A barber’s shop can be a nice little earner. Cash sales of around £40-£60 per hour when you’re busy, plenty of folk to talk to, and don’t forget that hairdressers are officially the happiest workers.
I haven’t had any great allegiance to any single barber but that changed a bit yesterday. I was surprised, impressed and amused when I got an email from Barber Brown, the barbershop I’ve taken my two lads (5 and 7) to a couple of times recently. The email subject was “Happy Valentines”. Here’s the complete email text:
Dear Valued customer,
wishing you all the best for valentines day.
See you soon, lets hope your smiling!
I make that five grammatical errors in 20 words, which is going some.
But that’s irrelevant. Barber Brown got my attention and he’s doing good marketing:
- He’s staying in touch with a customer
- He linked his email to a current event (always a good trick)
- He attached a funny flyer (above).
Where will I take the kids next time? Barber Brown.
