Have you ever thought of becoming a professional spray tanner but don’t know where to start? Use the following as a guide to get you off to a quick start.
1.Increase Your Knowledge And Expertise In The Spray Tanning Industry.
If you are just a beginner obviously you are going to need to increase your knowledge. Here are just a few questions you will need to know. What is spray tanning? How does the skin change colour? How long does the tan last? What are the Golden Rules to make sure the tan lasts as long as possible? What solution should you use? What type of machine should I purchase? What are the risks associated with tanning and what is the best technique to use. In my eBook I answer all these questions plus many more.
2.Determine What Type Of Spray Tanning Business You Want To Operate.
Determine if you will operate as a mobile spray tanner, a home business or a fixed beauty salon. You can also consider operating as a home based business that offers mobile tanning. This ensures you are covering many client’s needs and wants. There may be clients that don’t drive or have children and can’t leave the house. There are some things you need to consider for these types of businesses.
3. Understand The Correct Business Licenses And Business Registrations You Will Need.
Your business will require different types of licenses and registrations to run successfully and legally. This may take time to register your business and obtain all the correct licenses. Once it is all set up you won’t have to think about it ever again. Take your time and don’t rush this process. You don’t need a contractor or beauty license to operate a spray tanning business in most countries (please check your countries qualifications). You will need to decide on a business name and register the name with your local Department of Fair Trading. You will need to register an Business Number with the taxation office.
4. Develop A Business Plan To Start Your Road To Success.
The most crucial part of any successful business is the planning stage and must not be overlooked. A business plan will be your road map to how you expect to succeed and how you will measure your success. Take time developing a business plan and write it down and refer back to it. This is not a race, it’s a real business that you would like to profit from so take your time to plan your business. This is where small business go wrong. They don’t take the time to develop a written business plan. The business plan is also very important if you need to borrow money from a bank, it shows the profitability of a business prior to committing to invest, it will address any issues of the business, it includes clear guidelines for the operation of the business, it shows clear direction of the business and how to maintain focus!
5. How To Develop Exceptional Customer Service Skills And Gain Credibility So You Stand Head And Shoulders Above Your Competitors.
In spray tanning people are your business. Without people you wouldn’t have a business. Customer service is essential to a successful business and should be taken very seriously. When customers are unhappy with your products or service, the person they speak to can make the difference between a happy customer, and an ex-customer. Word of mouth is one of the best forms of advertising as it is free. The spray tanning business relies heavily on word of mouth so developing exceptional customer service skills is paramount to your business!
6. Purchase The Right Equipment.
When starting your own spray tanning business it is so important to have the good quality equipment suitable to the type of business you want to operate. It is important to purchase your equipment off a legitimate supplier who offers a warranty or guarantee. Let’s investigate the different types of equipment you will need for your spray tanning business:
– Spray tan machine: There are a few different types of machines. Some are large which means you cannot easily use them for a mobile business. Other machines are light weight suitable for a mobile operator or home based business.
– Automatic Spray Machine: If you want to run a fixed spray tanning salon you will also need to consider whether you would offer automatic spray tanning booths for your clients.
