Allowing clients to “check-in” to your salon when they arrive is an incredible marketing tool – and its free to create and use!
Before we delve into the detail of check-ins for Salons you will need beforehand –
- A good Facebook Salon Page (not Profile) with content, posts and Fans. Get a free guide if you need help with this 1st step
- You also need to Create and Claim your Salon’s Place on Facebook – click the link to learn how.
A “check-in” is the process in which a client of your Salon broadcasts on their Social Network (Facebook) “I am here”.
Using their mobile phone they find your Salon Place (it will know where they are using Geolocation) and “announce” themselves. This sends a Status Update to all their Facebook Friends which they see in their Newsfeed.
Your clients can add a message to the Update, so an example may be – “Paula is at Hair Today. Getting a great cut and a 10% check-in discount”
The blue link is automatically inserted as a link to your Salons Facebook Page.
Not only can clients check-in to your salon – they can also see which Friends have been to your “Place”and their comments.
