7 Salon Business Ideas to Get More Clients



Are you a salon owner who sometimes feels like you aren’t cut out for marketing? You aren’t alone in this. Marketing can be quite challenging and frustrating even for professional marketers. It would be crazy to expect small salon owners -who are on their feet all day by the way- to know their way around the murky waters of marketing. But as crazy as it sounds, it is possible to successfully utilize the few hours you get in the evening or weekend to generate new business leads.

There are millions of ways to attract, convert, and nurture new clients. This article elaborates on 7 of these ways in order to help you choose the one that aligns best with your strengths. You don’t have to do it all: Take one day, one step, and one approach at a time.

Idea 0: Invest in salon software

Before we delve into the meat and potatoes, let’s first elaborate on why salon management software is invaluable with regard to client attraction and retention. In fact, we should mention that the success of the 7 ideas we are about to share all depends on how well you utilize your salon software. This is why:

Every successful marketer will tell you that the most challenging part of marketing is identifying the perfect client; defining your buyer persona. Once you know the age, gender, financial position, social position, favorite social media platforms, and home address of your ideal client, every other bit of marketing becomes a breeze. That information points you in the direction of people who are highly likely to be interested in your brand and campaign messages. You, therefore, don’t waste too much of your very limited time engaging people who probably will never convert.

Salon management software can help you create and organize your salon’s client database. In the database, you can record information such as treatment history, skin tests, hair types, booking and payment records, home address, social profiles, and contacts. This info is crucial in defining your buyer persona.

Now that you know who you are targeting, where they live and hang out, and how they spend their hair and beauty budgets, let’s go ahead and look at 7 salon business ideas to attract more clients to your salon.

Idea 1: Work on your brand reputation

What do people say about your salon business to their social media followers, friends, and relatives? The answer to this question is the reputation that precedes all your marketing campaigns. If the reputation is tarnished, regardless of whether it’s through lies and malice, your salon will struggle to attract new clients. If the reputation is good, you will have an easy time convincing new clients to try out your services. That is why you should take a special interest in cleaning up your reputation (if it’s tarnished) and building a good reputation from scratch.

Here are a few affordable and easy brand reputation ideas for salon owners:

·         Establish yourself as the most knowledgeable salon owner in your locality. You can do that by sharing useful beauty blog posts with your website visitors, answering hair and beauty questions from your social media followers, and creating YouTube tutorials on hair and beauty. The key here is to ensure that your target clients admire your expertise and authority on hair/beauty topics.

·         Never allow a disgruntled client to walk out without first turning their frown upside down. Do everything you can to make amends before they go sharing their disappointment with everyone they know.

·         Be proactive when dealing with negative publicity on social media. If someone accuses you or your stylists of misconduct, respond to them as fast and as honestly as possible.

·         Create an army of loyal foot soldiers around your brand. This army should consist of your close friends, family members, and loyal customers. These are people who won’t stand and watch as other people trash talk your salon. You can reward them through discounts or whichever form of special treatment you think is appropriate.  

·         Most consumers in the 21st century are truly concerned about environmental conservation. Ensure that your salon is eco-friendly. Use eco-materials for your interior décor, offer eco-safe services, and invest in more eco-cosmetics.

·         Have a unique, fancy, and stylish dress code for your staff members. Ensure that everyone directly associated with your salon has top-quality manicures and hairstyles. These are your number one brand ambassadors. If they look bad and rugged, your reputation goes directly in the gutter.

·         Vet your new hires to ensure that they are as hardworking, goal-oriented, skilled, and passionate as you are. Employees interact with clients every day and their (mis)conduct is technically what advises clients’ perception of a salon.

·         Get ahead of online reviews. Ask happy clients for positive, authentic, and well-detailed reviews for your testimonial page. Most satisfied clients will do it for free.

·         Photograph your work and share those photos on your website and social media pages.

·         Partner with reputable social media influencers and community leaders to market your salon. If you have a respected religious leader or a local fashion model on your clients’ list, for example, your reputation can greatly benefit from being associated with such a person.

Idea 2: Make your salon client-friendly

With your reputation intact, ensure that clients who visit your salon for the first time are excited by what they see, feel, smell, and hear in your salon. We already mentioned that your salon’s interior décor should be eco-friendly. It should feel luxurious but mindful of the environment. That, in part, takes care of what clients see. What else can you do to create a client-friendly space?

·         Bring in live plants for both their air-cleaning and décor properties. They will help rid your salon of harmful toxins that may come from your furniture, equipment, and the products you use.

·         Ensure that the topics people discuss in the salon are family-friendly; that people of all ages, genders, races, sexualities, and religions feel comfortable in the space you create. Shoot down any offensive and/or disrespectful discussions depending on who is in the salon.

·         Ensure that your reception area feels warm and inviting. Comfy chairs, entertaining but educative magazines, scented candles, smiling receptionists, and soothing music will all come in handy here.

·         Create an organized and beautiful designated retail space so that clients can easily peruse through your inventory.

·         Invest in not only efficient but also sophisticated equipment. Subconsciously, people associate sophistication with quality.

·         Invest in overhead blow dryers, vertical storage units, beautiful countertops, and stunning framed mirrors.

·         Open up the space by decluttering and then invest in modern lighting fixtures for optimal lighting.

·         Most importantly, ensure that you tailor all your services in a unique and quality fashion. Train and retrain your staff members to ensure that they are the best in the business.

·         Create a corner for clients’ share-worthy “after” photos.

Idea 3: Use an online booking system, but don’t be impersonal

If you haven’t done it yet, it is important to invest in a hair salon online booking system ASAP. Online booking enhances the customer experience by handing clients control of their own appointments. You can sync the system with your employees’ calendars so that clients can see when their favorite stylists are free. They can then book and pay for appointments from anywhere in the world through the system. That level of convenience is good for customer attraction and retention.

To ensure that online visitors book appointments within their first minutes on your website, it is important to create a designated booking page on the site. You should then share links to the booking page across the internet and use QR codes to link your offline campaign materials to the page. Lastly, add “Book Now” and “Book Here” buttons on each one of your landing pages so that clients don’t have to look too hard to find them.

However, as convenient as online booking is, it also can feel a tad impersonal. Always create time out of your busy schedule to call or chat with the new clients who book online. Take this chance to provide pre-treatment consultations, discuss your offers, and inquire more about their scheduled appointment. Make them feel super-special even before they meet you in person.

Idea 4: Improve your website

This is assuming that you already have a professional website. A good website will help build your credibility online. It is the first contact that clients from Google and social media make with your business.

With the website in place, take these steps to improve it for better client attraction and retention:

·         Keep your web pages clean and relevant. It is more about the quality than the quantity of the content you share.

·         Avoid posting tacky stock photos on your landing pages. Go with actual, authentic photos taken in your salon.

·         Make sure that your price card is readable and accessible throughout the website, not just on the pricing page.

·         Choose a warm, friendly, and knowledgeable vibe as opposed to an overly promotional vibe. Too much promotional content can be off-putting.

·         Have as many call-to-action buttons as possible. These include “call now” and “book now” CTAs.

·         Optimize it for SEO. A good SEO company can do that for you at an affordable price.

·         Integrate the website with Google Analytics & Google My Business for a wider reach.

·         Write an optimized website description in Google and include local keywords such as “best salon in *your location*”.

·         Ensure that the website is readable and navigable on mobile.

Idea 5: Make Google your friend

We all know from experience that businesses that rank highest on Google are more visible to clients. That is why you should make Google your friend. The good news is that Google becomes your friend immediately after you improve your website. But there is more you can do:

i.                    Get as many five-star Google My Business reviews as possible. Your loyal foot soldiers can help you with that. Ask them nicely and they will gladly leave you feedback on Google. You can also incentivize employees to ask their client friends to review your business on GMB.

ii.                  Ensure that your business name, address, and phone number are accurate and consistent on all your online platforms.

iii.                Apart from the blog posts you post on your website, share high-quality guest posts on high-authority websites for back-linking purposes.

iv.                List your business in online directories including Your Local Chamber of Commerce, Better Business Bureau, Yelp, LinkedIn, Apple Maps, and Yellow Pages.

v.                  Invest in sponsored Google Ads to push your salon website to the pinnacle of local Google rankings.

Idea 6: Invest in video marketing

Videos help you create personal relationships with your target market. That’s provided they are educational and fun to watch. Besides, videos don’t get monotonous as fast as photos do. For effective video marketing:

·         Make a habit of going live on social media whenever something interesting and relevant comes up. This is particularly useful if you take part in charity and other community development initiatives. Your followers will definitely love being part of that experience, so you are guaranteed to get lots of attention. What’s more, live videos are similar to event marketing because you can advertise them and even invite guests.

·         Create short FAQ videos and share them online with regularity. Answer as many FAQs as possible.

·         Share a video on every offer or promotion you have lined up, and then cleverly flip your phone around to show clients a glimpse of the positive energy in your salon.

·         Tell your brand story through short videos. You can just go around the salon with a camera or a phone and record your team members at work. Mention something non-promotional-ish about your salon while at it. People get more attached to a business that oozes a non-promotional, human, and friendly vibe.

Idea 7: Create outstanding social media ads

Almost all your clients and prospective clients are on at least one social platform. You just need to know which platforms have the biggest chunk of your target market and then launch vigorous campaigns on those platforms. But because your local competition is also on those platforms trying to outdo you, you have to take your social media game a notch higher.

To ensure that your social media ads are outstanding, center your social media campaign on the things that make your salon different. Let people see your salon as a one-of-a-kind establishment. Some of the things that can make your salon different are the customized hairstyles you do, the community development programs you participate in, and the general vibe in your salon. Show that to clients and then once you have their attention, start promoting!


Remember: You don’t need to experiment with all 7 ideas at once. Take your time and comprehensively explore each idea at a time. Attracting clients and driving conversions takes time and patience, after all.

A Guide to Spring Cleaning Your Financial Paperwork



financial paperwork

If the spring-cleaning bug has bit you, you won’t stop at just washing your windows and cleaning under the fridge. Your job isn’t done until you can bring order to all areas of your life, including your financial house.

Even though online banking makes it possible to manage money virtually, the average person still collects a lot of snail mail over the year.

While throwing all that paperwork out may be tempting, this idea could cause problems in the future. You’re meant to keep certain financial documents — look below to see how long.

Personal Loan Contracts

Any time you borrow a personal loan or line of credit, you have to sign a loan agreement. This contract contains all the black-and-white details of your account, so you know what to expect when borrowing a line of credit or personal loan. Most importantly, it outlines your terms, payment schedule, and cost of borrowing.

While some traditional loans may mail you a paper contract, online lenders might send you an e-document. You should keep it in a safe place — whether it’s paper or digital. It should join any supporting documents or proof of payments for at least the lifetime of the loan.


You can safely get rid of phone and utility bills after one month. After all, most utility providers set you up with an online account where you can review digital copies of these bills.

The only exception is if you plan on using any of these bills for tax-related purposes. In that case, refer to the section on taxes for how long you should keep them.

Financial Statements

If our bank, credit card company, or lender still mails your monthly statements, financial advisors recommend you keep them for 12 months. Once again, you might have to keep them longer if you plan on using them as supporting tax documents.


Do you always say “yes” when the cashier asks if you want your receipt? Your wallet is probably bursting with receipts collected over the year.

The good news is that you can safely clear out most of them. There are only three times you should file away your receipts for safekeeping.

  1. It’s for a major purchase, like a new appliance, vehicle, or device. You may need to show this in case you need to return it or activate its warranty.
  2. It’s for household services or work done to your house, including renovations and repairs.
  3. You made a purchase you plan on writing off.

Insurance Documents

You should keep your auto, health, and life insurance documents until your policy expires, or you purchase a new package.


Tax time is stressful enough without having to fight against disorganized and missing paperwork, so pay particular attention to your returns this spring.

According to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA), you should keep your supporting documents for six years. However, some advisors recommend you keep all your tax documents indefinitely in case of errors. You should also retain copies of your returns, notices of assessment, and notices of reassessment.

Handle Your Finances with Care

Once you go through all your paperwork, you’ll be left with two piles: the paperwork to keep and discard. When it comes to the stuff you want to toss, make sure you shred it first so that no personal information may be exposed. As for the stuff you want to keep, look for a filing system that works for you. Choose a safe, dry place where you won’t lose things.

Benefits of Onboarding Military Veterans: Qualities That Make Them Excellent Employees



Onboarding Military

Hiring military veterans boosts your company’s recruitment and retention programs. Many people enlist in the military right out of high school or college. After years of military service, their civilian employment experiences may not correlate to your current job requirements. Don’t overlook the numerous benefits that hiring a veteran can bring to your organization. Here are some qualities you will likely hire when you onboard a military veteran.


Most military veterans want to work when they return to civilian life. They have dedicated their lives to service and are motivated to improve the world after they retire. An applicant may provide you with their military experience and free employment verification for Uber drivers report. This shows employers that the candidates have been actively working.


Veterans learn a significant amount of discipline in the military. They learn early on to listen to their leaders and follow directions when given. In addition, veterans are masters of self-discipline. They understand that meeting regulations gives them growth opportunities. You can trust that veterans are efficient and have the discipline to complete tasks as assigned. When those skills are observed by their peers, your entire staff often learns that self-discipline.


Honesty and integrity are instilled into a servicemember. They learn early on that their word is valuable. In addition, veterans will report perceived infractions of their colleagues through proper management channels. This integrity protects your company’s confidential business information. Peers learn to recognize that their co-worker is trustworthy and sincere.

Organizational Skills

While you may need to provide training on various job-related skills, your new hire will have excellent organizational skills. They are typically excellent project managers. They understand how to break a project down into individual processes and how to assign those tasks to appropriate team members. They are also familiar with the post-project analysis.


Due to the global nature of their military service, veterans work well with all individuals regardless of their ethnic background, religious preference, or gender. They encourage unity between colleagues of different physical or mental capabilities. Veterans serve as dynamic leaders, embracing diversification and inclusion in the workforce.

Financial Benefits

In addition to the soft skills that military veterans bring to your workforce, there are many financial advantages to recruiting these individuals. The Department of Labor has a comprehensive list of programs that help you offset the costs of onboarding a veteran. Your local Small Business Administration chapter can also help you find resources for your business. If you operate as a veteran-owned small business, SBA can help you obtain funding.

Other Considerations

The benefits of recruiting military veterans outweigh the few challenges you may experience. Some candidates may have difficulty transitioning into the civilian workforce. A mentoring program can give your employees a point of contact to answer questions or discuss their experiences. In addition, some applicants may have physical or mental disabilities that require accommodations. While you may not ask specifically about these injuries, you can inquire about accommodations. The Americans with Disabilities Act protects applicants and employees from discrimination.

Creating a sound veteran recruitment strategy is important for businesses of all sizes. By actively onboarding these individuals, you will experience significant growth opportunities for your business.

5 Tips for Finding the Perfect Office Space for Your Business




As a business owner, finding the perfect office space is a crucial step in creating a productive and efficient work environment. Your office space can affect the morale and productivity of your employees, as well as the image and reputation of your business. Here are five tips for finding the perfect office space in The Square for your business:

Determine Your Needs

Before starting your search for office space, you must determine your business’s specific needs. Consider the number of employees you have and the size of the office space needed to accommodate them comfortably. Also, think about your budgets and the amenities your business requires, such as a conference room, a break room, or a reception area.

Knowing your needs beforehand will help you narrow down your search and avoid wasting time and resources on office spaces that are not suitable for your business.

Location Matters

The location of your office space can significantly impact your business’s success. Choose a location that is easily accessible for both your employees and clients. Consider the proximity to public transportation, parking availability, and nearby amenities, such as restaurants and shops.

Additionally, think about the neighbourhood’s safety, reputation, and the image it portrays. A prestigious location can enhance your business’s reputation, but it may come with a higher price tag.

Consider Your Budget

Your budget is a crucial factor in finding the perfect office space. Determine how much you can afford to spend on rent and other expenses, such as utilities and maintenance. Remember to leave some wiggle room in your budget in case of unexpected expenses.

Consider the cost of leasing versus buying an office space. Leasing provides more flexibility, while buying gives you more control over the space and can be a good long-term investment. However, buying an office space requires a significant upfront investment and comes with additional responsibilities, such as property maintenance.

Think About Future Growth

When choosing an office space, think about your business’s future growth. Consider whether the office space can accommodate additional employees and equipment if needed. Look for a space that can be easily modified to suit your changing business needs.

Also, consider the length of the lease agreement. A short-term lease may be ideal if you anticipate growth or need the flexibility to move to a different location. A long-term lease may be better if you want to lock in a favourable rental rate or have a stable business model.

Get Expert Advice

Finding the perfect office space can be a daunting task, especially if you’re a first-time business owner. Consider getting expert advice from a real estate agent or a property management company. These professionals can help you navigate the rental market, negotiate lease terms, and find office spaces that meet your needs and budget.

Before hiring an expert, make sure to do your research and ask for references. Choose someone who has experience working with businesses similar to yours and who understands your specific needs and goals.

Visit the Space in Person

Once you’ve narrowed down your search, visit the office space in person. This will give you a better sense of the space’s size, layout, and condition. Check for any signs of damage or wear and tear that may need to be repaired before moving in.

Also, consider the office’s natural lighting, ventilation, and acoustics. These factors can affect your employees’ productivity and comfort level.


Finding the perfect office space for your business can be a challenging and time-consuming task, but it’s worth the effort. By determining your needs, considering the location, budget, and future growth, and getting expert advice, you can find an office space that meets your business’s specific requirements.

Remember, your office space in The Square Texas Tower is more than just a place to work. It’s a reflection of your business’s culture, values, and professionalism.

So take the time to find the perfect office space that aligns with your vision and goals, and create a productive and efficient work environment for your employees.
