Salon Website Marketing

Can Your Salon Profit From The Internet Without A Salon Website?

by David Glendinning · 0 comments

This is an interesting question. Come to think of it, it’s actually 2 questions…

  1. Can a Salon profit from using the Internet?
  2. Do you need a Salon website to profit from the Internet?

The fact is, there are many Salons out there that haven’t got a website. And I’m sure they’ve spent some time thinking about whether they really need one.

Let’s first look at the benefits of having a Salon website…

  • it’s a communication tool that delivers the benefits of your salon services.
  • your website appears in the search engines for a variety of keywords eg. “beauty salon”, “hair stylist”
  • once you get in the search engines you attract visitor traffic to your website as they search using the keywords
  • and once you get them to your website you can build a prospect list by capturing their name and email address
  • you can then market to these prospects to convince them to come into your Salon
  • And when they come into your Salon, you profit

But what about if you don’t have a Salon website? What can you do on the internet to be able to profit. Here’s my top 3 recommendations…

1. You could setup a Google business listing. List your business within your geographic area which results in your listing appearing in the Google search results. This is FREE to do.

This may result in prospects who search on the internet for your services, telephoning your Salon and maybe making an appointment.

2. You could create a Salon Facebook Fan page . If you spend some time to do this yourself then you could do it at no cost.

You then attract clients and prospects to your Facebook Page, provide regular updates and offers which may get them telephoning your Salon to make an appointment.

3. You could email your list of clients. You could do this using your Salon Sofwtare system or set it up within your own personal email software. You could email special offers which could then get your clients telephoning your Salon. Email Marketing for Salons can prove to
be a very profitable activity.

This is just a few of the activities you could do without the need for a Salon website.

So what’s the best option?

To me, it’s combining all the options above, based around a great functioning website that acts as an effective lead generator for new and existing clients.

But here’s the catch. Your Salon website will only be effective if it functions as a communication and marketing tool… a tool that delivers the benefits of your Salon services to your prospects and clients and automatically follows up prospects to get them into your Salon.

There are many parts to an effective salon website. And if you haven’t downloaded my FREE guide “The Ultimate Salon Website Guide – 5 Strategies To Get MORE Traffic, MORE Clients and MORE Sales From Your Salon Website”, then you should go and do it now.

Many Salon Owners balk at the idea of a website because of the cost. Personally, I think that idea is based on bad judgement, bad advice and is just a load of rubbish.

Let me explain…

Let’s say you do have an effective website that consistently gets you 5 new clients per month. Let’s then say that each of those clients spend $50 each visit (i’ve kept that low for this example), and attend your salon 8 times per year.

That’s 5 x 50 x 8 = $2,000 over the next 12 months.

Then the next month comes and the same thing happens. You gain another $2,000 over the following 12 months.

So for the next 12 months you gain 60 new clients that will spend $24,000 in your Salon in a 12 month period.

All from an effective website. That you pay for once that continues to put money in your bank account.

How much would you pay for that?

I certainly wouldn’t be too concerned over a few thousand dollars. BUT, and this is a big BUT… be sure that the website system you purchase has been proven to work. My Salon Success Website System has proven to be a profitable lead generation system for each Salon Owner that has invested in it.

Many Salon Owners make their website creation decision based on price. This is a costly mistake… because to fix it will cost you again!
