Setting up an Aesthetics Business – Pitfalls to Avoid

aesthetics business startupSetting up any new business is very exciting, but not without risk. Aesthetics is no exception. While there are many appealing aspects to starting a new business in non-surgical treatments (profit, low entry costs, freedom to manage your own time), you should also be aware of the risks.

Here are 3 common errors that put startup businesses at unnecessary risk:

1. Focus:

Trying to be too many things to too many people can backfire, leaving you overstretched and clients confused. Focus on a core service and treatment offering, especially in the early days, to keep your business model simple and easy to manage. Above all, focus on leaving clients happy with their results.

2. Cashflow:

Rising revenues doesn’t necessarily make for a successful business. Net profit is key, which is the sum left after all costs. Whether you’re pricing or buying products, be sure that you’ve built in enough margin to pay for everything.

3. Spending unwisely:

It’s best to start small and simple, not over-invest in unnecessary equipment and support. A lot of start-up businesses want everything to be ‘just so’ before they launch and spend valuable start-up funds on things that aren’t entirely necessary e.g. offices, stationery. Think what you can get away with from day one and build your offering as the business grows.
