Different Shapes of the On Demand Beauty Model
So far it has been established that the industry dynamics are making the concept viable for both the end users and suppliers offering their services to boost the on-demand model. Let us also understand the different shapes of the on-demand beauty service model. The beautician business model can have two shapes both on demand and on Site.
First Model – Resemble the Beauty Service App concept where you tap the button and select the service you like and someone comes to your door in about an hour and delivers you the service. Here the end user is not bothered who comes to the door and provides the service. The feasibility of this home service model is based on three factors stating standardization of services, standardization of pricing and payment methods and prompt service delivery.
Service standardization– Here the quality of service provided by the freelancers has to be top notch to maintain standards and have a happy customer to have repeat business. These platforms have serious boarding procedures where the freelancer or a stylish professional on board because of his talent and skilled work.
Standard Pricing– The prices are predefined on the App for each service you select and are reasonable to what you spend in a beauty salon there are no strings attached.
Prompt service– As soon as the request is generated by you over the App it starts reflecting on the freelancer’s mobile screen or anyone who has registered to offer beauty service. The standing request can easily be fulfilled because the app will start floating the request to all in the vicinity and someone who is just waiting for work would accept your request. The service would get more prompt with demand in the service.
The second Model– In this on-demand model the service provider or the freelancer may not be attached to the model and may use the platform to fill in the empty slots in their daily routine. What happens in this model is that the end user selects from among the professionals or freelancers available based on their profile, service provided, pricing and reviews. This is in contrast to model one where the platform dispatches the freelancer once the predefined criteria match the requirement.
The important requirement for the culmination of the on demand beauty apps is the review mechanism which should be solid at the recruitment level and at the end user level. Most of the startup companies providing home based on demand services have initiated reference check, profile scrutiny, skill test and in-house training of the professionals on board to have repeat customer and good reviews. A good review from the end user provides positive support to the skill and safety aspect of the user.
