CloseBy® Text Marketing Solutions for Salons and Spas

There are three common business problems any Salon and Spa owner could face: expiring inventory, slow days or slow seasons, and the need to communicate important information in a time sensitive manner. CloseBy® Text Marketing is the solution! CloseBy® provides your business with a simple, easy-to-use online portal where you can send messages instantly to a curated list of your dedicated customers. This allows you to book any last-minute appointments that may arise due to cancellations, push sales by offering discounts and specials for inventory that is going out of style or season, and to communicate directly with existing customers to keep them coming back to book with you!

When it comes to Salon and Spa businesses, many of these services need to be booked in advance, and there is a lot of opportunity with CloseBy® to quickly send out a message with a promotion or discount to efficiently fill those spots. It also allows you to keep your customers informed when you are all booked out. CloseBy® provides you with a dedicated Account Manager who works with you to send out the perfect messages for your business needs. As you build up your text list and communicate with your customers to offer them rewards and specials, you can build a rapport with your text list that keeps your customers engaged and coming back through your door. With the ability to draw in customers and boost sales at your fingertips, the program will often pay for itself!

Hear directly from business owners about the success they are having with CloseBy®:

Hear from Stefanie Fry of Colours Day Spa in Muncie, IN

“We signed up for the CloseBy® Text Marketing Program back in February of 2021. Our list has grown since we started and have really seen great feedback from our customers! Our customers love our messages that we send out. We send out a handful of cancellation or last minute opening appointment texts. We sent one out this past weekend and within 5 minutes of the text going out we had people call in to book because they saw the message! Those customers wouldn’t have known about the openings if we didn’t send the message. It’s great to actually see our investment in the text program go into full effect right in front of our eyes!”

Hear from Lexxi Giffin of Femme Beauty Lounge in Tinley Park, IL

“CloseBy® Text Marketing is the BEST form of communication between our salon and customers! We use the text program mainly for filling open availability, appointment cancellations, retail specials and so much more! We found that it is easier to text people with this information as they can react IMMEDIATLEY! Prior to text, we would post these types of openings and sales on Facebook and people would see them after the fact. Our customers truly love that they get first dibs on openings and special offers!”

Hear from Laura Harden of Vegas Sun, Inc in Dixon, IL

CloseBy® Text Marketing is an absolute asset for my business. The program paid for itself within the first five messages! Text marketing is a great way to reach out to my customers, especially during the slow days. The program is so easy to use. I have my own account manager who helps me come up with different messages to send out. The website is very user friendly and makes getting my messages out so simple. It provides the option to create messages ahead of time, that way I can start planning my offers and sales in advance. I would recommend CloseBy® Text Marketing to other businesses of any size.”
