Smarter LifeStyle Network recently announced a strategic initiative with Rosy Salon Software and SalonInteractive to open a pathway to eCommerce for salon owners on the interactive media network. The addition of eCommerce capabilities further strengthens the revenue-earning potential of salons in Smarter LifeStyle Network.
“These partnerships perfect the ability for salon owners to maximize their revenue potential, ensuring that they are leaving no stone unturned for their salon’s profitability,” says Christine Martier, president and CEO at GenOne Media Group, the parent company of the Smarter Lifestyle Network. “From the inception of Smarter LifeStyle Network, we aimed to be the ‘go-to’ business tool for salon owners. We are thrilled to partner with Rosy to provide yet another level of earning potential to an already dynamic business tool.”
The digital-out-of-home network already provides salons with the tools to deliver custom marketing messages to clients while they wait, leading to increased retail sales and service bookings, as well as providing an entirely new source of revenue from advertising that displays on tablets and televisions in the salon.
Positive Customer Impact
“Smarter LifeStyle Network takes marketing in salons and spas to a new level,” says Jim Bower, co-founder of Rosy Salon Software. “They provide the ability to touch clients where they are most likely to buy – in the salon. Now, through this partnership, we provide the ability to make that sale happen seamlessly.”
Additionally, through the SalonInteractive dashboard, salons have the power to use real-time business intelligence. The data provides analytics and analysis of salon performance, allowing owners to make corrections with immediacy, improving client satisfaction and retention.
Smarter LifeStyle Network has been responsive to customer feedback and the partnerships with Rosy and SalonInteractive solidifies the commitment to deliver the best business tool in one convenient installation.
