|Roswell Georgia - July 31, 2007 - Estimates of the
number of Spa consumer’s range from 30 to 60 million active spa goers in
North America alone. Elisa Kayson, SpaClique.com’s Publisher gave her elevator
speech: “take social networking concepts from "My Space" and professional
networking concepts from "LinkedIn", then add in a portion of your favorite
consumer spa finding index along with management resources for the professional
and you have the idea”
We noticed that most every other spa centric web site caters either to enthusiasts or to professionals. There is just no place on the Internet where both groups can come together in a productive “neutral” environment. Until Now! SpaClique.com is the first spa portal welcoming both spa enthusiasts and spa professionals equally. Contrary to the idea of "Cliques" being exclusive to outsider, SpaClique.com is definitely a "big tent" community environment welcoming everyone with an interest in the spa lifestyle.
SpaClique.com is actually a site within a site. There is the enthusiast area open to everyone with content targeted primarily to the spa consumer. There is also a dedicated professional’s home page. The “Pro’s” area offers all of the same features as the enthusiast area except the content is focused on the professional. One resource exclusive to the professional is the Career Line, an area where employers and job seeker can find each other.
Take a spin on MySpace and Friendster and most adults find amusement in the concept and technology, but relatively few practical reasons to keep coming back for more. They've been a boon to a mostly younger set of users looking to meet new friends, find a date, or just generally kill some time online. With this in mind SpaClique's EVP of Business Development Brian Cunningham said, "we have worked very hard to make our web portal practical as well as entertaining. More than anything, we hope SpaClique.com becomes the place in the Spa community where members come to learn from each other, not just enthusiast-to-enthusiast or professional-to-professional but with quality communications in all directions that should help all community members have a better spa experience.
As the first social\professional networking web site supporting the worldwide spa community, SpaClique.com offers an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, business associates, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, and career referrals.
