Having the right spray tan training doesn’t mean just learning a great spray tan technique. True spray tan education means learning how a spray tan reacts and how to help a client achieve the best results before and after your service, why one technique is better than another, and what you can do to increase your business’s profit margin and client base.
Before signing up, always make sure to talk to someone about what is offered at the training class.
You’ll always want to speak with someone who can describe the training, and what you will receive for your class ticket. You’ll also want to look at their website and the information they provide. How helpful is the information they offer for free on their site? Does the site just seem like a sales pitch to get you to take the training, or does it actually provide useful information? Always make sure to read reviews on your training company before committing to the training too. If there are a lot of mixed or negative reviews then it’s probably best to stay away from that certification class.
Here are a few great questions you can ask about the spray tan training program:
- Do they offer continuing support?
- Do they only offer one type of training (only online, or only on-site), or can you find a training program that fits your needs?
- Is the price of their spray tan training within your budget?
- Is the price of the training for the entire spray tan certification program, or do you have to purchase additional “upgrades” to get the whole experience?
- What else do you receive, if anything, by attending the certification program?
- Is there a hands-on portion of the training, with live models to practice on?
What’s better: a spray tanner offering a training class, or to get training through a spray tan company?
Spray Tan training comes in all shapes and sizes and, above all else, it’s important to find the type that best fits your lifestyle. Many spray tanners do offer training classes, but it’s important to remember that what worked for one salon or mobile business might not work for you and your spray tan business. That’s one of the many benefits of working with a spray tan company: they will have trained thousands of clients from all walks of life, and will have gathered a comprehensive portfolio of pitfalls and successes that a smaller training program simply will not know about.
Because a large spray tan company has worked with spas, salons, and mobile spray tan businesses of every size, they will be far more able to help you grow your own business. Additionally, a large spray tan company will be able to provide the continual support after the training that a salon owner who offers training will not be able to: they have their own business to run and will be too busy to help you out when you need it most, whereas a large spray tan company’s sole job is to help make you as successful as possible: when you grow, they grow!
Most large spray tan company’s will also be able to offer better prices on packages and machines through financing, and the huge deals they get by ordering hundreds (or thousands!) of machines at a single time, which is something a salon trainer would not be able to help you with. Even better, if the spray tan company is also a spray tan solution manufacturer then you will be re-ordering your spray tan solutions at the best prices available rather than going through a distributor!
In the end, the choice is yours: just make sure it’s the right one for you and your business!
