For your profile picture use a good photo of your face. You don’t want to use a random personal picture with all sorts of people or things in the background.

2. Next, upload a cover photo

This is the wide picture at the top of your profile. You want this picture to be a company logo or image. This lets your prospects know what you do.

3. Start following people

Spend 30 minutes finding people, products, and salon-related pages to follow. Twitter has a search box on the top right-hand corner of the page that you can use to search for anything on that platform. Be sure to follow pages and people that relate to your business, such as clients, potential clients, salon magazines, etc…

4. Start Tweeting!!

So what in the world can you tweet about to get people in your chair?

Tweet about what is going on with your business. Are you having a grand opening? Are you having a sale on products or a daily special?

12. Re-tweet

If you like someone else’s post you can re-tweet it. They will appreciate it and they may also re-tweet your messages, which will get you in front of your target audience even more.

These 12 Tips for Twitter will help you to make better use of your time on Social Media. Your salon will attract new clients, keep them engaged, and become known as the authority in your specialty.

“Tell me below which new tactic you plan to use first and what happens when you do.”

But wait!!

There is more you can do to draw people in. For instance, as a local salon business or independent professional providing services to LOCAL people who want what you offer, it won’t do you any good if you’re tweeting people outside your local area or those who won’t value what you provide.
