Black Friday Promotions for Beauty Pros

Online Only Deals

Want to make sure you’re reaping the benefits of Black Friday without dealing with tons of shoppers outside your salon or shop? Friends, that’s what online-only sales are all about.

You can rake in the cash without having a crowded storefront, all while making money by providing services. The only caveats with online sales? 

You’ll need to prepare before with lots of online promotion, SEO work, and social media boosting and you’ll need to be ready to fill all those product orders or fulfill all those services at a later date. 

Because these sales aren’t being delivered at the time of purchase or happening in real-time, you’ve got to find the time after the sale is over to prepare, ship, or get them ready for pick-up.  Still, for some, having a cyber sale is much less stressful than having people line up outside. 

2-4-1s / BOGOs 

The psychology behind a 2-4-1 or a buy-one-get-one-free (BOGO or BOGOF) is something we could write entire eBooks on–but for now, we’ll just tell you that they tend to seal the deal. Want a pro-tip? 

Apply this promo to the retail stock you’re trying to clear out of the way! Of course, you can apply this elsewhere, but this is a great way to reap the benefits of cashing in and getting rid of products you might want to retire from your inventory. 

All the Black Friday Gift Cards 

Want to rake in the dough and also have the most chill Black Friday sale ever? We’ve got two words for you: gift cards. If you can find a way to promote your gift cards (maybe Buy 2 get the 3rd at 50% off) so you can boost your profits, future you will be entirely thrilled. 

That means you don’t have to deal with in-person deals on the day of, making it easier to space out the appointments for all those who are looking to benefit from the Black Friday sale. 

Bundled Black Friday Packages

They can be filled with gift cards, products, vouchers for services–whatever you want to push! Make it easy, convenient, and fun–then watch the sales fly in! 

Raffles for the Win
