;)

I would gladly pay $99/mo for access to the track on Friday nights and T&T Tuesdays/Thrusdays.

But then again, maybe I am weird???

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

eft is the worst move the tanning Industry has made. Why make $18.00-$19.99 on a month of tanning when you could get the full price of $49, $55, etc, and especially now when salons let them cancell anytime. Even if they keep it for 4 months, that's $80 and they probably tanned 3x per week for 4 months, so in the end you made $1.66 per tan.
And yes there's upgrades etc, but when it comes down to it, we could all be charging so much more and making so much more!

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

It is your opinion and it appears to be based on emotion and not facts.

"...they probably tanned 3x per week for 4 months, so in the end you made $1.66 per tan."

Obviously you do not offer EFT or you would have never came to that conclusion.

I am positive from my own experience and from the success of STC and PB; that EFTs do make a salon more money and profit.

Or you will have a person paying the eft and not coming in at all for 2 years. In the end you have to look at averages. I will tell you, we love eft!

WOW come on. First it is anonymous. Second I really hope you kidding me that you think that Heartland will open up a gym because you posted in a poll that you are up in tanning sales for one given year. GET REAL.

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

Robert, how about those of us in direct, or close by, competition with some big boys. I learned a long time ago to watch what I say here. I only have 6 beds, so I would think I wouldn't scare anyone, however I learned differently soon after posting on the forums. Just a thought. And, yes I know the polls themselves are set up to be anonymous. Just the fact that this thread has 900 views tells me lots of people are interested in the figures.

Re: HOW WAS 2012?

MBPA I understand your point. This is just a real basic poll that is anonymous so I am hoping to get some more votes so we have a better sampling.
