Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 06, 2012
An increasing number of students are using Internet-based sites to find the right college for their degree program. With the rising cost of traditional college degrees, many students are finding that online degrees and certification programs may be more affordable and offer more options for their needs. And all-inclusive site for future students, YourDegree.com, will be launching to help students find not only the right degree for their career choices, but also the right school, funding options and offer other resources for their educational development. The site is set to launch during the early days of September 2012, with expansions occurring over the course of the next several months.
The launch seminar was held by marketing manager in representative Jeff Giles during the last few days of August 2012. During this large seminar Mr. Giles was informative regarding the upcoming launch of the site and what the site has to offer to students that other sites may not have. “YourDegree.com offers a one-stop educational and informational location for students looking for degree programs, schools, and how to fund their educational endeavors. The site will offer sections for students to search for programs based on career choices as well as based on the level of degree. In addition to this degree search engine, the site will also offer options for student funding, grants and organizations that may be able to help a student find their educational plans.”
Mr. Giles went on to discuss how many sites only offer one or two options that the YourDegree.com site will offer as part of an all-inclusive site experience. In this discussion, Mr. Giles discussed how many sites only offer students a chance to find the college that they want and even when they select a college. They are forwarded to a squeeze page that offers the students request for information rather than finding out the information at that time. He suggested that the site will move away from this type of funneling and move toward offering the student and all-inclusive option of searching for the school, finding the school and being able to find the information they need about the school without requesting further information or receiving an unnecessary sales call.
The site will be undergoing expansions over the next few weeks to a few months in an effort to offer students even more resources for their program choices. These resources will include financial aid options, grant options, organizations offering special scholarship programs and options for students wishing to choose an alternative personal loan rather than going through federal financial aid. The site will also include resources on job and career grows, as well as resources for specific degree levels, including undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate degree programs.
