Summer SMS Marketing Campaign

Hair and beauty salon sms campaign Hair and beauty salon SMS Campaign

This time last month we were unbelievably excited yet also a little anxious in the re-opening of our salons.

I am sure you have been rushed off your feet and embracing the new social distancing rules you have in place in your salon.

– Have you had your peak in the salon and starting to now see a slight decrease in the number of bookings? 

– Are you starting to see a few gaps appear here and there in your appointment book?

We are launching SalonIQ’s 6 week summer SMS campaign, giving you ideas in reaching out to all your clients you may not have yet seen since 4th July. 

Lets continue as we started 4 weeks ago, keep our focus on that rebooking %, look for opportunities to up-sell services and be one step ahead on filling empty space.

EACH WEEK WE WILL POST A BRAND NEW CLIENT SELECTION ALONG WITH EXAMPLES FOR YOU TO USE AS YOU WISH IN YOUR SALON!

Week 1 SMS – wc 3rd August 2020

On SalonIQ go to main menu > Communication > Client selection > Add selection > Drag the filter ‘Last visit’ > Custom date range 01/01/2020 – 24/03/2020 > Drag the filter ‘No future bookings’ > Click ‘Save & Get client count

Once you have done this you will see the number of clients that had an appointment with you between those dates but have not returned to the salon since and do not currently have any future bookings. 

SMS examples 

“We have appointments available and would love to see you soon, call 01234 567890 to book”

“We miss you! Call 01234 567890 to book your appointment”

“The salon is safe and the mad rush is over, Call 01234 567890 to book your appointment.

“Book your next appointment now call 01234 567890, limited availability”

Remember to keep a close eye on the number of characters you use within your SMS. Anything over 160 characters will count as 2 credits (2 SMS).

Week 2 SMS – 10th August 2020

This week we will be focusing on your clients who had an appointment with you November 2019 – January 2020 with no future booking and have not yet returned.

It may seem like a long time ago, however sometimes all it takes is a little reminder for them to pick up the phone and book.

Go to Main menu > Intelligent Marketing > Client Selection > Add Selection > Use filters ‘Last visit’ and are the date range 1st November 2019 – 31st January 2020 > Use filter ‘No future bookings’ > Click ‘Save & Get client count

Once you have done this you will see the number of clients that had an appointment with you between those dates but have not returned to the salon since and do not currently have any future bookings. 

Please keep a close eye on the number of characters you are using within your SMS, the more characters you use the more it will cost. The total cost will show before you need to be press the ‘send’ button. 

SalonIQ SMS campaignWeek 3 SMS / Email –  17th August 2020

Our third week of our Summer SMS Campaign already!

It’s time to now re-focus on clients who had an appointment with you January to March but have not got a future appointment booked in.

On V2 (Hub) go to main menu > Intelligent marketing > Client selection > Add selection > Blank template > Sue the filter ‘Had service’ make date range 01/01/2020 – 31/03/2020 > Use filter ‘No future bookings’ > Click ‘Save & Get client count’ 

Once you have your selection you will be able to see how many clients have not yet returned to you since March.

If you want to spice things up a little on this weeks selection and be a little more specific with focusing on a particular service? Sow thin your client selection instead of costing on ‘All services’ why not focus on one particular services. For hair salons you could look at clients that had a colour between January and March but have not had one since. Beauty salons you could focus on clients that had a Facial between those moths and not had one since?

If you do choose this you can then be more specific with your SMS campaign and target your clients on certain services you know they have had before.
