With just hours to go, we figure you are up the walls getting everything ready to RETURN TO WORK!!! While it’s all very exciting, there’s a lot of work being done across the country, as businesses in the Hair and Beauty Sector prepare to welcome back their loyal clients.
There are new ways of doing business and while its imperative that we are organised and ready to open our doors, it is also important to prepare your clients for what they can expect.
So with all this in mind, we have prepared some social slides to ease the work load on you. We’ve picked some HOT TOPICS and created some content for you to use on your facebook or instagram pages.
What you now have to do it:
- Pick the HOT TOPICS that are most important for you and your clients
- Add your business logo to the slide (if you wish!)
- Post the slide and include an explanation that informs your client of what they can expect in relation to the particular topic when they arrive at your outlet.
- Post as many or as few as you need.
- Breath a sigh of relief and tick another job off the TO-DO LIST!!!
So now you have the content… but what are you going to say? Every salon, spa, barber shop and nail bar will have different policies and new ways of managing their space… so these are just suggestions, you’ll know what is right for your business.
