Don’t miss out on potential students.

Your website is your number one marketing and enrollment tool. If your website is slow, out-of-date, and hard to navigate, the chances are your college or university is losing out on potential students.

Even though old-school marketing tactics are less relevant for the so-called “traditional student” (18 to 24-year-olds) and Millennials, that does NOT mean they’re immune to advertising! Your future students are online and they’re savvier than ever. They know a good website when they see one, and they form ideas about the quality and value of your college based on your online presence.

Most importantly, users make snap judgments about institutional credibility based on the look, feel, and user experience of your website. Don’t believe us — check out all of these studies about perceived organizational credibility and websites:
