New Year’s Hair Resolutions! 


Yet another new year is upon us! And with another year comes the opportunity to look back on the previous year and come up with new ways and strategies to improve on and build your business. 


As a distributor of hair system products, from tapes to removers, there’s a multitude of ideas to wade through and investigate for your company’s success.  


That’s why we at Walker Tape® have come up with a few resolutions to help you succeed in 2024 and beyond. Starting with: 


Resolution #1: Offering More Complimentary Hair Systems Products


Resolution #1 is really a 3-in-1: 


1. Boosting Revenue & Customer Retention

Offering complimentary products is one of the easier ways to boost revenue and retention! Especially in the hair system industry, where there are a wide variety of products that salons and beauty stores need to complete the entire process. 


With Walker Tape®, most of our products have complimentary pieces that go with each other to allow the best success for customers everywhere. That can be pairings such as a tape and a remover, a prep product and a care product, etc. 


Having these complimentary products can be essential to your business. Get in touch with our Customer Service team to find the best product pairings that you can offer! 


2. Trying New Products

Nothing arouses customer curiosity more than brand new products to try, or the option to try different products, that could help boost their own business. 


That’s why we launched our free sample program! 


You can request free product samples to send to your customers when you place your order, or anytime you’d like! This will help to build and foster your relationship with your customers. 


Walker Tape® offers the widest variety of hair system products, and each product has a complimentary piece that helps stylists and salon owners ensure the best install experience possible. 


3. Getting an Edge on the Competition  

By offering complimentary products, you make it easier for your customers to get everything they need in one trip or if one of their favorites goes out of stock. You also offer the ability to try new products without risk, free samples of products, and provide complimentary pieces. 


With that, your customers will be more likely to come back to you to restock instead of going to a competitor. 



Resolution #2: Streamlining Your Ordering Process 


Time is money. One of the most transcendental phrases in the history of business. It’s true! That’s why Walker Tape® has made it as easy and convenient to order from us as possible. Just use these tips and tricks to streamline your ordering process: 


1. Order All of Your Flammables in One Shipment

Most, if not all, shipping companies have a flammable shipment fee that applies to all packages that include flammable products. That is why we recommend ordering all of your flammable products at once to reduce shipping costs. 

Simply dedicate a separate order to your flammable products. Having one order (of say, 1-2 boxes) of all flammable products will easily help to cut down on additional fees you may have to pay. 


2. Know Our Estimated Shipping Times

Walker Tape® products have a defined shelf life when stored correctly, which is one year for tapes and six months for liquid products. Salons and stylists also have a “work-cycle” when it comes to the hair system industry, which usually means they have a set time of when they need to reorder. 


By having your customers’ favorite products fully stocked ahead of time (before they need to re-order), you can help create a better, and easier, experience overall for them. 


That is why knowing Walker Tape®’s estimated shipping times beforehand can help meet that goal, and customer needs, and streamline your ordering process. 


3. Stay Current on Walker’s Online Pricelist

The market is volatile. Unpredictable. Who knows what global events could shake up e-commerce over the next few months? Fortunately, the hair system industry is one of the more stable, including Walker Tape®. 


Price changes, however, are still bound to happen. That’s why we’ve moved our price list online. That way you can keep up with any potential price changes and adjust your budgets and your orders accordingly. 


Our price list can be found in your customer portal on our website.  


Be sure to also check our FAQ and Resources page for more, well, resources, on shipping and ordering from Walker Tape®!  


Resolution #3: Adding New Channels to Reach Potential Customers


Distributors across the board are finding new and unique channels to market and sell their products. Social media apps have shop tabs, online commerce stores are all the rage, and there are always your standard partner stores, etc. All these channels can be tough to keep up with and manage. 


Luckily, Walker Tape® offers a channel that is both easy to use and highly valuable to helping potential customers find your business. 


Our “Find A Salon/Distributor” tool, which is made for Walker Tape® customers, puts your business on a global map for customers near you to easily find. If you’re located in London, your business will pop up in searches for anyone nearby looking to buy our products from you. 


Simply reach out to us with your business information, and we can get you added to our database ASAP. From there on, the only thing you’ll have to focus on are the potential new customers coming your way.
