How is Site Kit Different than Other Website packages?
We stand alone - we’ve specialized in the professional salon industry for almost 10 years, work with hundreds of salons and stylists, and continue to grow because of the great product and great service we provide.
Most of our customers are hands-on people who make a living in the salon. We don't expect you to know understand web development and programming, so our tools are all "self-serve" and designed specifically for YOU - the salon owners, stylists, therapists, technicians, and managers that work in this great industry.
In fact, you can have a top quality, fully functional web site up and running within moments of registering, and without typing a single line of code.
We are having salon conversations every day, not only with owners and stylists, but with manufacturers, distributors, consultants, educators, and everyone in between - so we can constantly improve our services based on what you demand.
Can I Use a Unique Design / can I Make Changes to Existing Designs?
There are many options to ensure that your website is unique, different and reflects your salon. As a next step, you can enter into our Custom Design Program and make changes to our templates (colors, navigation buttons, etc), or have an entirely unique design created for you. You can use outside designers or work with our design team – Feel free to contact us with your ideas and we will get back to you with feedback and pricing. There’s more information in the membership section after you register for your free trial.

I Already Have a Website, Why Should I Switch to Site Kit?
Well – are you happy with your website? Does it reflect who you are? Is it costing you money or making you money? Can you easily update it to keep it current and take advantage of opportunities?
Our members generally have the same comments about their old sites… "every time I wanted to make a change I had to call the web guy, wait two weeks, and then got charged an arm and a leg and hope he got it right!" We give you the tools to make these changes and get it right the first time.
And, a good website can make you money – driving traffic and bookings, selling gift certificates, selling products, and taking appointments online.
Can I Use My current web address / domain name With My new Site Kit website?
If you already have a domain name registered you CAN use it with a Site Kit website.

Detailed information can be found in the membership section after you register for your free trial. It's really easy to do we’ll have customer service rep's ready to assist you.
