I’m currently renting a chair at a salon and I’m just interested to hear how it works for everyone else that’s doing this. I’m the only self employed one in my salon so the other 4 are on the salon booking system, I do my own with clients contacting me directly, the new ones usually find me via social media (but this is a bit infrequent). I pay a set amount of rent per week and don’t do any percentage payments apart from if it’s a salon client I’ve ended up doing, which only happens very occasionally. My problem is I’m not getting busy enough as new clients don’t know I’m here, of course I have my old client base of people I’ve done for years but I need some ways to advertise to new clients, as people don’t seem to understand how it works with me as an individual working in the salon but not working for them. The salon is a lot busier than I am and I often have empty half days while everyone else is fully booked. Is this how it normally is for anyone self employed? Just looking to maximise my business to its best potential really, whilst enjoying working in my salon with my colleagues (who have become friends).
