Salon Iris Press Release
Treat Your Salon This Holiday Season
By Adam Oberhausen & Lauren Stier
For Immediate Release: January 11, 2010
The demands of running a busy salon coupled with the additional stress of the holidays are enough to drive any salon manager crazy. What does it take to bring order out of all the chaos so that you can finally enjoy your holiday season? Well, it’s no secret that successful salons develop streamlined methods to handle their day-to-day operations. This holiday season may be the perfect time for you to assess the needs of your salon and take the next step to giving yourself an even greater competitive edge.
Shelly of Bella Pelle, Inc. explains how incorporating Salon Iris software (www.saloniris.com) made all the difference in her salon: “The ease of reporting, logging in and out for staff, payroll, scheduling appointments, online booking -- Salon Iris software is right there keeping our business flowing and giving confidence to the client that we are professional and a top of the line establishment … even from the first moment they receive the automatic email confirmation.”
If you haven’t already, you might want to consider incorporating scheduling and client management software to help streamline your salon. Good salon software will not only reduce stress on your employees during that most wonderful and busiest time of the year, but it will also help bring more business into your salon. For instance, Salon Iris software can track gift cards which can be custom made and printed with your business logo and information. Gift cards act as an immediate and low maintenance marketing tool for your business by introducing new clients to your salon. These clients will be linked to your salon through your gift cards and will keep coming back for more, even after the holiday season.
With the holidays just around the corner, it’s important that you and your staff remain poised so that your clientele remain satisfied. There are many things you and your staff can do on a personal level that will have a positive effect on the day-to-day operations of your salon. For example, you may wish to encourage your salon professionals to get a good night’s rest, eat a healthy breakfast, and get some physical activity in everyday. The idea is to take the necessary steps to ensure that you, your salon professionals, and your salon itself are all working as a cohesive unit. Don’t be afraid to get creative and embrace the holiday spirit!
One of the most important points to remember during this, busy time is that your clients are coming into your salon to escape the stress of their daily lives and grueling schedules. Your salon is their sanctuary; out of all the salons and spas they could have gone to, they came to you. Keep in mind that you are not just providing them with a service, you are providing them with an experience. If you make that experience worthwhile, then your clients will always come back for more.
So this holiday season, make the commitment to yourself, your business and your clients to make your business run more smoothly and efficiently. This is the holiday season that will be better. With the right tools and people in place, managing your salon can be as therapeutic as the luxurious services you offer.
