Re: Specials For Your Salon

we bundle packages with our lotions! i do 1 wk with bottle purchase & 2 wks with purchase of $65.00 or more, i do these unlimited in lvl 1's so people can still pay to upgrade. also we feature a lotion of the week & clients get a month unlimited in a lvl 1. this is good to keep clients coming back! and good for our employees so each week they need to know everything about the product we're featuring!

Re: Specials For Your Salon

Last October at the Tan expo I attended a Marketing session that talked about giving away free minutes with every lotion purchase. The guy that spoke said it changed his lotion sales by tons. For example, if you sell a $30 bottle, you give them 30 free minutes, $50 - 50 free minutes. You are already making money on the lotion mark up & they will use up their minutes before the lotion & have to purchase another minute package. My customers really seem to like this because they think they are getting something free & it keeps them from buying off of Ebay.

Re: Specials For Your Salon

For "free" minutes, it would always be on the Level 1 beds. But they could pay, per session, to upgrade to better units (and should be encouraged to do so).

That said, if there is anyone still doing "minutes" you should do a search here on pricing and why minutes is the worst possible way to do your pricing.

That said, the same idea of the lotion special can be used. This has been discussed here as "Din's trick" (if you want to search). Basically, if they buy a $50 bottle of lotion, they get $50 to use on SINGLE SESSIONS.

NOT $50 toward a "package"

NOT $50 toward upgrades

But $50 toward single session walk-in pricing. So if your level 1 walk-in price was $7, they could get up to 7 free Level 1 sessions ($7 x 7 = $49). Obviously your GOAL would be to have them use that toward your more EXPENSIVE units - e.g. $35 for a walk-in high pressure or $25 toward a spray tan or $16 toward your biggest VHR bed, etc.
