The sales funnel for marketing private schools typically functions year round, each with their own seasonality of open houses and admission deadlines against which to run recruitment and enrolment campaigns.
Prospective families do a lot of research online. They’re especially invested in the familiarity and consideration stages of the customer journey, so we tend to focus marketing efforts there. The goal of private and independent schools is not just enrollment, however. They’re looking to attract students and families who will be a good fit for the school, so we also pay attention to demographic data such as location, household income and affinities.
We can help private and independent schools run specific recruitment campaigns, or we can provide full marketing support for schools with no in-house marketing capacity. Full support includes brand development, marketing collateral development and campaign planning, execution and reporting. If your school has a marketing department, our role is to support your goals and augment your efforts with creative and digital expertise not available in house.
