#1 – Finding Your Dream Team
When it comes to building your dream team, the first step is to find people who truly resonate with your makeup business's core values and vision.
You want team members who are genuinely committed to the success of your brand, rather than solely focused on advancing their own makeup artist careers.
Once you've gathered your team, it's important to establish clear expectations and roles – and that brings us to the next point…
#2 – Defining Job Expectations
Before hiring, it's important to clearly outline what you expect from your team members.
Define their responsibilities, communication standards, work hours, and any additional tasks like client communication or PR. (I shared some really cool tools that can help you with this part in the video below).
Remember, responding promptly to client inquiries is a must, ideally within 72 hours – which is why the next point is worth mentioning…
#3 – Mastering Client Communication
Timely client communication is super important for maintaining professionalism – and it's crucial that everyone on your team gets that.
So, you want to make sure your team really understands the importance of responding quickly, especially when it comes to weekend inquiries.
And the more efficient systems you can put in place, the better – that way, you can guarantee your clients receive the best service possible.
