brief, Multi-Sol considered various media options and recommend a wide range of products in order to deliver the message to the largest number of the selected target audience.
Branding KHL Wellness Center Services Practitioner/Teacher Certification Workshops Seminars KLH Aromatics Products Services The following products and services will require both individual and joint branding. Due to the current estimated budget, it is suggested at this time that the paid for campaign concentrates on promoting the KLH Aromatics through the KLH Wellness Center.
Current Marketing Currently the KLH Wellness Center relies heavily on word of mouth promoting. This is slowly bringing in new business but not quickly enough to keep every practitioner busy or to allow the center to grow. They are also running a full page ad in Skirt Magazine. This appears to be working although advertising in only one medium limits both the number of people who see the ad and also the number of times each ad is seen. The ad in Skirt is also, although large, full of so much information it is felt that most readers will not take the time to read it.
Competition There are various companies and individuals offering similar services in the local area. Budding Buddha, Maureen Donohue, LMT Charleston Therapeutic Massage Healing Hands, Rachel Hazelwood, LMT The Pink Dolphin, Dianne Thomas
Target Audience Current Demographic Women Late Twenties to Early Thirties High Profile High Income Proposed Demographic Women Mid Twenties to Early Fifties High Income Home Owners
Goals KLH Wellness Center 10 – 15 regular clients per practitioner Regular, well attended workshops and seminars. KLH Aromatics 3 – 6 months: Products sold in between 5 – 10 local outlets. 6 – 12 months: Products sold in between 2 – 4 national outlets.

Paid For Advertising Schedule 2008 Advertising Campaign MediaSpace CostComments JanFebMarAprMayJuneJulyAugSeptOctNovDec Total Skirt Magazine1/4 page color $600 1st $2,400 Post & Courier2 col x 4" b&w $859Style Section 4th1st 5th $3,436 Charleston Magazine1/4 page color $1,350 1st $5,400 RSVPPostcard $2,950 12th 2,950 Fresh Fields Almanac2/3 page$5501st 1,100 Direct MailPostcard$75 100 mailings XX X X $300 $15,586 Due to budget limitations it is recommended, at this time, to promote the Aromatherapy side of the business through the KLH Wellness Center. As more marketing money becomes available Aromatherapy will be promoted separately.
Ad Copy Ads need to be simple, concise and to the point Too much information is distracting and causes the reader to become bored Graphics should be bold There should be a consistency throughout the campaign The reader should be drawn in by the ad They should have a clear message and call to action
Conversion Rate Although advertising, marketing and PR is never an exact science the proposed campaign will thoroughly reach the target market, giving them ample time to repeatedly see the ads and various messages. If each practitioner receives ten new regular clients who contract for six sessions at $75 each that would bring an extra $22,500 into the KLH Wellness Center. Each client could also be up-sold to other products, services, workshops and seminars. They would also be added to the mailing list and email marketing campaign.
Recommendations – PR Press Releases Send out monthly press releases to the core list of publications Send out random press releases as necessary Register With Search Engines Local, yahoo, Google etc. Interview/Talk Show Appearances Local TV, Radio, National TV etc. Event Sponsorship To be decided MySpace/Face Book A page on both of these would allow you to network and spread the word about what you offer Membership Discounts Produce a membership allowing members to receive products and services at a reduced price Joint Relevant Organizations Charleston Chamber of Commerce, American Holistic Health Association etc. Strategically Placed Leaflets and Brochures Place promotional material in local complementary businesses. Continuity Program Have all visitors to the center complete a short survey to collect relevant information

Other Considerations and Recommendations The home page/landing page of the website should always reflect the monthly theme. The layout of the website needs some tweaking. The email newsletter needs some tweaking. The calendar should be planned ahead of time and not changed. A logo should be created and used on all publicity material. There needs to be a sign outside the building. The infrastructure within the company needs to be solid and in place ready to accept new business. Events/seminars etc. should be planned well ahead of time.
