Q: What are you doing to promote your products directly to consumers and drive them to salons?

LISA: The last couple years, social media has become huge and is a huge part of every brand. If you don’t have a huge social presence, you’re not really an actual brand. People are looking things up on social media and want to see other people like them using and enjoying the product. Showing influencers using real products goes a long way to not only help sell products to end-users but also help add to what the salesperson in the salon is telling the client. We really do all the social to support salon partners, so it gives them a platform to stand on when they’re talking about our products. There are different efforts to get influencers and find the content we post.

BAILEY: The majority of people go to social media before they go to reviews online. Most people go on TikTok or Instagram. We’re actually one of the only tanning companies that has a presence on TikTok. We have a really big influencer program, and we’re actively looking to work with new influencers. We’re making a point to post and be active on different platforms and expand our influencer program.

I get DMs and messages all the time from girls who see us on TikTok or Instagram and ask how they find our products, and we direct them back into a Devoted 5-star salon. That’s definitely a way people find our products. A lot of our videos have gone viral.

We do a lot of Instagram ads, we use stories or I do boosted posts on Instagram and carry that nover to Facebook. We are starting to dabble into TikTok ads. The one I’ve seen the most results from is Instagram ads. We’re targeting new clients and growing our brand. It increases our following a lot.
