We will have plenty of services available for £15 for example but we would not visit a customers house for just that they would have to book that service and another to get over the £25 threshold for our mobile services. And wow you work really long days dont you? I was thinking if I asked the girls to work 8 hours and 30 minutes that would be a long day.
Good morning Charlotte thanks for all your advice honestly you have been fantastic with all the help you have given me! And I did some research looking at Salon prices and Mobile prices to work out my prices for each service. I tried to be as competitive as I could offering these new services. And I decided that the minimum spend would be £25. Thats the only way I could make the service financially viable.
With regards to wages what would be a good wage? Our minimum spend for a mobile service will be £25 is this too low? This will obviously influence what I can pay in wages. We will be a mobile business and I am thinking of £15 per booking and getting each employee to complete 6 bookings a day. Would this be a good wage? So a daily rate would be £90 but this will include £10 for petrol. Is this a good wage?
Good morning Charlotte, Thanks so much for all your advice and for taking the time to respond. I will look at all your suggestions regarding recruitment and also advertising too. Though I am actually a marketing and web design expert! So I'm hopeful that side of things will be relatively straight forward. Its the recruitment side and getting good employees I am concerned about.
Ok. I am in London too but we have a mobile business. Thanks for all your help. It is very much appreciated. Its tough when you are new to everything and have to learn everything at once. I would like to grow the business now and I am looking for advice about where best to hire new staff from the beauty and hairdressing. Have you got any ideas? Recruitment companies are too expensive for small businesses.
