Attention Salon Owners: The Verdict’s OUT
We’ve looked at the results. Based on the number of views and responses to the articles, here are Salon Plaza bloggers 15 most valued posts in 2015. They will give you the Success Ideas and the Action Steps to make this year your best ever.
Come see what we discovered and why:
Social Media for Salons
Social Media was by far the most popular topic for our Salon Plaza bloggers. Here are our top 5 articles on email marketing, Google+ and the key question: Which is better… Instagram or Pinterest?
This is the REAL secret to getting clients on social media without wasting your money and time. Hint: Even though it’s the hottest new trend, it’s just another way to advertise… you got to start with your Core Power!
Keeping in touch with Emails is one of the best practices our Members use to stay in touch, build your value, and keep your clients on track. Here’s how to do it without spending HOURS every day.
Google loves Google+ and so should you. It’s a great way to improve your searchability on Google, which is the name of the game for attracting new customers from the Web to your chair.
The key thing for beauty professionals to do is to take those fabulous photos and showcase them on at least ONE of these platforms. With so little time to spare, how do you choose?
OK, so we got a little opinionated here. The best answer depends on whether your goal is to stay in touch with current clients or grow your book. Click to find out WHY…
Salon Start-Up Success
The next group of popular posts has to do with OPENING your salon and RUNNING it the most profitable, easy and FUN way. Because if you live your life like that, you’ll always look forward to getting out of bed in the morning.
Here are our most popular posts on getting started and staying open:
Whether you own a salon with many booths or you go solo, you really must consider how you establish and protect the atmosphere in your shop. This post will give you 10 ways to get it right.
We interviewed our most successful Members to find out what REALLY keeps them staying prosperous and happy. How many of these 10 rules do you already follow? And how many surprise you?
Do you rent a booth now? Are you on commission? If you’re tired of building someone else’s dream and are ready to open your own shop, these 7 steps will show you the way to do it right – without stumbling down the wrong path.

This post is popular because it touches on some important mindset challenges. Just like in sports and other PASSIONS… the way you think and feel each day sets the foundation for staying on the right side of prosperity.
Attracting and Keeping Loyal Clients
The next most popular topic from our Salon Plaza bloggers is how to attract new clients and keep your current clients coming back month after month. This is where the rubber meets the road… because if you don’t have enough clients, there’s just too much month at the end of the money.
Don’t let that happen to you!
One of the most important things you can do to keep clients coming back to you is to master the client consultation. Most salon professionals do a consultation of sorts… but can you improve it? You can think of this as a checklist – you may know these 5 power steps… but are you doing them now? Consistently, every time?
One of these might really surprise you.
There’s SO MUCH competition out there. With Groupon and every hairstylist on the planet on Facebook, what makes you stand out?
Why would someone choose YOU over anyone else down the road? And even more important, do you have what it takes to keep them coming back?
Of course, your training and experience matter… but that’s NOT the only skill you must possess…
With the cost of living being what it is – food, gas, clothes, your phone… not to mention a roof over your head… breaking through to $100,000.00 and more makes a BIG difference in your daily life and your ability to save for the future. (There WILL come a time when you won’t want to stand on your feet all day, you know.)
Our Members PROVE it can be done if you get this one single piece in place…
To go from booth renter to salon owner takes professionalism, personality, and perseverance. PLUS… this one quality that might surprise you. And if you develop this ability, it will make all the difference between just getting by truly being seen as the expert, go-to-person in your area.
