Mobile spray tans are a considerable portion of our industry! People love the convenience of the service coming to them and allowing them to stay in their homes. After operating a mobile business, you will soon build a clientele that will feel like family; however, every person begins as a new client, and meeting these people can often be intimidating. We expect those reaching out to us to have the best intentions, but this isn’t always the case, so it’s essential to prioritize your safety when you’re meeting strangers for the first time at an unknown location. To help mobile artists stay safe, Sjolie provides a few pointers to help you stay in tune with your surroundings and trust your gut!
Do you have any additional safety precautions that you take? Be sure to share them with your fellow spray tan artists and us! We build a stronger community by working together and keeping each other safe! If you have any questions or want to discuss any additional topics we can share, give us a call or email us!
Do your Research
Scope out your location
Ask your client to show you where to set up the appointment and discuss anything you need, like a better-suited room if the space is too small. This is a great opportunity to feel out the area and your client. And if you feel safe with the person and space, return to your car for the rest of your equipment, and show your new client what a fantastic spray tan service is! Remember always to trust your instincts – if your gut is telling you to go, take or leave what you have, come into the home with an exit to ``get your remaining things``. Send the client a text message when you're back in the car and let them know that something has changed and you need to leave immediately.
