basically what I'm hoping for is a beautiful site that will allow me to connect with my clients and potential clients. Give them all the info they need. And obviously hopefully be top of the list with search rankings for massage and reiki for women in and around Gawler in South Australia.
As far as design goes, I'm after something that is stylish, simple and easy to navigate.
I have some design elements and colours that I'm working with for this business that I'd like to incorporate to have the branding flow through. Please find some of my files attached to give you a bit of an idea. I've some ideas on how I would like it to look.
In terms of pages I guess ideally you can create me a personalised template that incorporates my branding design elements. I'd also like to have each page have my contact details in a prominent position so each page is effectively a biz card. And I'd like to be able to add pages as I need.
To begin with I'm thinking I'd like ~
A home page
Locations ~ I want to include pictures and address details for both of my locations.
Relaxation Massage ~ what you can expect
Reiki ~ what is it and how it works.
About me. my qualifications & experience
Testimonials (possibly, I haven't actually collected these yet).
I'd also like a subscribe box that collects name and email address. (possibly plugged into a mailchimp list?)
And of course I'd like to have it hooked up to my facebook page too. So people can click through and like my page. And also so people can share my site pages on facebook.
Two special features that I've been thinking about but that I'm not quite sure about the feasibility of are:
Online scheduling. So having a calendar where people can book and possibly even pay online.
I'm half way through a year long coaching program atm, and I know that this kind of scheduling technology is widely used by coaches. Not quite sure if it can work for me in this instance? I've heard Google calendar offers an appointment booking feature for free. but haven't looked into it properly yet.
The other thing is the possibility of offering gift vouchers for sale direct from my site. I haven't looked into this properly to see how other people are doing it. I'm guessing it would need to be some kind of program that generates a voucher at the time of purchase so it includes a unique voucher number and the applicable expiry date.
Anyway, the special features are not must haves. They could possibly just be really cool features. So I wanted to just check the cost and practicality of them at this stage.
Thank you for taking the time to quote this for me.
