WHAT IS GLOBAL SPA RESOURCES?

Global Spa Resources, (abbreviated to GSR), is the premier online platform for the Spa & Wellness industry aimed at anyone working in the industry or who is considering starting a business in the industry where they can connect with vendors & service suppliers from around the globe.

 

HOW CAN GLOBAL SPA RESOURCES HELP ME?

In order to answer that question we invite you to review the below options depending on which statement best describes your situation:

 

I am a vendor or service provider and I service businesses in the Spa & Wellness Industry:

GSR can best support you if you sign up for our Vendor Listing or Premier Partner Plan.  This will allow you to list your business & services on our platform, which will be visible to all other users & visitors.  Our global marketing initiatives will help put your business out to a wider audience and can help you connect with potential clients in new territories.  

 

Additionally, Vendor Listing Plans have access to our ‘Active Projects’ and you’ll be able to search and submit proposals for relevant projects, which could potentially secure new business for you.  For more information on this, please read our section on WHAT ARE ACTIVE PROJECTS?

 

I am a Spa, Salon, Fitness or Wellness Manager / Director / Owner:

The main way GSR can support your business is to make it easier than ever for you to find and connect with service vendors and industry experts from all around the globe.  We know first hand how much time this can take up!

 

You may be looking for a new product line or equipment to enhance your current offering.  You may be in charge of a pre-opening and have several tasks to put out to tender (Recruitment, Procurement, Consultancy etc.).  

 

WHAT KIND OF MEMBERSHIPS DO YOU HAVE?

Site Members

Anyone can become a site member, it is completely free and only requires the user to complete the sign up form by clicking on the member sign in bar on any page and selecting to log in / sign up.  A site membership is required for anyone wishing to email or communicate with another site member via our chat / mailing feature.  Your profile must be set to Public.

 

Professional Subscription Plans

These are required in order to utilise certain paid features of our platform including listing your business or accessing our recruitment database.  These memberships are open to anyone who is already a site member and who pays the required fees for access.

 

 

I’M INTERESTED IN A BUSINESS ON YOUR SITE, HOW DO I CONNECT WITH THEM?

To connect directly, click the ‘MORE’ button on the main directory page and you can see snapshot details about the business including how to ‘WORK WITH US’ at the bottom of the page.  Here you will see the members’ name, which you can type into the ‘chat’ / ‘message’ box which is displayed as a black speech bubble on your screen.  

 

Another way to connect with them is to click the link to their direct website and follow their own ‘contact us’ instructions.

WHY CAN’T I SEE A ‘CHAT’ OR ‘MESSAGE’ BUBBLE ON YOUR SITE?

This feature is only visible to site members who have made their profile public and are logged in.  If you cannot see it, please make sure you join us as a site member, that you are logged in and that your profile is public. 

 

 

WHY IS THE NAME OF THE PERSON I AM SEARCHING FOR NOT SHOWING UP IN THE CHAT / MESSAGE BOX?

You can only contact members whose profile has been made ‘public’.  If you cannot find the member then there is a change they have not made their profile public.  Please send a message to Susan Yardley, and let her know whom you are trying to contact so she can inform them and remind them to make their profile public.  

 

WHY AM I NOT SEEING ANY NAMES IN THE CHAT / MESSAGE BOX?

The most likely cause of this is that your site members profile is not set to ‘public’.  You can check this by clicking ‘My Account’ in the members log in bar and visiting your ‘Profile’ page from the members menu.  If your site is Private you will see a button in your header section marked ‘Make Public’.  If you do not see this and you want to check that your profile is public, click on the 3 small dots next to the ‘Edit’ button and you will see an option that states ‘Make Profile Private’.  If you see this, your profile is public.
