Cost Effective

A strategically developed website and online presence solution provides tremendous benefits and costing outlines.

Accessible around the clock

Your school is only open for certain hours in the week. However your website is accessible 24/7, 365 days a year. Since your school website is operational around the clock, your target audience can access it from anywhere at any time to suit them.

Credibility

By having a professional school website you are giving your school credibility with the opportunity to tell parents, students and prospects why they should trust you. You can include content such as testimonials and videos of happy students and teachers to back this up. Most people will visit your website as part of the consideration process.

Marketing

Having a first rate website and an online presence strategy allows you to market your school online. There are lots of marketing strategies you can use to advertise and market your school. Any marketing you do via social media, email, direct mail, outdoor media etc. can then be driven back to your website so they can find out more.

Competition

An effective, well maintained website helps you keep up with the competition! Who do you think a prospect would be more likely to consider? A school with a bad website, or the one that is on brand, and showcases their school in the best light?

Resource of information

Your school website can host a range of information for all news pertaining to your school for current and prospective students, teachers, and parents. As mentioned above, this could be an online portal, a CRM, online admissions, as well as everyday school communications such as important campus announcements, information and more!
