  • Same can be said for a website. You can have the greatest website in the world, but if nobody is visiting it is it making a difference? Of course you have to get people to visit, but knowing what they do when they visit is equally important.
  • What do we want our website to do? What is it’s major purpose? Most of the time the #1 goal is going to be recruit students and everything else falls a distant second so keep that audience in mind. Build for your main audience, but don’t forget your other audiences. You will find that you can do this while still staying relevant to everyone.
