The 3 R’s of Success: Retail, Rebooking and Referrals.

In the crowded world of the beauty business, there exists a simple yet often forgotten trio of strategies known as the Three Rs: Retail, Rebooking, and Referrals. These fundamental principles, while simple, are often missed by stylists, estheticians, and wellness providers in their day-to-day operations. Nevertheless, they are the cornerstone of every beauty salon success; essential to building customer loyalty as well as attracting new clients.

For a new service provider, they may have not learned about the 3 Rs in school or during their onboarding in their new job. By implanting Retail, Rebooking, and Referrals; it will keep you at the top of being a service provider and assist in the bottom line of the business.

Let’s break down each R:

1. Retail.

While some beauty professionals may feel uncomfortable or inexperienced in selling retail products, it’s essential to recognize its significance. Retail sales not only provide an additional source of revenue for the business but also play a crucial role in enhancing the client experience.

By recommending and selling products tailored to clients’ needs, beauty professionals can reinforce their expertise, build trust, and strengthen client loyalty and REPUTATION! When a client walks out with a product it increases their loyalty to the salon through a perceived professionalism.

Clients should be buying from you because you’re the expert. Educating clients about the benefits of specific products and how to use them effectively can further enhance their satisfaction and encourage repeat purchases.

2. Rebooking.

On average, only three in every ten new clients will return to your salon. This means, only 30% of new clients are returning. That’s a big problem and can make the difference between you being called in for the day vs another service provider who has requests.

If possible, set your clients up for the whole year because that’s the best option to secure their rebooking. Provide your guests with a clear vision for the future for the health of their skin, hair, and body. For example, with hair coloring you know in advance that they will need to redo their highlights at certain points in time, so suggest a plan and get them excited about it.

By recommending follow-up appointments based on clients’ needs and preferences, beauty professionals can demonstrate their commitment to their clients’ long-term beauty goals. Additionally, offering incentives such as discounted packages or priority booking slots can encourage clients to book future appointments in advance.

3. Referrals.

The lifetime customer value will transform the way you think about what each new customer is worth to your business. Word-of-mouth referrals are incredibly valuable in the beauty industry, as they rely on personal recommendations and endorsements from trusted sources.

Growing your business from a referral clientele is one of the most cost-effective ways to drive new business. 78% of consumers say they trust peer recommendations as a way of vetting beauty professionals and their level of skill. Share with each client about any referral program the salon offers, or simply ask the client to send you friends.

Beauty professionals can encourage referrals by providing exceptional service, building strong relationships with clients, and offering incentives for referrals, such as discounts or rewards. Implementing a formal referral program and providing clients with referral cards or promotional materials can also help facilitate the referral process and amplify its impact on business growth.

In conclusion, the Three Rs—Retail, Rebooking, and Referrals—are not merely buzzwords but essential pillars of success in the beauty industry. By prioritizing these strategies, beauty professionals can elevate their businesses and thrive in their endeavors. Embrace the Three Rs and unlock the full potential of your salon or spa under the banner of Phenix Salon Suites.
