Even before experiencing a global crisis, float centers have had a hard time navigating social media, marketing, and just generally keeping their customers engaged. That struggle is even more real in the wake of the COVID pandemic.
We’ve spent the last two months (in between bathrobe interviews) putting together the Buoy Project, an ever-growing collection of marketing materials and content that will help you save time and bring in new customers.
Throughout the years, Float Tank Solutions has seen float centers evolve from ideas, to plans, to buildings, to destinations for healing, growth, and community. Hundreds of entrepreneurs from all around the world have worked with us to plan and build their centers – now, we want to help you to grow and thrive.
Coming up with fresh ideas and good content while also keeping abreast of the latest trends is not only challenging – it can be a full time job. Outsourcing is a common solution, but not everyone can afford to hire a marketing agency or someone to handle their social media, and our industry is so specific it’s hard for an outsider to produce truly good material.
The Buoy Project helps lighten the burden of social media, website, and newsletter content for float centers. This is an offer designed to amplify your current social media, whether you manage it yourself, have an employee run things, or have hired out a marketing company.
It’s a total social media toolkit designed specifically for float centers. As a monthly subscription, you get:
- 10+ Float Centric Social Media Posts
- 500-750 Word Blog Post w/ Images
- Customizable Email Newsletter
- Content Calendar Posting Schedule
- Access to All Historical Marketing Content
This content is designed to be adaptable. If you want to add a vector logo, host the blogs on your website, and change the template newsletter to include updates from your shop, we’re giving you all the tools to do that. This won’t replace your own marketing efforts, but it will give you a solid foundation and lift up what you’re already doing.
We’ve priced this to be accessible for everyone in the industry.
If you want to pay for the Buoy project on a month-to-month basis, it’s $225. If you’re able to commit to a full year, you’ll only be charged $150 each month, and you’ll get access to our growing archive of past blogs and images.
If you sign on before July 31st, you get the whole deal for only $75 a month for the first year. And, if that doesn’t work for you for whatever reason, but you think this could be helpful, let us know and we’ll work something out. We want this to be a useful resource for everyone who needs it.
We’ve also got more than just Marketing in mind…
We want to create an infrastructure that can carry floating forward and weather future storms, not just the one we’re in now. The Buoy Project will evolve with the needs and the desires of the industry, and we already have some things in the works.
While that’s very theoretical, we’ve got a lot of ideas we want to pursue, but only if you want to be a part of them! If you’d like to know more about our proposed timeline, or about more specifics for the project as a whole, check out the main page for The Buoy Project.
We’ve felt the community come together now more than ever, and we want to use this momentum to really help achieve something big for the industry. Check it out and see for yourself and let us know what you think.
September came and went like a flash, while everyone was recovering from the whirlwind that was the Float Conference, Graham and Ashkahn were fielding questions about all things great and small in the industry. Here’s a handful of our favorites. When is the Best Time...
In 2014 we started gathering answers to a survey that would eventually become the very first State of the Float Industry Report. We’ve released one every year since, and this year we (once again) have the most contributions that we’ve ever had. In total, 293 existing...
If there is a single theme to the episodes this month it’s guest hosts. With all the preparing we did for the Float Conference, Ashkahn didn’t have much time to take his spot on the mic, but we got plenty of great people to fill in. This means that the topics covered...
It was absolutely our pleasure to, once again, host the Float Conference here in Portland. We couldn’t help but be slightly nostalgic remembering all the Conferences we’ve held, all the way back to 2012. Below is the complete introduction for this year’s program intro. While this may be our last year hosting, we look forward to what the rest of the industry has in store for us in the future.
This month has been filled with some amazing episodes! With our run up to the Float Conference, we’ve mixed things up a bit for the podcast. Ashkahn has taken on talking to the speakers at the Conference and giving them an opportunity to speak directly to the industry...
It’s Float On’s final year hosting the Float Conference this year. The wails from all our floaty friends can be heard throughout the galaxy as we mourn the end of an era. But, please, dry your eyes, float industry, because this year is going to be amazing.
There’s absolutely no way we’re not going out with a bang, so buckle up and buy your tickets. We’re planning on making this the best Float Conference yet! We have fresh speakers, amazing activities, new podcasts, and a very full schedule. Everything is going to be bigger and better and the parties are going to be off the hook!
Here’s a little bit from some of us putting this event together about what we’re excited about this year.
So, I know that I complain every month about how difficult it is to pick the top 5 each month, but this month it was easy. June was filled with excellent episodes, but there’s a handful of special ones that were just a bit more awesome than the rest (we also blatantly...
We’re gathering responses for our 2018 Industry Report through the end of June, and we once again need your help.
Please take a brief moment to answer a few questions about your float center (or future float center) – it may be the easiest thing you can do to contribute to the growth of floatation around the world.
The seasons are changing now. It’s hard to believe it’s already June, but it certainly is welcome. The weather’s warm, birds are chirping, plants are pollinating, and we have another list of Top 5 episodes of the Daily Solutions Podcast. There really are some amazing...
In another installment of our ongoing series, we’re taking a look at Modern Gravity in Edmonton, Alberta. Matt and J.P., the owners of the center, share what success means to them. Back in 2013, there wasn’t a single float center near Edmonton, so these guys...
