How StylistPop helped Carol Smith grow her business.
Here’s the behind the scenes story of how StylistPop Salon Software helped a client double her income in a few months.
From a young age Carol S. knew she wanted to be a hairstylist.
She spent her younger years in her grandmother’s salon and went on to hone her skills at various salons throughout Washington state. However, simply being a stylist wasn’t enough, the promise of one day owning her very own salon was always in the back of her mind.
The day came when she found the perfect location for her salon in Redmond, WA and set up shop. At first she was only working a few days a week for 3-6 hours a day maintaining the clientele that loyally followed her from her previous position but that wasn’t enough.
She was only bringing in a mere $2,000-$3,000 after expenses and because of this her family was suffering. In April of 2010 Carol decided it was time to bring on some change.
She knew she could not afford to pay a firm to handle the marketing, so she decided to take matters into her own hands.
She read the stylistpop blog & learned all she could about social media networking and put into action what she had researched. The results were almost immediate, Carol had increased her clientele by 30 individuals per month and was now bringing in a five figure profit.
Through her efforts she landed a spot on the first page of Google results and had to take on another stylist to deal solely with the Google flow. Now she has signed a new lease and was able to expand to 700 sq ft and because Google continues to bring in an average of 45 clients every month, she’s in the market for yet another stylist.
The thing to take away from this success story was that she was able to enable her business to bloom without shelling out big bucks through merely taking initiative. It worked for her, it can work for you.
Always be proactive & never stop learning!
