Through partnering with Spa & Salon Wish, a network of more than 3600 salons and spas, your salon will be more effectively marketed on the web. They provide consumers with the ability to purchase gift certificates for your salon and you receive face value less a 17% marketing fee when they are redeemed.
Gift cards are hot — their sales totaled $97 billion dollars in 2007. And giving so-called “experiential” gifts — which includes a trip to the salon or spa — are among the fastest-growing trends. One way to cash in on all this enthusiasm is to join Spa & Salon Wish, a network of more than 3,600 salons and spas across the U.S. and Canada with a strong presence on the web. In July the company, a division of SpaFinder, also began selling Spa & Salon Wish gift cards in thousands of retail outlets across North America.
How it works for consumers: The gift-giver purchases a gift certificate or card good at any Salon & Spa Wish member salon for $25 up to $500. The lucky recipient receives a gift certificate or card with a personal message. The recipient can then redeem her gift at any of the spas and salons listed on the searchable database at spawish.com.
How it works for salon owners: Participating salons pay no upfront costs. When gift certificates/cards are redeemed at your business, the salon receives reimbursement from the company less a marketing fee of 17%. To join, fill out an application at www.spawish.com/partner.
