Love at First Site: How She Got Her First Lead Within an Hour of Launching Her New Website

Meet Chanel Lauren! She’s a social media marketing strategist helping entrepreneurs find freedom while building their brands and businesses. She is also the babe behind Born To Beach™, a mindset and a way of living a life of inspired intention. 

Chanel’s story proves how finding a website that truly fits her personality has made all the difference for showcasing her capabilities. She tells us, “It was love at first site (pun so intended) when I found my Tonic template and let’s just say, I dove right in. Before Tonic, I was just a girl with her feet in the sand, but now I’m living La Vida Luxury with a flawless new site that attracts my ideal client, while showcasing everything I am truly born to do!”

We love that her site was up and running like a Baywatch beauty with all the fun and sunshine of a day at the beach, and all the substance and inspiration of a business coach you want to work with. It’s like our Margarita template was made for Chanel. She models her TONIC template so well (no really, she’s a model, too). We can’t imagine her in a different site; it’s that perfectly suited 😉for who she is and what she’s about. Check it out her customization: 

Our favorite things about her site? It’s so hard to choose. Here are a few:

  • Her customization of site colors – sunny yellows and serene blue-greens – and the use of beautiful images and engaging text create a VIBE, and we’re loving it. Relaxation and natural beauty meet fun-loving, carefree living, and we’re here for it. Who wouldn’t want to join her on the beach? 
  • We love her Book Me page, where gorgeous photos and clever copy lead you through her (very clickable) offerings, providing you with clear options and inspiring testimonials. 
  • She’s clearly talented, and her Born to Beach™ page highlights her passions and projects. There’s space for her to highlight blog posts and talk about her up-and-coming podcast. We love how she’s made jumping into her site an experience; it’s like visiting an exotic, yet accessible location. 
  • Be sure to click to her Editorial page, where she showcases stunning images from her modeling career she also has. It’s such a good use of site space too, because she’s able to incorporate that talent into her whole brand in a way that feels intentional.

But what makes her story even more impressive? Here’s what she says about the results she’s getting with this killer site:

The best part is that I received my first lead within 1 hour of launching my site. Talk about making a splash! The Tonic Team support and tools are top notch! And while you’re at it, purchase your insta-links and favorites page too because trust me, you’ll be back! If you’re anything like me, you’re about to be ALL-IN, baby! I will never build a website from the ground up again!”

We love that she loves her site. We couldn’t be more thrilled that this beach babe found a website template that truly matches not only her brand and business, but, we think most importantly…WHO she is. We love that Chanel is passionate and fun AND smart and business-minded. She chose the perfect template; TONIC’s Margarita not only looks good online but is featured-rich and sales-driven. She’s a party – colorful and personality-packed but is also a low-key strategic design for any coach, photographer, creative brand, or small business – no matter where you are on your journey. 

Chanel makes us proud to do what we do (but also like, really makes us want to go on a beach trip, ideally with her as our tanning buddy). But for now, we will just have to keep designing pretty websites because clients like Chanel make that really fun, too. So if you want to launch a new site that matches you and your brand, click here to shop the collection.
