The most successful social care platform introduces your program to your users and makes a strong first impression. This document outlines the recommendations to help you get the most out of your opportunities for customization and branding.
These are the branding customizations we recommend for a successful launch of your social care platform:
- Site Title: A unique and recognizable platform name expresses your vision for the social care network, and helps users find their way to your site.
- Custom URL: Using a custom URL will make it easier for people to find your platform and improve search engine optimization.
- Custom Landing Page: A custom landing page creates a unique search experience for users from the start.
- Tailored Home Page: A branded homepage is the starting point for a user to begin searching for social care resources. The homepage should convey what they can gain from using the platform and is also a good place to share your mission and reasons for creating the platform.
