1 – How to become an image consultant and succeed in your career?
Invest in quality training, complete and with a methodology updated to market demands such as our Image Consulting Master Diploma Course. Another important point is that this courses offers you all the material included so that you can put the content into practice and meet your customers needs.
All of this, of course, without you incurring finance charges that were not planned.
In this case, we advise you to search on the courses of our School which is complete and has material exclusive.
2 – Have a professional support network and be in contact with consultants already active.
They can be great partners for your company, don’t see them as competitors. Have a support to heal all your
professional doubts are very important to you feel secure and find real support for your needs. AT ESR, we have
WhatsApp groups organized by region, with the presence of local ambassadors, experienced consultants, teachers
available for questions and many opportunities to be present. In addition, we offer a free monthly lesson with teachers, grouping students together to answer all doubts they can have. It’s like group mentoring, where you can learn even more with the doubts of colleagues or with the slightest need healed.
3 – Go to practice.
Maybe with family, friends, maybe trade in or charge an initial amount that you feel comfortable with. There’s no how to be an image consultant without “eye training”, “active listening” and so many other skills that require practice to perfect.
There is no way to be an image consultant who only learns theory!
4 – Act differently.
Offer your creative services, stay tuned to your request and work on your social networks. Do not offer just one type of
package or service. Think about different niches such as luxury. How can you operate in retail? What is to serve a group of women through a different dynamic? Think about it.
5 – Make partnerships.
Think about your network and think about the people to whom you can offer your services, or some of them.
Digital influencers whose audience is the same as you may be good partners. How about an exchange of disclosure advice?
This nutritionist you know, how can you partner with her, something different for the network of customers it already has? And the aesthetic you frequent? What can we offer these customers? Make a script via your calendar, your Instagram contacts and your card which are the professionals who best match your target audience and who, in return, they will have potential
customers for you. Book a coffee, talk about your ideas, be open to listen the needs and people’s pain and “_voilá_”!
A promising partnership can emerge during these meetings. It is important to think like an entrepreneur, because from the time you embark on a career as an image consultant, you takes over the “reins” of this new business, even if you are the only employee. And if you’ve never undertaken it, don’t worry, it’s still possible to learn.Roll up your sleeves, don’t be lazy and don’t letting fear stop you, these are great tips to help you on this career path.
At ESR, we offer support in all these stages. We are proud that the students who trusted us and start this incredible journey with us, can get all the help and encouragement they need and are working constantly in this growing market.
Good luck, good deeds and count on us!
