How long have you been in business? What inspired you to develop this brand? What sets your company apart of the competitors in your category Do you offer different brands or classifications of products?
For almost two decades, Vie Collection has been a leader in advanced anti-aging skin care solutions. The first Vie Collection product was developed in 1999 as a premiere product within the Phytomer line before becoming an entire skin care brand. The scientific team that developed Vie Collection used their extensive experience, world-class laboratory and leading esthetic ingredients to form the brand known today as Vie Collection. Vie Collection is not limited to just one star ingredient. The laboratory selects and combines the most powerful benchmark ingredients used in esthetic medicine. Using optimal concentrations, they are combined with molecules at the forefront of anti-aging research and are complements to the top esthetic treatments including: BOTOX® injections, hyaluronic acid injections, peels, microdermabrasion, mesotherapy and laser/LED treatments.

What helpful hints or disciplines have you found usually always lead to a retail sale of your product at the end of a service?
Advanced, thorough training of Vie Collection’s brand, products and treatments is key. If professionals understand the brand, they can then educate their clients, making selling natural and easy. Selling through education. We have a handbook we use in retail trainings to help walk service providers through keys to successful selling. It is also a good practice to have a standard and always leave 3-4 products out to recommend to the guest (with order of priority in case they do have a budget). Often it’s the mindset people have about “selling” that obstructs their success; negative perceptions about “salespeople”. Sometimes the service provider needs to get out of their own way and not approach sales as a negative. The client can feel if they are uncomfortable or insecure in recommending or promoting products. If it comes across as the service provider seeming apologetic or like the product isn’t worth it, likely the client will pick up on that. Don’t judge the pocket book of your client. Offer what you have and the client can make the choice of what they will spend.
