Salon Thank You Letter Examples!

Below are two of several salon thank you letters we used in our salon and spa which we owned for 10 years.

We sent thank you letters within 24 hours of a client buying a service from us, and we sent a specific letter associated with the service that was purchased. For example if a new client bought a body wrap package we had a thank you letter just for that service, or if they bought a Mystic Tan sunless tanning package we had a Mystic tan thank you letter, etc. etc.

Each thank you letter has a purpose:

1. To show how appreciative we are for the clients business.
2. To build a stronger relationship (every contact is important).
3. To upsell.

Formatting: Keep in mind that we had the letters formatted with a picture to the left of the headline and under each picture there was a caption. We also separated sentences, used bolding when appropriate to keep ‘skimmers’ interested and often used sub-headlines as well (see the example at the very bottom of this page).

Contactor Marketing Letter Sample

Below is a good, basic introductory contractor marketing letter that you can model. I suggest you use this as a first step on your sequence, and mail at least one or two more letters, or postcards. Sequencing a series of letters that draws attention to each previous letter – using grabbers – is a proven way to boost response.

After all, one new client will more than pay for a three sequenced mailing to 5 or 10 thousand people. If you use this lifetime value of your client as a factor in your business you’ll find that market consistently is going to be one of your most profitable endeavors.

Side Bar: Send letters and thank you notes to all of your current clients NOW, because you’ll impress them and get new business and referrals as a result. I know dozens of contractors and none of them do this. But when the handful of contractors I asked to do this, they started getting more business than they could handle. But of course, they were able to grow their businesses and focus more on the fun marketing stuff: direct mail, newsletters, internet, social media, etc. Continue reading Contactor Marketing Letter Sample
