understanding of it.
SalonsForSale.com has been live for
about a decade (2000).
We've had thousands of Salon listing
ads created by sellers like
Search listings here.
We usually have hundreds of salon
listing ads at any one given time
and we've always got thousands of
registered buyers. We usually have
lots of accounts created every day.
We don't have random internet
traffic. Most of our traffic is not
from buyers of general
business-for-sale opportunities. Actually, very little of
our traffic includes
general-interest business buyers
(just looking for businesses for
sale of any type).
Our buyer traffic
is specific... Very specific. And we
have lots of it (each listing ad on
our site has it's own stats which
sellers can monitor at all times).
It is highly target-marketed traffic
consisting almost exclusively of
buyers who are specifically looking
to buy salons. There is no buyer
traffic that is more target-marketed
than our's. Period. Until you truly
have a full
understanding of the importance of
getting your salon for sale
advertised in front of buyers who
are specifically looking to buy a
salon, then you're keeping yourself
in a low chance of selling.

Look at the hundreds of
listing ads on the site
already (in almost every
state and about 10
nations around the
world). Notice how they
are written by the
owners. Notice which
ones are the most
impressive. Notice which
ones tend to get your
attention more. Notice
that a common
characteristic of the
most compelling Listing
Ads is that they have

Also, did you notice that the first
ones that got your attention (and
that you probably viewed)
are the ones with photos? This
is a brand new feature we've recently
added. We've tested it off and on
over the last couple of
years and the effect is that listing ads with
photos, assuming they are impressive
photos, get much more Buyer traffic than
those without. Also notice that they
are displayed on the top of the
list. To put it bluntly, you're
crazy if you don't add photos. They
work, and they work well at

Without it, you can't

These are the steps that
you will taken through:
the type of salon, the
location of it, and
enter the contact info
for the listing ad.
Select and enter all important salon info. What you write at
this point about your salon should
be interesting, compelling, and it
should have the effect of getting
the attention of buyers and engaging

Financial Info: price,
lease info, assets info,
etc. Strong suggestion:
Be accurate here. Buyers
quickly lose interest if
the financial info is
wrong. Think carefully about that.
This is optional. But as
stated above, you're
crazy if you don't add
photos. They provide a
"selling" effect that
you cannot achieve
without them. Listing
Ads with photos get
displayed above those

What's the Cost to Place a Listing

1-year listing advertisement.
Huh? Nothing is free, right?!
Wrong. After thousands of advertised

They create the "picture is worth a
thousand words" effect. This is a
new feature that we've just added.
We've extensively tested it. Listing
Ads with photos produce MUCH better
results than those without. Most
salon buyers are very visual and

Buyers don't know you or your salon.
All they have to go on is the
descriptive info you

and lacks professionalism, it

attempt to achieve these things
because these are what tend to have the best effect in

indicate that sellers who accomplish
