Re: Minutes/points vs sessions and monthly packages

We have 3 different levels and 5 different beds. It is a lot to go over with new clients, and when talking to my new employee, they had selling minutes so much simpler. We are getting a lot of new clients lately, especially with the other business closing. Not complaining about it, but it is tiring going over my pricing sheet over and over. It takes time. My EFT's pay for my rent, so keeping that option. Always get people that will tan everyday...EVERY DAY..and tell me they want to be sure to get their moneys worth. I actually loose, when they come every day. They wouldn't do that with minutes/points. What are your thoughts?
There's a reason that the other salon closed (failed) and I would be pretty sure that selling minutes was a big part of that reason. There will always be some people who try to push a membership as far as they can, so instead of worrying that you may actually be losing money on those clients, focus on the averages vs sessions generated by your whole client group and price accordingly.
