Announcing the 2018 STAMP Winners

by Stacey Soble | August 27, 2018

Marketing is a salon’s way of telling its story in order to attract new clients and encourage existing ones to try different services from the menu. The way salons leverage marketing though to tell those stories is expanding every year, as owners sample newer vehicles like community videos, influencer programs and social media, along with more traditional methods.

SALON TODAY’s Annual Marketing Program, STAMP, puts the spotlight on fabulous marketing—ideas that have been tried in the salon environment and proven successful. By entering STAMP 2018, these winning marketing teams are willing to share those entrepreneurial ideas with you, allowing your team to put your own STAMP on it.

Below is a list of the 2018 STAMP honorees, we will be posting each one of their ideas in the coming days.
