Website Design Options For Pet Groomers & Pet Businesses
Are you looking for ideas and inspiration for your dog grooming or pet business website?
Do you want to set up a website for your business on a budget but don’t know where to start. There are so many different options out there it can get confusing. Over the years I have tried out quite a few different ways of building websites on a budget but the main three I have used and still use now are, Weebly, SmugMug and WordPress. I will explain some of the differences between all three.
With Weebly you can build a website easily without any technical expertise, they have a drag and drop builder, custom fonts to choose from and you can use video’s for your backgrounds. I have used Weebly for Pet Businesses, Dog Breeder websites and helped dog clubs set up sites in the past with Weebly because it is easy for everyone to use. Weebly will let you build a FREE website, you just have to sign up to get started with the basic plan. Weebly have responsive templates to work from or Themes as Weebly call them but they are ready made websites for you to add your content and photos to. To connect your own domain name the plan costs £4 per month when paid annually. To compare all plans visit Weebly
SmugMug websites are designed for photographers I have used SmugMug for a number of years now, I had three at one point. One for my photography, one as a dog breeder website and one for my grooming website. The SmugMug websites are designed to make your photos look better, and you can add content blocks to the pages like the text and headings and build a regular website, with drag and drop elements. You can make a custom photo website in minutes with SmugMug. What I like about SmugMug is the unlimited photo storage which comes as standard with all the plans, you can store all your photos on the website and they are easily accessible at full resolution. SmugMug don’t have a free plan but they have a free 14 day trial to try it out. The basic SmugMug plan starts at $66 per year. SmugMug is ideal for dog groomers if you have great photos to show off you can create a portfolio with a SmugMug website. Save 15% off any new SmugMug account >>>>
With WordPress the design possibilities are endless. WordPress is free but you need web hosting to be able to use it on the internet. There are lots of web hosting companies with cheap offers going but you really should go with a decent hosting company like SiteGround or bluehost if you are going to set up WordPess website. SiteGround and bluehost always have good offers on which are worth taking advantage of, and it’s worth paying just a few pounds more for the level of service you will recieve. A WordPress website will take a lot longer to build than a Weebly website but there is no comparison to what you can create with WordPress and how you can customise every part of the website.
