Extensions giver your site volume

We provide a whole load of extensions that can be added onto your website to help it fit in with your business!

At Salon Sites, we don’t believe in tying you down to a design that comes with a bundle of added features that you won’t necessarily need or use. This is why our one-of-a-kind building process includes an extensions page, where you personally are able to tailor the add-on’s to your chosen design to suit you and your salon!

The extensions you can choose for your website range from a gallery to showcase your salon’s best photos, custom social media feeds to help spread the name of your salon, to an online shop so you can sell your salon’s products even after closing time!

Better yet, some of our designs come with free, built-in extensions as a little extra, so keep your eyes peeled for these!

If you want to find out more, please contact us and we’ll be able to talk you through any of them.

Staff Profiles

Staff Profiles

Give your team a friendly face with the Staff Profiles extension. Allowing your potential clients to get to know your salon on a more personal level by reading the individual profiles of your salon directors, stylists and even receptionists!

This can often help customers feel more comfortable coming to your salon and seeing the people that they’ve already seen on the site. It gives your business a personality – and we all know how important a personality is. It can be the difference between keeping a customer for life or never gaining that customer in the first place. So a “meet our team” page very often is the most visited page on your website.

Newsletter Signup

Newsletter Signup

A newsletter is a great way to keep in touch with your clients between appointments. Send out newseltters about new styles, new staff members, new services, deals and offers and just about anything else you can think of.

We’ll add a newseltter sign-up to your website, a quick two-field form asking for a name and email address. When filled out it will automatically add that person to your customer database. We’ll provide you with access to our mass mail system to send your newseltters from. Over time this will build your marketing database and the number of customers you can contact regularly, reminding them to book into your salon more often!

User Management

User Management

As standard with a Salon Sites website you get just one user account to make changes with, one username, one password. But perhaps you want a member of your staff to be able to log in to post images or blogs without touching anything else?

Take a little bit of the weight off your shoulders – user management gives you control allowing you to set up additional user accounts, usernames, passwords and so on, keeping you in control.

Custom Map

Custom Map

Sometimes a standard Google map on your contact page can look a little boring and a little run-of-the-mill. How about one in your colours, with your logo on the pin? Something just that little bit better than the standard to really help your website stand out from the rest? Well that is what you get with our custom map extension something just that little bit more you.

Request a Callback

Request a Callback

Sometimes your customers just don’t have the time to call you or contact you right then and there, but they still want to talk to you and book with you. Rather than let them walk away and hope they remember to come back – a Request a Callback form can be really effective at capturing their details.

They simply enter their name, phone number and a day/time that would be best for them. You can then call them at a time suitable for them and take their booking – you gain a customer and they feel like they’ve had a really good service. Everyone is a winner!

Emails

Emails

Do you need a professional email address? One that has the same address as your website after the @ symbol, instead of a Gmail or Yahoo address that just doesn’t look quite as good as one that has the name of your business in it!?

Well that is what you can have with the email extension. This gives you up to 5 email addresses all the same as your website domain name with your name or your staff’s names on them. It puts a more professional, more established look on your business!

Social Media Management

Social Media Management

So if you are new to the world of Social Media managing one, two or even more accounts could be time consuming, daunting and could end up taking just too much of your time. So if you’re unsure about the best way to approach it or even if you would rather wash your hands of it and just let someone else take care of it then Salon Sites Social Media Management service could be for you!

As standard, we’ll take over the management of only one account and post for you, invite new followers, engage with your customers, reply to enquiries and work on getting you a greater social media presence, this is limited to two hours of our time per month.

But we can manage an unlimited number of accounts for you, additional accounts are added on at a cost of just £40 a month and more advanced packages and more comprehensive plans are available on request.

Booking System

Booking System

A booking system is great. It allows you to computerise and streamline your business and allow your customers to make appointments online. You can rota your staff, set lengths for appointments of different types and even better, it’s live! So if one person makes a booking then it updates right away – no double bookings!

If you buy the Accountancy Software too they’ll link together and allow you to book individual staff members and calculate their commission directly through the system. It will work out all of their earnings, your earnings and even give you information on what days are the best for what services, what offers work and which ones don’t work so well.

Booking systems are dynamic, so you’ll be able to adapt them to match up with the individualities of your business!

Copy Writing

Copy Writing

This can often be a bit of a tribulation in a website project, the part where you have to write the words for your website’s pages! If you have a website before you order from us, we can copy the content from that over onto your new one. But if you want to get it re-written then our content writing team will happily put that together for you. All we need from you are a few bullet points and we’ll write all the pages!

Our standard copy writing service covers up to 4 pages to be written for you with additional pages being charged on a page-by-page basis.

The biggest advantage here is time, writing all your content yourself can be a time consuming process, getting Salon Sites to do it for you will save you a lot of time!

Bespoke Graphics

If you would like graphics created which follow suit with your logo or current branding then we can develop these for you. This can include custom icon sets, photos with your logo embossed or watermarked onto them, advertising banners, gift card designs and much much more! Here at Salon Sites our dedicated graphic design team will create just about anything you can dream up!

Add this to your basket during your order and we’ll contact you after you’ve placed your order to find out what you need. Bespoke graphics are limited by time, our designers give you 1 hour of design time as standard. You can purchase additional hours as and when you require them.

Maintenance Package

Maintenance Package

So if you’re concerned about working on your site, or if you’re a bit of a technophobe and really don’t fancy it then our maintenance package could be for you. The same applies if you don’t feel you’re going to have the time to pay attention to it yourself.

For a low monthly fee we’ll regularly check your site, fix small errors and issues free of charge, ensure everything is functioning as it should, make sure your extensions are doing what they should be and we’ll even spell and grammar check the content for you.

There are more advanced maintenance packages available on request should you require more from us.

Twitter Account Setup

Twitter Account Setup

If you’re new to the world of Social Media setting up your own Business Twitter Account could be a little daunting. So here at Salon Sites we’ll set one up for you and show you how to make the most of it for your business!

Testimonials

Testimonials

There’s almost nothing that sells your services better than a rave-review from a happy customer! So if you’re getting positive comments all the time from your customers, why not create a specialised section of your website dedicated to displaying the satisfaction of your clients for all to see?

A testimonials section will allow customers to post their thoughts onto your website – but don’t worry, you will be able review and authorise them before they are shown on your site – so you can filter out the nasty comments that someone might decide to put up!

Slider

Slider

Sliders are a really nice and effective way to keep people on your website. These days it’s said you get about 5 seconds to keep someone’s attention. So a slider scrolling through up to ten images not only looks really nice and adds a bit of movement, but also catches their attention again and keeps people on your website just that little bit longer!

Shop

Shop

If you want to be able to make money directly through your website, then a shop is the perfect way to do this. You’ll be able to sell your customers products and packages, gift cards and so much more! Just about anything you want to be able to sell to visitors to your website can be a real money maker for you.

Online shops can add a new revenue stream to your business and help you to grow, you won’t have to dedicate space for them in your premises because your website becomes your shop space!

Shops take a little while to set up and require a PayPal, SagePay, WorldPay or an equivalent payment gateway to be opened up by the client. Salon Sites can assist with this if you would like us to. Shops also need more space on servers and therefore carry a monthly fee to ensure they keep running adequately.

More advanced shop packages are available upon request.

SEO

SEO

Search Engine Optimisation or SEO is the work to make sure your website is performing well in the Google rankings and getting found by potential customers searching the internet in your local area for your services. It usually requires at least 3 months of work to make a real impact on your rankings but it is a very important thing to do, especially in a competitive industry!

Our standard SEO package is priced at £50 a month and runs for a minimum of 3 months and includes the linking of a Google+ and Google MyBusiness account to the website to give you a Google Maps pin for your business, giving you an online locality. More advanced packages are available upon request.

Pricing Table

Pricing Table

So if you want to display your prices on your site and want to do so in a very clean and tidy way while also being able to make changes to them yourself, a pricing table would probably be advisable.

Pricing tables allow you to list your services in headed categories, set prices and make your own changes and additions at will. Pricing tables can be a little temperamental if you’re not careful when working on them, so be sure to stick to the guidelines on the Salon Sites Admin Panel User Guide. If you do break one and you’d like it fixed, then we do have to charge for the time this takes us.

To save yourself from having to worry it could be worth looking at our Maintenance Package which allows us to fix things for you as part of your plan.

Gallery

Gallery

Want to show off your work in the best way possible? Do you want a place that will display examples of your services, show off the finest examples of your work to your visitors? Then our gallery extension might be just the thing you need!

Our standard gallery extension is what is quoted for here but there are custom galleries we can produce for you if you’d like. Get in touch if you have a specific idea in mind!

Custom Social Media Feeds

Custom Social Media Feeds

So you’ve probably seen the standard boring social media feeds that look like white boxes clumsily stuck into a website – if your site background is going to be white then these might look ok! But if you’d like feeds that look right, follow your colour scheme and look like they’re a proper part of your website, then our custom social media feeds are for you!

Designed to fit seamlessly into your website, they’ll display your latest social media posts without looking wedged in or like added afterthoughts! Standard feeds are Facebook and Twitter, but additional ones for Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn and others are available at an additional cost.

Bespoke Forms

Bespoke Forms

As standard each Salon Sites website comes with a contact form which asks for a person’s name, email address, phone number and a quick message about what they want.

But if you’d like to gather more information, or even have a form which requests a booking or consultation that requires a few more fields in it, then we can custom build one for you. We would recommend that you don’t go too mad on the number of fields you ask someone to fill out, if a form is too long, people just ignore it!

Our standard bespoke form charge covers you for a form up to 12 fields. If you require additional fields we can create as many as you like, but for more than 12 we’ll have to charge you more – it just takes longer!

Blog

Blog

Your blog is the “news feed” or the “articles” feature on your website. Great for helping you pick up search traffic that you might not otherwise have done! Blogs are a great way for you to share your opinions, thoughts, pictures, videos and knowledge with the world.

Blogs increase the size of your website with every post, they are at the very least a great SEO tool that will help you pick up a following and make people aware of your business and, just maybe, pick you up a new customer every once in a while.

Analytics

Analytics

We will set up Google Analytics on your website which will email you a monthly report on the visitor activity on your website, this will include:

  • The number of visitors to your website
  • How long the average visit to your website lasts
  • Which pages people are looking at
  • Where people leave your site
  • And much much more!

The analytics are a vital and helpful tool for you to understand how much your website is doing for you, if your website is getting lots of visitors but no phone calls are coming, why not? Without knowing the activity on your website you just won’t know what questions you even need to be asking yourself.
