Beyond Skin Clinic, based in Belfast city centre, offers a range of cosmetic and medical laser treatments. They recently completed one of our business growth programmes and received one-to-one mentoring to help assess their growth needs and put a strategic plan in place.
Jennie Wallace, co-owner of Beyond Skin Clinic, explains:
“After an in-depth review of our digital marketing activities, we worked with a specialist mentor to develop a robust digital marketing strategy which covered our online presence and content, social media, e-marketing, search engine optimisation and pay per click advertising. We really focused on long term solutions that would deliver tangible results for our business.”
Beyond Skin have noticed significant results including an increase in website traffic by over 1000 hits per month.
The clinic team also worked with local celebrities and brand influencers which helped to improve brand awareness and showcase real treatments and real results to new audiences.
And thanks to an improved profile and dedicated strategy, Beyond Skin went on to be named NI Cosmetic Clinic of the Year at the prestigious Hair and Beauty Awards.
