Managing a salon is no easy feat. You’ve got employees and clients to keep happy and engaged, and with so many appointments to schedule, your daily tasks can soon turn into a logistical nightmare. Luckily, with a few simple tweaks, you can improve your business’s operations while providing unparalleled customer service.
Sounds good? Let’s get into it.
Source Ideas From Employees
If you run your own salon, it’s normal to want to be the sole decision-maker. But listening to feedback from employees is more important than you think. For starters, they’re more likely to have an insider view of the day-in-day-out running of the salon and might have insights you’ve never thought of.
If they can think of a way that the booking process can be streamlined, hear them out. You might find a goldmine of ideas. Plus, 74% of employees are more effective at their job when they feel heard, and happy employees mean happy clients.
Deal With Unhappy Clients
Taking feedback personally is easy to do. We’ve all seen a poor online review of a booking or received a damning email and felt personally offended that despite trying our best, a customer is unhappy.
94% of consumers have avoided a company because of bad reviews, but you can turn your fate around by responding to the complaint with a polite, apologetic message, and offering them a discount.
Potential customers will see that you’re keen to solve problems and you take your customers’ opinions seriously. That way, the number of new bookings you receive won’t suffer as a result of one or two bad reviews.
No-shows kill your business. Not only are they time-consuming because you have to chase up the customer or book them in for another appointment, but a customer who doesn’t materialize takes away an appointment that somebody else could have had.
Want to reduce no-shows without having to spend your day calling with reminders? Use booking software that sends automatic reminders to customers with appointments. That way, they’ll be reminded to let you know if they can no longer make it.
Remember Customer Details
If we’re honest, we all like to feel special and valued. Your customers are no different.
Whether it’s remembering which haircut they prefer or picking up where you left off with a chat about their next vacation, customers appreciate when you remember the small details.
With the right booking app, you can keep note of customer preferences and details for next time while allowing them to book with a stylist of their choice to respect their personal preferences.
Streamline With a Booking Management App
If only there was a way to control inventory, increase client retention and referrals, book and manage online appointments, and keep a detailed record of client preferences, all in one place. We’re about to blow your mind - there is.
