Mobile Spray Tan Business Plan: Getting Started

Mobile Spray Tan Business Plan: Getting Started

For all those thinking about starting their own mobile spray tan business, we have some good news and some bad news. The good news is – you are in for a potentially extremely lucrative ride. The spray tanning industry is on the rise and if you play your cards right, research your local market thoroughly enough, and use these insights wisely, your business can grow by leaps and bounds rather quickly.

The bad news is – there are several technical issues you need to take care of first that may turn out to be very arduous.

One of those things is writing a mobile spray tan business plan.

Not that many people have the skills or the patience to tackle this type of a task. There are seemingly endless tricky aspects that you need to cover and, unfortunately, many aspiring spray tanning technicians give up on their dream too soon.

We Artesian Tan are here to try and change this awful trend.

But before we give you some pointers on how to assemble a potent mobile spray tan business plan, let’s talk about some positive prospects of this business – potential return on investment (ROI).

Potential Income

We scraped the market a little bit and realized that you can charge 40 bucks for one spray tanning session (if you work with quality equipment and solution, that is). Below, you can see what your potential ROI would be if you average on 3 or 6 clients per day, which is extremely doable.

Estimated ROI Table if you charge $40 a session:

  • 3 clients per day | possible monthly income: $2.400 | possible yearly income: $28.800
  • 6 clients per day | possible monthly income: $4.800 | possible yearly income: $57.600

No wonder more and more spray tanning technicians are opting for this particular pivot in their careers.

The potential in this market is huge, and the best part is that you can get amazing deals on quality spray tanning guns, as well as tanning solution. This means that you will soon start earning a lot of money and your profit margin will only go up, while the products and equipment you need for your job won’t get more expensive any time soon.

Truly a recipe for success.

Now, that you have the ballpark when it comes to your potential income, let’s see:

How To Write A Proper Mobile Spray Tan Business Plan

Although putting together a strong business plan may seem too tough to handle, we suggest you go over our instructions and see that this task is not as difficult as one might assume.
