New Belief, New Income Potential!

Spa Potential

Do you want to increase your income this year by 30% or more? You can by focusing on delivering a complete guest experience, “in the spa” and “at home!” The spa industry does a great job with performing treatments “in the spa,” but in most cases, misses the boat with retail opportunities and educating guests on how to take care of themselves at home BETWEEN TREATMENTS. I don’t know why, but most spa teams don’t recognize the importance of home care products in the wellness of their clients. You mention the words “products,” or “retail,” and everyone panics! You want me to sell? The answer is, “No, you don’t need to sell, you need to recommend!

Why is retail such a sore subject in the spa industry? Spa leaders try to maximize retail revenue to generate greater profits. Yet on the other hand, we have some team members who don’t give a hoot about making home care recommendations. It seems most spa teams only care about service income and don’t understand how much money they are losing by not making home care recommendations. As an industry, we are missing out on significant revenue that can be generated through retail.

As a spa professional, you have several revenue streams you can tap into. Here is an example of a typical compensation mix: In most cases, there are four potential revenue streams: Service. Retail, Gratuity, and Benefits. Currently, you might be tapping into 3 of the 4 revenue streams while completely missing most retail revenue opportunities. How much income are you missing from home care retail?

What can you do to maximize your income?

Practice the following 12 Retail Commandments and experience exponential growth!

1) I will adopt a new professional philosophy: It’s not about selling. It’s about making professional recommendations and helping my guests.

2) I will make it a habit to discover my guests’ concerns and help them.
3) I will fulfill my professional obligation by delivering a complete guest experience, both “in the spa” and by helping my guests learn what products they need to use “at home.”

4) I will educate my guests on how to take care of themselves between professional treatments.

5) I understand my guests buy and use products from somewhere. Therefore, they need to buy my quality products, instead of purchasing “over the counter” products.

6) I will use and believe in my products.

7) I will learn all about my products’ ingredients so I can recommend them with confidence.

8) I will use an intake form to help discover my guests’ needs and ensure their safety.

9) I will build trust and strengthen the relationship with my guests.

10) I will not prejudge my guests’ ability to afford my products.

11) I will set goals and strive to achieve them.

12) I will focus on recommending, not selling.

Renew your belief system and commit to practicing the 12 Commandments. There is a saying that states this simple fact, “If you help enough people get what they want, you will get what you want.” I would like to stress that our number one priority is to take care of our guests. When we do, the money will follow.

Practice the Don’t Sell, “Recommend!”  philosophy and SOAR![/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
