If you are in the beauty industry, by now you have surely heard of a salon suite rental. Perhaps you have considered finally going into business on your own. Perhaps you are very tired of sharing profits, from your hard work, with a beauty salon owner, and you would like to go it alone . . . but you are nervous, and you just don’t know enough about it to finally give notice at that beauty shop and open your own mini business.
Hopefully, this article will give you the information you need to finally make that decision. We are Salon & Spa Galleria, serving the Greater Fort Worth area with twelve salon suite rental locations. Call us at 972-691-7300 and arrange for a tour of one of our locations.
Now, let’s tell you how you can be a success running your own business from a salon booth rental.
Have a long, heart-to-heart talk with yourself
This is an ultra-important first step. You need to look in the mirror and determine whether you have what it takes to run your own business. Are you a self-starter? Are you a hard-worker? Do you have a core list of customers who will follow you to a new location? Are you prone to quitting when the going gets tough, or do you work through the hard times?
Starting your own business is scary. There is no safety net. There is no boss to make the tough decisions. The buck stops with you, period, end of story.
Do you have what it takes?
Find the best deal possible for a salon suite rental
Not all salon suite rental locations are the same. They vary in price ($100-$400 per week rental fee), but they also vary in the number of amenities they will give you, included in that rental price. For instance, Salon & Spa Galleria has, what we believe to be, the best amenity package in Fort Worth. Utilities and WiFi are included in the rental fee. So is your own web page on our web site. So are laundry services and a big screen television. We offer 24/7 access and ample parking. We offer marketing and business workshops. We do everything we can to help you succeed, and you should expect a similar package in your city.
Our recommendation is to start manageable. You can always expand into a larger salon suite once business warrants it. There are salon chair rentals, salon booth rentals, and salon suite rentals, based on the size of the rental, and we strongly recommend, to ease your nerves, that you start with a small unit at a low price.
Learn all about marketing and business, and then learn more, and more, and . . .
As mentioned earlier, at Salon & Spa Galleria, we offer free marketing and business workshops. We want you to succeed. It is imperative that you learn as much as possible about how to successfully run a business, so put in the time and learn, learn, and learn more.
Work hard, work long, build a reliable business with great services
Never underestimate the power of work-of-mouth advertising. Give people a great product/service, and they will tell others. The first year is crucial for anyone going into business, so that first year you should plan on working more hours and working harder than your competition. Work like your professional career depends upon it because, well, it does.
