Private Label Liquids and Aroma Private label products reflect more about your property than anything else you might carry. Because of this, the thought and care that goes into the development process is paramount. At Ready Care™ we combine what we’ve learned during our 25 years in business, what statistics currently prove and what our sales tell us to generate a custom line that fits your every need. In addition, we listen to our merchandising experts and share knowledge based on client success rates to help generate sales.

Step One: Choose your Spa liquids.

Step 2: Choose your aroma.

Statistics show that skin care products account for 56% of overall spa retail and that hair care account for 19%. Our sales support this. While we recommend offering shampoo, conditioner and bath gel in your showers and lotion on your vanity, we know that lotion is the number one best seller and that shower gel is the number two. The one exception to this statistic is our natural line, it sells well in all four products. When making your decision on what products to carry, here are some interesting facts.

By providing a variety of fragrances, we invite your creative mind to wander. For instance, we call a product “citrus”; you might call it invigorating. We have a Green Tea Lemongrass fragrance and one of our clients from the south calls it the “sweet tea collection.” These aromas are another way to make a product your own. You can choose an aroma that suits you, and we can help define it. Our aromas address all terrains, concepts and themes. Have fun with this, for that is our intention.

Bottles and Print When you look at the print on a bottle, what can your Ready Care™ Representative teach you from experience that will increase sales?

Bottles: Each style of bottle has its gifts. Some bottles are available in multiple sizes, allowing you to create a complete product offering. Here are some things to consider:

Print: Communication is an important part of spa products, the two things we know that set us apart are ingredients and process. Let’s make sure your message to your clients is clear.

1.

Based on your design, are you choosing a bottle with a good surface area for printing?

1.

Make sure that the product names are easy to read.

2.

When you consider a look, think about the clients ability to evacuate the product; bottles that can’t be squeezed will require a pump.

2.

Consider the liquid color you are putting in the bottle as your “look” will change with products that have colors.

3.

Talk to your Ready Care™ Representative about how Your brand’s colors will look on your bottle, because colors change on amber, frosted and clear.

3.

Ease of use in the shower is important. A cap that unscrews may be esthetically pleasing but taking off a cap and finding a place to lay it may be difficult.

4. Think of the product you are putting in it, if the product is thin like shampoo or bath gel, it will pour out, whereas lotions and conditioners require a bottle that is pliable or a pump. 5.

If you are using a product with essential oils, we recommend a frosted or opaque bottle to protect the oils.

4. If there is something that is important to you, like a certain color popping on your logo, please point that out. 5.

Consider the look on the shelf, not just the individual bottles. Our marketing team can show you a total shelf look when you have made your bottle and design choices.

Spa at St. Julien A contemporary design in a variety of bottles with rich green hue product to accentuate the black.

Private Label - Logo, Theme or Emphasis? It may be as simple as putting your logo on the bottle to properly represent your company. Please make sure to send us a high-resolution bitmap, or vector logo. Here are some other things to consider. Bottles: Each style of bottle has its gifts. Some bottles are available in multiple sizes, allowing you to create a complete product offering. Here are some things to consider: 1.

Theme: Does your spa or hotel have a theme or concept: Let your Ready Care™ Representative know.

2.

Is there a message or a tag line that could help with the design?

3.

Are there esthetics at your hotel or spa that would add something to the design, like art, tile or glass etching?

4. Are you known for something that is not represented in your logo, something that would strengthen your brand? 5.

15

The more information you can provide, the better. Our goal is a product line with substance, a piece of you that they can take home and incite their beautiful memories from.

The Umstead Spa Pearl bottles with gold pumps, a squat bottle with a gold straight cap and a subtle, beige background to enhance their logo. This line is captivating and it drives home Umstead’s message.

Private Label - Logo, Theme or Emphasis? Here are two examples where a client either expanded their concept or created a focus concept.

Fairmont Sonoma A photographer captured the essence of calm when he took a photograph of a beautiful woman wading in the pool at the Sonoma Mission Inn. It’s a picture that need not define itself with words. Is there something about your spa that would add this much to your private label look?

My Spa The concept of My Spa is to encourage their guests to take ownership of the benefits of the products. So by simply expanding those thoughts, this client is creating a signature line that drives their concept.

Private Label - How to Sell It may be as simple as putting your logo on the bottle to properly represent your company. Please make sure to send us a high-resolution bitmap, or vector logo. Here are some other things to consider.

How to Sell

1.

In-room

The product line is complete but honestly, the work has just started. Now that you have spent all this time developing this line to represent your property, how do you sell it? The good news is, initially, look no further than your own hotel or spa.

2.

Retail Stores

3.

In-room Retail

5.

Group Sales

Think of your property as your best marketing opportunity, Here is a checklist of opportunities.

6.

Treatment of the Month Club

7.

Selling Your Brand to Local Retailers

4. Room Service Menu

1. In-room:

Everyone will tell you that if you put your branded line in your rooms, it will drive retail sales and this is true, but it’s so much more.

A. Your aroma should create an atmosphere. By using your signature aroma in your rooms, you are further driving that relaxation, invigoration or whatever your focus is.

B. Specifically using your spa line in

your rooms cross promotes your spa. Put home spa protocol on the back of the bottles to educate your clients on proper use, or mention spa treatments that include the products.

17

C. Design: Because you are creating the

design, your brand can completely enhance your bathrooms and add to the decor.

D. And again...when they try it and it

makes a positive impact, they will buy it, it’s that simple.

(800) 477-4283 • info@readycare.com • www.readycare.com


Private Label - How to Sell 2. Retail Stores:

Every store at your property that sells any type of spa products or souvenirs should carry your line because it’s clearly both. Ask your Ready Care™ Representative to put together a promo sheet to your leased stores so that you can sell to them.

3. In-room Retail: On average, people spend 5 hours each day in their hotel room awake. If you told a retail manager that you could get someone to look at their shelves in a store for 5 hours, they would hug you! So, let’s not waste those five hours on just candy bars and nuts, let’s show them your brand, make them beautiful cards explaining the line and the benefits, and give them an opportunity to treat themselves in the room. Or... bring home a treat to a loved one.

Private Label - How to Sell 4. Room Service Menu:

On your in-room dining menu, you can include an option to receive a bath gel, a sugar scrub, a body butter and a warm robe with a home treatment card. This not only sells product for you but it teaches your client how to use and depend on your line.

5. Group Sales: The fist thing that weddings, business conferences, parties and fund-raisers do is book a location. After the location, they start to create a list of all the other things they need to do. One of the things on the list for all will be a giveaway. By creating a nice digital booklet for your group sales department, you make the decision easy and strengthen the memory of your location. So we encourage you to create a packet that would allow for both themed suggestions and also price suggestions.

It made her smile when she thought of people enjoying the candles in their homes. The guest gift was perfect!

The event was a hit and the gift had...very warm responses.

Private Label - How to Sell 6. Treatment Of The Month Club (TOM Club) Develop an alternative to gift certificates with a treatment of the month club. This club could register Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christmas and Valentine’s day. It could be monthly, quarterly or whenever they want. It could be for treatments, for retail or for both. The treatment of the month club could simply be a monthly mailer, paid for in advance, that featured a product with a home treatment card explaining how to use it and could feature a discount if they come in to the spa. It could also be an actual treatment each month, paid in advance and then call to schedule during their allotted time frame. By booking for the year, they would receive a substantial discount.

Imagine the excitement of receiving this card!

7. Selling Your Brand To Local Retail When your property has an allure in the community, your products have a built-in audience. Work with local boutiques to sell your products as a souvenir, but a souvenir with an aroma. This will work to your advantage in selling products to locals and to help establish an identity. Also, provide samples to your local tourism council, create a local relationship to help drive traffic to your spa and increase retail sales.

Just because they did not stay with you, does not mean they don’t want to take home a part of you!

Private Label - Brand Marketing Brand Marketing This is your brand and if you invest in it, it will pay off. Here are some quick fun thoughts to get you inspired. •

Have a press day twice a year. Once for local media and once for national. If you can’t get national, do a print day and then a T.V and radio day. Provide treatments, give them a gift bag and some lunch. They are going to talk about you!

Invite local woman’s groups for tea and offer hand treatments and a free gift bag with your spa menu. Give spa tours.

Work with your Food and Beverage department on cross selling. For instance: When they have groups in, offer a reasonable giveaway to purchase with a custom card.

Work with your front desk manager to have your lotions on the counter when guests check in, let them experience the product.

Displays: When available create product displays around your property, if you have locations already, that’s great. If you don’t, you can purchase reasonably priced free standing displays with an acrylic dome to show off your brand and drive them to the spa.

Gifts: When you launch your brand, create a nice gift for your co-workers who are in a position to benefit from your products. Send them a gift with a little marketing piece that shows all the combinations of your products. Make it easy for them and tell them if they provide you with amounts they need and the dates, you will even do a custom card for them! Make it easy to choose your brand for their needs....
