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 ways salons leverage marketing 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.
Here is the winner of the best Single Creative Social Media Post in SALON TODAY's STAMP competition.
Owner: Scott Buchanan
Sometimes an opportunity arises to have fun with clients in ways that don’t involve doing their hair. Scott J decided to leverage the spirit of April Fool’s Day with this tongue-in-cheek post, ‘debuting’ their newest salon: Dogue, for the discerning canine.
“The post was well-loved and reached more than 2,150 followers,” Buchanan says.
This is one of only one of 31 marketing ideas featured in Salon Today's September/October S.T.A.M.P. issue. See the others here. (Coming Soon!)
