The sparkliest night of the year is fast approaching and with the Christmas madness still going on, it may have slipped your mind to prepare for it. For salons and spas around the world, the coming of a new year is an amazing marketing opportunity. First, because people want to look their best going out and second, because the same people will be looking for ways to relax and rejuvenate their skin after all the excess! That’s why we’ve prepared a salon New Year’s Eve marketing toolkit – the last one in 2017!
Salon New Year’s Eve Selfie Contest
Looking to get a little more client interaction to round out the year? Why not have a selfie competition? On Instagram, have clients DM or tag you in their New Year’s Eve look (use a hashtag that includes your salon name to find who has used it more easily). That could be something like #UpperCutsNYE or simply getting them to DM you the photo with the mention “NYE look contest”.
If you’re using Phorest Salon Software, an easy way to promote this contest could be to encourage your clients to use take a #SalonSelfie along with their review. Don’t forget to remind them of adding the contest’s branded hashtag! Combine these ideas with your TreatCard loyalty program for even more incentives.
