Hot Summer Retail Ideas!

The rain has FINALLY stopped here in New York, and rumor has it we may hit 80 degrees today. Because of the beautiful weather, I am finally thinking about summer....and my favorite summer scent.

Coconut has to be one of the most incredible scents in the world and a huge favorite of mine! It just screams summer to me and so many other people. 

Do you rotate your retail products based on the season? I am a big seasonal scent lover - I won't use anything coconut in the winter, because it is a summer scent, and I won't use anything apple or cinnamon in the summer because that is for fall and winter. Weird, maybe, but those scents trigger feelings in me that are directly linked to the season.


Pure Spa Direct has the most delicious smelling Toasted Coconut & Lime Sugar Scrub that are ideal for summer spa retail:

Toasted Coconut & Lime With Sandalwood - Tri-Functional Sugar Scrub / 14 oz. Each - Case of 6. 
This tri-functional exfoliating sugar scrub is a revolutionary 3-in-1 formula that exfoliates, cleanses & moisturizes. Gentle enough to be used daily, this sugar-based scrub is infused with the finest organic jojoba oil, known for its remarkable ability to stimulate the production of your body’s own natural emollients. Ideal for use as a hand scrub, foot scrub or body scrub.

Size: Case of (6) 14 oz. Containers. Each individually boxed for retail sale, but can be used in professional treatments.

Why Employee Happiness is More Tempting Than Cinnabon

Recently in a press conference, Massage Envy announced plans to release a program to enhance the health and wellness of the professional massage therapists and estheticians they employ. With over 25,000 employees, this plan has the potential for major impact in the massage industry.

Reading this got me thinking...This is amazing news for anyone who works for the massage giant, but what about everyone else?

What are you doing to help protect your employees from injury and burnout? Are you offering them perks or benefits to instill their loyalty and comfort?

Your employees are your direct link to your clients, so keeping your staff happy and healthy will directly benefit your bottom line. According to some statistics (such as this infographic, found on www.switchandshift.com), companies with happy employees outperform their competition by 20%!

Keeping your employees happy is no easy task, but there are some simple changes you can make to increase happiness in your business! Could any of your equipment be upgraded to work better or make your employees' jobs simpler? Maybe it is time to put a hot towel cabi in each treatment room! Have you recently updated your decor or music selections? These small changes in the environment can have big payoffs, both for your employees and your clients! Do you offer refreshments for your employees? Even just easy access to water, tea, or coffee can help!

As business owners, we all think about how to make our clients happy. Focusing on making your employees happy, too, can provide huge payoffs for you!

What are some of your favorite, simple ways to boost employee happiness?
