You are the expert
The best way of learning a task is to actually execute the task. You learn much more and faster if you not only read about a new task, but if in your case practice to be an expert in selling hair extensions.
Why would you want to learn anything
First of all, you will be the boss of your own business, and that’s great because you do not have to listen to anybody else before you make a decision. But sometimes it is not that great because sometimes you do not know everything you need to know before you can make a decision, about hiring a person, about marketing or social media or bookkeeping. But also if you want to advice somebody about the hair she wants to purchase, or if you want to improve your service level to offer your clients more, you need to study first.
What is the use of being an expert in selling hair extensions?
Online, the first thing a potential buyer will use to compare two or more hair extension stores they have never bought from before, is price. The pictures of the hair can be nice, but the first trigger is how much do they charge? Avoid a business model that competes on price, unless you are as big as Amazon or Wallmart, only because there is only one way, and that’s lower, lower and .. no profit. The next thing people who are new on your site is what can they tell me about the hair and her your expertise comes in. If you have well studied the beauty industry and you have published some articles about this on your own blog, or as a guest blogger, or perhaps in a magazine, use this to expose your expertise. If people contact you with questions and YOU are able to answer them to their satisfaction, the price suddenly is less important. People are sensitive to authority and you can use that by sharing your expertise.
But there is more
