Afrokids salon is styled for success

Posted by Sureswipe on 26 November 2018

When Nthabeleng Nhlapo first opened the doors of AfroKids Salon in Rivonia, Sandton, her husband, Khotso had already done his homework on the best way for customers to do business with the newly launched hair salon.

Before AfroKids Salon made its first sale on 10 September 2016, Nhlapo had a Sureswipe card machine to make it easier for her clients to pay for her many services, including hairstyling and treatment, and hair accessories and products. A few months later, Nhlapo received another revenue boosting offer from Sureswipe that changed how she ran her business forever.

A seamless solution for steady sales

“In March 2017, we received an SMS from Sureswipe regarding the Loyalty Programme and how it can help a business grow revenue by up to 20%, she explains. “We decided to meet with the sales representative so she could explain the process and the details.”

By September 2017, AfroKids Salon experienced a significant increase in its sales and Nhlapo says that thanks to the programme, there has also been a steady increase in the business’s revenue growth.


Incentives that keep the customers coming

Now when Nhlapo’s clients come in for a haircut, braiding, hair extensions or cornrows, they’re able to earn points towards their next visit to the salon. “It offers a nice incentive to customers and encourages return visits,” she adds.
