Did you know that of all the cosmetic procedures in the world, teeth whitening comes out on top? It has become a $14 billion industry and is gaining popularity even more. This means people are willing to invest in time and money in improving their looks starting with their smiles and that includes their teeth.
Teeth whitening is probably one of the fastest and most affordable ways for someone to improve one’s appearance in the shortest amount of time. This explains why more and more people, at any age, want to get on this bandwagon and start looking good! This also opens up a wonderful chance for business-minded people to get a piece of this dental pie.
How to begin in the teeth whitening business
Do your research! Not all businesses prosper simply because the budding entrepreneur did not take time and do research on the products and services they provide. All they cared about is starting it up and wait for the money to come in.
Get a franchise or distribute an existing brand
Some brands and products are already established and are known in Australia. One way to start a teeth whitening business is get a franchise of an existing business or become an official distributor of a brand or be trained by the company to be a certified teeth whitening specialist. And they will provide you with all products, materials, training, and equipment that are approved by the Australian Dental Association. The nice thing about a franchise is that they will give you regular support in your business. Your gain is their gain, too.
Most programs do not take long and you get certified after taking an exam of their training courses. Most of these courses cover everything that you would need to be on your own with your franchise. Some of the topics include:
- What is cosmetic teeth whitening
- Understanding teeth
- Treating sensitive teeth
- Identifying the ideal client
- Procedures and materials
- Post-whitening care
- Building your clientele and referral system
- Seminars on new equipment and procedures
- And many more…
Getting into a business
You can buy into an existing successful teeth whitening business to get you started. However, once you’re in, you’re mostly on your own. Unlike franchising, it isn’t as structured when you buy into the business. You are like getting into an already existing market with a proven business system. There are no franchise fees. Your next move is how to set up your new teeth whitening business and how to market your store. You could find a small store for rent or a kiosk in a mall or at your home and do the marketing straight from your small home office.
Buy an existing one
The third and easiest way is to buy an existing teeth whitening business that’s for sale for one reason or another. This is the easiest because all you need to do is put up the money being asked and you’re all set. You will get the training and the whole business operation before or after sales.
The possibilities to earn and help people with their teeth whitening needs are endless. Think about it and start researching today!
