This week we have a really great site to showcase. CYW Club is a website that acts as a resource for professionals, students and parents that work with children and youth. What makes CYW Club so unique is that a lot of their content (worksheets, activities, and multimedia) are all contributed by members. This is a great idea that not only helps to build content on your website, but it also allows your members to be active and share their own knowledge. Take a look around the site for yourself!
CYW Club is a really interesting site in that it relies on their member’s making contributions for content. Their strategy has been successful thus far as they already have quite a bit of content and a lot of visitors for the short amount of time that the site has been up. Check out some of the interesting Webs features that CYW Club makes use of:
- Wibiya Social Bar is an easy to use, highly customizable social bar that allows you to place social media widgets and content-sharing buttons to the bottom of your site. The eye-catching bar gives visitors lots of fun ways to spread the word about your site.
- Documents app is a great way to share documents, spreadsheets, or presentations with your visitors.
- Music and Podcasts app is a great way to let your visitors listen, download, and subscribe to your audio program. This is also a fantastic way to share your personality over the internet.
Simple design and navigation are the backbone to every website, and CYW does a great job of this. Although they have a great web design, that is not the only characteristic of a good site.
So, what is the secret to CYW Club’s success? It’s not really a secret, but all great things start with a great idea. CYW Club had an idea to fulfill a need and they acted on this idea. We commend CYW Club’s work and their website design.
