GET BUSY OVER THE FESTIVE SEASON
Boosting your business during the Christmas season can be both festive and profitable. This is one of the busiest periods of the year, leaving us on the 24th feeling like we need a month to recoup. This makes it even more important to not only enjoy the period, but to maximise on every aspect of it. We thought we would put together a list of things you could try this holiday period.
Here is a rapid list of top Christmas ideas to help you not only attract new clients for the season, but ensure that you are teeing up for the new year whilst maximising on sales.
Holiday Packages and Promotions: Create special holiday packages that include hair services, treatments, and products. Offer discounted rates for bundled services or exclusive holiday promotions.
Festive Decorations: Decorate your salon with Christmas-themed decorations to create a festive atmosphere. Offer holiday-themed refreshments to enhance your clients experience.
Gift Cards and Vouchers: Promote gift cards as ideal Christmas presents for loved ones. Offer discounts or complimentary services with the purchase of gift cards. This helps your clients with present ideas and bookings for 2024.
Themed Styling: Introduce festive hairstyles or hair colours that are popular during the holiday season. Host a holiday-themed styling event showcasing your salon’s expertise.
Collaborate with Local Businesses: Partner with nearby businesses for cross-promotions, such as discounts on salon services with a purchase from a neighbouring store. Consider collaborating with a local boutique for joint promotions.
Social Media Campaigns: Launch holiday-themed social media campaigns featuring your salon’s Christmas offerings. Encourage clients to share their holiday looks and experiences, possibly with a branded hashtag.
Loyalty Programs:Introduce a holiday-themed loyalty program with rewards for repeat visits during the festive season. Offer exclusive discounts or freebies for loyal clients.
Charity Events: Host a charity event or donation drive, where a percentage of the proceeds goes to a local charity. Promote the event to attract clients who want to support a good cause.
Online Booking and Gift Purchases: Simplify the booking process with an online system to accommodate last-minute appointments. Allow clients to purchase gift cards or holiday packages directly through your website.
Customer Appreciation Events: Host a special event to show appreciation to your clients with discounts, treats, or small gifts. This can foster loyalty and positive word-of-mouth.
Email Marketing Campaigns: Send out targeted email campaigns promoting your Christmas specials and events. Include festive visuals and compelling offers to entice clients to book appointments.
