For Consumer Behavior & Marketing Trends
Consider data from previous surveys (within three years).
Web design has to be a part of a cohesive user experience.
Consistent with visual identity standards, voice, and tone - across all points of contact.
Highlight points of distinction.
Deliver storytelling through media mix and bold photography.
Create a connection around emotion & warmth (i.e. emotional appeals).
75% of respondents in the attitudinal research were female, median age 45.
Emotional appeals are extremely effective with this group.
Leverage the Site
Search Engine Optimization
Earned, Owned, Paid
all working together
Using Forms Manager for RSVPs and promoting through Facebook ads, attendance jumped by 30% in the last year for 4 out of 6 public events held on campus.
That's more than 400 new visitors to our campus in one year.
More likely to be shared = earned media
Easier to consume = longer engagement
Excellent for SEO (include tags, keywords, and sitemaps as often as possible).
Videos are the most effective way to create an emotional response.
Is your website
leveraged and marketed?
Every school should have a cohesive social media strategy – one that uses each platform for its unique qualities and consistently drives traffic back to the website.
Have a Social Plan for before and after major events.
Put great content on other sites that link back to your site.
Take time to understand the basics around SEO.
Search is evolving constantly and every algorithm update makes it harder to be found.
Keep content diverse – It's appealing, engaging, and great for search.
Take the "No Text" test. Is your site a true reflection of your school?
Create a Social Hub to collate and collect all your content.
Today's families are goal-driven and tech savvy, and have no patience for confusing navigation and slow loading fixed-width sites.
Your school’s website is the megaphone that amplifies your value proposition.
Your site should provide visitors with a seamless experience across devices and ensure that your brand integrity remains intact while delivering consistent messaging to any device.
