Salon Marketing Online: The Benefits of Joining Our Forum
Today I am going to discuss with you the importance of joining an online forum dedicated to all Salon owners.
Many Salon Owners feel isolated and alone in running their business, but feel that they are way too busy to attend any Business group meetings. This is where an online forum dedicated to Salon Owners, accessible 24 hours a day, comes into play. It is like hitting the jackpot in terms of information sharing and support. Hair Salon Marketing
“I’m far too busy to visit a forum” you say. However, when you’re spending so much time building and advertising your salon, my advice would be find the time. You will be amazed how much it benefits your business in the long term.
Hair Salon Marketing: What are the Benefits of Joining Our Forum?
You will always find someone willing to share their knowledge with you. This is vitally important as no matter what, you need knowledge. This knowledge could range from what specials worked, how they overcame a staffing issue, or customer retention. I like to think of Forums as a live and growing encyclopedia of knowledge that can help you. With topics from A – Z; how good is that?
Income Building Information is another big reason to join a forum. Forum members tend to be very open with what they share, as they do not see you as competition seeing everyone is spread across the globe. You will pick up some fantastic ideas for specials and other income building tips that can increase your salon’s bottom line very quickly.
You can also ask for feedback from the members on a potential monthly special you plan to offer to your clients. To get feedback on something like this is very valuable.
Products and Wholesalers: to find good product suppliers and the latest products is another good reason for joining a forum. Think for a moment how many different brands of products are available for you to stock your salon shelves and how many different wholesalers there are waiting for your business. You can possibly obtain valuable feedback on how a certain product line went with other salons clients or how good the wholesaler was. What you do not want are products that clients dislike so they just sit on the shelf, a wholesaler that is tardy in their approach, or just generally difficult to get along with.
Forums also help you to keep up to date with the latest styles, trends, colours, products and tools of the trade, as well as what’s hot at the tradeshows around the globe. All this will impact in a positive way on your Salon.
You will make friends even though it will be like a pen pal through the forum. Oh, I know you’re busy, but there’s always time for a bit of networking. Meeting different people and socialising with them via the forum will make you a more rounded person. Sharing needs and problems can be therapeutic and can also lead to finding solutions.
Last but not least, you can access the forum on your own time 24 hours a day. Even if you pop in once a week, I know you can benefit from becoming a valuable participant.
