StyleSeat's Marketing Program
We match you with high-paying regulars for lasting relationships
Finding great clients to fill your schedule can feel like a full-time hustle. Between Groupon, Yelp, Facebook, and other expensive marketing platforms, there are countless ways to try to get clients through the door. Even with these complex tools, keeping a steady stream of business is harder than it looks. We get it, finding quality clients can be difficult and time-consuming — that’s exactly why we created our marketing program. We make it easier for reliable, high-paying customers to discover and book professionals for long-lasting, beauty-bonded relationships.
You choose the type of clients you want, we pay to get you discovered and booked.
Whether you’re building your clientele or looking to grow your top services, adding the right clients to your list can help you grow your revenue by thousands of dollars a year.
We’ll run ads and promote your profile across search engines and social media -- you only pay when we get you a new booking. When we connect you with a client, you give them a private rating to help us find clients who are a custom fit for your business.
One-time fee, long-time clients
When a new client books you through our program, we'll only keep a percentage of the first appointment. To help keep your beauty bonds strong, we'll use that money to invest back into more marketing for you. New StyleSeat clients are worth an average of $550 a year, so your one-time investment is well worth it!
We’ll continue working for you even after the appointment is over by encouraging your new client to leave a 5-star review, pre-book their next appointment with you, and refer you to their friends. Profits from all future appointments with them go directly to you.
Let’s Break This Down A Bit More!
Are you on our Marketing Plan?
We’ll only keep 25% of the first appointment for each new client that books with you through this marketing program (service cost + tip).
Are you on our Scheduling Plan?
We'll only keep 35% of the first appointment for each new client that books with you through this marketing program (service cost only, tips are all yours!). Please keep in mind, this plan has a standard 2.75% processing fee for all card transactions processed.
Q: What if I’m not looking to take on new clients right now?
You can opt-out of the program by contacting our support team. As a StyleSeat professional, you can submit a Support Ticket through our Help Center. If you haven't already done so, you'll need to click or tap Need help? to get started. By opting out of the program, you will no longer receive new clients from StyleSeat and your profile may be excluded from high-traffic placements like the homepage or social media campaigns.
NOTE: Only scheduling plan pros are eligible to opt out.
Q: I think one of my existing clients was accidentally marked as a new client through this program. What should I do?
We’re happy to take care of this for you. We are still in the early stages of developing our marketing program and it’s possible some clients may get mislabeled from time to time. If any of your clients are ever accidentally marked as a new client through this program, you can simply click the I know this client in the appointment details. Depending on the timing the Marketing fee will be removed from the appointment or you will be reimbursed for the fees directly into your account.
Get paid what your time is really worth.
With Smart Pricing, our data science analyzes your business, identifies your most popular time slots, and raises the prices slightly to match their true value. This allows clients who really need your prime booking times to get them more often. Clients who are more flexible can always get one of your regular booking times for your standard price.
How it Works:
- When your clients book online, they will see a slight price increase on your most popular time slots.
- You’ll see your extra earnings in a breakdown in the appointment details.
- For all Smart Pricing appointments, the card on file will be charged automatically one hour after the appointment ends -- no need for your client to pull out their wallet!
- An automatic 20% tip will be included, or your client can add a custom tip from the text message we send them during and after the appointment.
- If there is a problem with the card on file, the appointment will appear red on your calendar.
Things That May Be Different With Your Checkout
PAYMENT: If you need to update the card or any details about the appointment, make sure to do it before it checks out automatically.
DEPOSITS: Your client’s card will be processed through StyleSeat’s payments processor (Expresspay) so don’t forget to add your bank account information to receive these funds: https://styleseat.freshdesk.com/en/support/solutions/articles/69000469837-get-paid-through-styleseat
Last Minute Cancel
Now clients can get early access to those last-minute cancels and pros can keep their books full. Early access appointments are a win-win for everyone!
We know how frustrating it can be when you can't find the time you’re looking for, so we’re giving you more opportunities to book the time you really want. When your professional has a last-minute opening, we’ll send you a text letting you know that an earlier time opened up. In many cases, these time slots are in high demand and can get booked up quickly. That’s why, as regulars, you'll have early access to book them first. If the time is more convenient for you and you want to book it before anyone else does, you can book directly from the link we text you, and StyleSeat will collect an additional $10 early access fee. This helps us ensure that people who really want or need that specific time can get it.
