Are you wondering if your party rental website is ready for 2023? Are you worried that your site might struggle to keep up with all the new? If so, it’s time for a much-needed website makeover in 2023! Listen up party rental business owners: don’t get left behind while your competitors zoom ahead. Make it your goal this year to give your website an update that will take your operation – and revenue – to the next level! And I’m not just talking about design.
Here are three reasons you should get a website makeover before the season kicks in.
1. Your Website Needs To Be Followup Focused
Did you know that 80% of sales are made after the fifth contact? It’s true! Most businesses give up after just one or two attempts to reach a potential customer. But if you do it right, you can get double or even triple the amount of business! It can be tough to stay motivated when reaching out to customers feels like such a grind. The good news is, your website can automate most of your follow ups and set them up in a way that doesn’t annoy your customers!
The problem with most website and event rental software providers is that they’re not “Followup Focused”, meaning they don’t make it clear to the business owner how may leads came in and how close you got to turning them into paying customers. Most party rental software providers are all about the auto booking. Fact is, less than 1% of your website visitors book if you don’t follow up, so it makes sense to work with a website provider that makes that process easy – and follows up with potential customer automatically.
With a website makeover from Event Hawk, you can almost set it and forget it – your site will automatically follow up via email, text, and even follow up again if your customer forgets to reply. Since we’ve worked with tons of party rental companies, we know exactly what to say and when to say it so you get more customers to say YES!
Do you know where to find your leads or potential customers? Do you know how to followup with your leads and create automations? Can you easily and clearly track customer replies?
A good booking software automatically follows up with potential customers for you, so you can focus on other tasks. Get a demo of Event Hawk websites now!
2. Your Website Needs To Accept Google Pay & Apple Pay
More and more people are using their phones to pay for online shopping every day. In fact, a recent study showed that 78% of people would rather use their phone to pay than carry around a wallet. That’s why it’s important for your party rental business to have a website that allows customers to pay with Apple Pay and Google Pay. These payment methods are fast, secure, and easy to use – so you can focus on what you do best: running your business. With so many people using their phones to pay for things, it’s important that your business is able to offer this service as well. It’s a quick and easy way for customers to checkout, and it helps keep them coming back time after time.
Another great benefit of using a website that supports these payment options is that your business is associated with world’s largest tech giants: Apple & Google! This is an instant “flex” and acts as a brand boost which gives customers increased confidence when deciding between doing business with you and your competitors.
If 100 customers were shown 2 websites, one that only allowed customers to pay by entering their credit card number and and the other gave customers an option to pay with credit card or with Apple Pay & Google Pay, which site do you think would get more bookings?

3. You Need To Own Your Website
Did you know that when you cancel your website with most providers, everything goes away – including your design, SEO, and all of your hard work put into building it up. Yep, all of it. All of that time and effort you put into making your site rank and look great will be for nothing. Your website is one of the most important pieces of your business and you want to make sure that if you decide to switch providers one day, you don’t lose years of work (it happens a lot). With Event Hawk you get a WordPress website that you can take with you to any other provider (even if you cancel). WordPress is the worlds most popular website platform and is used by big names like Sony Music and Time Magazine.
You might be happy with your current provider but how much work do you really want to put into something that you’re renting, something you can never own? You also might feel stuck because you’ve already invested so much into your current website. Remember that you’re going to invest more and more every year so the sooner you cut your losses and get something that’s actually yours, the better for you and for the future of your business. If you’re thinking about switching ask us about how we can help you transfer your website.
Protect your website design, SEO, and all of your hard work by working with a company that allows you to keep the work you’ve put into your website over the years. Event Hawk Websites are the perfect solution for anyone who wants the freedom to switch providers without losing everything they’ve worked so hard for.

Your party rental website might be in need of an upgrade and it’s time to take control. If you want your customers to experience a better shopping experience, make sure that your website can handle Apple Pay, Google Pay, and other convenient payment options for users. Not only will this make your business more efficient, but it also adds a sense of professionalism when customers can easily check out. Associating your brand with Google and Apple is a brand boost too precious to pass up. It also may be time to make sure that you actually own the site instead of just renting it from someone else– your website is your legacy, and it’s one of the most important parts of your business. You should really own something that’s that valuable.
