- General Best Practices
Welcome to our another episode of Website Fixer Upper! In this series, we showcase how you can take the good bones of any website, and transform pages into incredible digital experiences.
Each week, we’ll be rolling up our sleeves and diving into one of our client's websites on Composer to share step-by-step guides for improving their website page.
This week’s episode we tackle Grace Christian Academy’s website — a site that didn’t need much fixing up! I worked with Grace Christian Academy at FinalsiteU to build some new landing pages for their admissions efforts, so when they sent over their near-perfect landing page for this series, I asked myself — well, what can I “fix up?”
The process. Not the design or content, but the process.
GCA had an awesome inquiry page for their Kindergarten, but no next steps! In this week’s episode of Website Fixer Upper, I share the importance of using a “thank you” page and best practices for creating one and how to automatically redirect a form to a “thank you” page using Finalsite Forms Manager. Putting a “thank you” page together can be done in just about ten minutes, but has a lasting impact on your inbound marketing efforts!
Watch this week's episode below!
For a recap of these best practices (and some additional tips not shared in this video!) check out our blog on Thank You Pages here.
