Call for Proposals: Association of Education Advisers Website

The Association of Education Advisers (AoEA) is currently accepting proposals to redevelop its website.

As the organisation enters a new phase in its development there is a requirement to 1) reassess what the target audience needs from the website and 2) to modernise and simplify the website to focus on driving enquiries and consolidating the AoEA’s place in the market.

Introduction

AoEA’s current website was developed a number of years ago and is now feeling dated and doesn’t serve the current needs of the organisation. Recent evolution of the business model and greater understanding of the target audiences has identified that a redevelopment would be the best next step.

Certain website elements are either ineffective or complicated, and the website doesn’t consider how new products and services affect the customer journey. Primarily the new website needs to act as an effective marketing tool that will get across key messages while making it easy for AoEA to pick up leads and develop relationships.

The goals for the website are:

  • To upgrade but simplify the messages on the website while bringing all products, services and delivery processes under one site.
  • To generate more leads and sales from senior educational leaders and institutions in the UK and internationally through key interactions such as booking to attend free and paid training and events
  • To refresh the brand and help connect the company’s message resonate with its users
  • To establish the AoEA’s accreditation as the quality standard for education advisers globally
