Salon Owner guest blog - what MIKAL has done for her

Posted on June 22, 2021 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (6)

Fred,

I want to share with you one of the biggest challenges of my career in the beauty business and how I recovered with the knowledge I have gained from you and your team and with our MIKAL software.

In March two employees moved several blocks down to a booth operation. One stylist was the top producer who had seven years with us. The other stylist had been with us for twenty years and was a reliable performer. They accounted for more than $200,000 of gross income.

MIKAL clients - easy upgrade idea!

Posted on June 20, 2021 at 3:55 PM Comments comments (60)

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.

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

You can re...

That's right sell giftcards in the SUMMER!

How?

Be creative

- Do a corporate gift card special call for example flyers. Companies are looking for easy feel good benefits for their employees and you have the perfect solution. Get a client that is in sales and out of work and get them to canvas local businesses with the flyers. Give them 10% on the cards they sell! Use our giftcard option to track this.

 - Do DOUBLE POINTS on Mon-Wed to keep the business going t...

Now for the software

Square does not have Employee goals, employee retention tracking, employee sales analysis except very basic sale...

MIKAL salons and spas are experiencing a big increase in Rebooks and Prebooks using EMBA the employee mobile booking app!
