Worldwide Salon Marketing NZ Sponsors Marketing Excellence Award, NZ Beauty Awards 2013

It is with great excitement and pleasure that I announce Worldwide Salon Marketing NZ will be a principle sponsor of the NZ Beauty Awards on July 6 and more specifically of the newly created ‘Marketing Excellence’ Award. The Awards will be held at the Pullman Hotel & Resort, Auckland.

We believe that this new marketing award is a great addition to the current set of awards and brings focus to the importance of the business and marketing aspect in our industry, which is just as important as the service and technical side.

We love to support our industry and we very much view the Beauty Industry (both hair & beauty) as the ‘People’s Industry’.  Helping our salons become stronger, in turn makes our communities become stronger – after-all, a salon is a place where people go to feel better about themselves and become part of a community.

The Marketing Excellence Award will be judged by an independent panel and is open to every Clinic, Spa, Day Spa, Resort Spa, Medi Spa and Salon in New Zealand (regardless of size, location or the number of staff) operating for two years or more with a fully qualified professional Therapist/s.

The winner of the Marketing Excellence Award will win a marketing package with a value of over $5,500  – more details to be announced in the next few weeks!

Worldwide Salon Marketing NZ will also be at the NZ Beauty Expo & Business Summit, being held the same weekend as the awards.  We’d love to see you there!

Best of Luck

If I ever needed to provide evidence that the Inner Circle system works, regardless of the size of your town or the area your salon is in then Nikki Smith and Phil Newman of NV Hair in Wanaka, New Zealand are living and breathing proof!

Nikki Smith and Phil Newman of NV Hair, Wanaka, NZ

Nikki and Phil joined the program in July this year and have seen their takings sky rocket since then.  For those of you unfamiliar with Wanaka, it’s in a fairly remote location in the South Island and has a population of around 7,000 (which grows a bit depending on the season).

Nikki and Phil actually took over an existing premises in Wanaka and it’s fair to say that prior to them taking over, the business was on a downward slide, with few customers and the clients that did come in, simply paid whatever they wanted to pay.  It’s VERY hard to run a business like that!

But Nikki and Phil are a ‘no-nonsense’ team and knew what they had to do to turn things around…FAST.  As soon as they joined the Inner Circle program and got their very own copy of the Essential Salon Owner’s Marketing Toolkit® they took massive action.

“Hi Chris

We did the Hollywood promotion last month and here are our results…

We printed 2000 mailbox flyers at a cost of $110, and purchased 2000 envelopes at a cost of $230 (and we’ve now found them even cheaper).

We also ran 2 adverts in the local newspaper for $188 (we now do trade on service with advertiser so costs less, sometimes nothing depending on advert and time scale)

Our total number of bookings was 34 and out of the 34 only 3 paid the minimum $99.  The average client spend was $130 (this was from up-grades and product sales).

The script for selling product and the method in the ‘Selling Like Crazy’ manual works a dream. I now have only 4 bottles of treatment on my shelf and my supplier loves me…

Thanks Chris this is definitely proof that the system works anywhere. The salon was on its knees when I took over and now, well I’m that busy I now need staff….lol.”

So let’s break these results down a bit more…

All up for the printing, envelopes and newspaper ads the cost was $528 (*You can get plain envelopes from the Warehouse Stationary for around $20 for 500…so this would have saved Nikki even more money).

3 packages were sold at $99 = $297

31 packages were sold with an average spend of $130 = $4030

So that’s a total income generated of $4327 for a cost of $528.  A return of investment of $8 for every $1 spent…WOW!

If each of these clients were to spend on average $130 with Nikki and Phil every month for the next year, they would be worth over $1500 to the salon each.  So potentially they have just increased the salons turnover over the next 12 months by $51,000….and that’s just from one promotion!

It’s pretty amazing considering that the salon was turning over a mere $2K a month before they took over.

Well done Nikki and Phil, keep up the good work!
