Top 3 Factors That Make Your Kids Entertainer Website Ineffective

Look at What Could Be Costing You Bookings

Many kids entertainers are losing out on a lot of bookings because they have ineffective websites. And usually it’s not their fault.

Either they don’t have the technical know-how on how to make a website that, in Colette Kelly’s words, “turns lookers into bookers” (hey, we’re kids entertainers, not web design and coding experts, right?), or they don’t know where to find a professional who understands both web design and the kids entertainment market.

Luckily, Colette has the remedies to the top 3 website problems kids entertainers face. Listen to this podcast to learn not only some practical tips on how you can improve your page load speed and make your website look nicer, but also the ultimate solution to kids entertainers’ web design needs.

    Hi Colette. Another great podcast – thank you. Wanted to let you know that the URL in the download is incorrect (I believe). The developer Google page does not require a www and when used, it doesn’t load. I tried it without the www and it worked.

    Now this may only be happening for me, but I though you would like to know.

  • Thank you Brian! Glad you enjoyed the podcast.
