Using one of these, you can have a high quality website up and running in virtually no time, and all without having to worry about issues such as complex underlying code. Bodysite Builder has a number of templates that are more than ideal for use in designing a personal training website. Five of the more popular of these templates include:

Fast Track

This is a template that goes easy on the eye, with a minimalist but elegant look. The template has minimal clutter, which means that people seeing any site based off it will find it easy to navigate and find the information that they need. The fact that it is a no-frills template also means that maintaining it is very easy as well.

Nova

If you are interested in having a website that has lots of information laid out in a manner that is not overwhelming, this template is the best one for you. At first glance, it looks simple enough, without any clutter or too much media. However, each page has the potential to hold lots of information and links to other utilities and pages.

Vital

The vital template is designed to offer essential information on the web page in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Links to other pages within the site are via tabs, which gives the page a clean, elegant look. It also has just enough room for a few images to give the page some life, but without overloading it with media. The fact that this template is so simple also means that the resultant websites are likely to be less data intensive for your potential customers. In fact, the site is likely to open fast, even when viewed from a mobile device!

Vision

There are times when you may want the page to be bold and attractive, and the Vision template would be the best candidate for this. You can use multiple colors as the backgrounds for the top and bottom of the page. This allows you to use color combinations that evoke mental images of activity and vigor, which is what you want when designing a fitness website. When you combine this with the appropriate pictures, you will end up with a site that will make people want to try out your services even before reading the text on the page.

Uplift

This template makes use of comforting, earthy colors for the background. It has also been laid out in such a manner that all the important links are visible and within easy reach. Your customers are unlikely to have a difficult time finding whatever they want on the site if you use this template to put up your site. It also has a professional look and feel, which gives your business the same powerful impression.

This communication will help you to develop strong relationships with your clients, making them see you as a chiropractic brand to reckon with.

No one in business has to be told about the importance of having a website. To make sure that you attract traffic to your site, you should give visitors something that will keep them coming back. You should write content that is interesting, engaging and well written, as people always want to read good quality content.

10 Basic Tricks For Your Website To Blossom

Whether you are offering chiropractic services or are a fitness trainer, you want to have a website that will entice both new and existing customers. There is nothing like a clunky and cluttered website to drive away customers. Here are great tips for improving the key aspects of your website in order to make it enticing and attractive, and blossom into a real winner on the net.

Navigation

Put a good thought into site layout so that your visitors can navigate easily. All important sections should be listed prominently and if possible, link as many pages coherently as this move allows your site to be user-friendly.

Branding

Branding is key and you want to incorporate memorable elements such as your logo and color scheme into your website. Your company logo should be prominent on the home page and make sure you put it in all subsequent pages so as to promote your brand.

Home page

This is the first contact with your visitors so make sure that they are able to tell immediately what this website is all about. If the fitness training service is your line of business, then putting call to actions like “get started now” or “buy now” should be visually prominent on your home page.

Content

If you sell services or products online, make sure to provide complete and clear information to give your prospective customers the confidence to click and buy. Putting too much content on a page can make your audience get afraid to scroll down. However, too little content can make your customers suspicious too so strike a right balance.

Refresh content

If you want to draw your customers back, then you need to update your content often. A blog can be a great way to renew your content because you don’t have to make lots of changes on the code.

Think SEO

As you design your site, put those search engine optimization aspects in mind. Splashy graphics and photos can be great, but they cannot be read well by search engines. You can have a text link that prompts audience to view your portfolio instead of a using a graphical button. Texts are easily read by search engines.

Colors

Using complementary colors can make your text easily readable. For example, don’t clash colors such as text in red color placed on a blue background. This will make it hard to read and can turn off visitors.

Be accessible

Always ensure that your contact information is at the top or bottom of each and every page of your web site.

Sound

Did you know that music that plays automatically when visitors load your page can be an automatic turnoff? If you have sound, make sure it is easily and pleasantly disabled. The same goes for videos; if possible, have a button requesting your visitors to play the video to see what you offer or how things are done – only if your video is great!

Images

We all know the power of pictures and images. If for instance you are training people for physical fitness, then you should know that good photography is key by showing how you actually train and a few photos of yourself looking fit while training will certainly help!

Bodysite Builder offers complete websites for professions such as fitness trainers, physical therapists, massage therapists and chiropractors among others. Our websites are easily customizable and you can edit them easily to suit your changing needs!

2 Ways to Keep Your Body Working Business Organized Through the Holidays

 Whether you run a massage therapy, fitness training, or a physical therapy business, we all get the same amount of stress over the holidays.  It can get hectic and overwhelming with keeping up with your business and your life outside of work already, so the holidays can end up having an opposite effect then the reason they were created for (you know, that word called “joy”).  And since we appreciate our customers so much, we thought we could help some of you out over the holiday season by first, taking a few deep breaths and slowly letting it out, and then follow the next two tips.

 1.   Make Everything Digital

This will help your business tremendously! If you are on the go with your business and always have your phone on you, this will be especially helpful for you.  Link your appointment calendar that’s on your website to give you text message alerts to let you know when you have new appointments, let your clients know that you are available via e-mail, and make client forms digital and “file” them in a tablet or to your computer.

 2.   Make A Lot of To-Do Lists

Need to organize those drawers of paper work and pens you have all over the place?  Need to catch up on the latest techniques and research for your field?  Want to check in with some clients that you haven’t from in a while?  Make a to-do list of all the things you need to catch up on, and prioritize them.  There are apps on all the smart phones now that can help with this, and the iPhone even comes with it’s own To-Do list called “Reminder”.  And if it helps you more to do it the old fashioned, pen-to-paper kind of way, by all means, please do it!  Whatever you feel most comfortable with.

4 Ways to Get More Fans on Your Business Facebook Page

In the beginning of setting up your business Facebook page, it can be a little slow and discouraging when trying to get it started.  Here are some ways to get the ball rolling on increasing you fanbase. 

1.)   Suggest to Your Friends

This should be your first step when you make your Facebook page.  If you didn’t, don’t worry, you can do it now.  In your Facebook’s admin panel, there will be a little box on the right that says, “Invite Friends” on it.  It should come up with a list that shows your friends.  Click on the “invite” button to invite your friend to like your page.  This helps, because when your friend “likes” your page, it will appear in their friend’s feed, giving your business page more exposure.

2.)   Put a “Like Us” Box Up

You’ve probably seen this before.  On a business’s website, they will have a little box that has the Facebook thumbs-up symbol, and says, “Like Us on Facebook!”  Add one of these to your business’ website and/or blog.   This will attract the customers you have already to become a fan on your Facebook.  You might even want to ask them to like your Facebook page in person. 

3.)   Interact with Users You Already Have

Produce great content, and post it to your Facebook page.  Ask your fans questions, and try to get them involved.  The more responses and replies you get the more exposure to other people’s newsfeed you get.  Ultimately, this means more possible fans.

4.)   Pay for Them

This might seem like an easy way out, but it a foolproof way of getting more fans.  Facebook is very particular in the way they do advertising, and exposure, and it works the best to do it through them.  On Facebook, there is a button that says “Promote Page” and click on it.  It will pop up with a daily budget that you can select, depending on how much you would like to spend.  After selecting your budget, you can edit the duration of how many days you would like to run this ad.  You pay for it, then Facebook takes care of the rest, and the Facebook fans start to roll in.  Simple as that.

3 Ways to Give Your Clients a Holiday Treat!

The holiday season has arrived, and everyone is spreading the love and cheer.  Try not to forget to show your clients your appreciation for their business (and friendship) by doing something nice for them in exchange for coming to you with their trust.  So, for this holiday season, for the customers that have been giving so much support to your business, let’s give them something in return!

 IMGP8372-2

 1.     Send them a Holiday Greetings Card with a Twist

Why not buy a pack of holiday cards, or design and print a pack of holiday cards that have something to do with the type of business you have, and send them out to your clients.  You could go with your most frequent customers, or you could send them to all of them to try to get one-timers to come back.  Slip a coupon that is good for the next time they come in, and offer 10-15% off the service or product they buy with the presentation of the coupon.  This will guarantee that they come in, and it will generate more business for you. Just remember to put an expiration date on the offer!

 2.    Send a Newsletter or Social Media Announcement with a Gift

Take a moment out of your busy week, and write up a short message expressing your gratitude towards your customers, and give them a gift of an extra 10 minutes added onto their massage (or another service you provide) if they book it in between December 15, and January 10.  Of course you can mix and match to however you wish, and make it to your own liking.

 3.    Make a Gift-Basket Raffle

This is a quick and easy way to do something nice as a gift to your clients.  The only con is that there is only one gift basket to give away. In the gift basket, you should include a gift certificate, and products that you recommend or sell.  Announce it with a photo on your social media platforms, and tell your clients that if they come in for a massage from you in the months of December and January, you will give them two raffle tickets to enter for the gift basket.  One lucky winner will get the gift basket to take home!
