Why Mobile Matters

Ways to Lower School Operating Costs

A responsive website that perfectly displays on mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets is essential for any school that wants to make an impact online.

Responsive website design ensures web pages can render and display accurately on a wide variety of devices, including the aforementioned smartphones and tablets, plus laptops, PCs and other internet-enabled devices.

Put simply, the majority of parents will research about your school using a mobile device, and most likely it’ll be their smartphone.

So why exactly is responsive web design so important for school websites?

Your school’s website is the first thing they see about your school, but it could be the last if the site is unresponsive and unable to effectively showcase the reasons why your school should be their first choice for their children.

First impressions always count, but rarely more so than when it comes to parents choosing a school for their children.

By ensuing your school website is mobile responsive, you’re guaranteeing that all parents will be able to research about your school on your terms.

All iClass school websites are fully responsive on mobile devices.

Is Your School’s Website Responsive?

Responsive design is essential for any website that wants to succeed in this day and age, including school and education websites.

Responsive design offers a number of practical benefits in regards to generating website views and lowering website maintenance costs, and should be used by all schools regardless of their size or education level.

1. Mobile Users

The biggest benefit of responsive websites is the increase in mobile traffic you’ll receive.

Most people use a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet to search and shop on the Internet, and responsive design ensures they’ll be able to view your school’s website as intended without any errors or issues.

2. Lower Costs

As responsive websites provide an optimal layout for both mobile devices and computers, you’ll save money on maintenance costs.

Traditionally, website owners paid separate maintenance fees for the desktop and mobile versions of their site, but with responsive design you pay a single fee and save money.

3. Faster Loading

Responsive school websites also load faster than traditional sites, so you won’t have to worry about parents leaving before a webpage loads.

Longer loading times also mean more time spent navigating webpages and less time spent reading the information they contain, which can have a negative effect on the user’s perspective of your website.

 

The above are just a few of the great benefits responsive design you can enjoy with the iClassCMS platform.
