Free Pest Control Website Templates
As a pest control business owner, having a website is a key part of your business. Most pest control business owners start out by looking for free pest control website templates. While there are plenty of free and paid templates out there, there are a few things you should know before you get started. This article will help you determine if free pest control website templates are the right option for your company.
Examples of Free Pest Control Website Templates
Let’s first take a look at free pest control website template options. There are an endless number of options out there but here are a few of the most common free pest control website templates:
Option 1: Square Space – https://www.squarespace.com/
Square space will allow you to set up a free pest control website template. However, you will need to spend a lot of time customizing their templates to apply the the pest control business. In addition, you will likely need to pay for some stock photography (very expensive) at a place like istockphoto.com . Once you get your free pest control website template set up you will probably realize that it’s not as professional looking as you had hoped. You will then be on the hook for the approximately $20/month hosting cost which will be on a shared server. More on that later.
Option 2: Wix – https://www.wix.com/
Another option to consider that is similar to Square Space is Wix.com. Wix is a competitor to Square Space and essentially another place to get a free pest control website template. Once again, you will need to spend a lot of time customizing the website and the end results never look as nice as the “easy to use” interface would seem to imply. You will also need to pay for hosting costs through Wix which will run you approximately $20/month of a shared server. In addition, you will likely need to pay for some stock photography (once again very expensive) at a place like istockphoto.com .
Option 3: Get a free WordPress Template
You can download a number of free pest control website templates at Athemes.com. Similar to the pest control website builders listed above, you will need to spend a lot of time getting wordpress set up and then customizing each theme. WordPress is extremely complex and is very time consuming to learn. Each theme will have unique properties and things you need to figure out. You will likely spend hours learning your theme so that you can customize it to be a free pest control care website template you like. In addition, you will also need to find a website server provider and sign up for shared hosting or dedicated hosting. We recommend dedicated hosting which should run in the range of $40 to $60/month. In addition, you will likely need to pay for some stock photography ($$$) at a place like istockphoto.com .
You can also get a number of paid pest control website templates through Theme Forest and Template Monster. Even though these pest control website templates will speed up the process a bit you will still spend a large amount of time learning WordPress and setting this website up. Keep in mind you will still be paying for hosting every month as well!
A quick note about Shared Hosting. The “free” website builders will put you on shared hosting. To save money, these websites will buy a single server and then cram thousands of websites all on the same server. This means that when traffic to other websites (not yours) is high, your website will run slowly because the bandwidth is being used by other websites on the same server. A dedicated server ensures your website runs quickly so your customers don’t get frustrated! At PestControlDomains.com we use super fast dedicated servers.
The challenges of free pest control website templates
Before you select a free pest control website template, there are a few things you should know. Most pest control business owners are busy and looking for a fast solution. They don’t have time to develop a website from scratch. The assumption is that pest control website templates will allow you to save time and streamline the process. Unfortunately, that’s rarely the case.
Here are some of the challenges you will face with a free pest control website template:
Save time? Think again – Unfortunately most pest control website templates are not designed to be user friendly. You will spend hours learning how to modify the template to get it just right. Certain aspects of your business won’t perfectly fit the template so things will need to be adjusted. Learning how to make adjustments and modify the template are extremely time consuming.
Hosting – Before you even get started on your website template you’ll need to find hosting. You’ll need to determine the correct server to get and then install wordpress or some other software to implement your new template.
Professional Photography – Does your new pest control website template include professional photography? Most don’t. What you end up with is a cheap looking website. Professional photography makes a huge difference to your website.
SEO Optimized? – Is your new pest control website search engine optimization ready? If not, how will you implement that? If your template isn’t optimized for SEO from the beginning it’s going to be an uphill battle having your business show up on google. Most templates are not optimized! When customers google your company, they need to find you!
Mobile Friendly – Having a mobile friendly website is very important. Customers will be searching for your business from their phones. If your website doesn’t display properly you might be missing out on leads. Pest control website templates should be mobile friendly!
Data backup – If your website files were comprised or something went wrong, do you have a backup in place? Most pest control website templates don’t include any type of data backup. You will need to figure out data backup on your own.
It may seem like a time saving shortcut to get a pest control website template. Unfortunately it usually ends with a lot of time invested, frustration, and a website that doesn’t appeal to customers.
