Hi, i live in the U.S and i am a hairdresser in a rental salon.  i think that would be the same as freelance.  I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on getting more clients.  i was thinking of making a flyer and passing them out around my salon. Is a flyer type advertising what i should be concentrating on or is there a better way to gain business other than referrals.  any help or ideas are greatly appreciated.

Hallo hairgirl, I guess in the true sense of the word you are working freelannce, do you not work as part of a team ? do you get any support from your salon ? flyers are a good idea, but you may well be better off passing your flyer's out to local businesses rather than in your own salon, ( would passing flyers out inside your salon take business away from other hairdressers working there, it might make thinks more difficult ) networking around your local community would be a boost to you, have you looked at online promotion, ie myspace is a great way to promote yourself and network, I do think that you are right that referals are the best introductions,

Yes we do have a team, but it is everyones own responsibility to get clients and run their own business. it is really laid back place. Yes i get some encouragement from the owner/person i have been assistanting for.  i was thinking about doing flyers around the town but i think your idea is great as far as the local businesses.  Thank you so much!  i will let you know how it goes!

Why not use the power of the internet, use clasified ads, craiglists etc or even salon directories!
