Ideas from the MIKAL Salon Success Club

Posted on October 25, 2020 at 11:35 AM

Success Club Ideas 2020

WOW was the MIKAL Salon and Spa Owner Success Club meeting great.

See the ideas below and you can’t beat Florida for the weather and activities.


Interview groups for the first cut. Use a team of staff to do it. Cut half the applicants after a few group questions. Then get serious.

 Test your best team members with Meyer Briggs and then test applicants. Hire the ones like your best team members. Don’t hire people the test like you!

 Use a little stress in the interview. Have 2 people interview the applicant at one time. Ask tough questions about last job. Ask them to sell you a pen in the interview.

 Always ask about hobbies, what magazines to they read, what do they like to do on their time off. Look for people that have interests and passions about things.

 Use Craigs list for applicants. Sign up for the state Job1 or Workforce1 program so the applicant ad gets uploaded to Monster free!

Do interview off site and always state in ad it is a confidential interview. The first phone call to the applicant needs to be an interview. Ask questions allowing them to sell themselves in the interview.

Have an interview presentation kit. See the MIKAL PDF for ideas.

Always list the job benefits and the critical requirements.

If a staff member leaves do not give out their new location. Say “they have not authorized us to give out that information” when a client asks.

Use the 4 step MIKAL client retrieval mailing and emailing to keep clients when a stylist leaves.

Set up Advanced goals in the MIKAL system. Also receptionist and managers goals. Put them in the paychecks!

Don’t let staff go to next price level until retention is at least 80% repeat request.

Salon normal new client retention is 30% - ouch! Work on welcome book, walk up script, and client exit to improve new client retention.


Align with a good reputation management company that has strong local track record to push good comments and improve rankings. Check their referrals locally!

Use JITA with all the filters!

Use EMBA to book right at the chair or in the room before the client goes to the front desk.

Review the Demandforce option – it may be right for you!

Get your Upsells in place in the prototypes and spiff the receptionists who deliver the upsells. Start tracking the upsells, rebooks, and cancel no rebook in the MIKAL system.

Set receptionist goals in the MIKAL system.

Activate all the autopilot offers. Subject needs to only be 3 words.

Use AIDA in your marketing:





If the marketing does not create a phone call is not good marketing!

Update your Google Places and activate your Google offer TODAY!

Use surveys in salon/spa and on-line for feedback. Try the free surveys in Survey Monkey and Google Drive.

Always ask the 4 main questions relating to why clients don’t come back:

Was the salon/spa clean?

Was the receptionist nice and accommodating?

Did the service provider listen and do what you asked?

Were you taken on time?

Get the loyalty points program going now. Roll all your rewards into the points program including referral rewards, prebooking, new client points, and early week bookings. Make it about a 2% cash back on sales. Only let the client redeem 50% of a sale for points. Set this all up with your MIKAL reps.

 Get a referral contest going! Get 60 to 120 new clients.

 That’s it for now. Wow what a bunch of great ideas in 3 days.
