One of our clients received a message from Google Webmaster Tools telling her

Googlebot can't access your site

She was not sure whether this was a sales message or something important, so she dropped us a line.

The message said:

Really excited to show off our new website design for Inner Body Pilates who run classes in Leigh on Sea and London.

Now, with her WordPress-based CMS, it is easy to see how to use the website and it ranks well with the search engines so it is easier to find. This means that Angela gets more customers!

Angela chose a booking system that lets her clients reserve and pay for their classes easily and doesn't cost the earth in payment charges.
