A Hair Salon in Spokane Used Radio to Save Time and Money

April 20, 2021

After hearing about iHeart AdBuilder on the radio, the owners of Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids in Spokane, Washington decided to give self-service radio a try. They previously advertised on social media and worked with a company that managed both radio and social media for their grand opening, but they were looking to manage their own marketing in a way that wasn’t too time-consuming or expensive.

Who is Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids?

Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids is a hair salon that provides kids and their parents a great haircut experience in a fun environment. Sharkey’s Cuts for Kids is a franchise with locations across the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Israel. At the North Spokane location, every haircut includes a consultation, mini-cure, kids tattoo, balloon, lollipop, and a donation token. The donation tokens are used to donate to one of the four local organizations they’ve partnered with, allowing kids to give back to their communities.
