5 Reasons Why Tanning Beds Can Help You Grow Your Business

Steve Foyster By Steve Foyster   •     •   2 minute read

Do you want to take your beauty salon to the next level and boost profits without having to follow long courses, learn new skills and offer new services?  Look at how you can make better use of the space you have. Will it accommodate one sunbed or two?  Here are five reasons why you should consider adding them to your services.

1. Sunbeds are popular every season

Tanning beds are popular all year round. Most consumers don’t have space nor money to buy their own sunbed for home use which is a great opportunity for beauty salons. They can offer a tanning experience close to home and earn an additional income.


2. Nobody tans just once

Tanning beds create loyal customers  There’s no gain using a tanning bed once, to build up and maintain a tan you have to use regularly.  Make sure you are the go-to choice for serial tanners by delivering a top-notch experience along with a loyalty program, subscription, or monthly tanning packages. This can help  build a steady stream of extra income.


3. Tanning guests can also be seduced to try your other services

Someone looking for just a tanning salon who finds you on Google might be pleasantly surprised when they visit and see you offer more services.  The next time they're looking for a beautician, you might be top of their mind. You could also give them an extra incentive to try your other services by offering a discount.

It also works the other way around: someone who's been coming for one of your beauty treatments and usually goes to another tanning salon might switch to yours - saves time & travel.  You increase the Customer Lifetime Value of your clientele. 


4. Gain additional revenue from selling products

For an even greater tanning experience you can offer additional products like lotions and creams.  These are a great way to make some extra money.

Products like tanning accelerators have a mark-up between 80-100%. By offering an appealing range from budget to luxury, you increase the chances of your guests buying additional products. The same goes for moisturizers. 

Educate yourself on which products are most popular and make your guests aware of their benefits. You could also consider giving free samples or a free product to anyone who buys a subscription to your tanning services.


You make more money out of existing space

Sure, you have to manage the cleaning, scheduling, informing clients and all that, but once your clients are in the tanning bed you make money from doing nothing. If you have one or two vacant rooms you could monetize them by adding sunbeds.
