On a hot day, nothing refreshes like a swim. Maybe it's time to refresh your website too. Is your website a little outdated and you don't know where to start?
If you have 15-30 minutes, you can easily make a few changes that will provide updates and give your public website a quick refresh.
Here are 4 ways that your can quickly update your website:
- Change the look of your club website. Sometimes a simple change can make all the difference in the world. Changing the template takes just a couple clicks. Take a look at some of the new templates. The process is the same as when you originally set your public website template.
- Share something interesting. Add news or an announcement to the news column. Is there an upcoming club event or picnic? Who's birthday is coming up? Did your group just do something noteworthy? Add a short news blurb and a recent photo (smart device photos work just fine!) to show that your club is active. This type of quick update also helps with SEO (Search Engine Optimization). The News module on the Portalbuzz website was created to make it easy to manage news.
- Add events or meetings to the member portal. When meetings or events are added to the member portal in association with a public website control, events and meeting will also show on the club website. If you are already using the member portal to schedule meetings and events, this is an easy way to also keep your club website updated.
- Add a photo to your club website homepage. A picture is worth a thousand words. What has your club done this summer? Add photos - Add photos of your group working together, serving together or just plain having fun. People love to see photos, don't they?
Once you refresh the club website, keep it up-to-date easily. Add an entry to your calendar to spend 15 minutes making some updates to your website once a month. At a minimum, those 15 minutes will keep your website looking fresh! #PBTip1
