What was the problem?

The Challenge

Valessio sought to expand its client base to fill up the salon. However, they were uncertain as to how to approach this problem. After working with several different marketing agencies though eventually found that traditional strategies came at too high a cost and lacked returns on investment.

BigDreams was selected to develop a long-term plan with the goal of expanding the customer base for hair salons. Performance-based monthly fee made BigDreams an ideal partner, as they are committed to delivering successful results.

Challenge 1

Marketing Spend

Valessio was understandably hesitant to invest in marketing, considering they had never benefited from it before.

Challenge 2


With the prominence of hairdressers and directory listings on Google, competition for high rankings can be fierce.

Challenge 3

Limited online presence

Working with Valessio, we embarked on a marketing endeavour from the ground up - no website and few available resources to draw upon.

What did we do

The Approach

Our strategy involved implementing our Local Marketing Model, focusing on the local market to get more clients through Valessio’s doors at a local level. We set a 12-month plan which included the website design, and CRM booking integrations to the entire marketing strategy and management.

For the growth and acquisition growth, we’d experiment with tactics and a small scale by focusing on one location; once we established and tested a successful strategy, we would expand the local marketing model to other locations in Paris.

The local-focused solutions we put into action included a solid focus on Local SEO, launching social media platforms, initiating an online and offline digital strategy, and enhancing engagement rates to enhance client acquisition and retention.
