When recruitment starts, where do you expect your potential members to go to find out more about your chapter? Your audience lives online, and first impressions are big. Therefore, recruitment starts with your website. Your national headquarters' website might sum up your fraternity or sorority's mission, but it won't reveal the personality of your chapter.
Showcase who you are with a website design that represents your chapter and the people that make up your community. Why choose Celect? We've worked with over 2,000 organizations to design websites that represent our customers' personalities:
Nearly everyone in your chapter uses Facebook—but it’s difficult to target online fraternity or sorority planning and communication in such an overwhelming public environment. What if you could have your own private social network where you and your chapter members could interact, plan, schedule, task, communicate, grow and build an identity for your chapter?
Celect’s member management tools give you the opportunity to do exactly that. Each member creates his/her own profile and uses features like groups, forums, messages, events, newsfeeds and more to enhance communication and planning for recruitment, house management, social planning—and anything else you can imagine. It also helps you stay in touch with alumni and alumnae.
Ways to use your private social network:
Unless you’re a computer science major, you may not have the programming expertise to add content or make edits to a coded website. Celect’s content management system (CMS) is easy for any college student to use. Edit your content right on the page, no coding or programming necessary. It saves you time and money and gives you the opportunity to keep your website fresh as your chapter evolves.
Everything you need to manage your own website in one cost-effective package.
Celect’s profile feature gives your members the ability to share information within your chapter’s community that they might not want to share on a public network like Facebook— like phone numbers, alternate emails, street addresses, messenger accounts and more. While members have the ability to only share designated information, your site administrator has access to everything. Knowing about your members is a crucial part of building your community into an effective networking and social organization.
When you buy a website through Celect, you also get a payment portal that gives you a secure way to collect payments from members, alumni/alumnae and non-members alike. Our partnership with PCI-compliant credit card processing company Braintree helps you ensure that payments are processed as securely as possible.
