RDS Real Estate’s Vision of a One-Stop, A-List Property Includes
No-Cost Marketing for Tenants
February 15 , 2011 – Dallas-Fort Worth, TX – A strong Internet presence is an essential marketing tool for well-established businesses. Start-up personal trainers looking to strike out on their own will discover that the Web is important when attracting and building a solid client base, but a highly visible, A-list retail location is also essential, says Ron Sturgeon, owner of RDS Real Estate’s Grapevine Mills Strip Center near Grapevine Mills Strip Mall, where Salon & Spa Galleria is helping to build the property into a one-stop wellness, health and beauty destination.
In recent years, several wineries have opened in Grapevine, a suburb of Fort Worth, Texas. The city is actively restoring and maintaining its historic downtown. Nearby Grapevine Lake, the proximity of Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and a median family income topping $95,000 led CNNMoney to list Grapevine as one of “America’s Best Places to Live.”
“We bought the Grapevine Mills Strip Center with the intention of attracting health-, wellness- and beauty-related businesses such as fitness salons, massage therapists, dieticians, and hair and nail salons to the property so that it becomes the premier destination for people who want to feel and look their best,” said Sturgeon.
There’s room for personal trainers to prosper, as well. Sturgeon’s plan calls for a fully equipped gym for personal trainers interested in using the prestigious spa’s address to assess clients, discuss fitness goals and diets, and lease private office space to run their business from the property.
Sturgeon is an expert Internet marketer. A recent two-day Groupon promotion netted 1,000 new clients for one of his other businesses. It’s no surprize that Sturgeon is a sought-after keynote speaker and small business marketing consultant.
RDS Real Estate is offering tenants free marketing workshops, an onsite concierge, a press release and personal space on the property’s website. The website, www.salonandspagalleria.com, offers online appointment booking and has been optimized for search engines. Flexible daily, weekly and monthly commercial space rental programs are available for start-ups.
Personal trainers are not just for celebrities and the elite few these days. As the average population focuses more on health and wellness, personal trainers are presented with new opportunities every day.
The time and effort personal trainers put into motivating and encouraging their clients’ wellness leads to relationships that can last a career. Sturgeon has provided fitness professionals the opportunity to build a loyal client base – and the tools to do it – for a manageable investment and none of the responsibilities of a large facility lease.
“I’ve been blessed to have learned how to get and keep clients for my businesses in Tarrant County for more than 30 years,” Sturgeon said. “Now I get a huge thrill out of sharing what I know with people who want to start or expand a business.”
With commercial properties located in Fort Worth, Haslet’s Blue Mound/ Alliance area, Arlington, Kennedale and Haltom City, RDS Real Estate, at http://rdsrealestate.us, is one of Tarrant County’s top agencies for retail, office and warehouse leasing.
