Why Does this Website Exist?

http://www.springest.co.uk
Springest helps connect people to training & education that can better their lives
Who Cares?

http://www.springest.co.uk
Anyone running a training course/program
Anyone seeking to learn in a professional training environment
What Motivates, Inspires & Interests
This Audience?

http://www.springest.co.uk
The Pain! Oh, the Pain!

For training organizers it’s empty seats
Marketing opportunities
And market analysis (what are people saying about their events and how do they fare vs. the competition)
For those seeking to learn, it’s finding the right path
And exploring potential options with feedback, ratings and ROI analysis they can trust

“0” replies/comments on
any of the Q+A? So sad!
Who’s going to answer? Why?
Do other questions have good

showing me… It’s powerful.
Hey! Where’d the rest
of the site go?
What about quality?
Reviews? Value?
Ability to get a

Can editors somehow review these? Can we infer something from
comments made around the web? Can we get statistics from the...
Found this on the Netherlands site and
loved it… Couldn’t find it on the UK site.
Content for Springest

Technically, this is “good content.”
In reality… It likely has high

User Experience

for BathandUnwind
Great brand
messaging… But
does that convert?
Help bounce rate?
Bring users back?
Do these categories
line up with your
products, or with how
your visitors actually

Seems like brands
would be an essential
way of shopping… But
it took me a while to
find how to shop by

getting involved with content. Is that intentional? Has it ...
At default resolution,
there’s no products

Reviews = awesome. Strikethough
prices = awesome. No way to shop by
“on sale” or seasonal = less awesome.
Wow. This is really
top notch!
