BodyworkBiz closed its doors on December 31, 2014. However, all Retirement Package customers will be able to access all resources until the end of 2015. UPDATE: Access is now extended to December 31, 2016.
Although you can sneak into the back door to view the Retirement Package resources, the company is officially shut down. So none of the resources will be updated and support will be very limited. If you've forgotten your password to login, click the "Forgot your password?" link that you'll find just below the sign in box which you'll find on the left hand side of every page of the site.
If you didn't get the package, there are some great practice building resources kicking around that you can still get your hands on.
Fill Your Practice 101
This was one of the cornerstone courses at BodyworkBiz and you can still get it in book format through Amazon and CreateSpace.
Amazon hosts the Kindle version. You don't need a Kindle to read it. You can read it online on your computer or download the free Kindle app and read it on your tablet or phone. You can preview a few chapters for free on Amazon.

If you're old-school and love the feeling of paper under your hands, you can get a paperback copy on CreateSpace. It's rather large at 380 pages, so I'm responsible for the death of more than just a few trees. However, it's super easy to read and is divided up into 101 short chapters. You can use it as a reference and don't need to read it from cover to cover to benefit.

Note that some of the links to BodyworkBiz in the book are no longer active. Although it hasn't been updated since 2012, most of the material is still as relevant as it has ever been.
60 Clients in 60 Days
If there is one thing that has helped more massage therapists have successful businesses than anything else in the world, it's the 60 Clients in 60 Days strategy. You can hate sales and marketing and still be successful with this super effective, low stress marketing approach. The reason I love it is that anyone can do it. Not only will it bring a stream of clients through your door, but it will build your confidence and make you fall in love with massage again. This is a no-brainer, folks. If you haven't got this yet, get it now.

On Amazon, it's got an average customer rating of 4.7 out of 5. Hey! That's almost a point higher than most iPhones! Check out the reviews.
Marketing Ideas that Work
You can also still join the BodyworkBiz Group on Facebook. It's a very active community of over 6,000 members. Everyone is very helpful and supportive. Be warned: Discussions must be limited to business and marketing only. Post any ads or random images (no matter how cute) and you're out of there.
Please be sure to update the About page on your Facebook Profile so there is an indication that you are a massage practitioner and not a spammer. I review each join request personally to confirm that it's legit.
