If you want to know more about attracting and keeping clients, simply sign up for our 52 Keys to Success. The weekly marketing tips you will receive are designed to help you attract clients like crazy, whether you own your shop or right now are renting a booth and need to attract your own clientele.
Just for a moment, pause and visualize what your life would be like if you ran your own salon…
- YOU set your own schedule
- NEVER ask permission to take time off
- Set the atmosphere just the way YOU want it to be…
Before you open your own shop, it’s not enough to have great beauty skills and the dream to own it…
You must also have a solid book of business who will come with you to your new place. When you have enough loyal clients to keep you pretty much as busy as you want to be, then you’ll have a far greater chance to make it on your own.
You just can’t run a business without clients!
There’s nothing else like ownership –
- Gain freedom and more control over your schedule
- Create an atmosphere that reflects YOU
- Develop close one-to-one relationships with your clients
If you work in someone else’s shop right now, your income is probably stuck on “neutral.” And if you know how to run it right, with your own salon you will make more money for you and your loved ones. You’ll live a better life.
As one salon owner recently told me…
“Working for someone else means you give up a lot of control for not much money.”
If you’re even thinking about owning your own place, build up your clientele FIRST – you will be much stronger when you get started.
