Whether you’re hooked on pen and paper, still using other software solutions, or just starting to seek out the best salon software for you, we want you to picture this: what does your business look like before GlossGenius and after?
We know you love a good before and after; below are a few snapshots of how our smart and stylish software can give your beauty business the makeover it deserves.
If your phone is ringing off the hook with clients looking to book with you, that’s a great problem to have… until you start forgetting to schedule them, start missing appointments, and have no details on their last visit because you didn’t have your planner in front of you when they called. If you’re still using a physical calendar, you may be robbing both yourself and your clients of efficient time management. We understand there’s something charmingly old school about the pen-and-paper method, but we suggest leaving that endearing mode of note-taking to your personal journal and bringing your business into the digital age.
With an all-in-one booking solution that works day and night, your clients can book at their convenience. That means your regulars don’t have to wait until business hours to get their beauty appointments confirmed and you don’t have to be in front of your planner every time a client calls. Clients can book at 2 a.m., and when you wake up, all of their details are already on the (digital) books.
This before and after is courtesy of Linda Jordin, a hair removal specialist and owner of Bare Necessities in Washington. Having worked in a variety of salons before going independent, Linda was familiar with apps such as Vagaro and MindBody, both of which she found cumbersome to use. She tried StyleSeat for Bare Necessities but got frustrated when they started charging her clients for canceling within 24 hours and inflated prices for what they considered 'hot spots.'
After signing up for GlossGenius' complimentary White Glove data transfer service, she had all of her client information, notes, upcoming appointments, and services transferred to GlossGenius in a matter of days. She was instantly happy to have both a low flat fee of 2.6 percent on payment processing, along with absolute control over what her clients are charged. As a result of switching, Linda enjoys an 80 percent-plus rebooking rate and has doubled her income year over year – talk about a glow-up!
Next, let’s have a look at the before of Larry ‘Mann’ Ball of Mann Brow. Larry knew that he needed a solution that would give him a professional presence with clients. After considering Acuity and Square he didn’t care for how ‘normal’ they looked, referencing the bland, cookie-cutter websites and booking experience. Instead, he wanted a business app that would help him and Mann Brow shine.
Larry instantly liked the look and feel of GlossGenius – particularly how the polished website perfectly elevated his personal brand. The gorgeous custom website, the seamless client booking experience, and the fact that the app helps business owners understand their metrics at a glance was all the transformation he needed.
The client work, the accounting, the marketing, answering the phone – it’s all on you! When you’re in the salon, you’re returning calls, doing inventory, and of course, seeing clients. Even when you’re not in the building, it feels like there’s no end in sight when you’re burdened with posting on social media, tallying up your sales in a spreadsheet, or texting clients you haven’t seen in a while. Being a business owner isn’t easy, but does it have to be that demanding?
GlossGenius is the solution designed for beauty professionals, so you can be your own boss, grow your business, maximize your income, and stay in control without losing your sanity. Running a salon is made easier with appointment scheduling, free same-business-day deposits, client management, and built-in marketing tools that are all automated so you don’t have to run yourself ragged trying to do it all.
As an all-in-one solution for small businesses in the beauty industry, GlossGenius works 24/7 so you don’t have to.
