Every local club can now have their own website!

Stoa has created a simple website builder to feature local club information on the web!

Beyond the basic Clubsite, clubs may add additional features for additional cost. These will be billed to cover the necessary administrative expenses.
Note: there are many other potential features available. Clubs can contact Stoa and ask for help with any website add-ons, and we will consider and price on a case-by-case basis.

 

Website Add-ons:

  1. Domain Mapping
    • If a club already owns a domain or wants their already created website swapped over, Stoa/Keenly (the web development team) can interact with the various services to make this happen.
  1. Donation Form
    • Allow people to make direct payments or donations to the club (not to Stoa).
    • Clubs could use this for members to register for local club, or buy club books or tshirts, pay for banquet fees, etc. http://stoausa.org/donate/
  1. Custom Donation
    • Custom donation arrangement such as: Stripe, Paypal, Square, credit cards, or shopping carts (to sell club products), etc. This will require some coordination with vendors.

 

If a club wants to add features that are marketing related, such as to help gain more visibility for their club, Stoa/Keenly Interactive can help with that as well. The pricing is more uncertain here, because there is so much variability in potential requests.

 

Marketing Add-ons:

  1. Search Engine Optimization Services
    • These are various strategies to increase the amount of visitors to a Clubsite by obtaining a high-ranking placement in the search results page of the search engine (like Google, Bing, etc.)
  1. Social Media
    • In addition to the ability to link already existing accounts to the Clubsite (built in functionality), Stoa/Keenly Interactive can help a club setup accounts on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.
      • Requests for social media management or blasts are an additional service and fee.
  2. Content Management
    • If the club wants Stoa to update and maintain all the content on their Clubsite, as opposed to a student or parent maintaining the information
  1. Custom Video Content
    • Adding custom videos to the Clubsite.
    • This is more involved and requires additional technical support from Stoa’s partner in web development Keenly Interactive.
  1. Design/Branding
    • Designing collateral, branding and other items that are more unique to individual clubs. (Collateral is printed material – business cards, brochures, flyers – used to provide information about a business and give it an image using consistent theme, colors, mottos.) These items will be contracted with Keenly Interactive on a case by case basis.
