    How Do I Build & Edit My Website Using Salonbuilder?

    Unlike most web site development options, SalonBuilder gives you easy to use point and click tools to create your salon web site, and update it at any time without additional fees or hassles.

    You get the tools for uploading and inserting your own pictures and logos into your site as well as simple text editing features to tell your story exactly as you like to your web site visitors.

    Rather than paying a web guy or gal every time you want to change your web site imagery, update your hours, or add to your service menu... you can just log in and do it yourself in minutes, with no special knowledge or computer software required. In addition you can do it from ANY Internet connected computer anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day!

  • What Makes SalonBuilder Better Then Other Website Builders?

    We know that we have created an especially good system for our customers, because we know the professional salon and spa industry.

    There are many sites that claim to give you "self-serve" tools. but we have specially designed our tools, imagery, and text for YOU - the salon owners, stylists, therapists, technicians, and managers that work in this great industry.

    Most of our customers are hands-on people that make a living behind the chair. So we don't expect you to know the ins-and-outs of web development and programming. In fact, you will have a fully functional web site up and running within moments of registering, without typing a single line of code.

    We have designed our system to be really easy for you, even if you know nothing about computers.

    We are constantly improving our services based on the suggestions of our members. The best thing is, every great suggestion we get, helps to benefit all of our members. So everyone wins. What's more, we are really aware of all the intricacies of the salon industry, and have worked with manufacturers, distributors, consultants, educators, and everyone in between.

    We are the developers for some of the industry's hottest sites and technologies, including the new BehindTheChair.com, Your Beauty Network, Salon Training International, Wella USA (Sales Force Automation), BioIonic.com, as well as the Paul Mitchell The School web site and partner schools, and the Masters Audio Club, just to name a few. So we really try to understand your unique needs and communicate to you in a way that makes sense.

    A testimonial from a former member: "Just wanted you to know that I had another site built and I am really regretting my decision to leave Salonbuilder!! I have paid a HUGE amount of money for this site and it has been a hassel from start to finish! Wouldn't be suprised to see me back at Salonbuilder sometime soon!!!"

    Can I Use a Unique Design or Can I Make Changes to Existing Designs?

    We have several options for making your website unique and different. You can enter into our Custom Design Program and make changes to existing templates (colors, navigation buttons, etc), or have an entirely unique design created for you. You can use outside designers or work with our design team to capture the style that best reflects your Salon or Spa. The pricing for this program depends on the design elements you want changed or created. Feel free to contact us with your ideas and we will get back to you with pricing and detailed info about our program. You can also find more information on Custom Designs inside the membership section after you register for your free trial.

    I Already Have a Website, Why Should I Switch to SalonBuilder?

    It depends on this single factor: Is your web site actually Making you Money? Or is it just Costing you Money?

    If you already have a successful web site, then we congratulate you and encourage you to keep doing whatever it is you've been doing to get to where you are today. But one thing we consistently hear from our members is "I used to have a site, but every time I wanted to make a change, I had to call the web guy, waited two weeks, and then got charged an arm and a leg!" And half the time the change wasn't even correct! Or it cost more than you were quoted. We believe in empowerment, so we give you the tools to make these changes yourself and get them right the first time.

    And even better, we offer you some fabulous options to turn your site into a real money-making machine. By selling gift certificates and products, and taking appointments online, you can build customer loyalty, save administrative costs in your salon, free up the phones for new clients, and take orders 24/7 even when nobody is behind the front desk.

    Can I Use My Domain Name With My Website?

    If you already have a domain name registered you CAN use it with a SalonBuilder website. You will need to make a simple change to your Domain Name Servers (DNS) to allow us to host your website but there is no fee associated with the change. Detailed instruction on this change can be found in the membership section after you register for your free trial. It's really easy to do and if you need help we have customer service rep's ready to assist you.

    Can I Try SalonBuilder Out Before I Pay Money for it?

    You bet you can! We wouldn't ask you to choose your salon chairs without giving you a chance to sit on them! So we offer you a 30-DAY FREE TRIAL of SalonBuilder with absolutely NO OBLIGATION to remain a member.

    You get 30 full days to build out your web site, customize your service menu, add your own imagery and text, and really get comfortable with this awesome service. You get full access to every tool and every article on the site.

    In addition, you can even try out our special features like gift certificate sales and appointment booking for 60 DAYS before you pay us anything for those features. If you choose to remain a member, then we simply bill you once a month for as long as you stay with us. There are no required set-up fees, no long-term obligations, and no "early cancellation" fees. Just a single, monthly billing that is conveniently charged to your credit card.

    If it's not right for your business, you can cancel with just a few clicks, right online...no hassles no calls.
