Ads reach no one. Why are the ad agencies getting rich?

You sure it's not the message of the ad vs. not reaching anyone?

I just started an ad in the local newspaper and I run it every other week, I get customers every other week, people are interested. Running an ad is pretty expensive, but once people know about your business, your business will grow by word of mouth. Then you can stop the ad for a while. Make your ad a coupon.

Leave your business cards at your local gyms, hair salons etc...

Send postcards out to your friends and neighbors and ask them to refer three paying clients and they get a tan free.

Ask your hair dresser (if you are close friends) if she would be willing to give some of her clients names and addresses to you so you can build your business. (My nail tech offered her addresses to me, she gave me that idea).

Give your local Travel Agency Gift Certificates for 10%,20%....off a full body tan for each person on a Cruise that is booked.

I wish you more business and lots of exposure.
Take Care

Another example of promoting UV free tanning before travelling?

No kidding? Wow, I didn't even think about it promoting UV free tanning before traveling. Cool! You know people eventually get a REAL tan on their vacation anyway. Airbrush tanning is just another alternative for color. Plus some people don't like feeling burned before and during their vacations.

I have been spraying for over 19 months. Over 2000 sprays but my days are still not totolaly full. I have to do side jobs. My family has been in the tanning business for over 20 years so have I. A college grad of the arts.I offer all different products to my customers. Some work better then others on different people. See you Florida.

Here are some ideas I have used to promote spray tanning ... I hope you find something you can use

1)Contact local newspaper fashion-trends editor, invite them for a demo.

2)Contact local drive time radio station and offer tanning services as a giveaway to the listeners.

3)Contact local women’s groups and ask to do a presentation at their monthly meeting.

4)Contact local High Schools – advertise in the school paper, offer student discounts during your slow times: Homecoming, Prom

5)Spray faces for free for a limited time to generate excitement.

6)Contact bridal shops and do a referral program

7)Obtain meeting with local Cancer support groups

Send notice and phone dermatologist offices, include plastic surgeons

9)Select a charity and offer a % of service’s to be donated for a selected period of time. (Ask for their donations list)

10)Notify Dance Schools of service and offer a package

11)Health Clubs and bodybuilders are a great source of referrals

12)Home parties are a great way to network for new clients (spray in tub for easy cleanup)

13)Research and contact local beauty pageants

14)Contact local business centers that offer employees wellness programs – offer special “membership”

15)Pass out ½ price coupons to bank tellers, retail workers or anyone that comes in contact with lots of people. They can be your best “free” advertisement.

16)Put an banner up inside and outside the salon that says airbrush tanning.

17)Talk to photographers about putting your brochures in their lobby, lots of people here are great candidates for tanning and may be looking for just a face spray.

18)BE TAN YOURSELF!
