How to update your site design and reduce advertising

Overview

A bespoke design is a great way for clubs to promote a professional appearance, whilst increasing website traffic and reducing 3rd party advertising at the same time!

Don't worry, you don't need to be a Photoshop-wiz to give your site a fantastic new-look. Our skilled team will work to your brief and upload the bespoke design for you.

In this blog we will discuss how to request a bespoke design, listing the many benefits and examples of our favourite designs we've uploaded already.

Why should we use a bespoke design?

Not sure whether a bespoke design will help your club? Here's why it will:

  • Boost your online presence - Stand out from your rivals with a design you're proud to promote across the web.
  • Be the brand - Create or enhance your existing branding by matching colours, fonts and club motto.
  • Increase sponsorship income - Create premium sponsor placements in your website header and approach new or existing sponsors.
  • Promote events or achievements - Add text to your header that promotes upcoming events or to show of your latest achievements.

Plan

A Bespoke design is available to all clubs subscribed to the Standard or Pro plans.

If you're already subscribed to one of these plans, you can claim your free design in the design request page within the Settings section of your control panel.
