Take pride IN YOUR service job?

Have you ever described yourself as “just a therapist”? The temptation to be self-deprecating at work is real and very common among beauty industry professionals. It’s a learned behaviour that is often driven by the desire to be humble about our achievements.

But here’s the thing: beauty is a multi-billion-pound industry that makes real changes in the lives of our clients. There’s value in the work that we do, and when you “just” yourself, you sell yourself massively short. So, if self-deprecation is your default setting, there’s so much to be gained by increasing your professional visibility.

Investing in yourself = investing in your business

Regardless of whether you’re a solo operator or running a mid-sized operation, being a business owner is a tough gig. It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day comings and goings. By seeking out business advice from a mentor who understands the challenges of the beauty industry, you’re not only investing in your business but also your own personal growth.

Take your business to the next level

Using professional systems, such as Timely Business Management Software, will take your business to the next level. You don’t need to be flashy to run a business worthy of serious software.

With Timely, you can quickly access reports and data that will help you run your business in a smart, efficient way. On average, Timely-powered businesses reduce no-shows by 30%, boost their rebooking rate by 20%, and increase total sales by up to 94%.

Know when to outsource

Are you one of the many business owners who still self-identifies as a beauty therapist or hairdresser while also doing the work of a receptionist, accountant, stock manager and PA? When you try to do everything, you put yourself on a fast track to burnout.

Step into your power as a capable businessperson by learning to outsource.

Timely streamlines your admin so you can focus on the big picture. Using Timely, you can take your bookings online, allowing clients to book 24/7 via Instagram, Facebook and your website.

The software can also send appointment reminders, rebooking prompts, and review requests (among other things).

By investing in Timely, you can step up your offering and feel confident that you’re delivering a best-in-class client experience from start to finish. For a limited time, Timely is offering all businesses 40% off for six months. To redeem the offer, just start a free 14-day trial. You’ll automatically get this incredible offer once you end your trial and activate a Timely account.
