- before and afters
- client reviews
- client favourites

Get online & Social
If your skincare range allows online sales, make it easy for your clients to buy. If for some reasons you don’t want to sell online or your skincare ranges do not permit, that’s ok let your clients know you can take over the phone orders and arrange post or pickup.
Share snippets/teasers of your beautiful displays & Christmas packs. Your network will always engage best to real images with real people in your real space rather than stock images.
If you don’t have a window display or passing trade this is ESSENTIAL. Treat your website and social just like a busy Window display or shopping centre.
