With our experience of creating academic websites and marketing campaigns, we’re the digital agency who provide inspiring results.

Finding the right strategy in the digital era is difficult, but with our industry expertise we’ll highlight how we can make digital services deliver fantastic results for you.   Academic website design is a multi-layered process which requires research and discovery of what you have to offer students. Our research will consider the products or services you’re offering, the target audience, and potential visitor personas.   Furthermore, we’ll take a look at your marketing goals and objectives, metrics for project success, your existing website, what your desired website improvements are, and your content flow requirements.   Our services don’t end there. We can provide advanced functionality such as membership management, learning management system, eCommerce services, a forum, and advanced social media features. No matter what your requirement, we’ll work to ensure it’s integrated into your project to provide your students with the best user experience available.   In addition, you’ll launch with an industry leading content management system (CMS) behind you to provide your institution with a highly advanced, user-friendly platform which will ensure your staff can quickly and easily manage your site.   This will ensure your site will launch SEO ready to capture key search ranking positions. Climb Google’s search ranking results based on actionable data and easily editable content to secure your institution the audience it deserves.

Connect with your students

Mobile-friendly

Being mobile-friendly is essential for any modern education centre. Connect with your students with the latest devices and ensure your website continues to look the part on any device.

Mobile internet users will surpass desktop users in 2016 – it’s now more important than ever to have a website which is fully responsive across a range of devices. With the student audience keyed into this new era of internet usage, your institution needs to provide them with a memorable user experience.   We ensure your website adapts across a full range of devices, including the latest range of smartphones or tablets. Your mobile-friendly site will condense to provide visitors with a clear and accessible mobile version, effectively allowing visitors to search through your key content and allowing you to highlight key CTAs and USPs without interference.   A mobile-friendly site is also ideal for SEO purposes, as Google now actively favours websites which are adaptable to a range of modern devices. We’ll ensure you don’t miss out thanks to our cutting edge web design and development skills.

Runshaw College

Featured Case Study

runmob

Runshaw’s website was showing its age. It was not only difficult to navigate, but on mobile and tablet devices it was completely non-responsive. A mixture of poorly organised content, presented in a dated interface, led to many potential students facing a frustrating user experience, whilst visually the website didn’t represent their brand.

Runshaw is a unique educational environment. The college has a noticeable energy about it and we wanted to reflect this on the new website. A mobile first approach was a given as 75% of their traffic is through mobile and tablet devices. However, we also wanted to innovate through the simplification of content, the user journey, and the website navigation. This innovative approach is, essentially, the opposite of what their peers currently use for their academic websites.

Soap were really easy to work with throughout the duration of our website project. The end result is great, we now have a website in keeping with our status as the top college in the country!
