TLDR: You NEED to set up a custom 404 and Thank You page on your website. When you do, make sure you include links to other pages on your site to keep your client engaged with your site (this helps your SEO too). Think about it this way… In under an hour, you can create 2 more opportunities to gain your client’s engagement and business. Scroll to the Bottom for a free 404 Page for SHOWIT.
Simply put, a “404 Page” is that page that pops up when the page you were trying to reach on a website couldn’t be found. It can look similar to the one below.
And a “Thank You, Page” is just that, a page that you are taken to after completing an action on a website.
Want to hear how to make it even easier? Simply create your 404 page using the tips above, then duplicate that 404 page. Next, on the copied 404 Page, simply update all the text content with your “Thank You” page text. There you have it, 2 pages created in under an hour.
These Instructions can be used with any website platform (Squarespace, Wix, Showit, etc) but my free template is only compatible with SHOWIT
I’m a Cali girl with a touch of Southern roots, currently falling in love with Oregon. I’ve been known to wildly chase some dreams, especially the “crazy ones” … Ask me about that time I made my family travel the US in an RV for almost 3 years!
After a decade of running a successful photography business, even while traveling full-time, I realized, almost by accident, that my real love is helping other small biz owners navigate through the usual hang-ups that come with running a business. From custom branding + web design to business organization + marketing, I am with you every step of the way. Helping others reach their dreams is my love language (well, that and chips), so what dreams are you holding out on? ‘Cause I’m ready to show you how you can make them a reality!
