Salon Plaza Supports Member Success
That’s why we’ve put together these 7 Steps to Build Your Reputation Online:
Step #1: Get Back to the Basics
When you become a Member, Salon Plaza helps you get off to a fast start so you can live a life of FREEDOM, POWER and GROWTH on your terms.
Salon Plaza Members can easily get their personal sites looking super savvy and up-to-date. And the best news is, it will help you grow your clientele in 3 ways:
- Get found in online searches for services like yours
- Build your reputation as a skilled salon pro
- Make scheduling easy for a FULL book
But if key info isn’t visible on your site, then it won’t help you book new appointments anytime soon.
Taking the time to plug your basic info into your website – and keep it current – builds your connection with the clients you serve. When creating or updating your Salon Plaza website, your Personal Website Checklist will help you get it done fast and stay on-track.

Step #2: Make Yourself Stand Out
In addition to your name, salon name and contact info, your Salon Plaza Member personal website makes it easy for you to stand out and be seen. With simple clicks you can upload a photo gallery and highlight your services.
Including before-and-after photos really gets you noticed. And sorting your services into descriptive categories lets the potential new client learn more about the kind of attention you provide.
Step #3: Get Noticed!
Salon Plaza Member websites highlight the best feature: YOU!
To attract new clients, your profile photo makes that crucial first impression. Your personal website allows you to choose your featured photo. Remember to look professional and approachable in your profile image. Choose one where you look directly into the camera and smile!
Alternatively, you can use your logo or an image that communicates what you do for your clients.
For example, Salon Plaza Member Shadha Alani, owner of Alani’s Beauty chose a profile photo of her skincare services that is clear, professional and illustrative for new clients. Take a look!
Step #4: Tell Your Story
At the end of the day, no one else can be you. This truth is your Super Power. Can you describe what makes you stand out from the crowd?
To get the most out of your personal website, you must give viewers a compelling reason to learn more about you.
Start by asking yourself, why do your ideal clients choose you? When you can describe WHY (among all the alternatives) your guests choose YOU, your website will begin to attract clients like crazy!
Once you understand the reasons your perfect clients keep coming back to you for beauty services, you can attract new customers by posting those compelling words on your website in the ABOUT section.
For instance, if your specialty is to transform your client’s look with hair color, then write about how fantastic your clients will feel with new shine and shimmer. A well-written ABOUT section powerfully distinguishes you from all the other stylists in your area.
Salon Plaza Member Lea Mengistu, owner of Lea’s Salon Studio has written a compelling description of who she is and what she offers. Her story works because it includes her history, expertise and interests.
Most importantly, it highlights the benefits her clients will receive as a guest in her studio.

Step #5: Get FOUND with KEYWORDS
In the world of web marketing, you might have heard about SEO and Keywords. What that means: For new customers to find you on Google, Yelp and lots of other places on the web, choose the right Keywords and use them properly for SEO (search engine optimization).
When local people are looking for services like yours, wisely choosing your Keywords will help bring you to the top of their search. It will boost you above all the rest when someone near you is looking for what you do.
Salon Plaza Members: Check your email inbox to get the download on how to choose your best Keywords and use them in your website to your advantage. Look for subject line: “How to Build Your Reputation Online”.
