What About My Budget?
We understand that showrooms in different markets have different needs. That's why we offer a variety of website packages.
Our most basic website package is totally FREE! With it you get a fully functioning website that includes a Wish List, "about us" page and products from up to 20 of our more than 170 vendors. You'll also be able to list your location, contact info, hours and directions to your store. Your site is 100% free for as long as you want it due to the skyscraper Web ads located on the sides. But you can always upgrade to have these ads removed or choose from other options for a low monthly fee.
This low-cost website features an unlimited selection of vendors, and your own URL address. This package includes many of the same benefits our competitors offer and more, such as Free Google Analytic reports and search engine optimization. You can also turn it into an e-commerce site for just a little bit more per month.
Our top-of-the-line package gives you a fully customizable e-commerce site. With it, you receive a number of back-end controls, which allow you to decide what you display and how it's displayed. You also get an assortment of exclusive tools such as our PDF Wizard, Showroom Price Tag software and the ability to create "sub websites" for your best customers (like interior designers and contractors).

What LightsAmerica customers are saying about us
"I got my fist job, at the age of 16, as a stock boy in the lighting showroom of an electrical supply store. I have been in the lighting industry for 31 years. About 3 years ago, I received an email from LightsAmerica that I responded to, and it turned out to be one of the best moves I could have made for my company. I can easily say that LightsAmerica has been the most exciting lighting showroom enhancement program I have come across in my long career. LightsAmerica is now the backbone of our showroom. We use it for visual inventories, tagging fixtures, pricing, selections and sales. Our clients are impressed and liberated by being able to visit our virtual showroom 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They are able to share their selections with other family members, their electrician and builder in real time with family members, their electrician and builder. Their "wish list" keeps our records nicely organized. In fact, we use it as an exhibit for them to sign along with their estimate. It documents their choices and avoids costly numerical mistakes. We no longer have to drag out dozens catalogs and try to remember every single picture in each catalog to make recommendations. Instead, we now have selection centers with a flat screen monitor, keyboard and mouse. "We have a staff of 22 - and from our drivers to our office staff - they all use it and love it! When we're hiring new employees and see the lost look on their faces, we pull up our virtual showroom and ask them to assist a make-believe client by asking a few simple questions with the search criteria. They are amazed how knowledgeable they will appear to our customers on their first workday when in reality, they have no experience at all. Our builder clients love that our home buyers rave about their shopping experience as efficient and "state of the art. We are able to work in builder's referral fees into our pricing and be comfortable that those prices won't be undercut by an Internet competitor. The dedicated staff of LightsAmerica has been receptive to ideas or suggestions we have had in fine tuning this amazing tool. I have called LightsAmerica just to thank them countless times, and I am delighted to have this opportunity to share my excitement and appreciation for what they have done for my company! I will be happy to speak to any showroom owner that is committed to making his showroom a great experience for his customers and running a smart business. Please feel free to call me if you have any additional questions."
Founder and President of Lighting by Design
"Many years ago, when we first began looking at building a website for ourselves, the process completely overwhelmed us. We wanted an online catalog to offer to our customers, but we didn't know how to implement it or keep the data current. Thankfully, we found Lights America who allow us to control what we have on our online catalog, what prices we want them set at and even what order they are displayed to the customer.
The pricing is current, discontinued items are kept up to date and are even searchable. Our lighting showrooms now use I-pads every day with our customers, making the most of the online catalog. No more lugging around a ton of heavy catalogs, leaving the customer to price a chandelier for them with a paper price sheet. The search functions are used daily by the salespeople when we have a customer that have specific wants or needs. You can search just by color, size or amount your customer wants to spend.
It's easy to use their label writing program to create consistent looking tags throughout the showroom that are easy to read. The tags even have a QR barcode that you can scan with your I-pad or mobile device and add the item to a wish list. This website, combined with an I-pad make for the fastest, easiest tools to use on our showroom floor."
