- Don’t ignore the power of traditional marketing
For some who aren’t always “on-line”, printed posters or standees are key. Create a well-designed poster to put up in your salon or any commercial areas. Plenty of customers still get interested with traditional ads. Don’t forget to print out some business cards too. Hand them over to your customers and maybe give some to strangers along your way. Who knows, right? They can be your most loyal customers.

People love goodies! When customers see a slashed price it will automatically trigger their interest. You can also give discounts during holidays or whenever there’s a special occasion. You can also offer vouchers to current customers who will refer a friend. So many possibilities – just get your creative juices out!
These are just a few tips to get you started but the most important of all is your motivation. Don’t be afraid and go out of your comfort zone. Small steps are okay!
