I finally got a chance to sit down and blog. I have been busy..and usually I say that I am busy a lot, but I actually was busy. Being in a new salon is work. We are constantly promoting with social media, passing out flyers and running promotions to help promote the salon and ourselves. I can say this, most stylists wouldn’t do this, they wouldn’t go with a brand new salon with no client base or steady flow of walk ins. But even when a stylist goes to a known salon, you still need to put yourself out there. This is good experience for when I open my own studio, this is what I will need to do to promote myself. Its good to form the habit now.
I never know what I am going to blog until I actually sit down and start typing, but I was having this conversation earlier today the importance of social media and business. Everyone is online. I mean from kids to grandmas and even great grandmas are online in some form. Its entertainment and it’s a good way for people to share info in cyberspace. I love it because you can keep up with people in Australia, London, Africa, India (just to name a few) and its better than googling it. Platforms like blogs, youtube, instagram, twitter, vine and there are many more.
I have been at the salon busy making flyers, posting ads, passing out flyers and taking my clients and having fun doing makeovers.
In case you don’t follow my Instagram (sweetsurrenderart) and my new instagram account strictly for the salon (cia_la_glam)
here is a recap of the past week:
I have been drawing too, just not as much I want to. By the time I get home from the salon, I am just exhausted and lately Ive been taking too many naps. But I have a lot of work that is starting to get booked so, I need to get back on the grind!
Tomorrow is Tuesday, which is my Monday, so I am off to bed to get some shut eye! Thanks for stopping by! See ya in the next post!
