The platform has been around for a while and has developed the major core features you’d need in a website builder. The pages are optimized for mobile right out the gate, the website builder uses a drag-and-drop page builder, simple forms for contact information and email collection, and even a photo library with stock images. Many additional features also help you run a business and not just run a website.
Design & templates
The template collection available is limited to only seven options for you to test out. Each one has a specific focus such as gardening, pest control, HVAC, etc. so you can choose the one that makes the most sense for your business. If your business isn’t represented within the limited selection, just choose one that’s relevant to an extent and then edit it to meet your needs.
Even though there aren’t many options, what’s available is high-quality and can serve as a good starting point for most websites. Keep in mind that a template cannot be changed after the fact and you can only start a new website. The good news is that it’s fully customizable so you can build something from the ground up if the need arises.
One of the powerful features of GoSite is the versatile way you can request payments from your customers. It can be done in person, via SMS, or using email. There are integrations with Apple and Google pay so customers can use their digital wallets. One of the best parts is that GoSite releases payments within 24 to 48 hours and charges a fee of 2.9% + $0.30.
Booking and scheduling
Booking is often a challenge because of availability and coordination with clients. GoSite handles this issue by providing a booking widget that can be displayed on your site. It shows availability so clients can visit it and book a convenient time that works with your schedule. It handles all the other backend processes such as sending reminder emails, cancellations, or rescheduling.
Online reviews are an important part of any business. The company allows you to pull in reviews from multiple platforms such as Yelp and Google. You can then reply or otherwise manage them from your GoSite dashboard. You can also initiate a review collection campaign via SMS and email to ensure you have a steady flow of customer testimonials flowing in.
Making sure the right information is displayed across listing sites at all times can be challenging. With the GoSite platform, you’re able to update your information in one place and it’s automatically pushed to the right websites. You don’t have to worry about outdated information floating around.
