If you’re a masseuse who’s already understood the benefits of having a website, you are faced with the difficult task of choosing how to get one! There are many ways to get an online presence for absolutely no money such as Weebly but these options are unlikely to give you the professional look that will attract you more customers. If you search online, you are now finding many companies that will create sites specifically for people in your industry such as masseuses, therapists, chiropractors and fitness trainers. Here’s a look at what’s on offer.
How Much Time Do You Have?
If you don’t have much time to edit your site and write content, a custom-built website may be for you. You’ll get your own ‘site editor’ program and get to click on what you want to change and edit it right there on the page. These work much like the site builder on Weebly which is incredibly easy to use. You can get an idea of how the page will look as you are writing or adding images. Companies offering custom-built websites will offer simple site builders that let you edit your site on your own.
Do You Want A Professional Look?
Custom-built sites come completely pre-built and ready to launch with all the tools you’ll need to customize them. This is worth paying for if you don’t have the experience or know-how to build a site on your own. The quickest way to test this is to head over to Weebly and try making a site for free. Weebly makes it very easy to write text, insert pictures, add links and so on, but it’s really hard to make it look professional. This will dramatically impact the number of customers you can find. Paying for a custom-built website is far more effective and will pay for itself in terms of increased trade.
Can You Create An Original Design?
It’s the design of custom-built sites that really set them apart from other site builders. If you choose to build a site with a company that offers templates then you have a chance of turning out with a site that looks quite similar to a number of other sites. With a custom-built site, professional designers are doing the hard work for you and giving you a unique and original site based upon your needs. A good example of this would be creating a Swedish-inspired design for a masseuse offering Swedish massage as a specialty. Outsourcing the design of your website will take the pressure off as you won’t have to find professional photos and images by yourself.
Great Customer Service
Ordering a custom-built website will get you fanatic customer service. Most design firms pride themselves on attention to detail. A custom-built website will costs around $30 per month which seems quite high compared with paying for a full website on alternatives like Weebly where you are paying around $7 per month. The big difference is the level of support you receive. With a custom-built website, you get top-quality support to help you edit your website, add a feature like a gift certificate or special offer. You’ll always have someone available on hand to help you through the process.
