Beyond that beach-ready glow, Bronzage brise d’été offers all the health benefits of sunless tanning. More than eight years ago, owner Johanne Belec called upon Linkeo to build her website and online presence.
The radiant Johanne Belec has wanted to run a tanning salon since she was sixteen years old.
“As a teenager I struggled with acne. A friend suggested I try tanning and it made a huge difference. I love my job because I get to see my clients heal. Tanning can help relieve vitiligo, psoriasis, and eczema. It clears up your skin and even boosts your energy. We don’t always get enough sun in Quebec and the Vitamin D from tanning beds can lift your mood and stave off depression.”
In 2012, Johanne jumped at the opportunity to buy a tanning salon in Pointes-aux-Trembles on the Eastern tip of Montréal. The salon has both upright and reclined tanning beds, as well as devices for the face only. Recently, Johanne acquired a Collagentex machine which uses targeted infrared light to build up lost collagen and reduce pain by up to 75%.
Bronzage brise d’été is a warm and feel-good place that welcomes all walk-in customers whether they’re struggling with arthritis or headed south for vacation. It’s open seven days a week, with Johanne’s staff covering evenings and weekends.
When Johanne opened her business, everyone kept telling her she needed a website.
“I knew that if I wanted to grow my visibility, I needed to get on the Internet.”
After some research, she came upon Linkeo. Her sales rep Fernando arranged a meeting.
“He came to visit my business and I appreciated that. He took the time to explain Linkeo’s packages and how I would benefit. I found him very approachable and professional.”
So, Johanne decided to give Linkeo a try. (Fun fact: Johanne was one of Fernando’s first clients. Eight years later, Fernando’s still with us, and so is Johanne!)
Bronzage brise d’été benefits from a customized Linkeo website to showcase Johanne’s business and services. The site is optimized for SEO, maximizing its visibility on Google. Linkeo’s SEM team has also optimized the salon’s Google business profile listing, improving its position in local searches in Pointes-aux-Trembles.
To keep her website fresh, Johanne has regular meetings with her account manager. Together they work to refine her brand image and revitalize small details like her logo and photos.
“It means everything that Linkeo is always looking to improve my website. That you take my business to heart. I love that.”
On average her website brings in close to 1000 visitors per month. Out of these, 9.55% get in touch for further inquiries. Her conversion rate is well above average and considered to be excellent.
“If I think back to before my time with Linkeo, it’s like night and day. Before I got my website, I had nothing. But once I started with you, I noticed a big difference.”
During her decade in the business, Johanne has built up a beautiful community of customers.
“The other day I had a client who told me her session was like having a ‘massage of heat.’ Another 85-year-old man was so happy with his new tanned face. For me, this makes it all worth it.”
She’s a ray of sunshine and a force of nature and we’re proud to have her as a client.
