How do you as a salon owner decide what products to carry: What will you staff embrace believe in enough to use and sell?
*Is it the Brand?
*Is it the packaging?
*Is it smell?
*Is it cost?
As a retail product when marked up will it be profitability? Is it an all natural earth and environment saving product? How do you decide. Do you trust the sales Rep?
This is big business: you have to get it right on so many levels!
*How much can you mark it up?
*Will it sell? Does it have appeal?
*Do the staff like and support this product?
*Is the support education good?
How much stock do you have to carry? It’s so easy to get sucked in remember many product lines change packaging to re invent it and increase future sales. If you carry to much stock you may get left with old product! Carry only enough stock for a month at a time.Try to pay on 30 days and this way your don’t have money sitting on the shelf. Get staff involved, pay fair commission or incentive. Don’t mark up so much that it cannot sell. Stay on top of stock at all times do not let your friendly sales rep do the ordering for you!!!
