Retailers jump on social media bandwagon with Facebook, Twitter – Social Media Marketing

To spread the word about a new skin-care salon in West Seattle, owner Karen Jahn got her social-media act together and hired a publicist to reach out to several hundred customers on Facebook and Twitter.

Through teaser messages, fans of Jahn’s Wax Bar in Ballard were told about the cross-town opening and given a chance to win weekly prizes.

“I don’t know if we got many new clients out of it,” said Jahn, who spent more than $800 on the monthlong promotion. “But we got more people to follow us, and now more people are aware of the Wax Bar.”
