As we remain in lockdown keeping your presence on social media during this time is really important. Make sure clients know you are still here. We’ve got some great ideas and a few resources that we think are well worth taking a look at if you have the time at the moment.
Skin Cancer Awareness Month
May is skin cancer awareness month and lots of our SkinBase therapists have completed this course in early signs and symptoms of skin cancer and melanoma that we wanted to share with you;
The course is just £20 and we think well worth completing if it helps you spot a potential issue for a client.
4-10th – Sun awareness week
A great opportunity to remind clients about the importance of using spf and to retail your products. SkinBase therapists can take advantage of our online ordering at the moment to have product orders dispatched directly to clients. Contact us for more info about this.
5th – Hand hygiene day
Never a more relevant topic at the moment. We recommend writing to clients (email and social post) to tell them how you are going to be taking extra precautions with hygiene and safety ahead of the salon reopening. We’re sure you follow excellent hygiene practices anyway however clients will want reassurance you are going above and beyond to protect them.
We have a course link very relevant to this. Our trainer Samantha Eaton from Mysa Aesthetics Beauty & Training has an online theory course about infection control and priced at a very affordable £19. The course was written by a registered nurse with a degree in Infection Control who is currently advising organisations during the Covid-19 pandemic. She has worked for Public Health England and is up to date with the latest guidelines and information. Find out more here.
8th – VE Day 75 years
The 8th is VE Day marking 75 years since the end of World War II. This will also be the first May bank holiday.
13th – National Receptionist Day
We all know a great receptionist is worth their weight in gold. The face and voice of your business, taking calls, greeting clients and sorting out rebookings and making sure those retail sales happen, your receptionist is an essential part of the business so let’s celebrate them today!
13th – World Cocktail Day
We love our cocktails. We can’t go ‘out out’ for a drink at the moment, but there’s no stopping us from staying in. Why not share some recipes with clients or even plan a few mocktails to celebrate when lockdown ends and give clients a special treat!
17th – World Baking Day
18-24th – Mental Health Awareness Week
This year’s theme is ‘kindness’. There are lots of resources you can access on the Mental Health website to share with clients or for yourself if you are struggling during this difficult time.
25th – Bank Holiday
29th – National Biscuit Day
Everyone loves a biscuit (don’t they??) Find out what your clients love with a Facebook poll and you can make sure you are stocked up with their favourites when the salon opens. Ours is a chocolate hobnob thanks for asking!
