Marketing Outline & Sales Strategy

  • Growth Strategy

    • The major market for our products and services is singles, couples, and families within but not limited to a twenty-mile radius. The owners/managers have clients that travel twenty to ninety miles, and many plan their business around their hair care needs. Salon Flora has easy access from a main highway with plenty of parking, a rarity in the downtown business district. Our service is for individuals but might be beneficial for companies and corporations, through incentive programs, such as business make over or promotional services.


      We will also promote bridal packages through local hotels and associated business and day-of-beauty packages complete with lunch and door-to-door limousine service, if desired. HairFlux Corporation will offer our services through their 800 phone number, website, and corporate store at the nearby Shady Oak Mall, along with our own Salon Flora website. We will concentrate on the Palma county area in southern Florida.

  • Marketing & Sales

    • Our marketing strategy is a simple one: satisfied clients are our best marketing tool. When a client leaves our business with a new look, he or she is broadcasting our name and quality to the public.

      Most of our new clients are referrals from existing clients. We reward clients for referrals with free shampoo and/or conditioner. Distribution of coupons for a free gift with product purchases or services at the salon "grand opening" celebration will strengthen customer loyalty.

      We will publish ads in local publications and magazines to promote our staff, services, and retail products. The publications we will work with are:

      ·         Best Images: a full color, bi-monthly advertising magazine with a 100,000 home circulation in the regional area. This full page, color ad will cost $4,000 and reach potential upper-income clients.

      ·         All the News Magazine: a trusted reference for business and shopping resources, with a home circulation of 50,000 in the nearby coastal areas. These full-page color ads cost $1,115 for an inside page, and $3,000 for front cover. These ads will reach potential clients with $50,000 to $150,000 incomes.

      ·         Yellow Pages: We will also place ads in the Yellow Pages which have the entire county circulation.


      ·         We will also have our own Salon Flora-HairFlux Institute website. This website is always available for stylists and guests. Information on current promotions, upcoming events, education and links to the HairFlux Corporation are instantly available.

  • Management Team

    • Yvette and Alan have both been independent contractors for a combined thirty-two years, and have the experience, passion, and working knowledge to get the job done.

      Alan F. Slinger                                                                                                                           

      Owner/Manager/Artistic Director. Alan has been in the beauty industry for eighteen years and brings a large variety of experience to this venture; upon graduating from Monique Beauty College in 1990 he worked for one of New York’s leading salons, helping with education and platform work for bothHairFlux and Matrix/Logics Corporations. He was also a part-time Artistic Educator with Matrix/Logics, responsible for color and hair cutting classes in New York City. His previous experiences consist of commercial, retail stores, management, construction and manufacturing. Alan’s retail management experience and general business knowledge grounds him in the realties of running a successful business. He loves dealing with people, and has the drive, ambition, and discipline to manage the business and its employees. This career is his life, his calling.

      Yvette Cruz

      Owner/Manger: Yvette Cruz was born in Barcelona, Spain, forty years ago. She is the second child of nine. She began her career by mentoring her three cousins.

      At age 21, she moved to the United States. After finishing her education at Monique Beauty College she went to work in her cousin’s salon. Cruz is involved in various activities in the world of beauty. She is responsible for the designing and marketing of a specialty tool called the Color-Wandz, created to expedite the stylist time in color services. She has worked with the HairFlux product line for the past eleven years as an independent contractor, and also has been involved in many global events for HairFlux. She is a firm believer in donating her artistic talents for various events.

      Personnel Plan


      The personnel plan calls for a receptionist starting in the second year. The receptionist will answer phone, book appointments, and receive payments for services and products. There will be eleven hair stylists, one artistic director/owner, one stylist/owner, two part-time assistant stylists, one esthetician and a massage therapist. Everyone but the receptionist and assistants will be independent contractors, and will pay a weekly fee for their station or treatment room.

Financial Data & Projections

  • Financial Analysis


      Our goal is to be a profitable business beginning in the second month. The owners and stylists already have an existing client base.

      The financials that are enclosed have a number of assumptions:

      ·         Chair rental value is $250.00 per week x 11 chairs = $2,750.00 per week x 52 = $143,000 per year. This figure is not assumed until the end of the first year. Our projections are based on opening with three stylists. We will then add a stylist the second month, the third month, the fourth month, and the sixth month. Salon Flora will then add two more stylists in the eighth month and two more in the tenth month.

      ·         Revenues will grow on chair rental each month and level off at the end of the first year with all chairs rented.

      ·         Revenues will grow at an annual rate near 50% on retail sales in year one.

      ·         Revenues are expected to increase in November and December due to holiday sales at this time of year. We anticipate this increase from gift certificates and increased product sales, and to stay steady throughout the following year to account for the normal flow of new clients coming into the salon and our aggressive marketing program.

      ·         Estimates for sales revenue and growth are intentionally low, while anticipated expenses are exaggerated to illustrate a worst-case scenario.

      We have included cost of goods sold in our calculation of net sales because we expect to do a high volume of retail through our salon. However the majority of sales are coming from the services and rental income.

      Product sales will be a major part of our business. We are projecting sales of $4,000 a month increasing each month thereafter as we add stylists to the salon. We expect each stylist to sell a minimum of $100.00 per day in retail. We also project the treatment rooms to generate a minimum of $170.00 per day in retail sales. We are certain that in time these services will be a large part of our revenue, but to err on the conservative side, we estimate revenues from these services to be only $3,655.00 a month for the first year.


      To assure the initial capital fund lender that the owners are financially stable, personnel tax returns for both partners for the last three years are attached. Another source of collateral is Alan Slinger’s home, valued at $500,000 with a payoff balance of $395,000.
