Example Site Wednesday: Child & Youth Workers Club

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.

    This site is really very cool .I like the way this site is updated.

    These r my suggestions to webs.com team

    Idea no 1 — Is there any way where we can update the news on our site using a feed from an external website. It would be great if webs creates a news app for this purpose .

    Idea no 2 — Is there any way where members can create groups like facebook & other social networking sites .

    Idea no 3 — Can members app be more social just like facebook

    Idea no 4 — Please provide a solution wherein we can rearrange videos & photo albums.

    hey why not feature an anime website next since webs has so many in webs, it doesn’t have to be my site but we are the only legal anime website besides chunckyroll that is not own by a big corporation so I’d say that pretty awesome. plus we are a premium account holder and we pay it using the site’s profit. Our store has a bunch of anime related products that sell pretty well. plus we have almost 3000 members and they’re all pretty active as you will be able to see by their comments, image and video posts and what-have ya. We have our own logo design my mom, not by that weird logo design company app thing that does not have anything for anime websites. Plus we’ve found a way to use every app on webs on the site so it should give people an idea or two. so if you’re thinking of featuring an anime website consider animekida.com the last safe anime website on this little planet. btw several of our members are gona go to sakura con and they’ll be wearing anime kida shirts so its gona be awesome.

    This is quite a good pick for an example site. I especially like the fact that they already have a wealth of content and pages because lots of sites these days don’t offer that much. The organization and synchronization among all the social networking websites is also quite convenient as well.

    I think that webs, need to publish more free templates !!! Because most of the people don’t have money to pay.. And many of the templates are old and boring, so I had to learn to work with css and html !
    But i ♥ webs !! It` s a very good site !!!
