Barbershops have been revolutionized over the past year. Shops that were once bustling with energy and activities have had to slow down the pace, restrict the number of people inside, and in some unfortunate cases downsize. With an uncertain future and people having less events they feel the need to look fresh for, longer lengths have been embraced and services have seen a decline.
>Here are ways you can support your barber without getting a haircut and best of all, they’re all budget friendly; three out of four ways are free.
Hair speaks for itself but the confidence of the person wearing it speaks volumes. As a barber who has built a clientele in three cities and fortunately never have had to spend a dollar on promoting ads, the number one and fastest way I have been able to do so has always been from word-of-mouth.
Leave a positive review online
In a world where people are hyped up on cancel culture, too few people are as hyped up to share their positive experiences. A few words and five stars on Google reviews go a long way.
Engage with your service provider’s social media
Natural rhythm is more important than algorithm but we all know there are things that help. Like their post, comment on their post, and share. Your engagement will boost their engagement and in turn further their reach. It’s like a real world referral but online and lucky you will be living out your dream of influencing.
Buy products where you get your haircut
There are a number of reasons why this is important. On top of the fact that these products are just straight up all around better for you, you will still be generating revenue in your beloved bubble. Every dollar you spend comes back to you multiplied seeing that a little bit of product will go a long way.
