Running a salon is a busy job, so it’s easy to forget daily salon tasks you should be doing. However, it’s important to remember these as they can help your business run more efficiently or even boost revenue. So, to help jog your memory, here are five easy things you could be doing daily in the salon.
1 – Daily Salon Tasks: Upselling during consultations
We know the consultation is a key time to find out what the client wants, but do you know these secrets for the perfect consultation? Even if you do, let’s face it – there are so many daily consultations that it’s easy to forget something important.
One key thing to remember is that the consultation is a great time to start the upselling process, as outlined in our five steps to successfully sell your salon products. There may be a product that will help with the aftercare of their treatment, for example, or help achieve what the client is after between now and the next treatment!
2 – Daily Salon Tasks: Input notes and admin
Imagine this scenario – the client asks for the same as they had last time, Carly who carried out the service isn’t available… and they left no notes in the client’s record. Thanks, Carly. In her defence, it’s easy to forget this, but now you’re stuck with a guessing game. So, one key salon daily task you should be doing is scheduling some admin time to write up notes from client appointments. That way, staff will know what’s what for the client’s next visit.
3 – Daily Salon Tasks: Upselling gift cards
Do you know why it’s important to sell gift cards online for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Mother’s Day? Well, they make for the perfect item to sell ahead of seasonal events, ready for clients to gift them to a loved one! Gift cards can then bring in a potential new client. Therefore, it’s worth remembering to upsell gift cards as part of your daily salon tasks that can help increase revenue. We have several tips to help increase your gift card sales with these easy steps, should you need them.
4 – Daily Salon Tasks: Rebooking
Rebooking is a great way to get clients to book their next appointment after a treatment. This helps secure future revenue and gets clients back in for a follow-up treatment on their hair, nails or skin. So, it’s important to get into the habit of prompting clients to rebook, as outlined in our guide on how to increase your salon rebooking rate!
5 – Daily Salon Tasks: Running daily reports
It’s dead easy to forget to run regular reports, particularly ones you should be running as often as every day. A salon management system, such as Salon by Premier Software®, can run reports on areas such as stock usage, which will help measure what items of stock have been used and plan ahead for stock orders. You can then schedule these to be run automatically, which will help against any forgetfulness from all your other daily salon tasks!
In fact, we have put together five useful salon reports to help manage your time effectively that will be useful to run regularly, as well as any reports for growth using Salon.
Salon can help manage the day-to-day of your business in other areas too, including automate marketing, end of day, staff schedules, client record info and, of course, booking clients into a diary. To find out more about how Salon can help you, click the button below.
