How to update your stock during lockdown

As we all know, times are tough for everyone at the moment. Despite this, there are a few things you can do from home to generate income for your business. These include selling gift vouchers online and offering delivery on retail products sold in your salon.

You can retail your products via an online shop if you have one set up on your website or just via your social media. The first step to this is shouting about what you have to offer on your social media channels. Make your clients aware of the products you have and why they need them.

Once the word is out there and your clients begin to purchase, that’s where iSalon comes in. Don’t wait for your stock levels to drop and carry out a full stock take. Use iSalon stock take reporting to keep this up to date in real time. This will make your life a whole lot easier when you return to the salon. You will have an accurate stock take on your software system and will be able to prepare for reopening accordingly.

We have recently released some Youtube videos sharing ‘how to’ complete certain tasks on your iSalon software. To keep an accurate stock take report on iSalon you can head into ‘report’s’ and then ‘stock take report’. You have the option to select which suppliers you’d like to add to your report. This then provides a list of products and you can manually enter the amount of products you currently have. Take some time at the end of each day or week to update this during lockdown if you are selling products to your clients online.

By offering products at home this will ensure your salon remains at the front of your clients’ minds and help you to generate some income during this extremely tough time.
