As summer comes to an end, it’s time to start preparing for the holidays at your salon or spa.
It may be hard to believe it’s time to get ready for holiday sales and soirees, but preparing far ahead of time will ensure you're as successful, and profitable, as possible this holiday season. Plus, you'll be able to focus more time serving your customers, instead of worrying about last-minute details.
With so much to do to be prepared, we've created a calendar to help make the most wonderful time of the year your most organized, and stress-free, yet.
Download a copy of our 2019 holiday prep calendar to keep you on track. Inside, you'll find a list of tasks for each month leading up to the holiday season, including when you should:
Order inventory and supplies, including additional gift cards, gift packages, retail products, and more
Add express or holiday-themed services to your menu
Market your holiday promotions or sales on social media, through email marketing, and in your space
Get your software ready for holiday sales and last-minute offers for Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday
Schedule check-ins with your team members so they feel supported all season long
Make your brick-and-mortar festive, including your waiting room and retail section, and so much more
The best part? We've provided dates for each task to help keep you on schedule. Each can be added to your own Google, Apple, or Outlook calendar.
Happy planning and happy (almost) holidays!
