Should you be exposing yourself more?
Posted on 5th November 2014 by Paul Rose
When it comes to your business – of course you should! The best way to attract new clients is to expose yourself as much as you can – and the mylocalsalon booking directory is the ideal way to do it. Designed to work hand-in-hand with Shortcuts' online booking technology, mylocalsalon gives you the power to let new clients find you and book appointments in real-time. There are three key ways mylocalsalon gives you that exposure you need to grow your business.
Be a show off
A listing on mylocalsalon allows you to profile your business and showcase what you do best. New clients will find you by searching for a service in your area, and will then click through to your business listing. This page is effectively your shop window – you can show off your wares by posting photos of your work, a description of your business, a list of services you have on offer, and the brands you stock. If your clients like what they see, they will be able to book with you instantly. mylocalsalon will check your Shortcuts appointment book and offer only slots that are available, before confirming the booking with your client.
One of the most powerful features of mylocalsalon is the ratings and reviews tool. After clients have visited your salon, you can automatically invite them to leave a review via email. This means that your positive testimonials are being updated all the time – you can even share them via your Facebook or Twitter pages. You can also embed this feature in your website, so everyone who visits your site will be able to see what your clients are saying about you.
Fill your appointments
With mylocalsalon, you can fill your empty appointment slots with complete control! The specials features enables you to promote special offers, without the hassle of issuing discount vouchers. This is a great way to fill in the gaps in your appointment book on your quieter days, and because the client is always booking straight into your Shortcuts system, you can be assured that there will never be any accidental double booking.
