Marketing Tips You Can Use As A Lash Artist (With No Marketing Budget)

How do you attract lash clients? How do lash techs stand out? It never seems to end. Whether you're trying to increase the number of clients, optimize your sale, or create a better experience for your clients, we want all of that and more as a lash artist. We want growth. If your business isn't using marketing to get new clients, you miss out on a valuable resource.

Marketing is a big part of being a lash artist. The more people you get to know, the more clients you'll have. You may not have a big budget to market your business if you're starting. That's okay! You can do a lot with very little if you're willing to be creative and put in some hard work.

Though you may be a talented lash artist and have a solid clientele, there's room for improvement. Or maybe you've been looking to expand your client base but have no marketing budget.

Here are some marketing tips you can use to grow your lash artistry business – even if you don't have a budget for marketing and will help you build buzz around your business and get clients to book an appointment with you:

 

DO FREE LASH SETS FOR CLOSE FRIENDS AND FAMILY MEMBERS 

(as long as they're okay with being photographed)

It will help you grow your skills while creating a marketing portfolio. Keep the price of your first set of lashes low. It will help build your client base. You can always increase lash prices later when you've built up a solid clientele.

Consider increasing prices every couple of months to keep up with inflation and other economic factors. Sell additional lash care products such as eyelid scrub, mascara wands, etc.

You can work out a deal with them — they get free lashes in exchange for letting you take before-and-after photos.

OFFER DISCOUNT LASH SESSIONS FOR THE FIRST NEW CLIENTS WHO BOOK WITH YOU

If you're starting and feeling a little unsure about your lash skills, there's nothing wrong with offering a discount for the first few new clients who book with you. It allows you to practice your craft, but it also gives you a chance to build your portfolio and get positive reviews from real lash clients. As you gain confidence in your skills, your prices will increase and demand.

It will allow you to show your skills and give clients an incentive to try a new service. That's the sweet spot for most people because it feels like a "deal," but you still make a good profit margin.

POST TESTIMONIALS FROM CLIENTS ON SOCIAL MEDIA

(ask for permission first)

The great thing about social media is that it allows you to build your reputation and expand your clientele without spending a ton of money on marketing. By simply posting photos and testimonials of your lash clients, you can showcase your lash talent, gain new followers and grow your business.

One of the best ways to use social media for lashes is posting photos and videos of your before-and-after results. Don't be shy about showing off your work! Impress potential clients with pictures of the gorgeous lashes you can create from start to finish or post videos that show off your technique and the products you use.

Showcase what past clients have said about their experience with you and let others see how happy they are with their results. While most people won't take time out of their day to write reviews online, some would gladly write a short blurb or two if asked.

REFERRALS

Ask happy clients to refer their friends to you by offering them an incentive like 10% off their next session if someone books an appointment based on their recommendation. It will encourage clients to tell their friends about you and bring their friends back with them for services!

We all know that word of mouth is the best advertising. As a lash artist, nothing warms your heart more than a client who refers you to their friends and family. It's a compliment, and it feels great! But beyond just making you feel good, client referrals are one of the most effective ways to grow your business.

OFFER DISCOUNTS FOR LASH CLIENTS "BRINGING A FRIEND"

Word-of-mouth marketing is one of the most effective ways to expand your business. If you offer your clients a discount for referring friends, you are more likely to get new customers coming through your door. Offer them a special deal if they bring in a friend or family member who is not an existing customer (or a set number of friends).

They get a discount, and their friend gets an introduction to you and your business. Everyone wins! It takes more than just great lash extensions if you want to attract new clients. You also have to remind your happy clients to spread the word.

Let your customers know they're saving money with a discount on their next appointment.

IMPORTANCE OF BRANDING

I have seen and heard lash artists ask me: "Should I create a logo for my lash business?" "What is the point of branding?" "How do I brand my lash business?"

As a lash artist, branding is one of the most important factors to build your clientele and get the word out that you are a professional in the beauty industry. Lash artistry has been around for many years, but it is still new to some people.

Think about your lash business as a whole. What do you want your clients to think about when they see your work? You must keep everything consistent across all platforms and give off the same vibe. It includes but is not limited to:

Your Instagram feed (how it looks like a whole)

Your Instagram stories (themes, colors, fonts)

The way you talk on social media.

The customer experience (how you treat them at appointments)

Email marketing messages (subject lines, content)

You want to deliver the same message across all platforms so that your potential clients may know what it would be like to work with you! Lash artists have a passion for creating beautiful lashes, and they want their clients to see that they are professional lash artists. So you must create a great brand that can help you attract clients who trust your brand and keep coming back after receiving service from you.

CONCLUSION

As a lash artist with a tight budget, your best bet is to focus on the community and word-of-mouth marketing. While building your customer base, I suggest you have one or two regulars you can rely on for consistent business. Once you have those, it's time to start getting new clients and building your business.

Don't worry about doing this perfectly. Many people get caught up in making sure they have everything set up perfectly, and as a result, they never start. Just start with what you've got now and make changes along the way. You don't need a big marketing budget to grow your clientele as a lash artist.
