Timing is everything…well it’s not everything but this defiantly matters and will have an impact on the response you get back from it.

  1. When sending SMS via salon iQ make sure you keep the message within 160 characters, anything over will cost you 2 credits (2 texts)
  2. Send your SMS the morning of the event – it will be fresh in their minds to act on straight away
  3. Send your email a around 8am – 9am mid week, 2 – 3 days before the day – the exact time does spend on your target audience
