"In a very short time, College Sports Online has proven
to be one of the best investments our athletic department has
ever made. With an extremely limited budget, College Sports
Online designed a very professional, interactive and
informative web site which generates compliments daily from
boosters, parents, media and faculty and staff across our
university. The results and information are updated almost
immediately and I can always count on College Sports Online
being very receptive to whatever needs I might have. I
wholeheartedly recommend College Sports Online. It will prove
to be the best investment you will ever make."
Cal State San
"College Sports Online has proven to be the perfect
solution for our athletic website needs. College Sports Online
is solid when it comes to format, navigation, prompt posting
of releases, results, HTML stats, photos as well as service
and working with me on special requests. It is an invaluable
asset, an opinion shared by several colleagues in the CCAA. If
you are a one-person SID office like mine, I highly recommend
College Sports Online."
Intercollegiate Athletic Conference
Great job with the Website. It is really impressive and
only gets better.
In track, for example, one contact made as a result of
the Website culminated in a verbal commitment from a blue-chip
Newport News Apprentice
We have gotten a ton of compliments on the new Website.
By allowing College Sports Online to develop
and maintain an athletic Web site, its clients will receive
additional benefits. These can be defined as follows:
Sports Information Personnel Will Have Time
College Sports Online shoulders the Web site work letting sports
information personnel have time to concentrate on their regular
College Sports Onlines Targeted
College Sports Online believes that all schools regardless
of size should have as much publicity as they can generate.
Their athletes who faithfully practice and compete deserve no
less. Consistent with that philosophy, our targeted clients are
not high-profile schools, but rather smaller ones who have the
desire for an online presence, but not the in-house capabilities
and/or resources. We believe that's a niche that College Sports
Online can, and has, filled.
College Sports Online Knows the Subject
College Sports Online understands the sports subject and can
serve its clients beyond just the mechanics of putting a Web site
together. We understand the end use of athletic department Web
sites and can participate in developing content that provides
viewers the information they would like, and expect, to see. By
virtue of having a broad base of clients, content ideas used on
another client's Website, that have been positively received, can
be suggested to others to add even more to the site's interest.
College Sports Onlines Standard Web
College Sports Online has defined a standard Web site
that can be supplied to its clients. Using such a methodology will
allow College Sports Online to take advantage of already-developed
content ideas. The real benefit is that both parties know the end
product at the start. This is not to say that other items desired
for inclusion will not be entertained. College Sports Online
prides itself in being responsive to its clients and will be eager
to accommodate reasonable content changes or additions on a
College Sports Onlines Fee Structure
The efficiency gained by using a standard site
approach helps to keep site development and maintenance fees low.
College Sports Online is well aware of budget restrictions that
smaller clients may have and believes its fees address this
situation and are fair to both parties.
College Sports Onlines Sensitivity to
In most cases, smaller schools that have athletic department Web
sites must rely on the schools computer department to
prepare and maintain the site. Many times College Sports Online
has heard about how this has turned into an unsatisfactory
arrangement, e.g., tardy updates. College Sports Online is
sensitive to issues and concerns of intercollegiate athletic
departments and conferences and is responsive to their needs.
College Sports Online's "Client-Base
A rather bold term for something perceived to be a real plus
for Sports Information Directors. A number of our clients compete
against each other quite frequently. For many of these events, the
host SID prepares an event release which is used by the visitors.
Should both be clients of College Sports Online, the host SID can
e-mail the release to College Sports Online as normal, but with
the notation to use for the visitor also (with pre-authorization
of course). For the visiting-team's SID, this eliminates some
amount of time getting the information to College Sports Online.
Other Benefits to Potential Clients
There are numerous times when special events are held, or
situations occur, that need to be promoted to some extent.
Spotlighting them on the Website's home page is important, and
placing relevant, tasteful images thereon can be an attention
grabber. In some methods of Web page modification used by sports
information personnel, making such graphic additions may not be as
straightforward as needed, or allow the flexibility to place
images in optimum locations. College Sports Online has
demonstrated the ability to assist its clients in promoting
special situations, and there are, on client Websites at any one
time, examples of the type of graphics just described.
