Learn good marketing skills
Marketing is a broad term and commonly confused with advertising. Though they go hand in hand, you need to be selective and smart in the approach you will use to get more people to know about your salon and choose your services. With the beauty industry, social media plays a very crucial role as a marketing platform. Now, there is also the power of influencers of which you might invite to your salon, maybe even offer a free service, and in return, have them broadcast your salon.
Your best bet would be providing content that will always captivate and engage potential clients, no matter where they are. Invest in a good camera and lenses, or hire one if necessary and always share your content to different pages, channels and platforms.
Promotions and giveaways
Understanding how your salon relates to its client’s needs is a great way to ensure the success of your salon. Customizing promotions and special offers that might be catered around a specific theme, seasonal change or trends is a great way to attract clients to your salon. Giveaways like free shampoo sachets, some herbs or oils always work perfectly to attract clients. Once these clients are at your salon, it is up to you to use your personality and great skills to turn them into long term clients. Here again, you could use the power of marketing to make people aware of your offers and promotions which will, in return, keep the numbers up.
