We wrote in our last blog about how we would approach being a nomad in a foreign country, namely - marketing to tourists from your own country and offering them your services with appointment scheduling software.
In this post, we'll give you a concrete example of how French barbers use appointment scheduling, and a bit of social media marketing to be not-so-digital nomads running their own business by the beach in Australia.
A friend of ours from France started his barber business in Sydney using the following steps:
Use Facebook to build a customer base. There is no shortage of "French people in Australia" groups on facebook, and often there are tourists asking for advice on where to get a haircut.
Use Appointment Scheduling software to manage his time. Because our friend also has a life, and doesn't want to be cutting hair 24/7 - he sets up his free time slots on an Appointment Scheduler, letting potential customers know when they can book him.
