Would you Make a Great Product Rep?

One of my favorite things about the aesthetic industry is how many avenues and opportunities aestheticians can choose to take as they forge their career paths. 

You can go into a highly-specialized niche, branch out on your own as a solo aesthetician, or you can go the route of being a product rep like my friend Hannah did!  

Of course, those are just a few paths one can go down, but becoming a product rep is one that I think many aestheticians give thought to at one point or another, so I want to dive in deeper with Hannah, who is the Senior Strategic Territory Business Manager for iS Clinical, about what it truly takes to be successful in a product rep position. 

In this week’s dose of inspiration, education, and encouragement, Hannah shares her journey from working in a med spa to working in the field as a product rep to now being a senior territory manager. 

We talk about the misconceptions of the day-to-day tasks, transitioning from a medical environment to being in the field, the skills it takes to be successful as a product rep, and more. If you’ve ever been curious about what being a product rep entails, you’re going to love the insights and real-talk that Hannah provides. 

As you can see, there’s tremendous opportunity in filling a product rep position, but it’s certainly not something every aesthetician will find as their calling. 

Thank you again to Hannah for sharing her valuable tips and insights with us, and if you have thoughts or questions on being a product rep that you’d like to share, be sure to start a conversation in the Aestheticians Connect Facebook group

Should You Develop Your Own Product Line? - A Q&A With Gregory Dylan

As you grow your solo aesthetician business and build your clientele as a spa owner, you might start to look for new lines of revenue and ways to leverage your time. 

After all, if you want to stay solo or with a small team, there are only so many hours in the day. With a full book, you might quickly realize that you need an additional way to bring in income without trading dollars for hours and being in the treatment room to know your business is growing. 

Today, Gregory Dylan joins me again (you might remember the Q&A we did about how he grew his following and built his business through his YouTube channel) to talk all about developing your own product line versus going with a private label to sell in your spas.  

A little background on Gregory: he’s the founder of Gregory Dylan Beauty, a full-service skincare studio in West Hollywood and is also the star of his YouTube channel, Boy Meets Beauty, where he shares his knowledge and expertise with his devoted and growing following. On top of all that, he's also been working for last few years create and develop his own product line. 

In this Q&A we talk about his experience with the process, the pros and cons, what it’s like working with a lab to create your products, as well as his advice and tips for solo aestheticians and spa owners who might be considering going this route. 

Thank you so much to Gregory for joining me again for this dose of inspiration, education, and encouragement, I always love having the chance to talk with and learn from you!

Until next week, keep making the world a more beautiful place inside and out.
