What is the Client-Search Directory?
StyleSeat has a client search directory on our homepage for clients to find and book beauty and wellness professionals near them. Here’s how it works:
Clients can search by:
- New Client Offer
- Online booking
- Available now
Get added to the Directory:
Once you’ve completed these steps, you will be added to the directory. You can check out how search looks by logging out and going to styleseat.com. You can search by name or service in the left field, and location (city or state) in the right field.
Tip: If you don’t see your self in the first batch of pros that surface in results, try zooming out on the map to see more pros in the area you searched. The way search-by-location works is that it pulls results from the center of the location searched, so the further you are away from the center of your city, the more you have to zoom out on the map.
How does search work?
Search works with a specific algorithm that takes various elements into account. Location of client, city searched, did the client search by city and state, what key words they typed in, etc. You will come up first sometimes, but other profiles might be closer to the search criteria that the client entered. It’s important to note that the more you promote your page, the higher your chances are of surfacing first in search.
How can I improve my search results position?
- Upload tons of high quality photos
- Ask your clients and friends to “Like” your StyleSeat page by clicking the Facebook Like button
- Ask your clients and friends to heart your photos (tip: if you heart other pro’s photos, they are more likely to “heart you back”)
- Encourage your client to leave you a recommendation on your page (hint: If you have your “Client Thank You emails” turned on, StyleSeat will automatically send out an email thanking your clients, and asking them to leave you a recommendation)
Clients can filter their search criteria by “online booking”, which means only the pros that offer online booking will surface. Find out how our FREE online booking works here.
