A Great Website Goes A Long Way

Hello friends!

I wanted to put up a quick post about my website since I receive so many wonderful comments and questions on it.  My website was designed hosted and maintained by www.daystarconcepts.com for an incredible rate and has been assessed at over $6000. I can easily update photos text or posts on my own instantly or submit them to my webmaster.

My site is secure and functional and easy to navigate for both my clients and my own updating needs, which is exactly what I was looking for. Mention this post and receive a great rate as an awesome partner incentive being offered to my wonderful clientele.  You can also look them up on Facebook to keep current with their ongoing specials and growing portfolio.  I highly recommend DayStar Concepts as I have changed my website and had it revamped to a much more professional look thanks to them (any of my  veteran clientele can agree the upgrade from the black and purple site was much needed!)

I have received nothing but incredible feedback from clients, other spas and even suppliers since the switch.  My website has been a major generator of new clientele and a diversified audience with hits coming from all around the world now. My search engine optimization has been increasing every month so my need for any sort of promoting or advertising has dropped substantially as everyone seems to find me now, I just have to keep up with the influx of business!

I hope this has answered any questions you may have had, if any further information is required please feel free to contact me or Daysar Concepts directly we’d both be happy to help.

 

Thanks!

The Good Kind of Growing Pains!

Hello all!

I know it has been way too long since my last blog post, I apologize! I am happy to announce the delay is due to positive events, my business is growing faster then I could have even imagined. Most days are pretty booked and I know I am in dire need of a receptionist! I appreciate all my amazing clients patience as I am a one girl show and dedicate my appointment times to only my clients during their service. This means I miss a lot of phone calls (which I return promptly in the order in which they are received). I’m sorry, but at this time this is the best system in which I can keep everything organized I just ask that you leave me a message and I will get right back to you. I have an influx of calls, emails, texts and of course physical clients in the office, it is an amazing blessing which I’m still learning to juggle and manage. With that being said, I think it is obvious to my clients that I am extremely customer service orientated, and each visit is a pleasant one dedicated to just them.

I would also like to send a huge thank you to my webhosting/webmaster DaystarConcepts for my website makeover, search engine optomization and awesome graphic design. I owe a huge amount of my success to you and get ongoing compliments on my site. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a website, they are affordable (even for us small businesses) and really easy to communicate with offering original design concepts that fit exactly what you have in mind. Check them out at http://www.daystarconcepts.com

I am a huge promoter of entrepreneurs, if you have a business card or pamphlet you would like me to display, bring one by on your next visit!

Thank you again everyone for your continued support and referrals!

Onward and Upwards – Always!

Hello all!

Although I have only been up and running for a month now some new awesome developments have come my way. Today I am spending the day completely remodeling my office with new salon equipment and furniture. This is going to allow me to advance my education and offer my clients a whole new range of spa pampering experiences! In the near future I will be breaking through the lash and nail part of Esthetics and opening up to paraffin treatments, makeup artistry, advanced waxing, massage, possibly hot stone treatments and eventually even facials.  These are just some of the services I plan on offering in the future and once I have mastered these, there will be more to come.  I will always be continually advancing keeping my clients up to date and fully pampered but conserving the same personalized one on one experience you love.

Thank you so much for your support, referrals and testimonials my clients are truly amazing and I owe you all so much for making my dreams come true I cant wait to offer more and more great services to you guys!

Be sure to keep an eye on the “Your Experience With Us” page for a preview of our new look!

Smells like Spring already!

Last night i left my window open all night and didn’t wake up with icicle eyelashes, in fact it was very comfortable, and to me that means spring is here!  So I figure its time to start hitting the gym getting “bikini ready” and all that, but I was missing one of the most obvious and important things you can do for summer.  There,  5’3″ below me were the most poor, neglected, Shrek like feet I have ever seen! Ashamed to say in the midst  doing clients nails and my winter hibernation I had completely disregarded my own feet. Needless to say I went straight up to the nail studio and fixed that situation right up.

Its funny how we can forget the little things, that come the sun can bring embarrassing realizations of how busy life can get and how the little pampering things we enjoy get put to the back burner.  Don’t let yourself be caught in this situation. Everyday its getting nicer and were seeing more snow melt, its going to be sandle season sooner than you know!

If your like me and don’t have the time/upkeep patience for regular pedicures, I suggest you try gel toes. I know it sounds a bit weird at first but I can guarantee you will be surprised at how much you will enjoy them. The color /nail doesn’t chip and wear like the polish of pedicures, the gel nails feel and look like real nails, most people wouldn’t know its gel. Best of all, gel toes seem to take forever to grow out to a noticeable state, therefore saving you the time of having to go every few weeks and money of getting the pedicure retouched 4-5 times during the summer.  Last year I had my gel toes done in June and it lasted me until August resisting all the camping, swimming and hiking I like to do with no challenge.  So if this sounds like something you would be interested in, or you have any more questions feel free to contact me!

Thanks!

Starting out

I am so happy to be home, not only because I was surprised with a more then perfect office from my hubby, but because of the warm and positive response everyone has shown me. I am reconnecting with so many wonderful people i don’t get to see when I’m in the everyday busy office job life. I am really enjoying the benefits of working for myself and in a beauty orientated industry to boot. I have spent the past while updating my website and facebook group and now am working on my business cards and other advertising alternatives. I still find myself with big gaps in the day and am really looking forward to building my clientele and coming up with fun bonuses and completely original designs that will set me apart from my competition. Thanks so much for your support and time!

The Countdown

Well I officially have one week left of my Esthetics course and I am feeling pretty confident about my choice and future. I have been averaging getting about half an hour quicker each set I do. Im also experimenting with different gel techniques and lots of fun art and decals. I have a wide variety of colours and designs for my clients already and only plan on expanding. I have so many ideas for nail designs and cant wait to see what my clients are going to come up with, I’m accepting all challenges 🙂
