May Day Marketing!

Tanning season is well and truly in full swing right now and what better way to keep footfall in your salon high than marketing your salon to new and existing customers? In this blog we will be sharing our best tips and tricks on how you can use different forms of marketing to help your salon stay booked and busy.

 Social Media

One of the most popular, and cost effective, ways to market your salon is through your social media accounts. For the past 10 or so years,  Instagram has been the platform of choice in the salon industry. Instagram is great for interacting with both existing and potential new customers and also sharing news regarding new offers and new products that you may be introducing.

In recent years, TikTok has also become a firm favourite amongst salon owners with many choosing to share short videos on that platform. 

Some potential video ideas for your salons TikTok could be:

·       A behind the scenes on what it takes to run and work in a salon

·       Informative videos from industry professionals educating customers on safe practices within your salon

·       Tips and tricks for how to get the most out of the services you offer

By posting on social media platforms, this gives your salon a more friendly and welcoming vibe and will encourage customers to pay you a visit.


A way you can market your salon to your existing customers and try to encourage them to keep returning to your salon is through SMS or text message marketing. Text message marketing is one of the most successful marketing channels to use with these messages getting a 98% open rate.

In Salon Trackers intelligent marketing suite you can create personalised filters and pick and choose what customers you would like to send your marketing campaigns to. 

An example of a message you could send from the intelligent marketing suite using the personalised filters is:

Filter :

Customers who haven’t had an appointment in the last three months.

Message :

Hi <<Forename>>

We miss you!

Come in the salon this bank holiday weekend for a free sachet of cream when you buy a course!



Another way you can use our intelligent marketing suite is to do email marketing . This works in a similar way to the SMS marketing where you can use the filters to choose who you want to send the email campaign to. After you have filtered out these customers you can then either connect your Mailchimp account to Salon Tracker and sent the campaign through there or you can export this list off emails into an CSV to upload into any other email marketing platform of your choice.
