BARBERSHOPOne way to increase your barber income is to always wear a barber t shirt or smock so that people will recognize that you are a barber and guaranteed a few people a day will approach you about where you cut hair.

A second tip is to always keep business cards handy with a picture of your face on it.  Don’t hand out cards with only the picture of a haircut on it.  Start branding yourself by putting your picture on the card versus a picture of some random haircut.

People don’t forget faces. So the more cards that you pass out with your face on it, the more people will remember your face.  Another tip is to keep a Blackberry with all of your clients in it so that you can text them about specials on certain days.

These techniques have made me a LOT of money in the barber business and i hope they help you as well.

    I am a barber out of Indiana. I agree that texting specials is a big thing to keep in contact with your clients now a days since everyone has a phone. I actually got into a text marketing program which I am able now to offer. How it works, you create a keyword for yourself and have your clients text into your keyword once they do that they are now in your database. So say you have 1,000 people that texted your keyword now when you run a special it will go out to all 1,000 at one time, there is also no limit on how many people it sends to so however many people you have in your database thats how many people are going to receive the text. You are also able to set up your specials for any day and any time you want your people to receive your specials if you already know what days you want to have specials for example like holidays or shop anniversaries. There’s also a lot more you can do with the program such as mobile websites and creating QR Codes to name a few.

      We have a men’s grooming lounge in Las Vegas, a few miles off of the strip. We currently have weekly specials but I was trying to think of different specials other than the 50% off Wednesdays that we do, maybe run specials through out the week or something. If there is something specific that another barber shop is doing any idea would be greatly appreciated!

      Doesn’t have to be a blackberry. It can be any phone. From my experience, blackberry allows me to text more than 500 people at a time and some phones only allow 20 texts at a time.
