I wanted to make a helpful post describing the items you can get from our store as we have seen a lot of questions around “Which do I buy for X?”. The goal of the post will be to help you understand which purchases can help benefit you professionally depending on your current working scenario. In addition any product questions can be left as comments here which will be helpful for everyone, including those who have already purchased. Please ensure to read through the individual product pages prior to purchase for a more detailed information on the downloadable as well as for system requirements where applicable.
Are you a salon owner with employees on payroll? Are you an aspiring salon owner that wants to determine your budget in advance of making any purchases? Then the Salon Compensation and Pricing Megakit is for you. It allows you to input your anticipated costs, including payroll, and your service protocol times. Once you put that information in, the spreadsheet shows you how your pricing would be impacted. From there, you can make adjustments as necessary to ensure your business profitable. This is invaluable as most salon owners don’t find out that their expenses impact their pricing so significantly that they isolate their target demographic (or your local economy) until after-the-fact.
