My Big “Why”

Maika Endo

I struggled with websites when I started my spa business 11 years ago. I spent so much money and energy communicating with web designers, the process was always stressful.

One day during my holiday, I tried to update my Wordpress site and it crashed! Given the timeframe, I had no other choice than to figure out how to put a new one up by myself. With some research, I launched a new-and improved one within a week.

I found this experience so empowering, I became obsessed with it and experimented with all the website builders on the market.

Today, I do believe that when you are a small business owner, it makes more sense to do it yourself (including the content writing), so that everything aligns with your vision, and embodies your personality in an authentic way. Having this kind of control over your business, being able to edit, and make changes to your website anytime you want without depending on someone else, gives peace of mind, and that is priceless! I designed this website, and also designed websites for other clients. Very quickly, I realized that I enjoyed more teaching my clients how to manage their website and creating tutorials for them more than anything else. This is why I’m here today!

*SEO Hacks-aka “search engine optimization”:

You can google “spas+Beijing” and my spa business Kocoon Spa will rank in the first 5 results, against more than 35,000,000 results. Try “Facial+Beijing” and we are the first suggestion among 62 000 000 results! Finally, for “waxing+Beijing” we are first among 700 000 results.

I didn’t pay for it, and it’s not rocket science, I applied some simple strategies which I will share with you. Once you know the basics, it’s easy!

“I had a great learning and sharing time at Maika’s SEO class. Maika is truly an excellent teacher! What I appreciated the most about Maika’s SEO training was not only that she delivered the class content with very clear outlines, but also she interpreted the complicated IT language into the one that her students could comprehend right away.

+ Do I have to be a therapist to join?

Absolutely not! If you’ve been enjoying what I have been sharing so far, then I have no doubt that you’ll enjoy my teaching style and we probably share the same entrepreneurial mindset! I will show you all the features of Squarespace platform and more, which means that you’ll be able to build a website that suits the outcome you’re pursuing.

+ Do I need to prepare anything?

If you have the chance to prepare your material beforehand, I have a PDF guide on what to prepare and how to organize it which I will email you after you signed up. Otherwise, if you don't have time, I will give you dummy text and photos to build your website on day one of the workshop. You can prepare the material during the week before the second session. Of course, I will provide you with a checklist of what to prepare.

+ Which website builder will you use?

I chose Squarespace because it’s the best platform. I love it because: the result is clean and professional, you don’t need to download or update anything. Everything is in one place so there is less hassle. Plus, they have a smartphone app. to manage your website, and their customer service is amazing. Please note that I am not an affiliate and do not get any commission from recommending it!

+ Why is this course different?

This workshop blends theory and implementation so that you not only have the technical mastery of your website, you will also gain clarity on what is important in terms content and form, and what features are instrumental in helping you grow your business. I won’t use any jargon without explaining them to you! This course is designed for small business owners and solopreneurs.

+ What other fees should I budget?

You will pay Squarespace for the website hosting. Details hereSome may be fine with just the “personal” package, and others will prefer the “business” package. I will give recommendations on which package to choose according to your situation. All workshop attendees will enjoy 20% discount on the annual subscription through me.

+ What if I already registered my address?

Not a problem! We can apply for a transfer of your domain. I can help you with that.

+ Which language will you use?

We won't need to do any coding! I did add some codes into my site as I use to do some design work for clients and I needed it to be a display. For example, the FAQ section is a accordeon that opens up when you click on the question. Squarespace template did not have that feature. If there's anything you want to customize further, we can look into it together.

+ Will you cover newsletters?

There will be another workshop about how to create your newsletter, and another one about how to create “email funnels”, and other automations. You can sign up to my newsletter (below) if you don’t want to miss them as it will be limited in seats.
