Valentine's day is right around the corner and people everywhere are looking for ways to treat the people that they love to something special. Now is the perfect time for a marketing push and this gift voucher campaign is a low effort, high reward campaign you can set up in just 10 minutes!

Set up a Valentine’s gift voucher

First up you’ll need to set up a voucher to sell online. Head to Setup > Gift Vouchers where you can either set up a custom amount or fixed value vouchers. Set your terms and make sure you allow them to be purchased online. Select the Valentine’s template to really show the love!


Accepting payments

You’ll need a payment provider set up so that your clients can pay for their vouchers online. TimelyPay is the easiest option for both you and your clients with low rates and an incredibly quick and simple setup available from within Timely.

Let your clients know

The next step is to create a quick marketing campaign to let clients know about your valentines voucher. It can take seven times for a customer to hear an offer before they commit to buying, use as many channels as you can, over the several weeks in the lead up to Valentine’s day. A “one and done” message won’t get you anywhere!


Create some posts on your Facebook page “priming” your audience for the campaign. That is to say, plant the seeds in their mind that they might want to buy a gift voucher for their loved ones.

You can do this by:

  • Share a post of you decorating your salon for valentines day with a caption: Not long until Valentine’s day! We’re feeling the love here at SALON NAME, what are you getting your Valentine this year?
    Get clients thinking about who they might want to shop for
  • Share reviews, especially if you have one that mentions gift vouchers, with a caption: This review made us feel the love! Gift vouchers make a beautiful gift for the people YOU love
    Plant the seed that they could gift a voucher
  • Share ‘date night’ beauty looks or tips, specifically call out the features and benefits of your services.
    Get the client thinking about what services they might spend a voucher on
