Spas & Salons: Clients need to find you before you can help them find their style
If you own a spa or salon, you know that your clients have options. It’s up to them to decide on which looks, styles, and treatments – and any combination of the three – they want when they visit your business. Catering to their desires and helping them find their look is the best way for you to keep them coming back again and again.
However, if you want to help them find their look, the first thing you need to do is help them find you. Because when it comes to search, they also have many options. There are different search engines and review sites for them to discover your business and your price list. And, if they don’t discover yours, they’ll find your competitor down the street.
So it’s important to put your business details – think address, phone number, business hours, a detailed description and your price list – on the top sites and apps that people turn to when deciding on which salon or spa to visit. This includes big players like Google, Yelp, Facebook and Foursquare, as well as more regional and beauty-specific sites and apps.
Consider these statistics:
- Google “near me” searches have increased by two times over the past year.
- 49% of local searches occur without a specific business in mind
- 72% of consumers who did a local search visited a location within five miles.
- 87% of smartphone owners make a search engine inquiry at least once a day
- 97% of smartphone users use a search engine on their mobile device at least once per week
