Is your site lacking in fun and therefore lacking in site visits? Read these 10 easy tips to increase your site’s coolness factor!
#1 Fun menu names. Update your site’s menu names so they are fresh and fun. Change your Home page to “Home Plate” or your Locations page to “Where it’s at!” Get creative and have fun with it! In your site admin, go to My Site Design>Labels.
#2 Include a team picture on your Home Page. Parents and players LOVE to see a team photo on the site. Some of the best looking and most visited eteamz sites include a team photo on their home page. In your site admin, go to Website Pages>Home Page.
#3 Take it easy. Rather than including everything under the sun on your home page, try to just fit the most valuable information above the fold of the home page (the part visitors can see without scrolling down), then use the News pages to add content to your site. In your site admin, go to Website Pages>My Site News (or Add a New Page).
#4 This just in! Update your site with new articles regularly – relevant, local and personal stories will keep site visitors informed and engaged AND increase your site’s SEO. In your site admin, go to Website Pages>My Site News (or Add a New Page).
#5 Link to relevant sites from your home and News pages (this also helps with SEO). If you have a basketball site, an example of some relevant sites would be iHoops.com and espn.com. Link to your school’s website, your town’s website, and Facebook pages. In your site admin, go to Website Pages>Links (or Add a New Page).
#6 Play around with color. Keeping with your team’s color theme is great – but how about dressing up your sites a little during the holidays? Or swap the background colors with the font colors? Keep it fresh and people won’t get bored with the same old thing. In your site admin, go to My Site Design>Customize.
#7 Feature different players each month – give them their own News page and include pictures, stats, and fun facts. In your site admin, go to Website Pages>My Site News (or Add a New Page).
#8 Add fun NEW pages (PLUS sites only). Include fun pages such as Concession Stand menus. In your site admin, go to Website Pages> Add a New Page.
#9 Pictures are worth a thousand words And storage is cheap, so add lots of photos regularly. Announce new pictures by posting slideshows on Facebook. In your site admin, go to Files & Photos>Albums.
#10 Get a custom domain – eteamz offers them for $14.95 a year (just $1.25 a month)! In your site admin, go to My Account/PLUS>Account to purchase a domain or contact eteamz support to transfer a domain to eteamz.
