What can I earn at bello?
We’re not successful unless our professionals are successful, we’ll provide you all the tools you need to operate a successful business. The following is an example of the analysis you can do to determine the benefits of operating you own salon suite.
Think about your typical client and what your week looks like – here is an example – do the analysis using your own numbers to understand what you may earn.
A typical professional will generally see 30-35 clients per week with an average ticket price of $75 – $250. For our example: Multiply 30 Clients times $75 average ticket price per client which equals $2,250 per week in gross income.
Don’t forget to include product sales; your clients welcome your recommendations, and this is a great source of profit for you. A rule of thumb is to mark your products up 100% or double the price you pay your supplier; remember you get to set your own prices!
15 items per week at $20 per item = $300. If you are using a 100% mark up your cost of goods – or what you pay for the products would be $150 leaving you with a profit of $150 per week.
bello suites start at $249 per week; including your laundry.
$2,250 in client tickets plus $150 in product sales minus your suite rental of $249 = $2,150.00 net income per week. Remember, just like your paycheck you’ll need to pay your taxes out of your gross earnings.
If you were working at a 50% commission with 10% share for product sales your net income per week would be $997.50. Wow, your potential earnings at bello would be more than DOUBLE!
If are currently working for an hourly wage as an employee earning $18 per hour 40 hours per week you would earn $720 – you could earn THREE times as much at bello or even more!
At bello you can offer the services you choose at prices you think are appropriate and you keep the money!
You have the potential, let us help you fully achieve all you’ve dreamed of!
