Cyber Monday for Spas and Salons: Boost Your Online Sales

November 6, 2015 Amy Cross

As a spa or salon owner, there’s a lot that goes into preparing for the shopping powerhouse weekend of Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. It can get a little overwhelming, but preparing for the big weekend now is essential for skyrocketing your end-of-year sales.

Even though your spa or salon is primarily serviced-based, there are still tons of opportunities for you to capitalize on all the online spending. For starters, think gift certificates. Gift certificates are still a hot holiday item for spas and salons as the National Retail Federation predicts 60% of all holiday shoppers to purchase them. So, for Cyber Monday, make gift certificates available for purchase through your website and/or online shop. In addition to that, with 53% of all holiday purchases predicted to be made online this holiday season, try offering some products,product bundles, or membership specials online as well.

Many of your clients are going to look for ways to shop from the convenience of their own homes, especially during the holiday season. Cyber Monday is going to allow them to do so. According to PFSWeb.com, Health & Beauty industry products specifically “saw an increase of 4% in online sales,” and a whopping “increase of 28% in mobile sales.”

For the past number of years, Cyber Monday has dominated the shopping holidays of Thanksgiving Weekend.
