Four years ago, I loved my website to pieces. I actually thought that I had the best darn website out there. I loved the color. I loved the layout. Oh heck, there wasn't much about it that I didn't like. However, that was four years ago.
The truth of the matter is that my website became a bit of a pain. Whenever I wanted to make a change, I had to put a request in to my webmaster. And while I like her (and still do), I knew I needed a better alternative.
While surfing around, it became evident that a) I could spend bookoo bucks b) I could pick a theme with pre-loaded photos (this cookie-cutter approach wasn't going to work for me. If my goal is to spearate myself from the other stagers, then it needed to represent ME and ONLY ME) and c) I could spend bookoo bucks (yes, I know. I repeated myself).
The solution was to build one for myself. I knew Michelle Minch (a very well respected home stager in Los Angeles) had recently built hers and so I called her up.
Here's what my new website looks like. You can click on the picture and be taken directly to the site in a new window.
When we finished, I couldn't help but think that we could be doing this for other home stagers. I remember that conversation vividly.
Why not give home stagers, everywhere, the same opportunity we just provided ourselves?
- Why not give them the opportunity to have an SEO optimized website which will help get them found in Google.
- Provide a non-cookie-cutter approach so that they can be assured that their website won't look like others
- Make it easy for them to change their own content
- Make them beautiful and eye-catching
- Make them affordable
Michelle agreed. We knew we could assist home stagers everywhere with all of the above and more.
We worked feverishly on finding anything and everything we could on SEO, on WordPress, on designs and spent months doing it. And now with those busy months behind us, we are ready to launch our company called Easy Designer Websites.
As a sponsor of the RESA Convention, being held in Vegas on January 24th - 26th, we'll have a booth. If you're planning on attending, please be sure to stop by.
