Budgets are tight for everyone these days, especially in the education sector. The Government haven't raised funding in line with growing classrooms, which is impacting everything, from hiring experienced teachers to funding basic requirements - some schools have even put a cap on photocopying.
If this resonates with you, then a website from Venture will certainly help your budget. We have implemented a website scrappage scheme that replaces your current website, with a new one - for free. A new DforE compliant website will cost in the region of £7,000 - £10,000, which is a large proportion of any schools budget. There are companies out there which will do it for less - but don't sacrifice quality where it matters, ensuring the website build is DforE compliant.
We are only running this scheme until the 1st February 2018, but we will honour any enquiries made before that date with a free redesign when taking out a manage plan with our company. Contact our team for more information on 0800 970 9165 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will assist you where possible!
As a business owner, I know all too well how challenging it can be, however it can be so rewarding. Many people try to take short cuts to get the job done quickly and to keep up with deadlines. This is a mistake, especially when it comes to your online presence. This is a vital marketing tool and normally the first place a potential customer will look when hunting for a service you offer.
With Venture we provide a bespoke and positive first impression that is catered to your company’s needs and individual brand. Some key things to remember regarding your website are;
What do you want your first impression to be?
We know how important this is. We will design your website to your individual requirement’s - no website is the same, it’s as unique as your business is.
People now window shop online.
Shopping habits have changed over the years and now more than ever it’s imperative to be available online. People want information fast and at their fingertips; as outlined in The Telegraph on 16th September 2017 where they announce, ‘Online shopping is king - high street stores must adapt or die.’
No online presence = loss of business!
Need we say more? Never knowing if someone was looking for your business, couldn’t find and moved on is a terrible thought – don’t put yourself in that position!
Do I have time to keep it up to date?
Venture is different. If you need a website built but don’t have the time or the inclination to keep it updated, Venture offer a range of managed plans to suit your budget and needs. This includes unlimited vital updates to your site as required and even yearly redesigns to keep it fresh and modern. One size does not fit all and we know that we’ll cater to your needs!
Can I be found through search engines?
Your website needs to be SEO ready, and it will be with Venture. We also offer competitive rates to rank you highly for key terms, locally, nationally or internationally.
Is it cost effective?
As mentioned before, we will do our best to work within your budget, so there is no point in us quoting a pricing structure. We will find a balance so we’re both happy!
We want a great working relationship with our clients because we care - and also because word of mouth is also a pretty good marketing tool! Find out more by contacting our team on 0800 970 9165, or me directly at email@example.com!
If you're part of a teaching organisation then you will benefit from lots of great money saving features from Venture, including a compliant, bespoke website, a free design and free future redesigns too!
Compliant Website Build
We'll start with the most important area of a website build for education websites - compliancy. Your website is more than just a online brochure for parents and students to use. All of our websites are built following guidance outlined by the Department for Education, in particular, the Equality Act 2010.
The Equality Act was written to ensure everyone is treated fairly, without being restricted in areas surrounding disabilities. Let's take people who are visually impaired. Websites should be built to cater for people who have visual impairments - whether the user is blind, partially blind or colour blind.
If a website is built properly, then a visually impaired user will be able to use the website with the assistance of a speech browser. This will assist with pictorial descriptions and other content within your website for a complete and fluid user experience. In an instance where a user is colour blind, the websites we build will ensure certain colours don't conflict, making it difficult for the user to decipher text and other web content.
By having a website built by Venture, you will receive a compliant, well built digital platform.
