Encourage reviews with rewards
One of the greatest advertising tools any company can have is word of mouth. Word of mouth advertising costs you absolutely nothing, and it reaps benefits for months and years to come.
Marketing your salon suite does not have to be costly.
One way to achieve “free advertising” is to encourage your existing customers to write a good review for you on your website. You can do this by offering ten percent off of their next hair styling session. People read reviews online; for very little in the way of cost, you can increase your positive reviews and thus increase business.
Send e-mails and newsletter
You have a customer list. Put it to work for you. Send out a weekly or monthly e-mail and/or newsletter. This email/ newsletter can be filled with helpful beauty tips. Your customers will be appreciative and they will most likely tell their friends about your salon booth business.
Happy Birthday to you!
Show your existing customers that you care. Sending a Happy Birthday email to them will be a small but meaningful gesture. Trust us, they will remember, and they will most likely tell others about your gesture. You not only will hold onto an existing customer but you will gain word-of-mouth advertising. You can take it a step further and offer a discount for their next salon suite visit.
Customer Loyalty Program
You see them in many businesses now . . . customer loyalty programs! It goes like this: nine visits to your hair salon suite and you get the tenth visit for free, or the tenth visit for half-off. Yes, you are giving away your service for free, but the goodwill which is generated by this program is invaluable.
Keep your eyes open for fundraising events like a school trying to raise money for a new gymnasium. Oftentimes they will have auctions or raffles. Donate your services for the cause. Of course you are giving something away and of course that is an expense, but you will most likely gain a new customer in the process. Look at it this way: you gain twenty future sessions by giving away one.
That’s not a bad deal at all!
