Before you get started, here is what you will need

  1. Create your HotHealth Account

    • Please note: You will not be charged during your 30-day Free Trial unless you use features that have usage fees
    • Should you not want to continue with HotHealth after your free trial, simply unsubscribe before the 30 days are up
  2. Logo – Don’t have a logo? We suggest that you get one. If you don’t have a designer, you can try out 99designs or one of the many online image generation services (e.g. Wordswag, DesignMantic, Logotype Maker)
  3. Website & App Background Image – Looking for a nice background? A great free source is FreePik, if you want more of a selection – see iStockphoto or Shutterstock (not free). Alternatively, you can skip the image and go for a simple, fresh, white background – this look is currently quite popular.
  4. Your Business’s Colour Palette – If you do not have a corporate identity/colour palette yet, no worries! Head over to Pinterest, create a board, get inspired, have fun and pick a simple colour scheme/look that suits your business.
  5. Your Business’s Details – Keep the following information aside: business trading hours, good quality imagery, staff profiles, location/s, contact details, blurb about your business, list of services you offer, product and service pricing / packages and availability.
