Tips--Tricks

November 4th, 2011 by Adore

You love giving spray tans; all of your friends compliment your good work and have started referring others to you for sprays. It’s obvious you have a gift for this, but can you make a profit from spray tanning? Can you start your own spray tan business? Why not? There is an increasing market for the sunless spray tan, with more and more people turning away from the danger of the sun’s UV rays.  With this in mind, it can be a legitimate way to make a living.  There are however a few things to know before investing.

If you are seriously considering opening a tanning business, then you need to set goals. How much is the initial investment? What would the advertising costs be?  Will you do it out of your home or rent a place? What is the competition like in your area? You need to answer these kinds of questions in order to decide whether it is viable for you to start your business. Specific questions to the spray tan business include whether you would provide spray tans only, or also sun beds. The more equipment required, the more expensive the endeavour up front.

If you’ve decided to go ahead with your business, it’s time to put the plan into action. Invest in the latest spray tan technology including booths, spray guns, solutions, and lotions. You may also wish to invest in products that you can sell to clients with a margin of profit. And no matter how small your spray tan business may seem, you need to hire staff. Do not underestimate the work load involved and be tempted to try and do it all yourself! Make any employees that you hire are well trained and people-friendly as high customer service is crucial in any business.

All that’s left is to help your spray tan business thrive. The best kind of advertising is free advertising and luckily for you, word of mouth is the strongest way to get more clients. Treat your regular clients extremely well – pamper them, tell them tricks and tips, and make them feel comfortable. This will create positive experiences for them which will turn them into regular clients and help spread the word about your amazing business.
