How will Our PTA benefit from this product?
Increased readership and awareness. Once a quarter you could simply email or text the PTA website link to the parents. More people will know about your activities and in turn more money will be raised. Parents will naturally forward your PTA website link to share with others.
Sponsorship. By getting a local company to sponsor the monthly hosting cost, you are getting a good communication tool year on year for free. This raises awareness for you, and exposure to a wider audience for your sponsor.
What is the monthly domain & hosting fee for?
The monthly charge of £6.66 is for the initial and on-going domain registration and CMS hosting of the website. This is a necessary charge that all web companies make.
Have you any ideas how we can encourage people to visit our website?
These ideas are based on the feedback of other schools who use this product.
- All newsletters should include a line that draws people to your new PTA website.
- If applicable, Parent Mail can be used to inform the parents of your new PTA web site.
- Once a term, your PTA can email the website link to all the parents and guardians as a reminder. Your school should have a list of these email addresses.
How much money should our PTA charge for a sponsorship banner?
We recommend £10.00 – £15.00 per month as a reasonable charge. You only pay us £6.66 per month + VAT. The final fee you decide on may vary depending on the size of the school and the amount of people visiting your website. The school may offer to sponsor it, or a self-employed parent.
If I have trouble editing the site will you help?
Yes, we can talk you through any issues over the phone if you have access to the website as a reference. We will supply you with simple step-by-step instructions. Click here to download your user guide.
What’s the catch?
There isn’t one! Having a website will automatically introduce you to a wider audience, generating more funds as you raise awareness of your upcoming events. If you include a link to your PTA site on your schools main website (and vice versa) even more people will become aware of your fundraising activities.
All we need is a suitable photo and a school logo to get things moving.
