From Surviving to Thriving

The last 12 months in small business has been one of the toughest yet. 

One of the biggest challenges salon owners faces right now is being able to hold onto good staff and obtain new ones. It’s now more than ever we need to rethink HR systems and look at ensuring career growth, ongoing training, and stronger salary opportunities for high achievers. 

Other areas include never ending client illness causing last minute cancellations and the need to look at implementing systems that keep income consistent regardless. Inflation, rising living costs and mortgage hikes are also causing clients to visit less regularly playing havoc with profitability. 

Having owned and managed businesses during the covid crisis, our experienced team understand just how difficult it is out there. You don’t have to do this alone…….if you’re feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and unsure on what to do next, NL has come up with proven strategies to completely shake things up and change the outcome of your business. 

Having NL coaching and membership support will not only help you simply sustain, but also ensure you and your team thrive.

Working with Elke and the team at Next Level has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself and my business. Elke understands just how tough the journey can be for small business owners, having owned and managed her own clinics for up over 20+ years. She provides amazing, helpful knowledge on how to set goals that are achievable. During our “one on one” sessions, she has taken the time to really listen to my needs and has given my team the most amazing guidance. I can’t thank Elke enough…….she even picked up something my accountant should have been on top of. She really has helped me take my business to the next level.

We have just completed our Dermaplaning training and we are so grateful we chose Next Level Aesthetics and Ultimate Salon Supplies. From our first enquiry they were excellent and very informative. The training was brilliant and very in-depth leaving us very excited and confident to start treating our Clients. If you’re interested in introducing Dermaplaning into your Salon, we can highly recommend Next Level Aesthetics and Ultimate Salon Supplies. It was wonderful to deal with such a professional Company. Thank you so much.

Cherie – Simply Elegant QLD

My team was lacking in skills, and I was struggling to really get accountability when it came to achieving targets. I felt as though I was talking to a brick wall. After joining the Next Level salon optimizer membership over 12 months ago, my team is now performing so much more consistently. Not only are they getting stronger and more confident in their services, but their retail and rebooking has improved by more than 20%. My staff are motivated and thanks to the team at NL I feel less pressured knowing that I have support to really grow my team and the business.

Maryanne – Spoilt Rotten

Thank you so much girls…the training we had with you this month was really positive for our entire team. Everyone loved having the chance to discuss our goals and visions together for the year. We benefited greatly working together to build on our strengths and also implementing ways to improve certain areas we need to work on. You have taught us the true value and importance of what regular communication and team meetings can do for our business. Thank you so much. Signing onto a membership has been one of the best financial decisions I’ve made.

It's OK to ask for help

Being in business is never easy and with staff shortages and other challenges making things extra difficult now, you constantly need to find new ways to gain the best outcomes. But…….who’s got the time or the mental energy for this when you’re already working in the business?? 

Maybe you’ve got a family and constantly chasing your tail to just keep up with the day to day, or whether you simply have a love for treating clients and don’t know how or have the desire to manage a team……..

Whatever the concern is, we understand your pain!! It’s ok to ask for help. 

Don’t be ashamed or scared to take action. Having a support person to guide you and also grow your team can be an absolutely life changing.

“Change is painful, but nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.”

Mandy Hale

A word from our founder Elke

Having owned clinics with up over 20+ staff, I was constantly chasing my tail when it came to working in and on the business. Training my team was really time consuming, but it was an integral part in the success and growth of my business. 

Being in WA especially, I was conscious of the lack of education and coaching support available to salon owners. Staff are everything and without a well-trained team with career progression opportunities, too many leave the industry for all the wrong reasons and clinic owners constantly having to rebuild. 

It was then that I realised the need for something that offered ongoing support and training for teams, allowing salon owners more time to work on clients and building the business. 

Next Level memberships have helped over 50+ businesses Australia wide since their inception 24 months ago and focus on the crucial areas of customer care, treatment techniques, accountability of targets and clinic expectations, motivation, consultation, management and much much more.

Frequently asked questions

I don’t want any team training, I’m just looking for business support, can you help me?

Yes, we can. We offer individual coaching sessions or can also tailor 6-month membership options to suit your exact needs.

Do you offer independent therapists a membership option to attend online and face to face training modules?

We offer something for everyone and for those looking for regular advancements, this is an affordable way to access some of our pre-set course modules throughout the year.

I have a team of dermal therapists who are exceptional with treatments, but need assistance with customer care, rebooking and retail. Is this something you can train in?

We sure can……With a number of skin expert educators, we have a way to transform even the most highly skilled staff. We understand the importance of creating a well-rounded service and believe that customer experience is one of the key areas to ensure customers stay long term.

I have no salon protocols in place currently. Can you help with this?

As part of our memberships, everyone receives 24/7 access to our large array of salon procedure manuals and templates. The investment of these alone can range anywhere from $350-$1000 but are FOC for all membership clients.

I’m nervous about signing up for 6 months. Is there any other option?

We have plenty of happy clients that have benefited from our memberships that would be open to sharing their experience with you. Or…..you also have the option to pay as you go for absolutely any training or coaching sessions. 

Our goal is to make sure everyone is comfortable with what they’re paying for. You may also wish to take advantage of some of our “pay as you go” pre-set training modules available on the online learning tab on the website. 

If I don’t get time for monthly training, can the hours be saved up and used throughout the year?

Absolutely!! If there is 6 months of training, you will have access to 6 hours of training over the duration that can be used for one or all your team. On occasions we have some clinics utilise the time to upskill/onboard new therapists in large blocks. We offer flexibility to ensure everyone benefits in the best ways needed.
