Devoted Creations’ Five-Star Diamond Program has been a huge success with salons throughout the world. Features include on-location sales and product training by DC’s team of experienced professionals including Lisa Parsons and Kandra Covert, a generous Welcome Kit and lucrative cash-back rebates.
The program creates a win-win scenario for all, as everyone – including salon guests – can enjoy great specials on many of the industry’s best selling products.
To highlight the program and its member salons, Devoted Creations and IST Magazine created an exciting new platform for them to share their stories and enjoy some well-deserved, national attention.
This month, the DC Five-Star Diamond Spotlight shines on SOLUS TANNING, headquartered in Jacksonville, FL. I interviewed Mat Wilson, Regional Manager, and asked him to share his thoughts on the tremendous success of SOLUS TANNING.
Mat: We opened the first salon in 2006 and now have eight locations in the Jacksonville area.
Mat: Yes, we are blessed with a great climate and beautiful beaches in Jacksonville. While we do get only a few cold weeks in the winter, it’s just like everywhere else in America – most people have to work during the day! That limits their ability to enjoy the sunshine. SOLUS provides them with a way to get a beautiful, golden tan – anytime. And, everyone expects people who live in Florida to be brown year-round!
Mat: We offer something for everyone, everywhere! With eight beautiful salons strategically located throughout the Jacksonville area, you’re never more than a few minutes away from a SOLUS salon. You can also sign up and become a SOLUS customer online anytime, via our easy-to-use website. We make it so simple to join and purchase a tanning package or membership. This process makes it easier for our professionally trained staff to spend more time getting to know the needs of every guest. Our high level of personal service truly separates us from everyone else.
Mat: We employ 40 people on a year-round basis and offer more than 100 UV-tanning systems and spray-tan booths. The Ergoline 1050 and VersaSpa Pro are among the most popular units with our guests.
Mat: Somewhere On A Beach, with its refreshing, tropical scent and skin-smoothing moisturizers is easily one of our best-sellers. Black Gem, Adorned, and Blonde Obsession are also extremely popular and so easy to sell. Your skin just drinks them up!
Mat: When it comes to hands-on training and support, Devoted Creations and their amazing team go above and beyond. Lisa and Kandra can instantly energize a crowd just by walking into the room!
Recently, they created a special sales incentive for our team. The top two sales reps who sold the most lotions within a 30-day period got free tickets to see The Chainsmokers perform from DC’s private suite at Tampa’s Amalie Arena. Our staff loved the incentive and our lotion sales went through the roof!
Mat: We are always looking for new, innovative ways to provide our guests with the best experience possible. We’re in the process of upgrading equipment in all existing facilities, and we’re always on the lookout for new locations in prime areas.
From everyone at IST Magazine and Devoted Creations, congratulations to Mat Wilson and Team SOLUS TANNING for a job well-done!
