Revenue & Profit for Salons and Spas
How they're different and why it's important!
This Revenue & Profit business module is not lengthy, but it is important.
The fact is that many salon and spa owners constantly chase high revenue (also often referred to as turnover or earnings) in their salons in the mistaken belief that high revenue will automatically also mean high profits.
Let me be 100% clear about this - it doesn’t!
When you realise that increasing your revenue is not a guarantee that you’ll increase your profits, you’ll better understand the real risks involved in:
1. trying to attract volume sales by pricing your services too low, and
2. running salon promotions based on discounted pricing.
Many business owners confuse revenue with profit but they are NOT the same thing.
This confusion negatively affects the way they market their services, and in turn, leads to loss-producing promotions and treatments.
If you're not clear about the difference between the two, then this short module is a must-have for you.
This module includes a PDF document outlining:
- What is Revenue?
- What is Profit?
- How to Maximise the Profit on a Service Sale
- Being Busy vs Being Profitable

As well as copywriting for this amazing industry (SalonSpaCopywriter), I’ve been a salon owner, business coach (SalonSavy), mentor and advisor to Australian and international salon & spa owners, as well as industry suppliers.
Before that, I did a stint as Freddo Frog, spent time writing computer code, ran a roadhouse, and worked in my mother’s dress shop!
But getting back to the important stuff…
I opened my first salon in Brisbane which was a raving success, and then worked with my husband for a few years in his business learning how to be a profitable uber-boss. I then bounced back into the beauty industry with a second, hugely successful salon on the beautiful Gold Coast.
Finally I sold up my salon and have since mentored hundreds of salon owners, before adding industry specific copywriting to my repertoire.
During this time, I’ve written and published my book 3 1/2 Secrets to Salon Success, which is all about helping salon owners focus on the important, profit-generating aspects of their business. I’ve also written bucket loads of business articles for industry magazines, over 30 coaching modules for salon and spa owners, and a few more e-books.
Now, I'm creating online courses to help salon and spa owners just like you to bypass the disasters and become a super-successful salonpreneur instead.
