– Website Design For Workshops –

The Benefits of a Website For Workshops

Lower Commission Costs as compared to 3rd Party Websites

Platforms such as Airbnb and Eventbrite have quite high commission costs. Having your own website on which you offer Workshops means that the you do not have to pay this commission. This can accumulate to large amounts, especially when you have returning customers. Owning a website for workshops is not exclusive. This means you can have it work alongside your Airbnb and Eventbrite account as an additional booking platform. You can divert customers to the website while still taking advantage of the publicity your Airbnb and Eventbrite listings give you.

More Customers

Having a website for your specific workshop will be very beneficial. People will be more likely to find it on search engines like Google. You will not be found if people look for generic terms such as ‘Workshops’, but will have a high chance of being found if they look for a specific workshop. For example: ‘Stained Glass Workshops’. Here you will have a great chance of being found, and not only will they find you, these people will be looking for the exact workshop that you offer. Kugler Design will guide you to achieving the best results for your Workshop website.

Promote your Workshop in Detail

Your own Workshop website will mean that you can have all the information you wish to be displayed on the website. Workshops in general are quite visual in nature, so displaying pictures and videos of past workshops are a must. Additionally, you will be able to add large amounts of information in regards to the Workshop, such as the history of the craft, outlining the techniques that people will be learning and possibly a section where people can prepare for the Workshop before they get there.

Pictures and videos of past workshops, pictures of your own creations and information about yourself would be required. Further information such as the history of the craft and notes on the techniques that will be learned will be beneficial.

3 – The initial design process

Before we start the initial design, feel free to send us any designs or elements that you enjoy from other websites so that we can incorporate them into your website.

After this stage, there would still be room to make small changes regarding style and colour but major changes may add extra working hours on our part and may be charged. Hence it is important to be satisfied with the initial design and let us know any thoughts at this stage. We then send you the design when the homepage and perhaps one other page are complete and you let us know what changes you would like if there are any to make.

4 – The main design process

At this stage we have the rough outline of the website completed, have received feedback from you, and are now starting work on the final design. Small changes are still possible and we create all the pages that are required on the website. Features are installed and styled. We near the finished product.

5 – Finalising and making the website Live

Up to now the website would be created under a subdomain of Kugler Design eg: www.yourworkshop.kuglerdesign.com At this stage we would request the outstanding balance be paid in full and upon receipt the website is put Live on the domain you chose. Your website is now finished!

Recurring Cost Extras

Domain name registration

Securing and purchasing a domain name is the first step one needs to take on their journey to creating their own website. This is the name that people type in browser eg www.your-domain-name.com

This is offered as an optional extra as many may already own their own domain name. This is an annual charge and price can vary on a number of factors such as the name itself, and if you have a .com, .net, .de or .fr website.

from €20/per annum

Hosting and Maintenance 

Hosting is an important service as this is what makes the website accessible. The Host is a server (type of computer) that has the website on it and sends people the website when they look for it.

Maintenance is commonly overlooked as many think it is easy to host a website. In fact, it is, and many will prefer to host it themselves. However, when something goes wrong, it can be very difficult and expensive to find out what the problem is in order to fix it. Kugler Design offers Hosting and maintenance, and this can also be purchased at an annual charge of €250.

€15/ per month

Kugler Design can create new content for your website on a weekly, monthly or bimonthly basis. We create content based on techniques, advancements in the craft, history, or your latest workshop. We can also write about any topic you choose.

from €30/per month

Ad Campaigns

Online Ad campaigns are, after social media, probably the most effective methods of getting customers to view your Workshop website whether they are searching google, looking at facebook, or browsing the web.
