The story of salonguru

How we created the world leader in salon and clinic digital marketing.

Starting with just 1 website and expanding to countless social media campaigns, Google search domination, and clients throughout the world.

Our past
salonguru was formed by our MD Phil Evans almost 20 years ago, and we quickly established ourselves as the world leader in websites for salons and clinics in the hair & beauty industry. We have launched over 300 sites over two decades and in every part of the English-speaking world.

Our unrivalled expertise in designing and creating the best websites naturally led us into related areas of online marketing. Our award-winning websites became the cornerstone of a broad range of digital marketing skills, focusing on all the tools the internet offers to give our salons and clinics more clients and income.

2 decades of award winning websites marketing
We now support over 230 salons and clinics worldwide

Our present
We now support over 230 salons and clinics worldwide and our role is to help solve their daily pressures like finding more clients, employing skilled staff and promoting key services. We do that by offering world-beating expertise in ALL the tools the internet offers to grow a business quickly in the short and long term.

Our unrivalled expertise now includes: websites, SEO, recruitment campaigns, Google Profiles, social media growth, online shops, booking integration, gift vouchers, email newsletters, blog posts, social media adverts, Google Adwords ..... and a great deal more.

We are their highly skilled marketing department and irreplaceable in-house guru for all our clients.

Our future
The greatest challenge of the internet is the constant change. It is also the greatest opportunity, as most salons and clinics do not invest to stay ahead of the competition. That is our role as the digital marketing expert for our clients.

Every year we need to add new skills as social media platforms evolve and new ones launch, and also engineer our client's online presence as Google algorithm changes. Artificial Intelligence's growth will also revolutionise how the internet works in the coming decade. But our clients rest easy knowing that they employ the best salon marketing expert in the world.

Meet the gurus

salonguru is a collective of highly-skilled people with the experience and knowledge needed to create the best salon websites and marketing in the world.

We differ from other website design companies in that we specialise in hair, beauty and aesthetics salons.  Phil Evans leads a team of global experts, or ‘gurus’ who not only have key skills in their chosen field, but have all developed a vast knowledge of the hair and beauty sectors to ensure we create the best salon websites for content, SEO and functionality.

Your website will reflect your brand and showcase your business and our gurus will work alongside your team after your website is launched to deliver online marketing initiatives to make your salon business more money!
