Announcing the 2016 STAMP Honorees

Stacey Soble | August 31, 2016 | 6:33 AM

When it comes to marketing, it’s not challenging to come up with an idea. Coming up with an idea that attracts the attention of your target market and propels them to take the desired action is another matter.

Grown out of one of the most popular Salon Today 200 categories, STAMP (Salon Today’s Annual Marketing Program) is a competition that offers up a bonanza of great marketing and promotion ideas that have already been tested in the salon environment and have proven their success. In show-and-tell style, STAMP honorees divulge the details on how they designed and executed their bright ideas, as well as share their outcomes.

Offered up in the spirit of beauty entrepreneurship, these marketing examples are ready for you to put your own stamp on them—as long as you’re willing to do your part and share your success with STAMP next year. Click on each link to read about the individual STAMP honoree.
