Blog Content for SEO

After examining the company’s Google Analytics, I determined that hundreds of website visitors reached solasalonstudios.com via the search term “What is a Salon Studio”. I created a blog post with that title to help bring in top of funnel website traffic and help boost awareness of the Sola Salon Studio concept.

Brand Partnership: Instagram Takeover

Sola partners with brands to provide special deals to their salon studio owners. To promote a recent promotion with Amika I organized an Instagram takeover with the brand’s Global Artistic Director, Naeemah LaFond.

First, we promoted the deal on Facebook and posted the following graphic across 150 local brand pages as well as the national Sola accounts.

Then we created an image to announce the takeover and posted one version to our Instagram account and shared the other image with Naeemah. (She shared hers in her story).

Results: 

Over 600 people tune into our takeover, which was the most watched Instagram story to date.

The Amika deal was also the most utilized to date.

 

 

 

Business Application Marketing

The company offers an all-in-one application to help with payment processing, scheduling, inventory and other essential functions to help customers run their own independent salon business.

A lot of the functions that are taken care of in the traditional salon environment (receptionist, a manager to handle inventory, etc.) now fall onto the salon owner.  I  created this social campaign to highlight the features of the ap that can take some of the work off of the beauty pros shoulders and allow them to focus on their craft.

 

 

 

 

 

Local Marketing: Coming Soon

In order to expedite fill time on new locations, I began a program to launch targeted social ads in new markets about 3 months before our target open date.

I targeted an 8-mile radius with interest targeting to reach beauty pros who work and live near our new locations.

Results: 

With a modest budget of only about $100 per location, we saw a 50% increase in lead forms and tours for these locations.

Email Win-Back Campaign

From a list of over 60k leads, at least 30k of them had not interacted with our email campaigns in the last three months. In an effort to clean up our contact list and re-engage potential leads, I implemented a win-back email providing an exclusive offer only to those who had not opened any of our emails in the past three months.

Results
By changing up our communication method and offering a complimentary sample of exclusive education, I was able to re-engage 14% of our inactive subscribers.
We offered our leads special, one-time only access to an exclusive webinar that’s only available to Sola beauty professionals. The intention was to provide a new value proposition to leads by providing a taste of the exclusive education opportunities that are available to Sola Professional.

Career Center resources campaign

A multi-channel campaign

I created emails, social media posts, digital and print ads.

Our target audience for MGMA is office managers and hospital administrators who often wear many hats in order to keep the office or clinic running smoothly. In addition to being a receptionist, medical coder, billing manager and accountant, they are also often tasked with recruitment duties. The new resources in the MGMA Career Center are designed to help our members– who are often not trained in HR management– master recruitment, and onboarding best practices so they can get back to their main job functions.

The objective to provide awareness. If members begin to view the MGMA Career Center as a resource for their recruitment knowledge, they will also utilize our job boards for their posting needs.

I worked with the Human Resources department to develop content for the Career Center. Including:

Here is the marketing creative:

Subject Line: Find your next top achiever today

Career Center Scratch-Off Card

Printed Collateral for Conferences and Networking Events

Problem: We need to drive traffic to the newly updated Career Center website and would like to promote this at various face-to-face events throughout the year. However, the typical MGMA conferences attendee is not the same audience as our target demographic for the MGMA Career Center.

Solution: Create a piece of collateral that would be intriguing enough for a conference attendee to bring back to their company recruitment or human resources manager. Something eye-catching and interactive:  a scratch ticket.

Two promotion codes are listed beneath the scratch material, either a free posting or a 20% off offer.

The promo codes are unique to this promotion so we can track the success of the campaign.

Referral Campaign for MGMA Annual Conference

Spread the Word about MGMA16

With no budget for incentives, I had to devise a referral campaign to encourage registered attendees for our annual conference to invite their peers to join them. My main objectives were to make the process as quick and painless as possible and add a bit of whimsey.

Everyone loves animal videos so why not use a cute monkey video as an incentive?

The drip campaign consisted of the following components:
