Message from the CEO

S

o I am roaming around my local drugstore seeing what’s new and interesting when I come across the magazine aisle. The aisle is about as long as an airport runway and must have at least 500 different magazines if not more.

I see the women’s weekly section, women’s monthly section, cooking, travel, sports, fitness, hobby and on and on and on. Then I am thinking to myself, each of these titles is replaced weekly or monthly. And then I’m thinking who reads all these? I then turn my thoughts to the magazines that people subscribe to and have sent to their homes and businesses. I know that we receive at least 10 different ones and figured that, more than likely, that’s a number smaller than most. (I Googled this and found out that the average is 3.59 per household – so it turns out we are well above that.) However, of the 3.59 subscriptions received at home, how many of those are actually read? I mean, who really has time to read magazines anymore? All of this got me thinking about our own magazine that you are now reading (or perhaps not reading and I am writing this article to ghost readers). We spend hours and hours preparing each issue, and it is exclusive to our Nailco REWARDS customers. But just because we mail the magazine to you doesn’t mean you read it or read what I am writing.

Larry Gaynor

What I am thinking is that I could most likely not write this feature and even have one of our customers write this feature for me. What I would like best is to find out from you, our loyal customers, what you like best about this magazine, if you like my letters and if you would like to write an editorial piece in this space.

Please let me know your thoughts – and I may even send you back a special gift for your thoughts (it’s the least I can do). Since I have done away with my Twitter account, please email me at lgaynor@tngworldwide.com. Thank you so much.

s we pass the five-year anniversary of the start of the economic recession in December 2007, many observers focus on what was lost – such as jobs, businesses or earnings.

But the businesses that survived the Great Recession and are thriving today didn’t focus on losses then – and they aren’t now, says financial expert Donna Every. “The entrepreneurs who are successful during times of uncertainty are so because they don’t rely on the standard approaches they’d use in predictable times, and they look for opportunities – the positives – in situations that would have been considered negatives five years ago,” Every says.

16

THE INDUSTRY SOURCE

March/April 2013

“It’s similar to how we deal with the weather. In places where it’s sunny most of the summer, we wouldn’t leave our house each morning packing coats and umbrellas just in case. The weather’s predictable. But in the winter and other seasons when the weather can quickly change, we head out with a different mindset.” For businesses, switching gears to deal with inclement economic conditions involves adopting new perspectives and practices, she says.


What are some of those strategies?

• Build on what you have, not toward what you want Instead of setting goals and then seeking out the resources you’ll need to meet them, assess what you have available and decide what you can achieve with that. This not only saves you the time and expense of pulling together resources you may not have, but it also gives you the advantage of working from your business’ individual and unique strengths.

• Follow the Las Vegas rule Tourists planning a weekend in Las Vegas will often set aside the amount of money they’re willing to gamble – and lose – on cards or the slots. That way, they won’t lose more than they can afford. During an uncertain economy, entrepreneurs should calculate their risks the same way. Rather than going for the biggest opportunities as you would in prosperous times, look for the opportunities that won’t require as much of your resources. Calculate how much you can afford to lose, and always consider the worst-case scenario.

• Join hands and hearts Competition is fine when things are going well, but when times are tough, you need allies. Explore forming partnerships with other entrepreneurs so you can strategize to create opportunities together. With what your partners bring to the table, you’ll have more strength and new options to work with.

• Capitalize on the unexpected Surprises can have positive outcomes if you handle them nimbly by finding ways to use them to your advantage. Instead of planning damage control for the next unexpected contingency, look at it as an opportunity. Get creative as you look for the positives it presents.

• When life is unpredictable, don’t try to forecast Focus on what you can do and create now rather than what you can expect based on what happened in the past. In good times, that information can be a helpful and reliable way to make predictions, but savvy entrepreneurs don’t count on that in uncertain times. “While the U.S. economy certainly is improving, there’s still too much uncertainty both here and abroad to go back to the old ways of doing business just yet,” Every says. “If you’ve survived the past five years, you’ve probably been relying on many of these strategies – maybe without even realizing it,” she says. “Don’t abandon them yet, and if there are some here you aren’t using, work toward incorporating them, too.”s WRITTEN BY DONNA EVERY ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Donna Every is director of Arise Consulting Inc., a company that offers business training and consulting services.

FRESH FACED

A Cluttered Workspace is a

CLUTTERED MIND I f you’re looking for a fresh start this spring and some extra kick in your step, there’s no better place to look than right in front of you – your workspace.

The adage that a cluttered workspace equals a cluttered mind has quite a bit of truth to it. For one thing, how can you be organized and feel like you are managing your career to the best of your ability if you are scattered and constantly looking for and misplacing things? And not only that, but a cluttered workspace indicates to clients that you are disorganized, scattered or perhaps even that you simply don’t value your job enough to take pride in keeping your workspace clean – or even worse, that you don’t value them enough to ensure that you are putting your best foot forward for them in the form of a clean and tidy environment.

18

THE INDUSTRY SOURCE

March/April 2013

On top of all this, a cluttered workspace could actually be robbing you of your most valuable asset – your time. Making sure you have the time to devote to your goals is the role of time management. We all have the same amount of time. We can only control how we use it. Why use it shuffling papers or searching for missing items?

A cluttered workspace could actually be robbing you of your most valuable asset – your time.


Most people say they don’t have enough time. Perhaps part of this is due to the fact that their environment is running your day for them. Organizing your environment is just the first step in deliberately planning your day, rather than allowing it to unfold however it chooses to.

You’ll be surprised at just how much managing your space effectively will do for you in terms of your business and energy level.

So, perhaps you realize that you could benefit from a fresh start in your workspace that will enable you to get the things done that will most impact your business. If so, it’s time to take action. First outfit your work area so you have all the necessary tools to complete your activities. If there are things you constantly find yourself in search of, make it a point to round them all up and find a home for them in your workspace. Next, clean your area of clutter. Trash or file all papers – and make a conscious effort not to let them start piling up again.

Remember, if you set one piece of paper down, it is bound to attract a friend – then eventually many friends, and you’ll be back where you started. However, keeping up your workspace requires maintenance. Plan so that your final activity at the end of each workday is to straighten up your area so you and the area are fresh in the morning with no residue from the day before. If every once in awhile you find yourself slipping back into old habits, don’t think you failed. It’s like learning to ride a bicycle. When you fall off, simply climb back on and practice some more. You’ll be surprised at just how much managing your space effectively will do for you in terms of your business and energy level. You’ll be more productive, less stress prone, have a better balance between your business life and your personal life and you’ll find that you are working on your desired outcomes and accomplishing them. You will gain more time and, more importantly, the life you truly want and deserve. s WRITTEN BY KATHLEEN O’BRIEN ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Since starting Business Support Center in the Women’s Business Center in 1993 as a virtual assistance company, O’Brien has talked to thousands of business owners.

Most women don’t think twice about the hair habits they’ve had for years and years, says longtime hair-care advocate and health scientist Audrey Davis-Sivasothy.

• Hair OCD (excessive combing, brushing & heat use)

“Lackluster, frazzled, overworked hair – that’s the price we pay for handling our hair like a pair of jeans. Hair is a fragile fiber that

As hairdressers know too well, substances of choice include: • Toxic chemicals (perms, relaxers & colors)

• Environmental lifestyle (too much exposure to sun, surf, bad air and water) • Nutritional/dietary (fad diets, smoking, low water consumption)


As with a drug addiction, once you’ve kicked the habit, you’ll liberate the bad hair, unlocking new dimensions of hair potential, says Davis-Sivasothy, who has also authored the popular “The Science of Black Hair.” However, often clients may not know where to start when it comes to giving their hair some TLC. Davis-Sivasothy recommends laying out the following five-step rehab plan for clients with damaged hair:

1. Chelating your hair: Products containing oils, conditioners, serums and pomades (or minerals), which make you feel better in the short term, can build up and actually prevent the hair’s ability to hydrate. That’s why the first step in detoxing hair is the use of chelating shampoo, which is typically clear and lifts stubborn buildup from products and hard water. While many chelating shampoos are sulfate-based, there are more sulfate-free products entering the market to accommodate sensitive scalps and hair. Clarifying shampoos are a good substitute when chelating shampoos cannot be found. Moisturizing shampoo should be used for general use after detoxing.

2. Deep condition After chelating, deep condition for 10 to 15 minutes. This should be done every seven to 10 days using moisturizing conditioners such as instant and cream-rinse, deep conditioners, protein treatments or leave-in conditioners. To go the extra mile, consider an apple cider vinegar rinse to close the cuticle and enhance your hair’s shine.

3. Moisturize This step adds a layer of leave-on protection. Clients can use either leave-in conditioner or a dedicated moisturizing product or both. For thick, dry or curly hair, this step hydrates and adds “slip.” For fine or oily hair, these products should detangle strands while encouraging volume.

4. Seal This is the last major step in your hair intervention. Sealing with an oil or butter product locks in moisture and solidifies the gains of rehab. It smoothes out the cuticle and keeps hair moisturized for a longer period. Always use sealant on slightly dampened or misted hair or pair the product with a water-based moisturizer to maximize the

benefits. If you have naturally oily hair, you can skip this step.

5. Style protectively Imagine wearing a favorite sweater every day; washing, drying and ironing it several times a week – it would look pretty worn out after a few years! This is exactly what happens to hair that is bleached, colored, blown dry with artificial heat, ironed, weaved and on and on. Don’t do this anymore! There are several measures you can take to preserve the health of your hair, including wearing it up more often, cleansing it cautiously, detangling strands with a large-tooth comb, protectively using blow-dryer heat, reducing chemical use and not coloring hair more than three shades lighter or darker than its natural color. In general, be gentle. Do not pull to hard or rapidly when styling it, too – be slow and steady. s WRITTEN BY AUDREY DAVIS-SIVASOTHY ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Audrey Davis-Sivasothy is a Houston-based freelance writer, publisher and longtime healthy hair care advocate and enthusiast.

Nobody can do it all, all of the time – and it’s even harder when you’re trying to also focus on success in your career.

According to Todd Patkin, the problem is that you set yourself up for disappointment by having unrealistic and unsustainable expectations. Instead, he says, you’ll be best served by making 2013 the year you stop doing things that aren’t adding to your happiness. “Let’s face it – our lives are already packed full of responsibilities. Piling on even more just isn’t feasible – and it’s also a recipe for unhappiness,” points out Patkin. “Instead, you should focus on prioritizing the things in your life that really matter, and on dropping dead weight that might be holding you back.” Patkin admits that “quitting” various success-oriented behaviors and habits seems counterintuitive. After all, doing less goes directly against society’s recipe for building our best and most fulfilling lives. But Patkin says more isn’t always better. According to Patkin, here are some things that you should resolve to stop doing now if you want 2013 to be your greatest year yet:

Give up on toxic relationships. The ones that aren’t working, that is. Face it – whether it’s a coworker who hands out backhanded compliments like they’re candy or a “frenemy” who always tries to one-up your accomplishments, there are people in your life who drain your energy and make your attitude dip into murky territory. No matter how much you may want to make these relationships work, forcing yourself to spend time with negative people won’t do you any favors. Actually, Patkin says, studies show that in terms of your attitude and happiness levels, you will be the average of the five people you spend the most time with.

Stop being so nice. And start being real. Perhaps you’re one of those people who always blurts out what’s on your mind. If so, skip this piece of advice. However, it’s much more likely that you swallow barbed comments or constructive criticism in favor of a more diplomatic response. You might even allow yourself to be taken advantage of from time to time in order to please another person. Guess what: It’s time to stop! Dishonest politeness doesn’t develop authentic relationships. “No, it’s not appropriate to go on reality show-worthy rants whenever you feel upset, but at the same time, masking your real opinions and feelings isn’t helpful in the long term,” Patkin says. “Remember, having a smaller number of true friends is healthier than denying your own happiness in order to make everyone else like you. And usually, there is a polite way to say no or to let another person know he or she is out of line without permanently burning bridges.”

Ignore the Joneses. Keeping up with the Joneses seems to be the American way of life. We’re constantly comparing ourselves to our friends, our neighbors, our coworkers and even people

whose lives we see displayed on reality TV. No matter what the situation is, thoughts like these only leave you feeling jealous, less-than and unhappy. You need to understand the fundamental truth that “happy” for you won’t look the same as it does for anyone else – and that’s okay! Focus primarily on your own feelings and fulfillment – don’t use another person’s life as a measuring stick to determine how good your own is.”

Stop giving so much. If you don’t, you’ll eventually run dry! The fact is, there are a lot of people in our lives who depend on us and who want our help, our time, our advice, etc. Especially if you care for those individuals, of course you’ll want to be accommodating. (Or perhaps you just have a hard time saying no!) For whatever reason, it can be all too easy to keep giving and giving and giving to others to the point where there’s nothing left for you. “If you are that person – if spending all of your time and energy on others is the norm and doing something for yourself is extremely rare – watch it,” Patkin warns. “Figure out what is important to you and what fulfills you, and prioritize those things more. Stop putting others and their needs first all the time! In order to be happy, you have to know what your strengths are, and you have to play to them on a regular basis. You can’t live your life primarily to please other people.” “Believe me, being a “quitter” can be a very smart move, as long as you’re leaving behind activities, habits, people and responsibilities that aren’t enriching your life,” Patkin concludes. “Above all else, as you move through this year, take it from me that a successful life without happiness really isn’t successful at all!” s WRITTEN BY TODD PATKIN ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Available at: T HE INDUST RY Todd Patkin joined the family business after graduating from college and spent the next 18 years helping to grow it to new heights.

How to

START A

BUSINESS

from Scratch

E

ntrepreneurship is like embarking on a journey – it is not a destination. No successful business was created overnight; they all went through a process. However, not all who begin the process of starting a business will end it. Unfortunately, this is the harsh reality. So how do you create a business from scratch and succeed?

1. Make up your mind to become an entrepreneur The process of creating a business usually begins with a decision or a pattern of thinking. Before deciding on a business to start, you must

first have a strong reason for wanting to start a business. Have you ever had any of these thoughts: “Why can’t I be my own boss?” “I am tired of this 9-5 job.” “I work so hard but I don’t receive any recognition.” “Why am I working for my boss when I can go out on my own?” “I am gifted, why can’t I make money with my gift?” The moment you start to think over these questions, you have unconsciously begun the process of creating a business. And once you decide to give your idea a go and once you decide to follow your instinct, you have taken a bold step. (continues on page 28)

2. Write a business plan

5. Keep the business going

Once you have made up your mind to become an entrepreneur, the next step is to write a business plan around your idea. In this stage, I will advise that you take the time to fantasize, scheme and plot. Envision yourself being in control. Analyze the possibilities of your business idea and note your strengths, weaknesses, oppositions and threats. Most self proclaimed experts that teach people how to start a business are of the opinion that you don’t need a business plan to start a business except when you are raising money from investors or applying for a loan. But having a plan is important. If you don’t know where you’re going, how will you know when you get there?

Launching a business is just the starting point of the game. Keeping your business afloat is the real test. This is the point where you do all it takes to stay in business. To create a really successful business, you will need to effectively deal with competition, find customers, manage critical business problems, pay recurrent bills and handle employees. This is the point where the pressure of managing a business gets worst.

3. Get the necessary education and experience In the process of making initial preparations to launch your business, you are sure to make mistakes. At this stage, you will start to see reasons why creating a business is not for you. Your mind will begin to see reasons why having a job is important to your survival. You are also bound to face disappointments that will almost make you quit the process. The heartbreaking news is that most entrepreneurs do not go past this stage; their ideas usually die at this point due to loss of enthusiasm. I have observed entrepreneurs with good business plans give up on the process of creating a business just because no one wants to fund their idea. I have come across entrepreneurs that modify their plan year in and year out because they are afraid of failing. That’s why I always insist my protégés start the process of building a business – no matter how small or unprepared he or she is. I encourage them to do this so that they can master the art of making and learning from mistakes. You should do the same for yourself.

4. Create your business

6. Make more mistakes and learn This is the point where many startups go under. This challenge of this period is why 99% of all small business startups crash in their initial five years. At this stage, you are bound to make stupid business decisions that may lead to loss of cash, customers or important employees. This is the stage where you start regretting creating a business. If you are not strong willed, you will forego the vision of building your own business. When you get to this crossroads, what I usually advise is to find fresh answers. Assess yourself to see the essential entrepreneurial skills you are lacking. Attend seminars, read books on business and entrepreneurship and seek the advice of a business mentor or form strategic alliances.

7. Be persistent After finding the answers you need, you now have to apply the answers found on your business. You have to take the bull by the horns and never call it quits. Sticking to the process of creating a successful business is definitely not a piece of cake. It requires effort, patience, resources and commitment. The good news is that if you can stick to the course, your hard work will pay off in time.

8. Create a successful business

At this point, your business may no longer Many entrepreneurs with brilliant ideas need your presence and your absence will and sound business plans never make it to not hinder its growth. This is where you this stage. They plan, scheme and fantasize, commemorate your accomplishment. At but they fail to act on their ideas.

9. Count your wins or losses If you can diligently follow step one to eight of this guide, you will surely come to this point. This is where you ponder the process you went through to build a business: the business problems you encountered and solved, the business ventures you won or lost and the failures you experienced. This is where you tell your tale of success or failure with others, and this where you conclude if the entrepreneurial process was really worth undertaking.

10. Retire or replicate your success This is the final stage of the entrepreneurial process. Less than 20% of all entrepreneurs that began the process get to this phase. At this stage, you are successful and can decide whether to call it a day or repeat the process of creating a business. I have

seen entrepreneurs who begin the game all over again even after creating a successful business. Others will retire but return to start the process again because of the challenges and excitement involved. In conclusion, these are steps it takes to create a business from scratch and are the exact steps I followed to get to where I am today. This process may take a year, two years, five years or 20 years, but it surely has an end. And bear in mind that not all who began this process make it to the end – but, if I can create a business from scratch starting with no money, you can too. Only you can choose your fate. ▲ WRITTEN BY AJAERO TONY MARTINS

S

pring is upon us, which means it’s time for spring cleaning in a variety of areas across your business – one of these being your HR documents and processes. This can be a daunting task and large undertaking for many. However, if you have identified some areas that need to be adjusted or updated, make sure enough time is allotted for the planning, research, development and implementation of those initiatives to allow for the smoothest transition possible. A few areas you may want to freshen up are as follows:

Employee Handbook Review your current Employee Handbook and ensure the included policies are still in line with your business practices and mission, and revise when necessary. It is also a good idea to update existing policies to reflect any federal and/or state employment regulations since your last update. Remove any policies that are no longer applicable, if any. A few key areas to review are paid time off policies, leave of absence policies, non-discrimination policies, anti-harassment policies and attendance policies.

Employee File Review Ensure current addresses are on file for W-2 purposes. File any outstanding paperwork, so you can begin the year fresh. Additionally, you should make sure the information contained in the file is up to date and accurate, such as job title, pay rate, attendance record, etc. You may consider purging employee files that you are no longer required to keep by law. Make sure you know the federal and

applicable state requirements for the length of time files are required to be retained. If it is not your practice to purge files, you may consider putting those files in long term storage.

Training Needs If training needs have been identified, plan out a training schedule for the year. Schedule trainings required by your industry, licensing requirements or state and/or local governments. If training needs have not been identified, work with staff and managers to determine what trainings will be of benefit to the employees and organization as a whole. Develop a plan and establish a budget to address those identified needs.

Staffing Needs Many employers have the unfortunate circumstance of having to lay off employees or having to implement cost saving measures in regards to staffing such as reducing work hours. Now is the time to look at the current state of your business and determine if those staffing decisions are still applicable. If you have open positions to fill, consider calling employees that were previously laid off. ▲ WRITTEN BY MICHELE O DONNEL ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Michele O Donnell, M.S.

even contempt.

There are numerous rites of passage we are supposed to and are required to participate in. We hedge where we can and otherwise meet our requirements with frowns and sighs, frustration and sometimes

One of the rituals we have a tendency to hedge on is the requirement to hold companywide end-of-year reviews and planning meetings, which is extremely unfortunate because they could be the most valuable management tools we will ever use. There are two primary reasons for hedging on these types of meetings. The first is no one ever knows what to do at these occasions. The second reason is the money.

But really, the agenda is simple. First, review your business plan to determine if your business is still on track or if changes should be made. Next, review your policies to determine if they are still applicable or if they need to be updated. The third item on the agenda should be reviews. Here you will learn whether your employees are on-point and what the accomplishments, failings and goals are for the coming year. These board meetings are important because they keep lines of communication open and everyone on track. Day-to-day mundane activities have a way of clouding the big picture, which is the overall mission of the business. It is during meetings like these that you can determine if the mission and goals of your organization are being met, if set mission and goals are realistic and what can be done to further your business’ success.

FRESH FACED These companywide meetings are equally important because they give management an opportunity to reinforce company goals and vision and to clean house if there are any employees that aren’t on board with the company’s direction. However, cleaning house doesn’t just mean eliminating nonproductive personnel. It also means replacing equipment that is broken down and hindering your progress and reevaluating specifics like your customer service effectiveness – and, if you find that you have not been effective as a company, determining how to remedy the issue moving forward. Identify customers who have been particularly demanding. Get to the root of the problem so that you can reduce any negative cost impact.

BAMBOO INFUSED

Nail Lacquer

Bamboo is a fast growing and sustainable grass originally from the hill forests of India that has been harvested for generations for its healing and strengthening properties. Tabasheer, a compound secreted from bamboo, has been used in Indian phytotherapy for its remineralizing properties in the treatment of arthritis, osteoporosis and for strengthening hair and nails. The SpaRitual Meditate Collection contains Bamboo “silk” that is sustainably gathered from India and islands of the Pacific Ocean. According to university studies, getting nails wet and dry over a period of time can cause nails to become brittle and thin. Bamboo “silk” absorbs water and oil, preventing liquids from penetrating nails and helping to reduce thinning and brittleness while increasing nail strength and thickness up to 35 percent.

Guerlain Spa, New York focuses on luxury, exclusivity and personalization.

L

ocated 19 floors above the historic Waldorf-Astoria grand lobby, Guerlain Spa at Waldorf Towers in New York offers a serene, French-inspired oasis that provides an unrivaled luxurious and personalized spa experience.

Designed by architectural firm AC Martin together with Guerlain, the space is inspired by Waldorf-Astoria’s Art Deco design. Diamonte tile flanks the main entryway, where an illuminated Baccarat crystal feature evokes a calming, elegant aura throughout the expansive spa. The 14,000 square-foot space features 14 treatment suites, a nail salon, fitness center and Grand Salon relaxation venue. The spa’s customized treatment suites deliver an unsurpassed guest experience. Each is fitted with a private bathing lounge, signature Guerlain amenities, personalized music selections and treatments that refresh and refine guests from the inside out. Aside from the design, one of the biggest changes since the spa’s redesign and opening as Guerlain Spa in August of 2011 is the spa’s service platform.

“This is the same service platform and experience that the original Guerlain spa offers that focuses on luxury, exclusivity and personalization of services. Extra time is built into every service so guests have time to use all amenities, such as our rain shower, face wash and other products. We also offer a complimentary shoe shine, makeup refresher, garment steaming and access to fitness facilities with every service,” says Rachel Klein, Manager of Business Development at Guerlain Spa at Waldorf Towers. Klein says that some of the spa’s specialties are their 80 minute Complete Facial and Waldorf Signature 80 Minute Massage. “Our 80 minute services are where we really shine,” she says. “For body treatments, we have some new ones coming out. We will have a new menu by March that will include some of our new features like hot towel therapy and a signature soak using our hydrotherapy room,” which she describes as a 25 minute water massage in a private hydrotherapy room with a simultaneous hair and scalp massage. “Where we stand out at the end of the day are the amenities that guests get with their service,” she says. “We are competitively priced

A NEW LOOK and A NEW PRODUCT for black 15in1

here have been some exciting changes for black 15in1 recently in the form of a new product (Miracle Finishing Hair Spray) that is getting rave reviews and updated, ergonomically designed and sleek packaging (but those who love the black 15in1 line need not worry – the miracleworking formulas haven’t changed).

T

a salon, the first thing they do is spray the stain with hair spray. The reason for that is because most hair sprays pull color out. However, our Miracle Finishing Hair Spray actually helps protect hair color, provides UVA/UVB protection, is humidity-proof, can be used in wet or dry hair and gives long lasting, brilliant shine and maximum hold that leaves hair soft to the touch.

Tell me about the recent changes in black 15in1’s packaging.

What kind of reception has the Miracle Finishing Hair Spray gotten?

We made changes to the black 15in1 packaging to reflect what we’re all about – Hair Care Simplified. The new packaging is clean, simple and communicates our message in a more appropriate way. As we’ve evolved, we’ve had time to listen to our customers as to what works and what doesn’t. The “twice a week” on the previous Miracle Shampoo and Miracle Conditioner bottles was confusing to some customers. black 15in1 is gentle enough to use every day but also cleansing enough for those who only shampoo once or twice a week. The bottom line is it’s for everyone, and now the packaging reflects that. We also changed the material the bottles were made from and the caps, making them all more user friendly. We work in a very visual industry, so not only does the new black 15in1 packaging communicate and function better, but it also makes for a great retail presentation in the salon!

The reaction to Miracle Finishing Hair Spray has been phenomenal! Many customers feel that this is the first hair spray they’ve used in years that actually works. Most hair sprays that have come on the market in the last 10 years or so just don’t do that much. Customers feel that they have to keep using them over and over throughout the day. Those who have used the product have told us that once they use Miracle Finishing Hair Spray, it gives a great hold with maximum shine and they don’t need to keep re-applying it. Our customers with curly or naturally frizzy hair are always trying to fight humidity, so they are thrilled to have a product available that’s designed for that. We’re also hearing from men that they especially love to use the Miracle Finishing Hair Spray in their hair when it is wet right before they run out the door. Their hair dries in place and, once dry, they can run their hands through it while still maintaining their style.

Why did you decide to create black 15in1 Miracle Finishing Hair Spray?

2013 is an exciting time at black 15in1. We’ve been able to evolve into a complete system for the stylist and consumer while still keeping it simple by providing products that deliver multiple benefits. Having started with our signature product, Miracle Hair Treatment, which has been clinically tested to deliver 15 proven results (hence the name), we have now grown into a complete brand that in all ways is about Hair Care Simplified. s

black 15in1 Miracle Finishing Hair Spray was created to build upon our already successful brand and to offer a styling/finishing product to our range of products. For stylists who loved the results they were already getting with black 15in1, it didn’t make sense that they not be able to complete their work with a styling/finishing product that provided the same great benefits as our Miracle Hair Treatment. Therefore, we took the time to develop a hair spray that contains the same great ingredients. When a stylist gets color on their clothes in

How to

SUCCESSFULLY BUILD Customer Loyalty

I

n today’s competitive marketplace, the race to increase profits by cultivating customer loyalty is going at full speed. Customer retention is not only a cost-effective and profitable strategy, it is a necessity for businesses wanting to stay ahead of the pack.

As consumers are spending less thanks to soaring fuel and food costs, companies are more reliant than ever on the loyalty of a dedicated customer base to maintain a competitive advantage. Following the Pareto Principle, 80% of your sales come from 20% of your customers, and, in a recession, the numbers are closer to 95% and 5%, says Ajit Maira, senior vice president of the Information Technology Services Marketing Association. Since these returning customers cost less to reach, are less vulnerable to ploys from the competition and buy more over time, companies need to give customers an incentive not to go elsewhere for the same product or service.

One of the most successful ways to achieve this cost-effective retention is through the use of customer loyalty reward programs. By rewarding the ongoing purchase of product or services, companies achieve long-term relationships with customers. With a variety of loyalty programs available to companies, the key is discovering what works best for your needs and goals.

Build a Strong Foundation Successful loyalty reward programs are built from a working knowledge of your customer base. To create the foundation, you must first identify the type of customers you want to retain and understand the types of products and services they value most. This information can then be used to determine the kinds of rewards programs that will appeal to them. To obtain this level of understanding about your customers, it’s vital to conduct targeted research. In an article in the Harvard Business


Review, authors Thomas O. Jones and W. Earl Sasser, Jr., suggest utilizing a combination of customer satisfaction surveys, customer feedback and market research. Together, these three tools can help businesses better grasp the wants and needs of the customer to build stronger brand loyalty.

Establish Winning Relationships While good service is the key to earning customers, it’s not enough to maintain their long-term loyalty. In his book, How to Win Customers & Keep Them for Life, author Michael LeBoeuf states, “Smart companies go the extra mile for the customer and show them just how dedicated they are to making sure that they feel good about doing business with them.” To prove to your customers that your company is going that extra mile, you must show them you are doing just that on a regular basis. It’s also vital to maintain open lines of communication and always treat customers with courtesy. Loyalty is established over time, and customers need to believe that your company values them.

Give Them Incentives Giving customers incentives to let their purchases be tracked allows you to base loyalty programs on very specific requests and needs. The incentives can help your business to increase customer traffic and sales and, most importantly, allow you to measure the effectiveness of the incentive.

The incentives can vary and can include immediate rewards like a free product or service, targeted deals such as exclusive “friends and

family” sales events and valuable membership cards offering extras like bonus spending points. Other options are also successful, like manufacturer rewards or discounts on particular items such as brand merchandise or services. Offering these loyalty incentives, also known as frequency marketing, allows your business to build a database of loyal customers that you can target again and again and with precise tracking.

Follow Through To reap the rewards of a customer loyalty program, it is vital to maintain a consistent approach and follow through with your strategy. By staying the course with targeted research, communication and incentives, you can establish a loyal customer base yielding great results. It’s important to remember that customer loyalty can’t be established overnight, but the investment required to create a satisfied customer is always worth the effort. Establishing long-lasting, loyal relationships with clients should not be an afterthought in the current market – it’s now a fundamental necessity on the road to achieving higher profits and business longevity. ▲ WRITTEN BY R.L.

Ask the

INDUST RY Salon and Spa owners and managers have the answers to help you become more profitable and successful.

We asked our readers what they are doing this year to freshen up their services or business practices, and this is what they had to say!

“We moved into a slightly smaller yet much more efficient space. We plan on opening walls (that had previously sealed windows) to let natural light in. We were able to build a private room for facials and are introducing body treatments as well as massage.” David Yerks, David Andrew Salon – Palm Springs, CA

“For 2013, I have developed a series of free or low cost workshops that are available to clients or the public to help educate them on the products I use and the services I provide.”

“I’m sharing and using weather appropriate top coats and lotions, offering flavored coffees and teas, guaranteeing in and out service. As the weather changes (I’m in Michigan), I change top coats – in the fall/winter months, I use one that has a high shine and I’m not quite as focused on using a quick dry top coat. Polish dries faster in a colder environment, and, because in the winter months we tend to lotion up more, I don’t want their nails to look dull. In the warmer months, clients are on the go and require a quick dry so that they don’t smudge their nails.” Monique Roberts-Dancy Nail Sweetz Too Southfield, MI

“I am being more available to my clients with expanded business hours.” Ron Nomura Healing Solutions Therapy South Lyon, MI

“We take before and after photos of our work. With social media at an all time high, it is important to feature our clients as walking advertisements, and we share our work on Facebook and Twitter. We also freshen up our inventory each January by having product sales. This clears shelves to be ready for new product launches, which always happen in February/March.” Chalaine Archer Ultimate Experience Salon Gouverneur, NY


“This year we are going to freshen up our spa services by adding exclusive organic, gluten free and vegan only options to our menu. While we are already a green beauty company, clients that have allergies or lead a specific lifestyle would benefit from these types of services that are customized to fit their needs. No guessing or worrying what is in the products for their services – we’ve done that research for them!” Jenny Perillo Head 2 Toe Mobile Spa Chicago, IL

“We will be partnering with local bed and breakfasts to offer new and exciting destination spa and bridal packages. Incorporating our new café, The Green Room – which we just added on, all our spa packages will now include a light entrée or treat served with a complimentary glass of bubbly. When hosting spa parties, we can take it to another level when our new outdoor garden patio, overlooking a beautiful golf course, is completed in spring 2013!” Mary Rose Cannistraro On the Green Salon and Day Spa Saint Mary’s, GA

“I’m planning on bringing out my hot oil machine to do hot oil manicures and add some of that moisture back to the hands and nails and finish it with a paraffin dip.” Brenda Roman Perfect 10 Nails & Hair Westlake, OH

CONNECT customer satisfaction levels may appear to be, “satisfying customers without creating an emotional connection with them has no real value. None at all.” But when Gallup looked at customers who credited emotional connection as part of their deep satisfaction and loyalty to a store, they also found that those customers visited that business more often and spent more. Let’s look at four things you can do today to improve the way your connect emotionally with people...

Sharpen your listening skills There’s no better way to understand the needs of your customers than by listening carefully to what they have to say. As a professional, learn to be less preoccupied with the need to force your opinion on others. Instead, make it your job to listen to their opinions and feelings, ask questions and then find tailor-made solutions to fit those opinions and feelings.

Tell stories Human beings are hard-wired to be receptive to the power of compelling stories. As one writer recently quipped to me: storytelling is a lens through which we can catch a glimpse of the lives of others as well as mirror of our own. When you share with your customers your own stories of challenges you’ve encountered in business – even mistakes you might have made in the past – it humanizes who you are. It helps remind others that you’re not all that different in terms of your aspirations and goals as well as in terms of what you worry about.

Be thankful

Connecting with

CUSTOMERS

I

t’s no secret that lasting success in sales, no matter what kind of market you’re working in, relies on building and maintaining long-term business relationships with your clients. Indeed, most of us get plenty of advice on activities we can do to help make that happen – from follow-up calls to thank you notes. As a sales trainer, I’ve noticed that what’s often missing from that advice is recognition of what needs to come first – connecting emotionally with people. Without an emotional connection, no amount of hard work will help boost your sales performance and no amount of ambition will get you to where you want to be in your organization. Consider the compelling results of market research on the subject. A 2003 Gallup study suggests that no matter how high a company’s

THE INDUSTRY SOURCE

March/April 2013

Whether it’s people in your personal or professional life, you can never say thank you enough. People love it when they are recognized, appreciated and made to feel special. So take every opportunity you can to demonstrate how thankful you are by way of thank you cards, modest gifts, treating a customer to lunch – your choices are endless. What’s most important is that your gesture demonstrates how much you value that person and not their money.

Be thoughtful Being thoughtful is where your creativity and attention to detail can help you really stand out. That goes a long way in an effort to connect emotionally with others. I was once told a great story about a top salesperson that was asked what set him apart from everyone else in his business. “I genuinely love people and I like showing how much I appreciate them,” he explained. “There are plenty who remember to send out a birthday card to a friend or client, but I’ll bet I’m the only one who thinks to also send out a birthday card to that person’s beloved dog!” s WRITTEN BY COLLEEN FRANCIS ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Colleen Francis, Sales Expert, is Founder and President of Engage Selling Solutions (www.

MARKET SMART with Email Campaigns

t seems that everyone today is running an email marketing campaign – as they should be, seeing as it is a great way to engage customers. However, there are best practices when it comes to email marketing. All email campaigns are not equal. It is important that your messages truly represent your product and service while catching the attention of your recipient. However, this is actually much harder than it may seem and is not a task to be taken lightly.

Engage your base

Here are some proven strategies that are important to keep in mind when designing an email campaign that is relevant to your consumers and makes it easy for them to do what you want them to do most – buy! Whether your shoppers are newcomers or longtime customers, these techniques will make it easier to convert a greater portion of their browsing sessions straight into sales.

Social media marketing

Attention grabbing subject lines and headlines Your subject lines and headlines are what attracts someone’s attention to your marketing campaign message. It is their early introduction to your company, giving them an immediate first impression. If you fail to get their attention, you’ve probably lost the sale. So, it is important to create persuasive headlines and engaging subject lines.

Listening to your subscribers is showing them you care and respect their communications and comments. Being attentive to what they are saying will enable you to accurately provide intelligent dialogue and feedback. Taking this a step further, you will also better know what they are looking for and what they consider to be a valuable product or service. Keep an open dialogue. You never know the positive viral conversation that may follow. When you want to establish your presence, there is no greater medium than social media. Social Media heightens your marketing strategies. Plus social media won’t interfere with any other marketing methods you plan to use and often helps to increase your website traffic. And social media complements your brand but makes it easier for customers to engage with you and your company on a more personal level. It is an ideal fit and integral part of all your email marketing campaigns. With the right email campaign software, you can insert a social media button, allowing your subscribers to automatically share and forward your campaigns to their colleagues, family and friends. By doing this, you will now be able to reach an unlimited number of subscribers, way beyond your opt-in lists and leads.

Test and analyze the results According to a recent email metrics survey published by Marketing Sherpa, “Click through rate (92%) is still the top tracked email metric measured by organizations followed closely by open rate (90%) and delivery rate (81%).” Email marketers should strive to gain a better understanding of what happens after the click. It is nice to know that someone clicked on a link in your email, but the real value is understanding if your email campaigns are driving the results you want and if they are allowing you to meet your goals. In order to do this, you have to measure what happens after the click. For instance, did that same customer make an appointment or come in within a week of an email being sent? Did they visit your website? These are the types of results that are most important.

If customers are in the forefront of your mind, you will be on theirs as well.” Market individuals – not ideas It is so easy to forget that we are marketing people. Digital communications tend to make us a bit distant from our subscribers, prospects and customers. Keeping up-todate demographics and behavioral stats will help you focus on the appropriate content and products. Encouraging feedback from your subscribers will give you an accurate temperature of how your campaigns are doing. Individuals are not ideas. Their lives and their needs change constantly. Keep a live and continuing dialogue with all you hope to do business with in the form of your email and social media campaigns, mail campaigns and in-person services. If customers are in the forefront of your mind, you will be on theirs as well. ▲ WRITTEN BY ACTIVE TRAIL TEAM ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Active Trail is a market leader in email deliverability, offering web-based solutions and services for organizations who want to maintain an active relationship with their customers.
