Money Talks (and Motivates!)



Motivate Your Staff With ProInk’s Fortune Teller!

Your employees may love your work environment and have a passion for the tattoo industry, but they’ll be gone in a heartbeat if you don’t pay them well. No matter how great your shop is, your employees will only be motivated to work hard for you if their compensation is fair and their needs are met.

So how do you meet your employee’s needs? You can cut them a check or increase their commission when they need some extra money, but that’s not good for your bottom line. Instead, try showing your artists how they can make the extra money they need by working smarter!


Transcend’s Fortune Teller can help!

Fortune Teller gives you seven major indicators of your employees’ income that you can view and modify right within the software, including:


  1. Number of Active Clients
  2. Active Client Retention
  3. New Customers Per Month
  4. New Client Retention
  5. Client’s Frequency of Visits
  6. Average Ticket (services)
  7. Average Ticket (retail)


By making subtle changes to any of these seven indicators, you can see what the real, tangible benefit will be before asking your employee to invest the time and effort into increasing these numbers. Better yet, Fortune Teller can even suggest target numbers!


motivation2For Example, let’s say your employee “Jude” needs car insurance so he requests a raise. When you pull up the Fortune Teller under Jude’s name, it shows his current trends including what he will make monthly and yearly if those trends hold true. Perhaps you will discover that his needs will be met by a current growth pattern, or perhaps a small adjustment to any of the seven income indicators shows he can make the additional income he needs with ease.

Maybe Jude’s Active Client Retention is slightly below her co-worker’s average. Raising his retention to the shop’s average will result in the raise he wants.  Jude can then focus on getting his clients to come in more often to make the extra money he needs.  Maybe Jude just needs to hit the Fortune Teller’s suggested retail ticket target to earn extra money by upselling some extra jewelry to his piercing customers.


Whatever the adjustment is, the Fortune Teller will allow you and Jude to see what the benefits will be before anybody wastes any time, effort, or money, trying to achieve these new goals. Sometimes, something as simple as getting clients to come in every 8 weeks instead of every 2 months (an increase of about a half visit a year) is all you need.

Fortune Teller will give your employees the motivation to work harder (and smarter!), while also protecting your bottom line.  Learn more about the Fortune Teller by calling 800-710-3879 or schedule a demo today!
