It seems like only yesterday that a trip down to the local travel agent to book a holiday was the norm. Yet in the very short period of time, how we book flights, hotels, and how we do almost everything has moved online, from banking, dating and buying or renting a home.
Technology has made it so much easier for even the greatest technophobes among us to find what we want and the ever increasing number of platforms available, such as tablets and smart phones makes booking everything online so much more convenient.
Hair Bookings online and Beauty Bookings online are growing. Is your Salon set up to take them?
Not all industry sectors, however, have embraced the technology revolution and this is particularly evident in the hair and beauty sectors. According to our research, somewhere between 50%-60% of salons have no website presence with many only having a Facebook page. This makes it very hard for potential customers to find the information they need to book hair appointments online or to book beauty appointments online. While Facebook is great, and one of many tools that should be used by all salons to keep in touch with their existing client base, it was not designed to be a businesses only online voice. In addition, a client needs to be able to very easily access all relevant information they need to make a hair booking or beauty booking without having to scroll down through old timelines (with many pictures of cats) to find a price list.
Hair Salons & Beauty Salons need to understand that the first port of call for many potential new clients when searching for something is the internet via their mobile phone and not embracing this is like saying ‘I don’t want any new clients’
‘Businesses that don’t embrace online will struggle to survive’
