STAMP 2018: The SpaCanna Escape

Stacey Soble | September 19, 2018 | 9:03 AM

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 incorporation of an overall campaign in SALON TODAY's STAMP competition.

Habitude
Seattle, Washington
Owner: Inez Gray
Apothecanna’s philosophy, aromas and textures perfectly resonated with the Habitude guest, so Inez Gray determined 4/20 was the perfect date to co-brand with the cannabis-derived line on a Mother’s Day campaign, because “What do Moms need more than weed cream?” The spa sold more than $45,000 worth of gift cards, attributing its success to the controversial and exciting campaign.

“Seattle was ready for a cannabis spa, and we are proud to say we are the first offering these amazing healing services,” Inez Gray says. “One of the most unexpected returns on our investment is the effect it is having on our massage therapists—they are raving about the personal benefits they are feeling in their hands and arms as a result of using the products all day.”

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!)

Marketing Campaigns from the Heart

Stacey Soble | August 22, 2018

When salon owners design marketing campaigns with the community at heart, their salon culture extends beyond the staff. For example, Nurtur Salon develops a teacher-focused campaign after the school shootings in Parkland, Florida, and JUUT develops a blog that spotlights working moms on their team.
