    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.
