Fresha thinking

Are you in the market for switching up your booking system and maybe giving your salon an extra bit of publicity while you’re at it? In a world where appointment booking apps are now becoming the norm, we know that finding the right solution for you, your team and your salon can be tricky. So, allow us to introduce Fresha – (formerly known as Shedul) – It’s an innovative booking software app and website that’s completely free for partners to sign up to (yes, you read that correctly), and includes a salon management and marketing platform, as well as lots of free-to-use tools.

In short: Fresha and its features are pretty game-changing. And here’s why..

The Fresha Marketplace feature, for example, connects salons and spas to millions of consumers. This provides potential clients with the ultimate search engine, allowing them to find your salon and book in, hassle-free. It’s a great tool to raise awareness and generate interest in your business too. CEO and founder William Zeqiri says; “We’ve already processed over 250 million appointments worldwide and the Fresha Marketplace feature allows partners to promote their business, attract new clients and exceed their commercial potential.”

Partners can also use the software for other features like managing appointments and protecting incomes, all whilst feeling safe in the knowledge that clients will be sent automated text reminders for protection from no-shows. Fully integrated reporting, POS and unlimited inventory are also included. It’s your one-stop shop for making everyone’s lives just that little bit easier, without having to pay a penny. What’s the catch? Oh trust us when we say we’ve been looking for one but, honestly, there isn’t one. “Our business grows as salons attract more clients and generate more revenue,” explains co-founder of Fresha, Nick Miller. “Salon businesses should only pay for software when it’s working for them and this partnership means that we collaborate and grow alongside our partners.” 

We think it might just be the answer to all your salon organisation prayers. You can join Fresha for free now by visiting
