Sessions versus Minutes or points

I bought a salon in the Chicagoland area that has been in business for 10 years. The salon has always sold tanning sessions in numbers or packages of 1, 3, 5, 10 and 20 sessions.

I am interested finding out what the pro's and con's are of possibly making the switch to selling tans on a minute or point basis versus a session basis. Is one more cost productive then the other, more popular?

How do you determine the cost basis for each and is there a good formula to figure your cost per minute for the operation of each type of UV bed?

I would appreciate any information. Thanks in advance.

Re: Sessions versus Minutes or points

Never, ever, ever, ever switch to MINUTES.

Points are fine. Totally different animals.

Most who make the switch find they make more selling points than they did selling sessions. It depends if when you sell sessions you "encourage" them to sit at one level or you still suggest they upgrade and mix it up. Ditto with points - you need to encourage and "sell" them on using the bigger/better beds.

Re: Sessions versus Minutes or points

Points will be confusing to clients who may be used to sessions. Chase them away even.
