New Year, New Promotions

How many of you are still wiped out from the hustle and bustle of the holidays? The holidays bring about a big increase in sales, full books, and also a drained staff!

Keep your salons revenue high by implementing these ideas: Keep the promotions running into January and February. We realize you just got off of the promotional band wagon, but it makes sense to offer sales or promotions into the New Year. Take note of your slower days and your stylists that have openings and talk to them to come up with some promotions that will drum up business and keep your sales up. Instead of slashing prices on your services, why not take the angle of adding value?
