Shortcuts Software is launching Top Tips, a free email subscription with business tips from a global network of industry professionals, on 1 January 2010.

The first Top Tip will be available to all industry professionals, including salon and spa owners, and other business consultants.

The company says that Top Tips allows industry professionals to link up to a global network of colleagues who will give business tips, which help their business grow and become more successful.

Among the contributors to the Top Tips email campaign are business leaders including the National Small Business Champion, Skinology’s Gay Wardle, to Hair Expo’s Salon Team of the Year, Jayne Wild, to young apprentices who have tips which can bring their relationship and service to the next level.

A Top Tip will be selected each month and published on the Top Tips blog and emailed to all industry professionals who have signed up to the Top Tips email.

Shortcuts Software’s global marketing manager, Valorie Reavis, said Top Tips will be introduced to Australia following the success in USA, as Top Tips proved to be a great asset.

“The tips will be open to all hair and beauty professionals, not just Shortcuts clients,” Miss Reavis said. “This membership is open to all members of the industry and is purely about general business performance, hair and beauty professionals have really embraced this opportunity to connect with their peers and pick up tips which can be simple as how to greet their clients.”

The email subscription will be an Australian first, following its success in the United States and United Kingdom.
