Salon iQ Client Selections Webinar 29.01.2018

Our first webinar was a huge success and thank everyone who was able to join us. 

What we discussed in the webinar today:

  • How to find client selections on Salon iQ
  • How to use the filters
  • Breaking down the clients to ensure your final client selections is 100% targetted to the right people
  • How to view how many email addresses you have on your database
  • How to choose SMS or Email when contacting your clients
  • The difference between ‘New Template’ and ‘New Blank’
  • Email Manager (briefly touched on – as the next Webinar will be on  this)

Client Selections really is simple and a great salon business tool to use on a regular basis.

As we have said before selecting the right clients when sending your emails is key and really will make a difference to the results you get back from your SMS and e-blasts.

Even if you do not have any mail outs or SMS blasts planned, still take 30 minutes or so choosing certain filters to check the client count. You will be surprised at the results.

Q: Database question how do we clean up clients that haven’t been for a really long time and how to merge duplicate clients?

A: Great question! I recommend using “Client Archiving” (Main Menu > Settings > Global Settings) this will automatically archive clients who have not returned to the salon in 12 months for example. This will help clear up your database of non-returning clients.

To merge duplicate clients, go to the client screen and select either “email duplicates” or “mobile duplicates” from the pull down box. This will load all clients with duplicate details.

Tick merge, tick base client and merge button along the top to merge. This will then merge the two client cards into one.

Q: We are a new salon. What’s the cut off where emails are more cost effective than texts?

A: A general rule of thumb is statistically more people will read an SMS than an Email – I would use SMS to contact lost clients, and use Emails to for News Letters & Promotions.

Don’t forget the next webinar on Monday 5th February will be focused on Email blasts and the benefits of using it.

Q: How long can your text messages be?

A: A standard SMS message is 160 characters, this is charged at 7p. Once you go above 160 characters it will be charged for every additional 160 characters you use for example: 160 characters = 7p 320 characters = 14p

Q: Email or text? What’s better?

A: This is very subjective, both work very well in different ways, however statistically more people read an SMS than an Email. It also depends on which client information you have more of

If you have any questions at all on this area of Salon iQ please do not hesitate to contact out support team 01892 

Thank you all so much for joining us.

Remember we have our next live webinar scheduled for Monday 5th February @ 9:30am on Email Manager – we will be sending you out reminders one week before the day.

Happy a great week.
