MIKAL clients - easy upgrade idea!

Posted on June 26, 2019 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (0)

I was reviewing some of our MIKAL long term accounts - maybe you! And noticed that you are still on an OLD version of MIKAL!

The latest and greatest has Automatic Text and E-mail marketing, keeps client pictures, has much more flexible reporting, and has years of updates and enhancements written into the system.

So why not upgrade now?

If you have been holding off due to the one time cost I have a solution. Switch to the rental version of MIKAL!

2019 Salon and Spa Ideas

2019 is HERE! We are starting the New Year!

Don't think New Year's Resolutions, think New Year's EVOLUTION

Resolutions don't work. The average person keeps them for less than 2 weeks (remember the gym membership, fruit diet, juicer machine etc…;). So the wheels will fall off the Resolution train.............

Why don't resolutions work? Because it is our human behavior. It is our habit. It is easy. It might even be satisfying. So instead of trying to change behav...

Product and Service Charges are good for you and your staff!

Posted on September 28, 2018 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Product and Service Charges:

Many of our salons/spas are setting up product deductions or service charges to stop paying commissions on products used in a service and to help cover education, client marketing, and business building promotions.  NOT to cover the overhead of running the salon/spa.

 You could raise the commission percentages at each level if you set up a product charge and service charge. These charges will take the cost of professional products "off th...
