We are definitely in interesting times... I am thinking of all of you that have had to close your salons at the moment due to COVID-19. Please remember that it is not only you, we are all in this together and we will get through this together.
When all this is over we are going to see a big influx of clients wanting their tan done for the multiple parties that will be held in celebration.
I have compiled a list of tips that could help you get through this situation in regards to your business:
- Store your tan solution in a dark cool place, if it is open store in the fridge to make it last longer.
- Store your retail products in a cool dark place.
- Use this time to give your salon and booth a good clean, also give your machine filter and gun a good clean also.
- Use this time to study a new beauty service to add to your business. Study a business, marketing or social media course that will help your business.
- Flog your retail products on your social media, people might still want to tan at home.
- Check your stock levels and anything you need to fix or replace and make sure its all ready to go when you restart.
- See if you can put a hold on your rent if you are in a commercial place.
- Defer your loan repayments with your bank.
- Check the Centrelink website if you are entitled to any payments.
- Put a hold on your Eftpos fees.
- Cancel or put a hold on your insurance, only if you can't afford to make the payments.
- Put a hold on your website, if you are paying it or if you don't have one already make your own website using wix.com, its very easy!
- Last one.... REST..... use some of this time to rest and spend with your family, when was the last time you had a Saturday off? or a Thursday night? We will probably never get this time again.
The beauty industry will be hit HARD (in a good way) when the restrictions are lifted, everyone will want to get a tan, or nails, and they will be way overdue for their waxing. I anticipate there will be lots of parties going on when it is lifted and you will be needed!! You will BOUNCE back!
