Websites

What single factor makes a website effective?

Education Advisers formed in 2004 and we quickly began designing our own websites, mostly aimed at parents. We must have produced 20+ websites and currently have 12 operational sites of our own, attracting more than 1,500,000 visitors per annum. We spend most of our working days listening to parents telling us what they want in a school for their children. So our philosophy is to prioritise parents’ needs and then answer the majority of commonly asked questions. Every single web page has a “call to action” telling parents how to get in touch and we generate 1500 bespoke enquiries per annum plus another 6000+ requests for prospectuses and eGuides. We constantly aim to improve our sites and in recent years we have made them mobile device friendly and embraced social media.

We always strive to be more effective. There is one single thing that we prioritise. You have to persuade parents to come out from behind their computer screens or tablets or smart phones and talk to you!

Most schools envy for the traffic statistics we get!  Indeed we have one school client which tells us we produce 75% of their website visitors.

Yet, we are not website developers? We do not sell website development, but we are pleased to work with schools and colleges on a bespoke basis to generate the same results as we get on our own business, where we know we can highlight their USPs and strengths and in two words, make them “more effective”

So, how do we work?

Firstly Education Advisers does an analysis of you current website and compares it with your business objectives.

Secondly we will specify the site aims and come up with sample design concepts

Thirdly we take these to our web technical partner, Larrytech and work with them to get the concepts implemented

Fourthly we concentrate on enhancing relevant traffic generation.

We chose Larrytech as our web partner 4 years ago after putting our www.best-schools.co.uk site out to tender to the biggest school website players in the UK. Larrytech already had a portfolio of private school websites - so they understood our market. They have a self developed Content Management System (which works!) They understand our design and psychology requirements and above all they are reasonably priced for a reliable service.

We make a formidable partnership and invite you to try us out. Here are some examples of recent work.
