When Nadine Bastien Smellie of Aphrodite’s Sanctuary in Toronto joined Worldwide Salon Marketing in 2010, she was renting a chair in somebody else’s salon. How things have changed; in this review posted on TrueLocal, Nadine tells the story of how she went from being a chair renter to owning her own salon, with two full-time staff…
“I have been with WSM since 2010. I have to admit it was very overwhelming at first, there was so much to read and to do.
I took my time and looked through the books and cds and thought to myself, this is silly, how can this possibly work?…. Well, boy was I wrong, I tried the lost client letters first, I sent out about 100 of them, and I got 30 clients back from the first letter.
Then I started trying the other things like the vouchers and the promotions and the re-booking and Queen of Referrals. I went from being a chair renter to now having my own salon with 2 full time stylists and a chair renter of my own.
I have worked to grow my business WITH the help of WSM, I would never be where I am without them. If you are thinking “I can’t afford it”, stop that thought in its tracks. I definitely couldn’t afford it when I started but I tried it anyways, and it works.
Please don’t sign up and not make an effort with the tools they give you, you actually need to do the work EXACTLY as they say to do it or IT WONT WORK.
I came from nothing and now, thanks to WSM I have a successful salon. Read the books and emails, listen to the cds, implement the procedures into your salons, IT WORKS.”
