School Website Design Perth. We are different from other website design companies in Perth. Originally coming from the UK in 1995 we have worked in the online space for a VERY long time! We are primarily designers but completely understand how to design a website to be attractive to the the search engines.
There is a huge difference between a web developer and designers who understand how to develop websites. Knowing how to correctly structure a website for SEO with the search engines and also being able to design beautiful looking websites that follow and ‘sing’ your brand ethos is essential to ensure your online presence is the best it can be.
There are plenty of ‘free’ website building software out there, but, like everything that is free, there is usually a catch! The catch being that they are notoriously difficult, if not impossible to get that website seen and ranked by a search engine. Not to mention you are limited as to the functionality they offer.
The other major aspect to approach is why do you need a website? This is a question we always ask because most organisations just simply think they ‘need one’.
Obviously, this is your window to the community and an opportunity for you to engage with your community. It should be visual but informative and also work on mobile devices, THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT, some parents may not own a computer or tablet and would be viewing your website on a mobile device, if it does not work correctly on a mobile phone they get frustrated and click off.
An Events section on your website is a great way to keep your community informed of what events are coming and also a quick report after the event has happened. All the information about the event can be listed on the event page along with any forms that need signing and returning, this will cut down the traffic through the admin office and free up the admin staff.
The news section on the site keeps your community informed of any important news or outstanding achievement at the school. All of this can be posted to social media and used in your newsletter if you have one.
The important thing to note here is that your website should be a resource of information for any new parents thinking of enrolling at your school and also for your existing parents and students. Your website should work as hard as you do in the school and should portray your school ethos in spades.
