Facebook Place – put your Salon on the map

Facebook Places are becoming increasingly important for Salons as more clients use their mobile phone to connect with their Friends whilst out-and-about.

Having a Place allows your Salon to not only have a Page on Facebook but to also tie that to a physical location – and we do not mean just a postal address.

All the newer mobile phones have an inbuilt Geolocation ability – which means it knows where you are in the world to an accuracy of a few metres – and if it knows where you are, it can also show you Places of interest that are close by.

The final step is then allowing you to “check-in” at that Place and tell all your Facebook Friends “I am here and I am doing this”.

For a Salon on Facebook this means when you have your Place created and claimed you can encourage check-ins with a “Deal” or offer.

Imagine all your clients checking-in to your salon and this kind of message automatically appearing on their friends walls –

“Susan is at Trends Salon getting a new colour and a 10% Discount” – and it includes a click-able link to your Salon Facebook Page.

The average Facebook users has 130 Friends (and some have over 1,000) – so the opportunity to spread a viral message to thousands of new potential clients is incredible.
