How We Tripled the Growth Rate of a Local Nail Salon

Poshy Nails Salon

Poshy Nails is a nail salon located in Dural NSW, specializes in all thing’s nails.

Services offered include manicure, pedicure, nail art, waxing, eyelash extensions, spray tan, facials and make-up.

The need of a continuous stream of new clients is essential and crucial to the business.
The client’s bookings were slowing down during the Winter Seasons. They wanted to increase their customer base to keep their 7 Nail Technicians busy so they don’t have to let anyone go.

The Challenge

On the first day of implementing the strategy, it immediately generated 10 leads, which overwhelmed the business owner.

The Solution

To overcome this challenge, we setup an automated SMS based Customer Relationship Management Software (CRM) and had our internal team send texts and book appointments on their behalf.

The client only gets an email when we booked an appointment so she can mark it in her calendar.

This strategy resulted in 30% appointment booking rate with 0 involvement from the business owner.

General Facebook Strategy

Tangy Digital created a dedicated landing page with a Manicure and Pedicure offer. 

We split tested five (5) different images and three (3) Ad copies on Facebook to make sure we created a winning Ad.

The Results

With the above strategies implemented, the results were as follows:

343 Leads in under 3 Months
Around 87 Booked Appointments
$500 Lifetime value of a client
$43,500 Lifetime Value in booked appointments

A Total Ad Spend of $1207 and a 3600% lifetime value Return of Investment (ROI).

How we “forced” a post to go viral with 1000+ comments and boosted ticket sales

Australian Badminton Open

The Australian Badminton Open is Australia’s largest and most prestigious badminton tournament.

This year, they had the top badminton athletes from around the world including 2 times Olympic Gold Medalist Lin Dan and many other legends.

Their Goal
Badminton Australia wanted to promote this event with a limited budget, and generate awareness and engagement amongst all the badminton fans and players within Sydney.

The Challenge

Because Badminton is not a well-funded sport in Australia, they had a limited budget to work with as well as a small demographic. From our initial research, we have found that there were only around 40,000 badminton fans within Sydney, which is less than 1% of the population.

The Solution

We ran a two-part Facebook advertising campaign to maximise the engagement and response from their limited budget.

Step 1: Australian Badminton Open Ticket Giveaway
Case Study - Australian Badminton Open
In order to generate a large boost of engagement, we started off with a giveaway of 4 tickets, badminton rackets and more. 

The requirement of entry was to comment why they wanted to win. 

We had over 1000 comments, many of them were stories about their personal experiences with badminton as well as how badminton has affected their life. 

This connected badminton fans all around Australia as they started their own conversations within the thread.

We linked the post to what we call a Messenger Bot, which automatically messages anyone who enters the giveaway. 

The reason this is important is because it gives us an opportunity to communicate with our audience directly to their inbox.

Step 2: Recreate the ticket purchase experience

In the past, Badminton Australia has relied on their email list and their limited organic Facebook reach to promote ticket sales. 

To boost this up, the Tangy Digital team created a brand new landing page website which clearly outlined the tournament information, the value proposition and streamlined the ticket purchase process.

We then ran Facebook Ads featuring some competitors directing them to the new landing page. 

From this campaign, we were generating clicks from as little as 9 cents each, which is 11x cheaper than the industry standard.

The Results

We reached 74% of the badminton community in Sydney from these campaigns, and generated clicks to purchase tickets from as little as 9 cents each. 11x lower than the industry standard!

How We Booked Out a Landscape Architect in 57 days

Louisa is a passionate Landscape architect and qualified horticulturalist who helps homeowners turn their yards and gardens into an outdoor paradise.

As a solo business owner, Louisa has been relying on referrals and word of mouth as their only source of new clients. However, she found it to be unreliable as they had some months with plenty of clients and other months which were quieter. Hence, she wanted to create a more consistent source of new leads and clients.

Their Goal is to Generate new clients for landscape and garden design

The Challenge: Avoid time wasters and tire kickers

As a landscape architect, she must meet the client in person and perform a site inspection to provide an accurate plan and quote. However, as a solo business owner, her time was valuable and she did not want to spend her days travelling around doing quote after quote like many of her competitors were doing.

The Solution: The "Dream Garden Consultation"

We started by creating a new and unique offer which can separate them from their competition. We called it the "Dream Garden Consultation".

This is a free 15 minute over-the-phone consultation with Louisa where she learns about the client's vision, their expectations as well as their budget to determine whether they will be a potential client (or if they are a tire-kicker), and it gives her an opportunity to share her "5 Step Dream Garden Process".

If the client is a good fit, then she goes over for an in-person site assessment and quote, where she can bill for her time. (No more Free Quotes).

We created a brand new landing page which reflected her brand and her new offer, and ran 5 variations of Facebook ads, each with different messaging and personality. From our test, we found that the "personal" and informal ad worked the best, so we focused the majority of our budget on that one.


28 Qualified Leads in 57 days, which completely booked out her schedule for several months.

These weren’t just regular leads…. They were passionate read-to-go leads who desperately wanted to transform their garden. 

Take a look at some of the inquiries she received:

“Oh wow!! What an opportunity! Ok I know you specified back yard , but I have just levelled out our front yard and have nooooo idea how to design it!! We have been renovating for 15 years now (eye roll) and you think I would think I had a plan by now?? Would you pleaseeee give me some ideas?? Pleaseee:)” – Kahla


“We are trying to renno are our 2 story brick home but it’s taking such a long time to get it sorted. So in the meantime I’m thinking ahead for the garden esp around the pool area which needs redoing completely. 

Of course our $ are going into the house & deck but something has to be done with the current jungle we have & as I’m from the country/beach living in suburbia, I miss the pleasure of being surrounded by beautiful nature which I can admire & relax with each day. Also the front visage has been so ugly & unappealing for so long I really want to do something there as well, but prob on a lower scale. 

Anyway friends have had their places fully landscaped so I realise the costs involved, but perhaps with a plan we engage with some help but also put in some work ourselves to save on costs. Anyway let’s chat & maybe it’s a good future project. Thank you” – Karen

How would you like inquiries like these flooding your inbox in the next 14 days?

When we started the marketing campaign, it was like turning on a tap! I’m blown away by the power of well executed social media marketing. I certainly could not have achieved these results without Tangy Digital’s help, and I’m so excited about the growth potential it affords my business!
