MediSpa Conference 2014
Join keynote speaker Susanne Warfield, 9 a.m.-3 p.m., Sept. 16, at The Institute of Beauty and Wellness' annual MediSpa Conference at the OC Hanson Auditorium in Milwakee inside the Aveda Building. Susanne will present on on the business, ethics and liability of the medispa industry.

Medical spas, also known as mediSpas, blend the best of both worlds — a spa experience with the procedures and expertise found at a doctor's office.

MediSpa's use more aggressive treatments and are a great way to get treatment for acne, aging skin, hair removal and more.

This year's impressive panel boasts all of the above — skin care expertise and a touch of spa added to every treatment. The conference will also touch on upcoming medusa trends like skin rejuvenation, injectables, industry trends, skin rejuvenation and body contouring.

The importance of momentum in marketing
By Randall Craig
What is the difference between a successful marketing campaign and an unsuccessful one? ROI is certainly the standard answer, but it is also completely insufficient. A single marketing campaign is not much different than a car going uphill, battling gravity with a driver giving a single pump of the gas pedal. Let off the gas, and it will eventually slow down, stop and then start rolling downhill. Likewise, the inertia of the market — competitive noise, client disinterest and short-term memories — can only be overcome with more than a single pump of marketing energy.
