The Beauty of Permanent Make Up & Microblading
From attracting new clients to boosting your profits, there are plenty of reasons to add permanent make up and microblading. Narrow niche professions cannot reach their full potential to reap maximum profits as the beauty market has become sutured and competitive. By adding new services you could see a revenue increase. Additional treatments would allow for you to become a 'one-stop shop' experience. Once you achieve 'the one stop' goal, you can truly expand. You can afford to hire a specialist. You can train friends and family to work in your business. You could open a second location.
It can be overwhelming to decide what service to invest in. You may want to add services that your competitors are already offering (like facials, waxing, massages and spray tanning). But let's be honest, those services probably don't give the best return. Those services aren't priced as high as permanent make up and microblading. You would have to service hundreds of clients just to make back your tuition cost. You would service it at a discounted price just to promote to new clients. Lets be honest, is that what you really want to do?
A better use of your time would be to charge the permanent make up and microblading price.
