Need some effective and engaging social media tips to quickly incorporate into your holiday marketing plans?

Blue Glass blogger, Kerry Jones, offers up 60 creative social media tips that will help you connect and share your unique brand of spa or salon this holiday season. Some of her tips are more applicable to spas and salons than others but her blog post will get you thinking about new ways to add social media to your existing marketing strategy today and throughout 2012.

Leverage the fact that people love a great deal and exclusive discounts to grow your follower base. — Kerry Jones, Blue Glass

SpaBoomer's have access to powerful tools to promote great deals so think about running a BoomTime Deal during the holiday. It's easy to set-up and will get your clients excited about your holiday promotions.

A holiday Facebook Sweepstakes takes about 5 minutes to set-up and allows your spa or salon to gather new Facebook fans in a short amount of time. It's viral in nature; the sweepstakes application creates an incentive for existing fans to invite new people to increase the chances of winning. A more robust fan base means more people get your Facebook posts on their news feed during the holiday. In addition, when someone enters your sweepstakes they provide an email address and can give permission for your spa or salon to market to them. Those new email addresses go directly into your SpaBoom account. That means a new set of customers will see your holiday promotional email campaigns.

Use Facebook and Twitter to promote your spa or salon as a gift-solution center. You can promote treatments, product/service packages and create the awareness that your business offers a last-minute gift solution with Instant Gift Certificates.
