I know many salon owners who rely almost entirely on Facebook for their bookings and sales.

So here are half a dozen simple easy-to-do contests that can serioously boost engagement and activity among your Facebook followers.
First thing is, a Facebook contest has to be SIMPLE.
Forget messing about with third-party applications – just run a simple contest through a status update on your Facebook timeline.
The goal is to increase the engagement and reach of your business on Facebook by encouraging activity. When people LIKE, Share and Comment on your Facebook updates, you’ll get exposure to their Facebook network and increase the likelihood of showing up in their timeline in the future.
You can also use a simple Facebook contest to grow your email list. I’ll talk about this strategy last.
If you find yourself wanting to hold a more complex contest than the below, consider using one of the third party apps I mention at the end of this article.
You can have any of the six contests below running in minutes.
