Why is a gift card the perfect gift for Valentine’s day 2022?

The traditional gifting behavior has changed from giving expensive gifts to providing memorable experiences. In fact, if we talk about people on the receiving end, experiential gifts are the second most desired Valentine’s Day gifts

And good news for you: that’s exactly what you sell – experiences.

As a salon or spa owner, your services like hair treatments, spa sessions, beauty makeovers, or mani-pedis are the best experiences that customers can gift. (Did you know that a spa treatment is now the 3rd most desired gift?

And that’s not it. More than 21% of the entire gift-giving population is planning to give gift cards in 2022

The bottom line: As a salon or spa owner, selling gift cards on Valentine’s day can be a great way for you to make some extra money and attract new customers to your door!

Boost your Valentine’s Day gift card promotions

Gift cards won’t sell themselves. 

On the other hand, a little effort from your end can make them fly off the shelves. To ensure that your customers know that you are offering Valentine’s day gift cards, start putting them in front of their eyes at every possible touchpoint:

1) From where they book appointments – Online/Offline:

Upload the gift cards at your customer-facing interfaces like your booking portal or website. This will allow customers to buy them online at a suitable time or offline through your salon/spa.

If they are usually walk-in or call to book an appointment, make sure your receptionist informs them about the gift cards up for sale. 

2) At the entrance and checkout:

Strategically display your gift cards at the entrances, receptions, and in your spa or salon window display (if you have one), so that anyone who is entering, exiting, or crossing your salon on the street can know about them. You never know your gift cards might catch their eyes, and they might buy one! 

3) During the service:

This is where most upsell often happen. Train your staff that they politely mention gift cards in a casual conversation with their clients.  

Selling gift cards during Valentine’s day is a quick and easy promotion technique. It takes little effort from your end and delivers instant value. 

But that’s not it!
