Increasing your website's rank and traffic has never been so simple. Looking at ways to give our clients more control over their websites, we knew we could provide more useful tools. We noticed the power behind updating and adding events to a website was a great way for them to boost participation. We created a template that will allow you to provide dates, locations, and information that guests would need to know before attending. There is also an RSVP feature that can be added to help you find the total participants to help plan the success of your gathering. Each time you add a new event you can utilize our email solutions to let all your subscribers know that you have a new event planned. Once you have hosted your event, you can take all the pictures and upload them to the website to allow guests to find copies and share with their family and friends. Add multiple photos to an album in a photo gallery or update select photos across the site by selecting where you want the photo to go. Photo galleries and regularly updated photos are a great way to show customers how active your business is and how much fun you are having. As we added more features to the website we learned that things could become a bit overwhelming and something could be missed. Customer service with your clients is very important and missing a response could ruin a relationship. We have added a news feed to your dashboard that instantly updates whenever there is a change or an update to the website or from a client. We also set up SMS/email notifications to further improve your awareness. Choose your preferences to when you want to be notified and never miss a blip again.
