Of those that do implement social media marketing campaigns, few are able to do so effectively.
Salon, spa, and tanning salon owners come up with plenty of excuses to avoid social media. And we understand, as all forms of internet marketing can be intimidating. Social media marketing, especially, seems to change everyday.
However, a little bit of education can go a long way. Put a tried and true method into place and what makes social media so scarey becomes a boon. The ever-evolving landscape creates more opportunities for businesses to take advantage of new platforms and features.

The main thing you want to do is make sure you get all of your ducks in a row before July comes.
