Following the crisis year of 2020, it is extremely important for the industries to create a marketing plan and strategy that is pandemic proof and helps not just in sustenance but also in increasing your revenue and improving your business. One of the most affected industries during the pandemic is the beauty industry of parlours, spas, and salons. They have been drastically affected by the social distancing and the no-physical contact practices followed due to the widespread COVID-19 cases. As yet, 2020 has brought about heavy losses to the beauty industry and pushed some of them even into poverty. To overcome this and fight the losses of the pandemic, a salon or a spa must be fuelled with an effective marketing plan. Here is Exygo’s guide to a productive marketing plan in just three steps for the salons, spas, and parlours:
Ready? Get Set, Go!
1. The first step is to get ready. By getting ready, it implies for the salons and parlours to be prepared for the financial year of 2021.
So, you have to collect and analyse your previous year’s business reports to have a complete picture of the vicissitudes through which you can set goals for the current year and stop repeating the steps which you took in the early year. If you are a long-term user of Exygo, you can easily access these reports, which are just a click away. Assess and choose what resulted in the increased customers and what didn’t.
Some of the important aspects which you should focus on in your business reports are the average number of appointments in a month, the monthly and yearly revenue, the increase in the number of customers in that year, the total number of customers of that year, and so on that will help you determine the cons and set your financial goals for the upcoming year. To help you maintain your customer data and analyse annual or performance reports, online appointment software will help you in generating automatic reports for you.Not just that, Exygo will also help you maintain paper-free e-invoices that save you time and energy in searching for a particular invoice.
