How to run your business like a boss

“If only there were 36 hours in a day…”

If this is what you have been wishing for, especially leading up to the festive season, this article might just be able to help you with that. No, we can’t give you an extra 12 hours a day but we can most certainly free up some of your time to allow you to work on your business, instead of working in your business.

The key to running your business like a boss is learn how to be more efficient by streamlining and automating your processes whenever possible.

If you have to do something more than once, set up a system!

How to run your business like a boss?

Take Bookings Automatically

Wouldn’t it be nice not having to go back and forth with your clients just to (re)schedule an appointment?

Think of all the lost potential revenue in the past – simply because you or your team weren’t available at 11pm or 3am to accept a booking?

Open your beauty salon to new appointment opportunities 24/7 with Shortcuts’ online booking software. As a fully-integrated feature, Shortcuts allows you to take appointments and upfront payments without the risk of overlapping or double-booking 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Time and cost-saving as well as soaring profits? Yes please!

Streamline Your Frontdesk

Take your business automation to the next level with the Shortcuts Point of Sale system. Designed to help you process transactions with ease, while automatically compiling client history and performance statistics, there’s no better way to streamline the way you work.

What’s more, Shortcuts lets you:

  • Finish up every day on a stress-free note with the  Shortcuts end-of-day wizard
  • Confidently manage promotions by having discounts automatically apply when certain criteria are met
  • Check out multiple clients in a single transaction.

Automate Your Marketing

What if we told you, you can send out targeted and personalised emails to clients based on their interactions with you, without having to lift a finger?

With automated marketing, you only need to create the content once using Shortcuts’ simple drag ‘n’ drop interface, then let your email marketing take care of itself all year round!

Triggered by client information in your system, such as birthdays or the date of their last visit, your beauty salon software system will deliver personalised communications to your clients automatically.

Design your own success story after buying yourself “more time”

Now that you’ve streamlined the way you work and automated the essentials, you’ll have more time to work on your business, rather than in your business!
