Each website you or your agency designs should improve navigation, search-friendliness, conversion path, etc. Beyond that, the higher education website, in particular, must meet certain additional requirements, given its audience and function. Oneupweb offers some suggestions for meeting the needs of both your institution and the students, parents, and other stakeholders who are interested in it.
Branding is essential. Know who you are, and use your logo, design assets (such as photography), and content messaging to convey that identity on every page. In addition, design your higher education website to showcase your unique value propositions.
User experience is crucial, too. Conduct regular audits to identify site problems, and optimize your pages knowing that the majority of readers will not read every bit of text. Make completing an application (a conversion) as simple and painless as possible. Follow these steps, and marketing your school will become a smoother and more effective process.
