2 HOUR LIVE WORKSHOP: How to attract premium float clients who pay more, stay longer, and experience the most incredible transformations
THURSDAY, 2:00 – 4:00 pm
Organized by Maximum Floats

For Float Center Owners/Managers and Soon-to-Be Float Center Owners/Managers:

In this 2 HOUR live workshop, you will discover exactly how to attract premium clients in your city who are comfortable paying more for their floats, excited about staying longer, and experience the best transformations.

We will be revealing each of the steps you need to take in order to shift from being a float center that mainly attracts clients by using discounts or depending on “I hope this works” marketing…to know exactly what you need to do to get the clients you’ve always dreamed of having (who aren’t concerned about price).

In the workshop we will uncover:
1. The 5-step process on growing your membership revenue FAST (this is the first time we are publically breaking this down).
2. How to create an offer that attracts the right clientele that will want to stay for a long time and will refer to lots of friends (the secret isn’t Groupon, Facebook, Instagram, or Google).
3. The BEST way to sell floatation therapy without needing to discount (hint…it’s not after a float session).

At the end of the workshop, you will have the tools and resources necessary to be able to go back to your float center and implement this model successfully.

However, if you want to take a MASSIVE shortcut. We will have an offer available at the end to accelerate your success.

WARNING: This event is limited to just 60 serious float center owners/managers (or soon to be owners/managers). There are going to be a lot of fun things going on during the weekend, but this will likely be the best use of your time all year if you are looking to grow. Reserve your spot now before someone else takes advantage of it and you miss your chance.


I’d like to tell you about our “Float Conference Live Workshop” 10X Guarantee…

If you feel like you didn’t discover how to make at LEAST an extra $10,000 this year, then let us know after the workshop and we’ll immediately refund the $10 you spent to come and we’ll write you a check of $100 for wasting your time with us. We believe that time is the most valuable resource on the planet, and we respect yours greatly.

    Water, you, and how beer saved humanity from extinction
    Saturday, 6:00 – ? pm
    Organized by Dr. Roy Vore and his microbes

    Water is essential for life. From the earliest days the availability of clean water has dictated the location and survival of civilization. Contaminated water can contain Cholera, Shigella and Typhoid Fever, each of which have cost millions of lives. But humans are a creative bunch. Specialized treatments have been developed to kill these incredibly serious diseases. The first treatment developed remains among the most popular – BEER! Yet beer is just one of the hundreds of foods, including wine, bread, cheese, yogurt, hard sausage, pickles, olives, sauerkraut, kimchi, soy sauce and vinegar (which is in more than you know!) in our diet that is made by fermentation. In other words, before refrigeration fermentation saved humanity from extinction and beer was one key staple. So, sit down, log on, grab a few fermented foods (cheese pizza and beer count as three – but if you have more than one kind of cheese you count each one separately and your score increases!) and get this light hearted romp through your pantry going and this pre-party rocking (or Rolling Rock-ing)!
