Here is a question that most people looking to become a nail technician ask themselves. For some, becoming a nail tech is something to do to supplement their current income.
However, there are nail technicians that are making a living at doing nails and have gone beyond treating their nail business as a hobby. Today’s techs are getting super savvy at how they are marketing their business and realizing a nice income in the process.
Part of their success has been due to online technology and the internet. Online technology has opened doors to reaching a larger audience to market to. Sites like Twitter and Facebook are helping to network and build relationships with many people on daily basis creating an avenue to attract more and keep more clients.
YouTube has opened the door for nail technicians to put their work in front of 100’s of people daily enabling them to brand themselves as an expert in their industry.
The internet also makes beauty marketing information available at the push of a button. Nail techs can find information online you probably won’t find at your local library on this subject.
Successful nail salons will tell you the main ingredients to making money as a nail tech is knowing how to get clients, keep them, and get a ton of referrals consistently. They rely on good marketing combined with good relationship building tools to attract and keep clients coming back month after month.
You should also understand that there is a difference whether you work for yourself or if you work for someone as an employee. You will always make more if you work for yourself and know how to market your business successfully. Your income will usually have a cap if you are employed by a salon which will limit the amount of money you can ultimately make.
It’s possible to make a good income from doing acrylic nails and nail art designs if you market your business successfully. Just like any other business you have to work at it daily. The beauty industry is a very large industry with many opportunities to make money. It’s a profession that has many rewards when approached correctly.
