Makeover Session 2.3: The Big Reveal(s)

Have you ever asked a perfectionist for something before it’s ready?

The artist before the painting is complete?

The chef before the dish is properly seasoned?

The sister or wife or mother or girlfriend before her makeup is on juuuuust right? (Gosh, I know that one all too well.)

Well that’s exactly what I did with Sarah from WebChalet and Jon from…

When requesting that we reveal Holly and Alanna’s respective makeover websites before they were 100% ready to go.

Here’s Why An Imperfect Website Was Needed

I had to twist their arms to “reveal” an imperfect website for two main reasons:

1) Be transparent about the website building process and make clear that vacation rental websites are not delivered perfect out of the box.

2) Allow us room to improve in front of the public eye, and with a flawless website, that’s much more difficult

So what you see below are most certainly NOT the final products (you’ll be watching them transform with each session).

That being said, they ARE gorgeous examples of what a vacation rental site can be.

Each was built over the course of a few weeks, but my wonderful partner platforms can get a new client up and running within a few days. I simply can’t express my appreciation and excitement about the quality of work (and the standards of communication in the process) that these companies produce for such affordable rates.

Taking a page out of last week’s 7 Sticky Features Of The Best VR Websites, here are our new websites.

1.  Holly Webb’s build using WebChalet

Feel free to use the comments section below to share your thoughts about our first glances of these new vacation rental websites.

If you are following along, maybe share your own site in progress and we can all give feedback?

Lastly, stay tuned for the next session when the fun really begins!!!
