Social Media Tip For Spas: Encourage User-Generated Content

October 07,2019 | BY: Kristin Jones

One key benefit social media has over many other types of marketing is its ability to engage followers in an interactive way. It is not just a passive medium.

And by engaging followers, you not only increase their involvement with your page, but also expand your exposure to others as their own contacts see when they like, comment or share your content.

Social Media Tip For Spas: Blend Online With Offline

September 23,2019 | BY: Kristin Jones

It can be easy at times to focus on just one marketing channel at a time—focusing on your local media advertising when the TV or newspaper ad salesperson knocks on the door, but thinking about something totally different when you sit down to dedicate time to social media.

The problem is that when you do that, without considering an overarching marketing strategy, you may send mixed messages, or at the least, lose out on opportunities to make each of your channels work more effectively by building off the others.

September 04,2019 | BY: Kristin Jones

When was the last time you scrolled through your Facebook feed and saw an image that just wasn’t right. Maybe it was a profile photo on an account that awkwardly chopped off the top of someone’s head. Or maybe it was like these “postcards” from a page I like, but am constantly frustrated by:

Social Media Tip For Spas: Know When Your Followers Are Online

August 26,2019 | BY: Kristin Jones

You already know that social media posts have a fleeting lifespan (Get More From Your Content: 21 Life-Lengthening Tips), so it is important to not only post frequently, but to target your posts to the time of day your followers and target market is most likely to be using social media.


If your social media accounts are well-established, the best strategy to follow is to use the insights available through both Facebook and Instagram to see when your specific accounts get the most traffic and when your followers are most active, both by days of the weeks and by time of day.

Social Media Tip For Spas: Post Frequently

August 12,2019 | BY: Kristin Jones

Social media is a fast-moving medium. Unlike a billboard, which is there for days or weeks at a time for all passing motorists to see, a social media post is fleeting. The half-life (or the time it takes a for a social media post to achieve half of the total views it will acquire) can be less than a half-hour on some platforms.

Social Media Tip For Spas: Be Where Your Audience Is

July 29,2019 | BY: Kristin Jones

As a spa owner, you only have so much time available to manage your marketing efforts because you are also juggling dozens of other management tasks from ordering supplies and greeting clients to setting up schedules and, possibly, making sure the garbage is taken out at the end of the day.

Instead, focus your energy on the top networks your best customers are using.

In most cases, that will be Facebook (used by nearly 3 of 4 American adults), and Instagram (used by more than half of all young adults under age 30, an age group less active on Facebook).
