What promotions do you have planned for the 2010 holiday season?

I recently took an aromatheraphy class for certification on mixing personalized products. I plan to make bath salts and sample lotions to give to my clients as gifts at the time they receive their services during the holidays. The salts can go in small bags that will also hold a business card to promote calls for future appointments.

I'm selling holiday gift certificates and advertising them in the spa and on the website.

Our salon is planning a Fall Hair Extravaganza. We have invited all of our clients and business partners to an evening showcase of fall hair and makeup trends. We will be serving champagne and appetizers and have several special raffles going on as well as gift packages featuring the items to get the look available for retail.

We are teaming up with two clients who are hosting a Silpada Jewelry party at the spa, and we will host a fall open house at the same time. This brings in new people that the clients invite, as well as our current clients.
