Design and technical parts of websites

Squarespace

Squarespace is a great platform and easy for beginners to use, but you’ll soon find out how limited you are. Want that box to do something fancy? You have to code it. Want your text to be different on your blog? Custom code time! Need an FAQ with fancy dropdowns? Hope you know that CSS.

Not only do you have to know code (or hire someone that does) but you have to pay MORE for the ability to edit it in Squarespace! Blossie Sites allows you to connect your email list, have a robust online store, and have all the blogging power of WordPress! Plus, similar to Squarespace, because we are a managed platform you never have to worry about updating your plugins!

Wix

Our WordPress hosting platform Blossie Sites is very similar to Wix with the “drag-and-drop” building capabilities. The biggest issue with Wix sites is when the sites are viewed on a phone or tablet. Your site can look awesome on WIX and not so awesome everywhere else. With Blossie Sites, you can customize your site for every screen and preview it by hitting one key on your keyboard. That’s what we call winning!

ShowIt

WordPress is pretty similar to ShowIt in drag-and-drop building ease, with the added benefits of a WordPress blog. How are they different? Blossie Sites is WordPress so there is no need to upgrade plans or have a different website just for your blog content. It’s all included, in one place. Need a shop? Showit can’t help ya. At Blossie we offer the option to import your products from and design page layouts for the internet’s best eCommerce platform, Shopify. This functionality even works with Shopify’s Lite plan ($9/mo.) Plugin updates are handled for you at Blossie Sites as well. We have tons of pro plugins and you never need to worry about updating them only to have them break your website.

Websites for coaches

Your coaching website should help you get more clients and sell more consulting sessions without you having to rely on cold calls or emails so it is important to find a theme that suits your business needs the best, has not only a beautiful design, bet also all the functionality and pages you need to focus on consulting your clients as soon as possible and without spending hours of time making the website look right!

It doesn’t matter if you’re a high-performance business consultant, financial advisor, life coach, or health guru. The right WordPress theme can help you make a great coaching or consulting website in 2022 more quickly.
