If you’re reading this post, chances are that you’re an entrepreneur wanting to launch a successful beauty business. If this happens to be the case, congratulations! This is a big step forward and we’re sure it will bring amazing results to both your personal and work life.

We all know that any new project can be a bit difficult to get off the ground, especially in an industry like this one that’s constantly growing and full of competition. There are so many makeup artists and beauty professionals already offering their services, so how do you get ahead of the rest?

After setting goals for your salon business you need to do certain things to attract more traffic to your business. In this post we will cover some must haves that you need to consider running a well-organized, successful business. We hope these tips get your salon biz off on the right foot.

Let’s get started!

  1. The Right Tech

If you haven’t done so already, start promoting your work on social media sites. This is a great way to build a solid audience and share your work with the world. It’s also completely free and a great way to build connections with other entrepreneurs.

Moreover, use a technology to streamline the process of your business. For instance, GlossGenius is an innovative technology that makes the process of booking appointments, improving your business, and sending out reminders super simple. At GlossGenius you can benefit from the following:

  • Keep track of appointments
  • Maximize your income and receive next day payments
  • Make notes of client’s personal details to build stronger relationships
  • Get alerts prior to appointments reminding you of these customer details

We all know that successful businesses revolve around happy customers and this application can help you stay on track, schedule appointments, among so much more. Technologies like these are ideal for top beauty professionals.

  1. Loyalty Programs

As you grow your customer base you want to think about starting a loyalty program to keep your clients coming back time and time again. You can reward your customers for pre-bookings, trying a new service, booking appointments online, or referring friends. Having a point system in place is a fun way to keep everyone engaged.

Send out emails when you run promotions or launch a new service. Use integrated marketing to bring in more and more clients every day. You can do so by keeping all social media platforms up to date and posting regularly about your services.

  1. Online Surveys

Don’t you want to know how clients feel about your work? Surveys help you get a good idea of what your customers love and areas that could use some improvement. Sometimes we are so busy and immersed in our work that we overlook little details.

Customers surveys are a great way to get feedback. To encourage your clients to take the survey perhaps offer a 10% discount – or something similar – on their next visit.

Wrap Up

At the end of the day, you want to be sure you are being patient and consistent. A successful business is not made overnight and requires a lot of work. Make sure you are promoting your business any chance you get and keeping your current customers interested in your services through loyalty programs, surveys, etc.

We wish you the best of luck and would love to hear about your beauty success! What has worked for you? What hasn’t? We hope this information has given you some more insight on must haves and hope you put it to good use. Good luck!
