Whether you’re planning on taking a well-deserved vacation this summer or closing up your salon a a few hours early during the week, you’ll want to make sure you communicate any changes to your clients. Neglecting to inform clients of any changes in your hours could reflect negatively on your salon. You wouldn’t want to lose a client’s business by having them show up to an empty salon, would you? Of course not! Here’s everything you need to know about scheduling your salon’s summer hours.
The easiest way to update your salon’s hours is on your Google My Business page. If you already have a Google My Business page (you really should!), then you know that updating your salon’s hours is pretty simple. However, a recent Google update now gives your salon the option to update business hours in advance. By scheduling your salon’s summer hours in advance, you can save valuable time. To update your salon’s hours, simply log into your Google My Business page. Choose your location (if you have more than one) and make your changes in the special hours section. Click apply to save your changes. It’s that easy!
There’s no limit to how far in advance you can schedule your hours, so you can schedule your Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years hours in advance. Don’t worry if your schedule changes closer to the holidays, any updates you make can be changed at any time. A note about holiday hours: if you don’t add holiday hours, Google will display a disclaimer informing users that your hours might differ for that holiday. This can be confusing to your clients, so be sure to update your holiday hours, in advance or not.
Don’t forget to update your salon’s summer hours on your website, social media pages and online listings as well. These marketing channels are also a great place to spread the word about your new summer hours. Let your clients know that like them, you’re off catching some waves or working on your tan. Ensure that your hours are consistent across all channels by updating them all at the same time.
