Have you always dreamed of opening your own spa business? Do you love treating clients to massages, facials and other relaxing treatments? Why not take the plunge and create your dream luxury business today!
If you’re familiar with the industry, you’ll know that nothing beats sending a client home after a rejuvenating pamper session at a spa. But, if you don’t have the space or money to buy a separate property or rent out a commercial unit, providing “at home” spa experiences could be the next best thing.
Offer the right services
Working from other people’s homes means you’ll have to offer the right services. You’re likely not to be able to carry around big pieces of equipment, meaning you’ll be limited to treatments such as manicures, pedicures, facials and waxing.
Don’t fret though as there are a number of ways that you can make these services seem much more luxury than they are. Why not offer more expensive oils and indulgent smells or even lengthened services for example.
Make sure you have the skills, training and qualifications
It’s important that if you’re offering professional services that you have the appropriate skills, training and qualifications behind you. This may mean sitting on a course or two to get up to speed with the latest trends and treatments, but it’s all worth it to be able to offer a wealth of luxury treatments to your clients.
Get the equipment you need
You’re likely to need a whole host of equipment with you to complete your services. Don’t waste your time with multiple different bags of bits that will only delay you and make you appear unprofessional. Look at investing in a high-quality tool bag that you can keep everything in.
You’ll know where everything is, be able to keep different pieces in their own individual compartments and it’ll be quick and easy to find what you need when you’re in the middle of treatments.
Use social media to attract new customers
Social media is one of the best and most cost effective ways of attracting new customers. Whether you manage it by yourself or hire a freelancer to cover this off, by using high quality imagery and snappy copy, potential clients will be able to get a clear idea of the services you offer and just how good they are.
You’ll also want to get testimonials too! These are a great way to build up your reputation and ensure existing and new customer keep coming back time and time again.
Get your prices nailed down
As you’re a luxury business, you’ll want to take a look at your competitors prices who service the same area. This will give you a good ideas as to not only what they charge, but also what treatments they offer and whether or not yours include more or less.
No matter what services you offer or who your clientele are, these tips will help you to build your luxury “at home” spa business in no time!
