Becoming a beauty pro is about so much more than servicing clients and selling products that make people feel good. It’s about becoming part of a community that supports its members and thrives on collective success. As a GlossBoss, we know you love the GlossGenius app, but more than that, we know you love to see fellow professionals embrace being their own boss.
You know firsthand how much easier GlossGenius makes your life as an entrepreneur, so why not tell everyone you know about GlossGenius and earn financial, educational, and product perks for doing so? We’ve recently upgraded our referral program with exciting new incentives that aim to bring you even more rewards and help you invest back into your business. In classic GlossGenius fashion, you’re only a few taps away!
Here are the basics of our upgraded referral program:

We’re in the business of making business easy, and our referral system is as simple as it gets. We’ve provided four easy ways to invite your friends and fellow beauty professionals to GlossGenius, so there’s always an option to suit your style or situation.
A big part of being a beauty boss is creating a sense of community. It’s important to your growth and your position as a leader to support other small business owners in their journey – even those outside of the beauty and wellness industries. Sharing GlossGenius means empowering other service-oriented professionals with the tools to become an entrepreneur, so invite anyone and everyone who’s looking to take the next step in building their own empire.
A few common invitees might include other professionals in your salon suite, connections within beauty or wellness-related networking groups you’ve joined, and folks looking to make the switch from other software or – gasp! – pen and paper. And don’t forget the beauty pros that you visit as a client. Next time you’re in the pedicure chair or on the massage table with your favorite tech or therapist, share the gift of GlossGenius with them as a bonus gratuity.
If you’re just getting started and haven’t yet built up your own circle of industry friends, you don’t have to feel like you don’t know anyone to refer to. As business owners in a creative industry like beauty, we invite you to think outside the box and expand the scope of who your network might include. While GlossGenius was created with beauty and wellness in mind, entrepreneurs across a variety of industries have jumped onboard, from tattoo artists to dog groomers.
In addition to encouraging you to build community, we’re also looking out for your bottom line. As you expand your network of referrals, you’re essentially investing back into your business because with each referral who makes the switch, you’ll save more money – and so will they.
When you’re chatting with industry friends, it’s likely that the challenges of everyday life as a business owner inevitably arise. It’s also common to rave about products, tricks, and techniques that you’ve recently discovered, right?
When suggesting a friend try GlossGenius, remind yourself that you’re simply sharing something you love in the hopes that it will make the life of yet another beauty boss a lot easier. If it helps, think about a specific issue your peers have vented about in the past and use it as an opportunity to let them know you were thinking of them. Strike up a conversation that feels natural and authentic to you and your friends.
For example, if tax time is around the corner and your beauty biz BFF has told you how much they dread doing their taxes, reach out with a simple text saying:
“Hey! I remember you mentioned you were having a tough time keeping your biz reports organized and I thought of you today while I was reviewing my expense report. GlossGenius has made tax time such a breeze for me, it’s life-changing. You have to check it out!”
Don't forget to mention they can try GlossGenius with a free trial (no credit card required) and get $30 when they use your referral code. It’s a win-win!
Remember, there are reasons YOU switched to GlossGenius and the strongest social proof you can share is your personal story. Share your own experiences about life before and after using the app and they’ll surely be persuaded. Plus, we’re confident in how we compare against competitors with every feature – from cost and functionality to usability and presentation – so if your story still doesn’t compel them, this will.
Once your invitee has signed up for the trial, make an effort to support them during and after the trial period. Offer to hop on the phone or meet up for coffee to walk your friend through the app. Take them through some of the common scenarios they might encounter on a day-to-day basis and share real-life experiences where GlossGenius has benefited your business. Be sure to show them all of your favorite features or some of the lesser-known hacks (like adding your accountant to Teams for an easier-than-ever tax season or taking inventory in seconds with the Products tracker).
Because we know how busy you are and that it's sometimes impossible to keep up with everything, we’ve also integrated a track-and-remind dashboard into our referral program. In the referrals section of the app (Referrals > Track My Earnings), you’ll be able to track your earnings from referrals, see how many referrals have activated their accounts, and see who it’s time to follow up with. You’ll also be able to send an auto-populated email or text to anyone you have referred to give them a friendly nudge to sign up for their GlossGenius free trial (no credit card required!)!
