Websites for Pool Builders
Updating your website is probably the single most powerful thing you can do to get more leads and improve your closing ratios. And it’s one of our specialties. After doing this for more than 15 years, we’ve figured out what makes a pool builder’s website powerful and compelling, and what doesn’t. That’s why every one of our websites must pass a 67-point quality checklist before we release it on the internet. From the layout to the menu to the content to the photos, to the “calls-to-action” on every page, we take this website business VERY SERIOUSLY.
Whether your website needs just a little help or a lot (or you have no website at all), we’ve got the right option at the right price.
Website Improvement Options
OPTION #1: Website “TUNE-UP” & “Mobile Conversion” $1,995
With our “Website Tuneup” service, we’ll fix and fine-tune as much of your existing site as possible, without actually building a brand-new website. When we’re finished, your website will have and/or be all of the following:
- Mobile-Ready, using state-of-the-art “responsive” website design.
- An appropriately adjusted Menu structure, making your website easier to navigate.
- Beneficial INBOUND links throughout the text, wherever appropriate.
- No non-beneficial OUTBOUND links on the homepage.
- Appropriately adjusted images and text wherever possible, putting more “life” into the site.
- A new and improved “contact us” webform and webpage, which includes a Google map to your facility.
- A well behaved “Style Sheet” that fixes “website no-no’s” such as poor font choices, troublesome font colors, etc.
And most importantly, you will have a cutting-edge “responsive image” photo gallery, which displays your photos in the proven preferred HTML format, which includes:
- Super-large “full screen” photos using Highslide software and responsive web design.
- Built-in slideshow capability.
- Company name and photo number on every photo.
- Your company logo watermarked on every expanded photo.
- Ample room for any text descriptions you would like to add to these photos.
- Facebook “like” button and other Social Media buttons on every photo. (Helps increase your visibility in the social media arena, without foolishly sending people away from your website.)
We will also add any additional content that you make available to us, such as:
- More “about us” information.
- More photos
- More testimonials
- More detailed explanation of your services
Payment structure is simple: 50% down payment ($997.50), and the final 50% ($997.50) on successful completion of your updated website. (It typically takes us about 30 days to complete a project like this.)
OPTION #2: NEW Custom Website $3,995
If your website lacks style, or looks out of date, then this is the option for you. We’ll give you a brand-new cutting-edge design that addresses ALL of the issues described above, PLUS puts emphasis on the MOST IMPORTANT THING to your web visitors: your pool photos. (You can see some examples here, here, here, and here.)
Note that we will use your EXISTING TEXT CONTENT, plus any new content you give us. If you ALSO want us to write custom copy that eloquently explains how great you are, you’ll need our Option #3 instead: “Total Website & Identity Package.”
Payment structure is 50% down payment ($1997.50), and the final 50% ($1997.50) on successful completion and launch of your new site. (It typically takes is around 45 days to complete a project like this.)
OPTION #3: Website / Auto-Follow-Up / Identity Package $5,995
If you really want to knock your competitors back on their heels, then this is the package for you. When we’re finished with this program, you’ll have EVERYTHING described above, PLUS:
- A complete and professionally written “identity” that clearly explains to your prospects why you are the superior choice, in a way that is interesting, believable and compelling.
- A completely built-in, automated “follow-up system” that continually reaches out and nurtures your prospects, so that when they’re finally ready to buy, they naturally think of you first.
- A highly attractive and instantly downloadable “low risk offer” (our 28 page “10 Steps to the Perfect Pool” report) on every page, to encourage your website visitors to give you their name and e-mail address, long before they’re ready to pick up the phone and call you.
Payment structure is same as above. 50% down payment ($2997.50), and the final 50% ($2997.50) on successful completion of your updated site and automated follow-up system. (It typically takes is around 45 days to complete a project like this.)
Website SPEED Fixes
Slow website speeds will FRUSTRATE your website visitors, and cause Google to LOWER your search engine rankings. Competitors with faster sites will get better rankings, and get more phone calls from happier prospects. And we don’t want that!

We’ll FIX your speed problems in less than 5 days, GUARANTEED.
We GUARANTEE an improvement of at least THREE Letter Grades, or you don’t pay us a cent. For example, we guarantee AS A MINIMUM:

- If your score is E, we’ll get you to B.
- If your score is F, we’ll get you to C.
Call us TODAY to fix your website speed problems for only $749. And we’ll get it done in 5 days, or your money back.
Website Hosting and Management Options
WEBSITE MANAGEMENT includes the addition or deletion of new photos, new testimonials, and/or other edits as needed (changing hours, etc.). Under most circumstances, we charge a flat fee of $49 per month.
WEBSITE HOSTING includes email account creation & hosting to match your website domain, plus the installation of a SSL (Secure Socket Level) Certificate, which (1) gives you better security, and (2) gives you better rankings with Google.
Your emails will be accessible anywhere in the world, as long as you have an internet connection. Works with Outlook and all other standard email programs. Normal hosting is $199 per year (or $18.99/month).
“HIGH-CAPACITY” hosting is offered for those rare circumstances where you need higher than normal hosting bandwidth and memory capacity. (This is usually because either (1) you and/or your customers are uploading and downloading a lot of files from your website on a regular basis, and/or (2) you and your employees are saving a very large number of e-mail messages on the server.) Our “High Capacity” Web hosting will give you 50 times more bandwidth and 100 times more capacity for only one additional dollar a day. High-capacity hosting is $399/year (or $35/month).

Comments on our Website Work…
“I want to thank you for taking the time to sell to the management of SSG. We’re a big company and large scale change can be incredibly time consuming.
“The work you and your team put into our website has been incredibly beneficial to me in multiple ways. First, leads procured through my referrals can comfortably be sent directly to the site to view pictures and information prior to my coming out to their home.
“Second and more importantly, for those that find us online for the first time, we look like the best in New England (which we have been for years) but our image certainly didn’t look that way online.
“THANK YOU! I’m not saying you’re totally responsible, but what you’ve done has definitely helped me double my sales over last year and it’s only July!”

“As you know, I was very happy with my old FLASH website. Then I met you Brett, a gift of God, to make me see how much better I could be. You designed a great new website, and eliminated the original “flash” website, just as youthis and Richard Rex suggested to me. I want to thank you both because every time I see and read the new website that you created, I realize you are the greatest. You know what are you doing REALLY WELL. Thank you very much for all your help. You have here more than a friend. Salud!!!” Joan Roca; AQUART

“Of the last three appointments that I have gone to, they all for various reasons had been to our new website (referrals, Yellow Pages, etc.) and they have all commented on how great the website is. This has not happened in the past. Thank you, John and Jordan for the inspiration to move in this direction and thank you, Brett and company for making such an industry-leading website.

“Sue and Frank, I just entered my request for an opening date using the website a little while ago. But, I had to email you to tell you that I LOVE the website! I just went in and looked at all of the testimonial videos and the custom pool photo gallery. The pictures were amazing, and our pool and backyard would fit right in!”
