What Makes SalonBuilder Better Then The Competition?
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 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 hassle from start to finish! Wouldn't be surprised to see me back at Salonbuilder sometime soon!!!"
Can I Use a Unique Design or Can I Make Changes to Existing Designs?
YES!! We have several options for making your website unique and different. The Complete Custom Design Program lets you choose your own colors, navigation buttons and page names, layout and style. You can use outside designers or work with our design team to capture the look and feel that best reflects your Salon or Spa. Complete custom designs start at $399.
We are now offering a new inexpensive Semi-Custom Design Program that lets you change the look and feel of your site for the low price of just $69. How it works: We start out with the layout of an existing template and you get to choose your own unique background and fonts. You can use photos, a pattern, other graphical element or a combo of those, or send us to a site you really like and we can mimic the style. We will incorporate your logo into a custom header and you get to choose a specialized font for the text on all of your pages.
To get started, when you signup, fill in your information and choose "custom design" as your template option. You can get started right away adding your services and info to your pages and all information you add to your temporary site will transfer to your custom design when it's launched. Then, send us an email with with your ideas and we will get back to you to get started on your design. Questions or concerns:firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-805-6325 ext 102
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 Link To My Current Booking or Gift Sales System?
Of course you can! In fact, we often create special graphical buttons for our clients who already have online software for booking or gift sales. We can help you get your links setup or you can do it yourself at anytime using the easy editing tools we offer with SalonBuilder.
Can I Use My Domain Name With My Website?
If you already have a domain name registered you can absolutely 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 Connect To My Facebook And Other Social Sites?
Yes you can! You have access to several options for social networking. You can add badges to your site pages and emarketing messages that link to your various profiles and social sites. You can post your special offers or promotions to Facebook using easy integrated tools (just check a box and it will post to your profile) and you can even add a Facebook social feed onto your website home page to encourage likes and get new friends. Add a Google Plus or Facebook Like button to count up your friends right on your home page or send us a request to have any other widget or button added that you want. You can even embed videos directly from youtube to your website pages! Marketing yourself using social networks is a great inexpensive way to increase traffic and get new clients.
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!
