August is here and we have rolled into the month in the most fab tan van, owned by our Therapist of the Month, Katie Collarbone. Here’s her interview.
Congratulations Katie – how does it feel to be our August Therapist of The Month?
I’m over the moon to be therapist of the month it means so much to me and it’s a great recognition for me with the tan van as it’s only been going for 3 months.
Tell us a little bit about your background, your business and your relationship with Sienna X so far…
I have been doing sienna spray tans for over 5 years, I trained with Sienna and have completed level 1 and 2. I’ve always enjoyed tanning and worked from my beauty room at home then decided to start the tan van. I thought that the best place to have your tan is at home but sometimes people may not always have the right space or place for the pop up tent or have the perfect place like a kitchen with hard floor but no door on the kitchen, so this way I bring the tan in a van to them and its all in one place and enclosed in a private cubicle. I keeps all the spay in the van they then don’t have to walk through a high street bra less after their tan 🙂
What have you done to build up your client loyalty over the years?
Over the years I’ve been tanning with Sienna I have offered my clients loyalty discounts after 5 or 10 tans, they also love the minis to top up their tan and feel they are getting something to take home after.
What has been your most successful marketing campaign/promotion to date?
My most successful was when I launched the tan van I put a video on my Facebook page and promoted it and it had over 4000 views! I just couldn’t imagine all the households discussing it and looking at the Facebook page. Its a great way to advertise and use their adverts for promoting in an area which you can select your market.
How much of a difference do you think using social media makes to your business? How do you find time to keep on top of social?
Facebook is definitely a favourite of mine to promote and advertise to those who like your page. I try and post 3-4 times a week on social media, I use Instagram, Facebook and Twitter I find they’re all great in their own ways for reaching your audience.
What has been the most memorable moment within your career so far?
My most memorable moment in my career is when my niece saw my van, her name is actually Sienna and as a 3 year old she believes I have written her name on my van especially for her 🙂
Finally – if you were on a desert island and you could only take 1 Sienna X product, which one would it be and why?
Sienna X Radiance Body Balm as we all know moisturising is key to keeping a good tan real or fake.
