Mindbody Introduces Revenue Calculator for Salons
San Luis Obispo, California – Mindbody, the fastest growing business management software in the salon industry, now offers a simple tool to help salons to calculate the increased revenue and reduced expenses they might achieve when they use the software.
“We have years of hard data demonstrating the double-digit revenue increases our business clients typically experience when they use our software,” said Meg McCall, director of marketing at Mindbody. “We’ve taken that data and put in into a calculator that provides multi-year revenue estimates for salons thinking about making the switch to Mindbody.”
The Real Results calculator factors in:
- projected revenue that can be achieved when salons use online appointment booking and retail sales, client management and marketing features of the software;
- time and expense savings from the automation of (formerly manual) administrative tasks, such as returning phone calls or producing payroll; and
- long-term projected revenue for salons who participate in Mindbody University, a 3-day business conference that has created 42% revenue growth for past Mindbody client attendees.
“The move from appointment books to online scheduling alone is a significant time saver for most salons, and the calculator helps translate that savings into actual dollars,” said McCall. The calculator cannot guarantee that a salon will achieve the projections generated, said McCall, “but based on the actual year-over-year results of the thousands of clients we serve, they’ll provide a pretty good benchmark.”
