Confused about where to begin?

How to get your spray tan business started

I am guessing you did a Google search for “How to start a spray tan business”

And you walked away overwhelmedconfused and unsure of who to trust and what to purchase.

Most of the web sites out there seem to be spray tan distributors and there is no clear path to figure out if what they are selling is the best spray tan solution or quality spray tan equipment.

How are you supposed to know who to work with?

You need a friend in the sunless tanning industry you can ask for advice and direction.

That is me.

How you can do it better

A shorter path to a profitable spray tan business

It’s safe to say there is a ton of spray tan business information locked inside my noggin.

During the past 18 years I have developed systems for evaluating whether a new piece of equipment comes on board, or if a new spray tan solution or retail product is the right fit for my business.

I am contacted weekly by sunless sales reps wanting me to use their supply house or try the latest “BEST” solution that just hit the market. Trying new products could take up my whole day if I let it.

So I developed a clear cut path for myself to work through all the clutter and find the sunless gems that are out there.

I am offering my experience to you to help shorten your path to a profitable spray tan business.

Since I am also busy running my own busy spray tan studio I thought it might be easier for both of us if I got all the info online for y’all in one convenient spot.

Bookmark this page as this is the spot where all the spray tan business knowhow lives here at SunSpray.

There is a ton here already to get you started and I will be adding to this little treasure trove of spray tan business tips as I have breaks in between tans.
