Text Marketer has seen a big increase in the number of independent hair and beauty salons that are using bulks SMS to communicate with their customers. SMS is very cost effective and has the advantage getting the message straight to the customer’s phone, wherever they happen to be.
Most salons are sending appointment reminders as a great way of reducing the number of ‘no shows’. Also popular is sending out texts with a specific offer to tempt customers to book an appointment.
Jayne Mahal, owner of Health and Beauty Bar in Nottingham, who has been using Text Marketer for 6 months said that sending text offers was incredibly successful.
“We sent out an offer to 213 of our customers last Tuesday when the bookings for the week were looking a bit down. From that text, we booked in 12 appointments. We worked out that the cost of sending the texts out was £31.74 (4.9 pence per text), so the first appointment easily covered the cost of the whole campaign.”
The dramatic rise in salons using the bulk texting service is mainly due to the lower costs that Text Marketer offers its customers. Text Marketer’s prices are between 34% and 55% cheaper than its competitors for salons buying a block of 100 text credits.
One Text Marketer customer Collin UK, a supplier to UK beauty salons decided to mention the text service on its company blog site.
“Text messaging can be used for just about anything…reminding a customer of their appointment, sending out details of promotions, sending out details of available “cancellation” spaces, getting back in touch with old clients… the list goes on and everyone I know loves getting texts
