NCBTMB Announces Partnership with Numi, Details Exclusive Savings for Members
Burr Ridge, Ill. (April 26, 2017)—The National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage & Bodywork (NCBTMB) announced today a new Affiliate Partnership with Numi, a mobile platform designed to help independent massage therapists find new clients. Within the partnership, all active NCBTMB members save 25% on Numi’s Verified Profile listings, effective immediately.
Numi is a free mobile app for independent massage therapy practitioners, and provides a platform for therapists to respond directly to Appointment Requests from consumers. Therapists can respond to requests with price quotes, as well as accept or decline appointment requests. Appointment requests include a review of the customer’s profile, past therapist reviews, as well as the requested time, date, location, and massage style for the appointment.
While the app is free to therapists, those looking for extra exposure and instant credibility have the option to purchase a Verified Profile badge to add to their Numi profile. This badge represents that the information displayed has been reviewed and all credentials have been verified by Numi. The Verified Profile option is a one-time purchase retailing at $25.00. NCBTMB members save 25% off the retail price at checkout using the appropriate promotional code.
“We were impressed by the platform Numi has thoughtfully created, and knew our members would find great value in the opportunity to find and book new clients,” explained Vanessa Spasovski, marketing and public relations manager, NCBTMB. “Numi has also agreed to develop a profile highlight for our Board Certified Massage Therapists and Specialty Certificate holders to showcase higher credentials within the app’s next update. This will empower NCBTMB members to stand out from the rest, and creates a new and exciting pathway to educate consumers about higher credentials.”
Therapists earn 100% of the price they dictate within every accepted appointment request. The app allows for therapists to accept cash and credit card payments via PayPal. Consumers are responsible for Numi’s standard $20.00 surcharge, in addition to the therapist’s offer price, upon checkout.
"We are beyond grateful for this opportunity to be a part of the largest network of Board Certified Massage Therapy practitioners," commented Alex Rowe, co-founder, Numi. "These therapists have gone above and beyond to achieve their credential, and we hope to further support that achievement by helping to connect them with new clients who appreciate such efforts. Furthermore, through our partnership with NCBTMB, we aspire to bring intelligent and connected ways for the massage therapy industry to flourish.”
