How To Recycle Traffic To Your Blog?

Starting a blog isn’t easy; everyone thinks it’s easy, you have to think about what contents to write that will help others and get your readers interested enough to subscribe to the blog to get a notification for when you have written some new ones.

I found creating new contents tricky.  In the beginning, my blog was all about the treatments I offered, so I stopped.

I found driving traffic to my blog hard. I used to think everyone else seemed to have cracked this blogging market, and it caused me stress and writers’ block.

I deleted my beauty blog and started a new, writing about working from home and the struggles one faces with attracting new clients. Gave me a platform that connected with many people who work from home who are also in the same situation as me, this allowed me to share what I have learned in my journey to working from home. I started seeming people visiting my blog, read it and like the contents.

I wanted to increase my readership, so I decided to think outside of my comfort zone. The fastest way I have found in driving traffic to my blog has been recycling old contacts.

I lost touch with many people I knew other the years; you can call me old fashion, but I have always kept everyone’s email address and numbers.

Just think of all the people you knew back when you were in school, college, university or at work. You already have a big audience to start your campaign.

Write to them and ask them if they could read your blog if their like to subscribe for free. And you invite your subscribers from your blog to other social media that’s connected to your blog.

Should a man shave or wax all his hairy body?

Should a man shave or wax all his hairy body? Is it normal? Not long ago, a man with the hairy body was seen as sexy. It was rare to see a man in a beauty salon getting waxing or shaving their hairy body. They couldn’t care less about it or finding the time to shave or wax and much less the searching through for somewhere to pay to have it done. In the days long gone a man, would go to a barber get a trim or the hair on his head cut. They were some men who did shave or wax their hairy body the religious reasons; something about getting closer to God. In some religious culture; a hairy body was considered unclean. Nowadays, man would have his body hair removed because all his mates have hair-free or a partner doesn’t like the feel of the hair in their body. Do you think men should shave or wax all their body hair?

Men’s Reaction to Intimate Waxing

When I first started male waxing; it was all about removing unwanted chest or back hair; for gym-goers or summer bodies.

But in recent years I have noticed an increase in intimate male waxing being advertised everywhere, for this reason, salons and self-employed beauty therapists like myself are getting enquires from more confident male clients who know what they are booking ‘male intimate waxing.’ The internet is full of information about the various intimate waxing treatments available out there: back sack & crack (BSC), male Brazilian/ Hollywood.

My clients sometimes know more than me, but one question I get asked by men who contact me for waxing is; does penis waxing hurt?  Yes; intimate waxing will hurt. The pain will depend on various factors, but I have noticed men who are experiencing depression at the time of receiving waxing seem to struggle to cope with it. Even there; they have had waxing in that area before, the pain seems to be unbearable when they are struggling with personal or work-related problems. Compare to when they visit my treatment room when they state of my is in a happy mood.

Hair Free Body Experience; Waxing

If you have any questions or want to share something about your waxing experience, feel free to share it on the comment below.
Somewhere in between childhood and our teenage years, we had very little concern about how our body hair would affect our confidence. We look at the gorgeous celebrities magazine photos laying on the sunbeds or wearing fabulous bikini or swimwear that we would love for just one second try on ourselves, but we have one big problem; for some of us, our body hair make us so conscious we avoid wearing specific outfit, the hair in our body for some may be very coarse and no matter how many times we shaving or how many times we use the hair removal creams it just grow back within a few days, the frustration leaves many us to not bother and wear clothes to avoid the embarrassment of showing off our beautiful bodies to our partners.


Before I started getting waxing, I was scared, but I couldn’t cope with the frustrated of having to shave my legs every few days and scratching the area I had cut. When I go for a waxing treatment for me it’s a therapeutic experience; I get to chat with my therapist and waxing is painful, yes but when I look at my smooth legs; I feel like a million-dollar lol the only drawback I have when it comes to waxing, was my dark skin complexion it is sometimes difficult for some therapist spot all the hairs that need removing, so when I get home to get cleaned up I sometimes spot some hairy bits, it’s what inspired me to focus waxing others with darker skin complexion.
Here is why waxing is one of the best ways to remove unwanted hair:
Waxing is an effective way to pull your unwanted hair from the roots which shaving, supermarket hair removal creams currently don’t, getting your unwanted hair waxed means that it would last longer than just a few days. I like I say to my clients the speed in which the hair will grow back will depend on each person and the area that they had waxed; generally speaking, your unwanted hair would grow back between 2 to 6 weeks.
In my opinion a few hours of waxing pain is totally worth it especially when you will be walking around hair-free for that long and it’s will boost your confidence when you go to the gym if you had chest hair removed and want to remove that t-shirt (guys) or wear a cute bikini by the pool (ladies) are better options than shaving every couple of days. When you wax your unwanted hair, it does a few things to your skin, it removes the top layer of dead skin cells which exfoliates and leaving your skin smooth.
I would love to say that waxing isn’t a permanent way to get rid of your unwanted hair, but I’m not a scientist all I can say is that your hair after serval waxing treatment would grow less than before.

What do you need to start your beauty business from home? Part 1

This blog post is a checklist of things that you need to start considering starting your beauty business at home.

Anyone, can start a beauty business from home, buy a couch and a few things from your local supermarkets but if you really want to set up a successful beauty business from your home after you have invested time and money at the beauty school than getting things right in the early stages of your business venture is very important.

I have been running my beauty business from home for many years; I qualified in 2005 as a waxing therapist and moved on to invest in training as a beauty specialist in 2007.

Massage Imperial® Deluxe Lightweight Ivory White 3-Section Portable Massage Table Couch Bed Reiki

Here are just a few the things I believe are essential for you to start your successful beauty business from home

  1. Suitable Room

When I first started offering treatment in my early days, I only treated women, and I had baby, so to me at the time, my spare bedroom was ideal, I was able to go check on baby sleeping next door, while my client will lay on the couch with face mask on or waiting for the nails to dry. As my business grows and I moved my business to our dining room as I started to accept both male and female, and I personally didn’t feel comfortable having men going upstairs. So, before you begin buying your equipment, you need to think very carefully about whether your home is the right places to work and if you will get complaints from your neighbours. If you are renting your home if your landlord will allow it? Will the equipment you need to fit in your treatment room?
My beauty room (dining room) is near my front door and the spare toilet. Ask yourself this question if you were your client, how would you feel when are you walking to this house to get your treatment? My front door and the small hallway are fundamental, no photos of my family, décor is natural. I have numbered the doors in my house so my clients know which room they can enter, and which are forbidden.
It is easy for a client to ask to use the toilet and go opening various doors before finding the right one.
After you have sorted out which room you will use for your treatments. In my personal experience keep that room separate and only for treatments will make your life a lot easier than what I have heard other therapists do; using the treatment rooms a living spaces once they finished with their treatments by flooding the treatments couch, put the procedures produces away this arrangement doesn’t always work well, and it’s frustrating especially if you have clients and can’t find the nail polishes or the body massage cream because one of your family members has borrowed without your knowledge. Your new treatment room must remain in a treatment room if you’re serious about your business adventure. And keep it private and tell your family, especially kids, that they can’t just wander in the treatment to grab stuff. I work during school hours and finish when my kids finish school so I can do my school runs. My kids know that the beauty room is not allowed unless they ask for permission to get something they really need. I’m lucky that I have three toilets in my home, so one is for my clients and visitors; you need to work out if you have toilet facilities.
The next important thing is what’s your area like; do you need the beauty treatments you’re going to offer? Do you see any competition from other therapist and salons?

 

Thank you, and I look forward to reading your comments and don’t forget to read part 2 of this article.
