Keeping your website responsive by having it automatically adjust to fit any device, keeping it simple, and keeping it updated started out our list of ways to improve your website in Part 1 of this blog. Let’s look at some other easy tactics to improve your school website. Remember, your website may be the first impression of your school to potential families!
- Blogging – This is not only a great way for you to share relevant and up to date information with parents, students, faculty and potential families – it can also increase traffic to your site by making it more significant to search engines. This is also an excellent way to get students involved and engaged with the website by allowing them to be guest bloggers discussing topics they find important.
- Graphics – A large majority of the population describes themselves as visual learners, which means they may pay more attention to the images on your site than to the words you have labored so hard over! You want your images to look professional and display the rich learning environment and positive events and activities taking place at your school. Remember a picture is worth a thousand words – put time, thought and effort into the graphics displayed on your website.
- Social Media – Don’t be afraid of it! In addition to your website, be sure that your school has a positive presence on social media. Trust me, your students are already on social media and this will give them another opportunity to interact with the school online. Plus, students and parents can promote information about activities or links to your website through social media.
