Hi everyone
I need some tips on advertising for mobile hairdressing, I use to be mobile about 4 years ago but have since moved and had two children so starting up again.
Places to advertise and also what's the most popular treatment?
Thanks

Facebook and social media is a great way of doing it! That's how most people do it nowadays. You can down load an app calked pic stitch and do spilt screen before and after pictures. X

Great thank you, what do you think about flyers or not worth the money?

I have recently gone mobile, have posted 1000 flyers and had a good response, they only cost £50 from vista Print.

Get some business cards from vista print made and put them in local shops.. That way people who don't use Facebook will be targeted also and you can hand them out to people with out having to scrabble around for your phone etc. X

I only do hair extensions but I personally don't find Facebook that great. I've had some clients from Facebook but it's mostly been gumtree and word of mouth. I think with Facebook you have to be really consistent and there's a lot of competition and so many super cheap people so it makes it hard xx

Ive had about 80% of my clients from facebook. I did a leaflet drop but out of about 400 leaflets local, about 3 people rang me. At least on facebook i put photos of before and after of every client and people see this and book x

I used to use Facebook but found potential clients expected 24/7 attention. And a lot of time wasting from people wanting a chat or free advice lol. I now use my Instagram for my regulars, posting up before and afters, and latest offers etc. however I make it clear to book an appointment must be done through calling up. I use netmums, gumtree, yellow pages. Local schools will sometimes put your leaflets in the kids book bags to take home. I did leafleting once and I got nothing from it. Mine clientele is now mainly word of mouth. My favourite place to advertise is probably netmums.
