Q&A: What can I do with my website to help keep and motivate my students? Question: What can I do with my website to help keep and motivate my students? Answer: My suggestion would be to have a dedicated section of your website, possibly password protected, for the education and recognition of your students. Some of the things you can build into it are: School Announcements - Post all your news, promotions, upcoming events and seminars. Student Birthdays - Wishing them a Happy Birthday earns you good will, especially with parents and younger kids. Student of the Month - Nothing boosts satisfaction like some public recognition Class Schedules & Calendars - Helps keep your students informed on when classes are, as well as when you're closed and when special events are. School History / Lineage New Student Announcements & Resources - A nice way to say hello and welcome new students to the school, also helps give them all the "newbie" info. Form Meanings and walk throughs School Rules & Policies Tournament Information and Results Monthly Training Tips Seminar Information Black Belt Club - Special information for your BBC or other "specialty" groups. Demonstration Team - Have a demo team? Great way to promote it and recognize the members who are representing your school You can also setup a forum, public or private, to encourage community within your school.
