Incentives. Offering a special incentive for booking a future full-service treatment while still at the event, before the client leaves the spa, also increases the chance for attendees to become regular clients. Another incentive idea is to have a sampling program with purchase, so if a client purchases a cleanser and a moisturizer, they could enjoy a free sample mask or eye product. Partner with your brand account executives to see what support they can provide with gift-with-purchase incentives.
