Getting the word out about your services and getting noticed in the increasingly competitive day spa industry in Cayman requires a focused strategy. Digital marketing is the key to getting noticed and attracting customers. Here are some highly effective, low-cost ideas to help your day spa grow in Cayman.
Leverage the Power of the Internet
Internet marketing is the one of the most effective and least expensive ways to reach current and new customers. Choose your online marketing tools carefully and understand the demographic you are targeting.
Build a Website
Let consumers know all about you and your services before they arrive at your day spa. Develop an attractive, easy-to-navigate and interactive website that engages the consumer.
What are some essentials for a website?
- Services and products
- Contact details
- A brief description of your day spa/history
- Staff bios/experience
Adopt Local SEO
By optimising Local SEO strategy, your day spa will appear in search engine results when people search for the service near your location. The results will appear on your search engine as shown below:
List on various online directories and apps like the Google My Business listing, Yelp and Foursquare. To learn more, check out our step-by-step guide to Local SEO.
Take it to Social Media
Social media marketing is a free, easy and efficient way to get the word out. Create a page on Facebook, and an account on Twitter and Instagram to increase awareness about your day spa. Post engaging content and keep your audience updated and aware of offers, services and discounts.
Reach Out to Your Audience
When you introduce new offers, success depends on how effectively they have been communicated to the potential audience. Below are some methods to help you communicate, increase the number of followers and build goodwill:
Email a monthly newsletter to your clients that includes testimonials, special offers and discounts. The newsletter is a great way to stay in touch, let clients knows about new or updated services and other day spa “news.”
Content is king. Create a blog for your brand and post articles that include tips and product reviews related to your spa service. The blog will represent the personality of your spa and helps gain extra attention from the audience.
Have a friend who is into a salon business or even a restaurant? Call them now! Cross promotion can help both of you. For example, perhaps your day spa and the restaurant will both offer a 10 percent discount -- say, on a massage and on a dinner - if the customer buys both on the same day. This is a winning combination for you, your partner and the customer.
Make your Customer’s Visit Special
At the end of the day, it’s your service that retains customers. Below are some ways you can reward them:
Reward the Loyal
Offer discounts or create a rewards system. This will encourage repeat visits and brand loyalty.
Have you come across clearance sales or airline ticket sales at the last minute? Some people wait for such “bargain” sales, and if you have customers who like to sign up for services at the last minute as their schedules permit, this is a way to draw them in.
Enhance your network by starting a referral program. This is a great way to attract new business. Offer incentives, such as a discount on a service for the client and his/her referral. Make sure the scheme is communicated effectively.
