Who doesn’t want to improve student enrollment? Even in a great economy, schools are always looking for ways to fill an empty chair! Improving enrollment means a lot of great things for schools and programs. It means hiring better educators, it means creating jobs in general, it means improving technology for the students, it means, well, you get the gist.
Improving student enrollment is a hot topic these days because of the downward economy. We can’t help it that people are losing jobs and cannot afford to send their kids to private schools or special programs as much as they used to. What we can help though is provide a vehicle for the parents who will stop at nothing and are still looking to send their kids to non-public schools, or the infamous charter schools that are popping up all over the country.
The fact is that schools are feeling the competition crunch. They are starting their enrollment processes sooner in the year (some in December for the next school year) in an effort to lock down and fill up more seats. You have to ask yourself if you are doing all you can to advertise for your school or program. If you are spending hundreds of dollars on newspaper ads, no one is reading them–so, stop it right now! Most people are turning to the internet to get their information. It is a fact. You might be saying “oh I have a website” and I would say “that’s not enough!!” It is not enough to just have a website anymore. What you need are different, innovative and effective marketing methods that actually work and that is exactly what I teach.
I teach methods that you can implement immediately and you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars either to put these methods into place.
One of the strategies that I teach to improve student enrollment is article marketing. It is such an effective form of marketing because if done correctly, your articles can reach people who are not even searching for your school or program directly. How’s that? They can be doing general searches on the internet about schools and just come across your article in a Google search!
Let’s do a test. Open up a new window and go to the Google search engine. Type in “best private school/program in [Your School Zip Code]”. If your school or program does not come up in the results, I can easily show you how. Visit my website and take action today because this economy is not going to stay like this forever and there are still parents right now searching for schools and programs to send their kids to. Let them find your school!
