Why you as a hairdresser should have a website
As a hairdresser, your business is a competitive niche; there could be hundreds of hairdresser in your area. How can you stand out? How can you get online and local visibility? A hairdresser website is a must for all types of business, as people tend to use internet to search for certain service or product.
As a hairdresser and beauty therapist, you’re in the business making your clients feel self-esteem boost with new hair style and trend ideas. But as you are in a very competitive business category, it is hard for new clients to trust your service without a few samples and reviews.
While other salons have local directory listings, people still reach for the link for the hairdressers website, to have a visual of the services they offer. Most of new customers turn away from a business if they cannot offer a website where clients can visualize their idea for a new trendy hair style.
Also many hair salons rely on social media platforms to promote their business, while social media makes sense, since there are billions online, however out of the billions users on social media, there can only be 10% of those users that could actually use your service, due to location, age group, and more.
While a hair salon website could be your marketing tool as well as your business card, your catalogue and your 24 hour customer service tool where your clients can email or contact your through a contact form.
