THE PROBLEM

Front Door Syndrome

Your website is the front door of your business. Whether it’s a complete stranger looking for salon, or a referral doing their due diligence to scope out the place their friend recommended – people are going to trust you (or not) based on the quality of your online presence. Is your website working with you or against you?

THE PROBLEM

The most common phrases we’ve heard.

  • My website is outdated / I don't have a website!
  • My website doesn’t reflect the quality of service we offer
  • My website is outdated and ugly
  • My website is difficult / impossible to update
  • I don’t have time to think about this but I know I need it.

THE PROBLEM

The reality of our digital world

  • People judge you by what they see (or don't see) of you online. Your website is either helping or hurting your brand.
  • New websites are expensive and time consuming to create.
  • It takes technical & creative experience, research and user experience (UX) study to create a successful website that drives your business.
  • If not constantly updated, many websites become outdated in 12-18 months.
  • If you don't currently have a website or social media for your business, you are deemed by most consumers as nonexistent, or irrelevant.

THE MARKET

People are going to someone to make them look good – but that doesn’t mean they’re coming to you.

94% of people search for local organizations online before committing to purchase.

97% of people cited poor website design as the reason they mistrusted an organization.

The annual revenue of the hair salon industry in the US is over $47 billion and growing at a rate of 2% every year.

83% of Millennials find online content useful in making purchasing decisions.

$25+ billion per year is spent by people 35 years and younger on salon services.

While revenue is growing, salons are closing at a rate of 5%/yr. as the industry becomes more and more competitive.

The facts don't lie. Your website is the front door of your business. . . Don't let it turn customers away!

THE SOLUTION

A website solution that works for you (and your budget).

Your website should stand alone as a direct representation of your business for someone who’s had no experience with you. It can make or break the decision a client makes when choosing you, or a competitor.

Even more-so in a visual & creative industry, people are going to trust you (or not) based on the quality of your online presence. Because of this, we’ve designed the perfect website framework to help give you the best online presence possible.
