      For those of you who are taking care of your own website and designing it yourself, who or what site management software are you using? We’re looking at a redesign and moving away from ChiroMatrix. It’s just hard to know which company is the best to work with now. Looking for one that is easier to use and manipulate on our own. Thanks

        I love how clean Scott’s website is. https://novosofttissue.com/

        Scott who did you use?

        When I redo mine, I’d like to do something similar.

        The only thing I’d do different than Scott’s is have a large testimonial section and give people a lower barrier to entry than calling with some sort of opt-in.

          As a professional thief of Scott’s ideas, I can tell you that making a website look like that yourself on a platform builder is either impossible or impossibly time-consuming. I use “sitey” which I highly DON’T recommend, but there are others like “wix” which are similar for editing and functionality. Steal like an artist and keep the website clean like Scott’s because 90% of people who visit your site won’t get past the front page. You want just enough info to explain why you’re different, who you’re looking for, a video, and ultimately just get them to pick up the phone and call. Also, build your webpage to look good on mobile, not on the desktop version. Again this is sheer numbers because 90% of people who see your site will be on their phone/tablet, especially if you’re running FB ads. I only mention this because until recently I had my website developed backward (for desktop not mobile).

            Lytle and I both used Andrew at Moosylvania and he used Squarespace. It seems to work well with social media platforms. I believe the cost was around $8000. It’s very user friendly for me to edit and add blog posts now.

            Check the interface on mobile and let me know how it looks on your phone/tablet. It seems to look fine on mine.

              I’ve heard Squarespace is NOT good for SEO. Squarespace refutes these comments. Just something to think about. Carl – have you checked your analytics for organic SEO? Do you get many patients who google you?

                Thanks for all the responses. From what I’ve seen I’m looking at Wix, Squarespace or WordPress and possibly some professional help to at least help with build out. Carl, your website looks really good, even on the mobile sites. I’m not sure I want to spend $8000 on a website though. I’d rather come to more seminars to keep my skills up. But I’m not sure I have to skill set to build it all out on my own in WordPress. Dr. Brady, it looks like you are using WordPress for the new ID site?? Do you like it and how hard is it to learn? I know you had a company help with the build out, but I thought you had mentioned doing some of the work yourself too. Thanks again guys
