Using Mobile Tech in Your Health or Beauty Business
If you are in the health or beauty industry, you are probably aware of the many tasks that need to be performed in order to make your business successful. Undertaking these tasks manually or with an out of date point of sale system, creates a lot of work and in most cases, mistakes can happen not to mention the fatigue that always results after a hard day at work. This negatively affects your business and you and your staff’s ability to get things done effectively. Bringing in mobile technology to your health or beauty business can make all the difference and ensure that you not only grow your business but you also stay ahead of your competitors.
So, how can you use mobile devices to run your health or beauty business? Below are some examples of the different areas in your business where mobile can be applied to ensure that your business runs smoothly.
- Use some of the Apps developed for business purposes to schedule appointments and send reminders to customers. By doing this you can be guaranteed that your customers will be happy and you will also not waste time waiting for clients who do not turn up. This includes automatic SMS messaging and email reminder notifications.
- Integrate your systems. Match the cash drawer receipts to your appointment schedule to ensure that you do not end up losing money for work that has been completed, but no money collected.
- Run your business ‘in the cloud’. This means that you can comfortably run your business from wherever you are in the world. Your clients will also get to make online bookings at their convenience and this can only translate to more customers returning. You will be able to manage your inventory and ensure that you have everything you need to make your business successful and you can also manage your staff easily and conveniently.
- Social media marketing. This is by far the easiest and cheapest way of marketing your business; letting more people know about the services you offer and how they can access these services.
Integrating mobile technology into your business is both easy and cost effective. All you have to do is to buy a mobile device that allows you to integrate your business activities and run then more efficiently.
In some cases, you might need to hire a professional to link up your system and introduce some business Apps but that is a one-time expense and you do not have to dig deep into your pocket in order to do this.
By utilising mobile technology in your business, you will spend less time worrying about some of the routine activities that can be run automatically, and more time looking for ways and means of improving your business and taking it to the next level.
