Over the years of working with Christian schools, we have witnessed many schools struggle with their marketing efforts and truly understanding how to best communicate with their audiences. While they may be highly successful in developing dynamic program and curriculum, they fall short when it comes to marketing these areas, many times relying on brochures and great photography as the only means to communicate their message. In this fiercely competitive education marketplace, it is imperative that Christian schools have a strong, proactive and comprehensive marketing communications plan in place to rise above the crowded marketplace.
Otherwise, you are left asking yourself questions such as:
“Shouldn’t we have an outdoor billboard like our competitors?”
“Do we need to jump on the social media bandwagon?”
“Other schools are still doing direct mail, should we?”
“ We cannot seem to get our parents talking to other parents about our school. How do we develop an effective word of mouth strategy?”
“I am hearing more about having a crisis communication plan. What does that involve?”
