Marketing Ideas for Beauty Businesses

If you run a business in the beauty, hair or personal care industry, you know how important it is to stay in touch with clients and attract new ones. Building strong client relationships is an ongoing effort that isn’t confined to what happens inside the four walls of your salon.

By using connected tools to market your business and drive loyalty, you’ll be able to make sure those good clients keep coming back and that they tell their friends about you too!

Read on for some email marketing tactics that can be especially effective for beauty businesses that need a marketing makeover.

Get Started with Square Marketing

Email marketing that turns occasionals into regulars.

Create ‘always-on’ email campaigns

So you can automatically send:

  • An automatic welcome email to every new client
  • Clients a request to review your salon after a particular milestone
  • Annual timed marketing campaigns to celebrate a client’s birthday once a client has been with you for at least three months.

With automated email campaigns running in the background, you can give yourself some time back to work on your business rather than spending countless hours on emails. There are many different reasons you might want to set up automated campaigns. One example is to communicate effectively with brand new clients and make them stick.

You could have a ‘welcome’ email campaign running, with a special offer coupon for them to redeem on a follow-up visit or with a request to positively review your business on Google or Facebook if they are happy with the service. An automated campaign like this takes the grunt work out of follow-up marketing and allows your client relationships to grow from the very beginning.

Customize bespoke campaigns for your regulars

So you can…

  • Run email campaigns that will reach a targeted list that’s unique for your business, such as hair weave extension clients only
  • Send personalized messages, such as event invitations for your VIP clients

You know best what makes your clients tick. Maybe it’s the complimentary drink with their haircut or that they get every 10th treatment for free. Other clients might value being able to book a priority appointment as soon as a cancellation comes in.

With bespoke campaigns set up through Square Marketing, you can cater to every client using the smart groups feature. This targeting can make everyone who walks through your salon door feel special – even when they’re at home. It’s easy to customize any pre-built template, add limited-time coupon codes or share personalized offers that will keep your clients booking.

Give client emails a glow up

Use this when…

  • You want to add your logos and custom fonts to email templates
  • The colour and style of your marketing must match your salon branding

Long after you’ve flipped the “closed” sign on the door and swept the floors, your brand is still busy working to drive new clients to your business. Your brand is apparent through your website, social media presence, online reviews, and email communications.

With Square Marketing, you have access to all the tools needed to deliver professional-looking emails, customized with your brand elements, colours and fonts. In the beauty industry, building a strong brand can be just as important as the quality of service you provide. Now you can be confident that your brand experience will be consistent and professional at every touchpoint.
