Get Your Copy: The Salon Owner's Ultimate Guide to Facebook



Phorest has just released a new ebook – The Salon Owner’s Ultimate Guide to Facebook. We’ve put this together so you can master the social networking behemoth and see a real return in clients, profits and referrals  for all your hard work and creativity.

Normally it costs £12.99, but if you’re reading this post all you have to do to get your free copy is to click right here.


Here’s an example of some of the nuggets you’ll find inside the Salon Owner’s Ultimate Guide to Facebook ebook: 

Who are you actually talking to?

What age is your Facebook audience? Are they mainly male or female? For instance we know that 80% of the Phorest Facebook page’s audience is female with the majority aged between 25 and 34. So it’d be wise to aim most of our posts at people of that age.

To find out who you are talking to, go to your salon profile page when you are logged into Facebook. Click on ‘see insights’ at the top.

Click on the ‘people’ tab as per below and see the male/female breakdown plus main age group.  Well done.  Now you know who your main audience is!

Facebook Audience

When are they online?

The second thing you need to understand, is when this audience is online. You may put up a piece of content that has you thinking ‘Great, they’re going to love this!’ only to find it fade away with no likes or shares. To learn when you should be posting, go into your insights and click on ‘posts’ (tab beside people). The first chart at the top you’ll see tells us that for Phorest, there is more people online on a Thursday  (1) than any other day, and 10pm (2) is the best time to post.

Times of posting


Much more to learn: 

The above tips are just two of almost 30 Facebook ‘reveals’ in the Salon Owner’s Ultimate Guide to Facebook ebook. We teach you everything from moving a personal page over to a likes page; the dark art of Facebook advertising and if it’s suitable for your salon; and the types of content that work, don’t work and how to measure their success.

    I’m trying to choose between you, and….who should I pick? Why is your system better?

    • Hi Anna, multiple reasons:

      – We are the only one of these softwares that provides you with a salon-branded app:

      – we also give you booking widget for your website and you can take bookings through Facebook

      – our online booking is real-time (through app, website or facebook page) i.e. it doesn’t just send you an email and you manually input it, it knows what stylists/therapists are busy and what slots are available meaning people can book in 24/7 without you intervening (it does not expose you appointment book to clients)

      – We role out updates to the system every six weeks – we have a thing called user voice on the system where salon owners suggest a feature and then other salon owners vote for the best ideas. The most popular suggestions make it through

      – we provide you with comprehensive training called ‘the Phorest Journey’ where it brings you from basic system training to understanding your reports and mastering your marketing and loyalty

      – We have support from 9am-6pm six days a week and have won many awards including BABTAC customer service award;

      – We give your staff an app so they can check and make appointments on the move (unless of course your restrict access to view-only). You can also use your iPad or iPhone to pay up during busy times

      There’s so many reasons Anna. We’d love if you dropped your details to letsgrow(at) or click on the free demo button below and we’ll get in touch with more details.

      ps. here’s a completely independent guide on someone who moved over to us. It should help you make the right choice:
