C.G Salon in New York has been successfully using social networking techniques for 2 1/2 years now and compare the use of it to the need for water!
"We have been using social media and networking since we started our business 2 1/2 years ago. It's like water to me! I have to have it to make my business grow. My salon has absolutely no road visibility so I turned to the internet to make myself more visible. Myspace was our first avenue of social media and was effective at the time when the salon website was under construction. I quickly saw facebook was much more widely used and people were transitioning to it so we followed suit. Love facebook! We have linked it to our twitter account and other social profiles. Our guests follow our updates for specials and to see what's new. There is definitely and etiquette that must be followed as outlined in the "Hairstylist's Guide to Social Networking" as to not loose clients through these networks. We have our guests advertising for us through these sites without us even asking them to!"
