How to Market Your New Microblading Business

Get on Socials & Get Active

You know what’s going to get people most interested in your services? Seeing the results. The best way to make that happen? Get your socials up and running and be as active as you can be on them.

Before and after photos, behind the scenes videos, whatever it might be—people want to see what you do and how well you do it, and social media is the perfect place to get this evidence in front of them.

Beyond that, it’s crucial to have a social media presence as a business—it’s where all of our audiences are (pretty much whatever age range or demographic) and it’s the most streamlined way to reach them.

Social media can provide you with a ton of marketing benefits, like:

  • Offering social proof and valuable information to get people interested and hooked on your service
  • A platform to reach out and communicate with you directly
  • A space to find answers to questions, inquire about your services, and schedule with you
  • An easy-to-use platform for engagement in general
  • A spot for glowing reviews and referrals

And that’s just the start of it.

Social media is an absolute must in terms of marketing. Think about it, when’s the last time you put your trust in a company—in any industry—without this type of digital presence?

 Reason being? Referrals can literally be your lifeblood—you could obtain a ton of new clients without having to put the resources or dollars into attracting them just by being a badass microblading pro for your current clients.

They do all the legwork for you when they walk out the door and you get to reap the benefits.

Offer Price Cuts to Get Clients In the Door

But, spoiler alert, don’t do this forever! If you’re new to the microblading biz, it might feel super hard to get anyone in your chair.

Why? Because microblading is a little more permanent than other cosmetology procedures.

While some people are willing to take the risk on a new stylist and get a haircut (because hair grows back), the social proof for something like microblading needs to be much more substantial. And honestly, that’s for good reason.

There’s likely a reasonable explanation for why people who are in the biz don’t have a lot of customers—but in your case, you're new and just need to build up some clients, some before and after photos, and of course, that valuable social proof.

The best way to go about this?

Offer limited-time price cuts to the first dozen customers who put their faith in you. What do you get out of this? More practice, the ability to use their before and after shots, and of course, that valuable social proof.

With just a few, quick changes, you can set yourself (and your microblading biz) up for success. Got some more marketing tips we should know about?
