SoSimple Interactive Announces Website Plugins for School Enrollment and Fundraising
July 17th, 2020
SoSimple Interactive is pleased to announce the release of several plug-in tools now available for schools with existing websites.
These affordable plugins can be quickly and easily embedded into school websites, enhancing the sites with advanced capabilities for attracting and enrolling new students, and expanding development and fundraising initiatives. See more about these school plugins here.
INTERACTIVE CAMPUS MAPS
With the Interactive Campus Maps plugin, a school can provide one-on-one remote school tours right within its website. This is ideal when families cannot visit the school or are eager for a sneak peak prior to a future scheduled visit. Interactive Campus Maps can feature photo galleries, embedded videos, links, and more to provide an immersive campus tour experience right from the student’s home. From walking the halls of the academic buildings, to watching a soccer match, to listening to student testimonials, Interactive Campus Maps give visitors an in-depth online view of the school.
While new families are visiting a school’s website, it’s the perfect time to encourage them to schedule a physical tour of the school or a phone/video conference. The Scheduler tool provides added incentive by making it extremely quick, easy and convenient for parents to set up an appointment. They simply choose a day and time from time slots the school pre-determines. No more back-and-forth communication trying to find a mutually acceptable time. The Scheduler tool then updates the staff’s calendar with the appointment and automatically sends out a confirmation email to the parents.
For schools that want to extend the reach and enhance the effectiveness of their printed publications and sales presentation, SoSimple’s Flip Book tool is the answer. This plugin converts static printed materials into engaging Flip Books with interactive features. Schools can easily add clickable hotspots to display vibrant photo galleries, embedded videos, comprehensive contents and links, and a fun interactive format allowing visitors to flip through enriched pages of school brochures, sport and club program booklets, capital campaign portfolios, and more.
Once a school receives leads from its website’s inquiry form or online donations, it’s crucial to nurture these opportunities. Community Manager allows schools to do just that. This simple-to-use yet powerful database lets schools create their own data fields, store information, run queries, track giving history, send out email communications and bulk text messaging, create automated marketing campaigns, and view communications history and user analytics. This invaluable tool is ideal for school admissions, marketing, alumni relations and development teams.
Schools with existing websites can easily add these powerful plugins to support their student enrollment and development/fundraising initiatives. To learn more and see these tools in action, click below to schedule a demo.
