Rare Priority: 2 Student Recruitment Links Open Rhode Island School of Design Home Page
Link of the Week selections for 2019 start with a return to the basics: a rare home page design that gives priority placement to key task links for student recruitment. In this case, those are links to the #1 top task for most potential students making a first visit: “Explore our programs.” That’s joined by “Schedule a Tour.” You can’t miss either one when the page opens.
Visitors who take the opportunity to check the available academics journey to an easy to scan alpha list of undergraduate and graduate programs.
Note that RISD is a design school… and resists the need to put a photo or artwork at the top of this page. The link promises a list of programs. That promise immediately is met.
Clean. Simple. Marketing smart.
On Mobile… a “Poor” download speed rating
Alas, Google Test My Site gives the RISD home page a “Poor” rating for a 9 second mobile download speed, estimating a 29 percent visitor loss.
