I am offering a 10% off for new clients between the 20th-30th sept. Yet i have had no bookings for it :( giving all regulars 20% off till the end of the year also.. Hoping it will encourage them to grab as much in before the end of the year.

I was going to purchase something online, to offer as a freebie, like pinkie solaroil, but i need to sell the 7.3mil i have here already :/


I am out of idea, i have had two cancellations on me already for Monday, as i am mobile, two was in the morning at one house and another two after local, so thats 4 girls and two bookings technically, but that is a lot of money lost too.. They said they don't have the money or haven't been paid :/

I seem to have more cancel now.. I can't grab deposits because i don't know how to go about explaining on how to get one..

I want to fill my weeks up to get more word of mouth, i am out of ideas..

Also having the same problem :( i haven't been giving discounts as i feel sometimes that just attracts people wantin to pay less & it doesn't tend to attract genuine, long-term clients. I have seen a few threads on here saying they are having a quiet few week/months so maybe it is just down to the period after school hols xx

I don't do discounts, as when I trained I didn't get no discounts for my training.

I've trained with the best, my prices are higher than the local NSS but my products are quality.

I do offers to introduce new products for a period of time, but never do discounted offers.

Discounts attract the wrong type of clients and that's something I don't want to do. Right now all my clients are professionals and my aim is to keep it that way.

Hope that helps!

Business is quiet for me too but I refuse to drop my prices. I feel that they are fair enough already. I tried a Facebook competition but that was useless - can't even give away treatments! So I've decided no discounts and no freebies. It's really really hard as I am on unpaid maternity from my full-time job so no clients means no income. But I want working professionals as clients not deal chasers. Xx
