Winter Camp MIKAL 2019 Camp and 2018 Las Vegas! Tuscany Suites and Casino VEGAS! RECAP

WOW – our batteries were recharged this past week. A great group of owners, managers and receptionists met for 3 days in VEGAS! and shared amazing ideas and strategies on Staffing, Marketing, Inventory Control and so much more.

Let me recap a few of the highlights:

Loyalty points system is in place and working for about half the group. After the meeting I’ll bet (haha) everyone gets on the Client Loyalty bandwagon. BIG ideas included using the points to automatically reward rebookings, referrals, and retail purchases, rolling ALL of those marketing strategies into a self running client rewards program. Activating the points to show on the workticket, at point of sale, and on the client receipt.

Idea: make it a policy a NO SHOW loses their points!

Idea: delete all points at the end of the slowest month of each year and everyone will come in that month to use their points!

JITA is only be used by 20% of the attendees. I’ll wager (haha) after the meeting everyone goes home and sets up JITA – Just In Time Appointments. JITA users reported the option that fills the holes in the book automatically added ONE more Appointment per day per employee to the book! WOW

Surveys were a big topic. Everyone signed on to Survey Monkey and looked at Mikal’s 5 sample surveys and learned how to attach them to the Mikal Autopilot new client, reminder, and other automatic emails to get TONS of immediate feedback from clients.

IDEA: share the survey results in staff meetings.

These ideas are only a few of the ones I jotted down during the CAMP. Thank you Campers – see you in January! Fred 513-528-5100
