Posted by Debra Cope on Dec 21, 2014 10:38:00 AM

Salon Customer Retention Secrets

If you are like most salon owners and independent beauty professionals, you already know what is your MOST IMPORTANT ASSET...

Your Clients!

And when you get them, by Goodness, you do everything in your power to keep them from slipping away.

But what you might not realize yet is that based on the value of your cosmetology skills alone, you won't keep them over the long run. Sure, you might keep them for a few months or a year or two, but VALUE alone won’t keep them loyal to you for life.

Salon Plaza's 3 Best Salon Client Retention Secrets

If you look around at the established, most successful salon professionals, you’ll find they have clients who have been with them for five, ten, even twenty years or more. Some of our Salon Plaza Members tell me that a few of their very first clients are still with them... 30 years later.

Hair Salon Owners: How To Write A Press Releases To Get More Clients

Posted by Debra Cope on Nov 30, 2014 8:00:00 PM

Use Press Releases to Bring in Business to Your Hair Salon

Tip: Interview a salon industry expert and write about your conversation

Online press releases serve the same purpose as traditional press. Instead of appearing in a newspaper, they get picked up and circulated by Google and Bing and  many online news sites.

They get published just as you write them, including any links you give as well.

Why Should Cosmetologists Write Press Releases?

Attention Salon Professionals: 

If you rely on referrals to get new clients, let me ask you a question...

Are you making it as easy as possible for your current fans to tell the people they know about you?  I don't mean social media "friends".

I'm talking about putting word-of-mouth on auto-pilot.
