A better way to use Discount Vouchers to attract new salon clients

Examples of using Discount Vouchers to attract new salon clients.
A chain of 4 salons in Liverpool in the UK offered a salon discount voucher to target Students in their area. Almost 1,500 vouchers were downloaded in 2 months.
A salon in Northampton in the UK offered a 50% discount voucher for new clients. in less than 3 months the voucher was downloaded 318 times by new clients.
