Hair & Beauty Digital Marketing

The Hair & Beauty industry has experienced huge growth in recent years. From beauty salons to barbershops and beauty products to treatment rooms, hair and beauty businesses have been able to offer a wide variety of services to a varied audience.

Blue Tit London - SEO for Hair Salons

Case Study | Blue Tit London

We have worked with Blue Tit London for more than 2 years on their SEO. Helping the business grow from 3 salons across London to 10 and expanding. As always we started with an audit of their existing website. We identified several fixes and set about implementing these to ensure we had a good foundation of technical SEO (a fast website that Google can easily index etc). We then conducted our keyword and competitor research process to work on the on-page tasks of SEO helping Google pick-up the site for relevant keywords.

Working in partnership with their PR agency we set about a content and link building strategy to drive inbound links from high authority sites. With all this work we dominated the local search results for each salon and picked up additional traffic from hair related queries and wider search locations. This in turn led to increase of organic search traffic of over 140% over 2 years and we continue to improve and build on their search traffic. Crucially this traffic converts extremely well so we can prove a strong return on investment for the client.
