Securing a new client is expensive.
Retailing a new client is critical.
There are some haircut industry best-practices that can be applied to a new client marketing program to dramatically stack the odds in the haircutters favor that new clients will be retained.
We know some things.
We know that it is hard to make a client happy on a first haircut experience.
We know that we learn more about a client’s hair and how to make them happy from a few visits, three to be exact.
We know that if we serve a client three times in a row we are exponentially more likely to retain them long-term.
We know that clients who purchase and use take-home hair care product are more likely to be happy.
We know happy clients stay.
We know happy clients send their friends for haircuts, too.
Let’s use what we know to craft the ultimate haircut experience for first-timers.
Let’s leverage our skills and knowledge so that every first-time client can become a long-term client.
Let’s keep it simple too.
