Looking at College Enrollment and How to Increase It

 Higher education has never been more important, with many people looking to enhance their skills and achieve more in life. With so many options available, including part-time programs and online courses, there are many ways for students to return to school in a way that fits with their lifestyle and career dreams. For college administrators, how can you get students enrolling at your campus, rather than a different one? Let’s look at what’s attractive to students.

Collaborate with a Marketing Professional

If you’re busy enough without taking on the school’s marketing aspects, consider hiring a marketing professional to boost student recruitment. Choose a forward-thinking team like to improve freshman enrollment rates through a range of innovative methods, including video campaigns.

Higher ed marketing isn’t something you can master overnight, so why leave enrollment levels to chance or risk tarnishing the school’s reputation by sending the wrong message online? Instead, go with the experts who understand the field; they measure the related data to get you the desired boost in student enrollment.

Get on Social Media

A great way for colleges to connect with potential students is on social media. There are many platforms to choose from, including Facebook and YouTube. Start conversations, pose questions, and get your campus known to those who might apply now or in the future to your courses.

Besides providing updates on what your college has to offer, you can also engage in conversations with potential pupils. Doing so can increase the engagement rate you’re getting and boost enrollment this year. Be sure to answer questions they ask of you, whether it’s about courses or the campus. 

Involve Parents

While this one might surprise you, many young adults want to involve at least one of their parents in their search for the best college. Parents can support their son or daughter in choosing colleges and assist them as needed, but it’s crucial that they do not make decisions for their kids.

Showcase Successes

Does your college have alumni who have gone onto impressive jobs or made a difference in the community? If so, spotlight these success stories on your website. 

Doing so can help those interested in your college to see what they can achieve by going there. The successful graduates are real stories that showcase how well your campus provides the education to excel in different careers after graduation.

On a related note, ask current students for photos of them studying or interacting and get quotes from them about their experience at your school. Find out what they love and broadcast it on your website, as well as on social media. You can even dedicate a specific part of your website to showcasing previous or admitted pupils.

Rather than telling people how great your college is, why not let the students speak for you? The message will be significantly more powerful.

Conclusions on Enrolling Students

Enrolling students can be tough, but it’s easier when you collaborate with a marketing expert and use smart strategies to improve admission rates. By understanding what activities work the best for your campus, you can attract your best-fit students.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
