Benefits of Spray Tanning

Sunless tanning has quickly become one of the most popular sectors within the health and beauty industry. For indoor tanning salons and spas, it has provided a new income stream that includes some of the highest returns on investments in the industry. And spray tanning offers a new source of income for entrepreneurs seeking income, purpose, and work-life balance! We have seen many different types of businesses add sunless spray tanning to their list of services, including but not limited to: estheticians, cosmetologist, medical spas, salons, nail salons, mobile salons/spas, and more! From this expanding market we have seen a new business spin-off – mobile tanning.

Profitability of Spray Tanning

You may be wondering if the sunless tanning industry still has more growth potential after its recent surge.  Well, lets just say that it is growing fast enough to get the attention of CNN Money and some other major news outlets. This potential growth can only mean continued business and growth for sunless tanning technicians, salons, spa’s and mobile tanners everywhere. Realizing the growth potential for manufactures will only in turn mean continued growth for the end user; sunless tanning technicians. With a return on investment of well over 1,000%, this is an opportunity that you can’t miss!

On average, a spray tan session takes 20 minutes; if you plan on working only 4 hours a day, you will be able to accomplish 12 services back-to-back. *This does not include travel time if offering mobile services. For Example, Salons performing 12 services per day, 28 days per month, you will average 336 spray tans. Now, multiply that by the average spray tan service price of $35, and wow!!
