The first step in selling SunTan Studio is getting it listed on our website BuyTanningSalons.com Tanning salons receive offers when listed on the site, however additional marketing is always recommended. You can get listed normally for a $2,749 one-time upload fee and $249 recurring monthly listing fee, but currently we are running a discount where your salon can be listed for $2,000 OFF the upload fee = a $749 one-time upload fee plus a reduced $149 monthly recurring listing fee for the life of your month to month listing. We suggest accepting offers instead of making a set asking price. I have seen buyers that are planning on opening a new store pay "build out costs" or a portion thereof and buy the competition. As you know new franchises are averaging up to 450k to 500K to build. We will create a professional Ad to sell your salon and will give you a detailed evaluation report showing the duplication cost of your salon and the value of the good will in a ala carte scenario. The "good will" is the value of your contact list of tanning salon clients. This list combined with the value of your build out and existing cash flow reflect the highest values for your tanning salon with the current market condition.
For Potential Buyers in your marketing area I recommend an aggressive marketing plan which involves mailing our custom postcards showcasing your salon for sale with its listing info. On BuyTanningSalon.com and automated calls to potential buyers in your marketing area that have historically been buyers of tanning salons (we have over 1500 on file in your Marketing area).
I have 2 optional aggressive marketing plans customized for you below with easy weekly payments for a 4 week marketing blitz that I would recommend doing before your salons busy season ends. The marketing programs below are available to you, even if you do not use our brokerage services which are explain below. By listing your salon for sale before busy season is over it will motivate buyers to complete the sale prior to busy season being over so they can get a quicker return on their purchase price of your salon.
Aggressive Marketing Plans
1,000 local contacts mailed - 4 weekly payments of $529 + 2,000 phone calls = $599 per week, for 4 weeks
1,500 local and national mailed - 4 weekly payments of $699 + 5,000 phone calls = $799 per week for 4 weeks
4 week marketing blitz with an average as low as 51 cents per contact with local contacts called 1 time and receiving a postcard and national contacts called 2 times (select national contacts will receive postcards as well). The reason I threw in national contacts of ours on the1500 contact option is that your store is primed for an out of state salon owner to buy and expand into your area.
We can help you with a total 6,500 contact attempts to promote the sale of your tanning salon to about 3,000 potential local and national buyers in your marketing areas with each pre identified lead receiving 2 marketing contact attempts at a cost as low as 51 cents per contact attempt.
Ala carte marketing service options:
. Automated calls ala carte 93 cents each, with a 350 contact minimum
. Post cards designed and mailed to pre-qualified leads $3.75 per contact with a 250 contact minimum.
. Post cards will be mailed after 15 days in 4 week advertising campaign and include design and postage.
. If you elect phone calls via automated messages, these will take place about every ten days. The first being on day 3 and the last on the 28th day.
. Post cards are often saved and almost always are read by a decision maker of one of our potential pre identified buyers. Postcards combined with automated calls are very effective.
I can also put together a custom marketing campaign to sell your salon based on your budget and what mixture of postcards and phone calls that you want in your campaign that will almost always be less than the ala carte pricing listed above.
