Three Ways To Be Famous On GeoVisions Home Page

Posted by Randy LeGrant | Jul 17, 2014 10:50:00 AM

The first section is what we call a “slider.” That’s an area where we place current photos of our incredible participants and their quotes. Just down from there we have our “Latest News.” We change this out each Monday. Lower prices, new programs … anything that’s news about our programs we place here.

But then you come to your area … the Social Updates. Here is where we show you our up to the second Facebook posts, Tweets and photos from Instagram. If you add a post or photo or video to our Facebook page … you’ll be famous. Tweet about GeoVisions or Teach Abroad and you will be included in our Twitter feed. And if you share one of your Instagram photos with us … you are really famous.

When it the last time you were able to get on an organization’s Home Page? Well, you just can’t. So this is your chance to break the barriers and get on GeoVisions' Home Page.

Just go to our Facebook page and upload an incredible photo you took on your program or a photo of your travel bag as you pack for a GeoVisions program. Or Tweet about us … even a direct message will do. Let us know what you've done or read that helps others.  What we love is Instagram … that’s going to require you to share a photo or 2 or 3 with us. But your photo will show up here.

We have tried to make a website that reflects our participant’s experiences rather than just the ones we want you to see. Or the ones we think you want to see. Our new site needs to reflect our participants’ thoughts and feelings and we hope we have designed a site that will do just that.

Can you think of anything else you would like to see us add to our Home Page that is more reflective of what’s going on with the programs or with you? Leave a comment and let us know.
