We understand that interacting and engaging as a community is an important lifeline in todays connected world. Your personal experiences can re-enter the network and benefit us all. Your ideas and opinions can bring an international perspective to local issues and lift the discourse in ways previously unforeseen.
Engagement means join us, and then join-in and be part of a unique community:
We have created guidelines that apply to everyone who posts a comment. Overall we anticipate that your comments will add value to the users of our services and owners of our listings.
We will of course moderate comments and sometimes edit the content. You may experience a slight delay while we do this.
Everybody can have a negative experience and occasionally a venue can recieve a less than optimal comment. I you feel the need to complain we aks that you do so in a respectful and productive manner. Remember that turning a negative experience into positive action can in and of itself, be extremely empowering.
Blogs have become a major marketing vehicle for building a community around business culture, and smart content that connects with the fundamental drivers of consumers. We want to publish blogs with topics that deal with practical help to those that challenge and develop our thinking.
We publish blogs from three different sources:
We post site blogs frequently, but expect that venue blogs will eventually populate our pages as they respond to the content marketing opportunities on offer via our kidsnschools consumer engagement platform.
People like reading and writing content and sharing it too. Great blogs may be promoted and featured as site content, which will make your showcase more visible and differentiate your offering in the eyes of your customers.
Potential sponsors can look here to learn more about blog articles.
Bloggers should be authentic and write in an easy-to-read, conversational style that their target audience will understand and relate to.
We invite bloggers to craft a narrative around customer data - identify what users want from your product or service, including information that may be missing from your page or your website, or even your operation. Once you know how to solve customer concerns with content, you will produce and bring real value.
Venues' need to identify what the people in their target market are talking about and what they are asking for. If there's a certain topic everyone is talking about, identify it and write about it. Don’t bury your data, give it context to make it meaningful and engaging to people.
Focus on K-12 Education and the combined interests of our learning community; do not drift into other areas. Well-written, thoughtful and even fun blogs can become instrumental in setting the tone and motivating readership. Instrumental can mean:
Content is a big part of how we participate as a community, so we hope that you will be inspired to upload and share content. We curate content in the form of site and venue blogs, as well as posted comments. The images that you upload of yourselves and your venues are content. An image used for story-telling or conveying information in a video is also content.
We are committed to the best quality experience, so please follow this general advice:
Our Vietnam pilot is designed to run prior to taking big decisions as we go forward. Our design, data structure, navigation and user experience is what will feature uppermost, and what we will evaluate at the end.
