As you ramp up your organized admission/marketing events such as an Open House or Preview Night, you need to be thinking smart about social media. You need your very own social media command center.
As a Duct Tape Marketing consultant (learn why I believe Duct Tape Marketing is the best marketing system for any private school), we focus on strategically thinking about social media, not just treating it as an isolated island. Enjoying an integrated marketing approach for your private school will not only help you see better results, you’ll have the confidence of a long-term, strategic social media effort as opposed to a “fly-by-the-seat-of-our-pants” way of doing things. Some of you know what I’m talking about. Let’s do social media better!
John Jantsch, the founder of Duct Tape Marketing, recently posted 18 elements of a strong social media command center. Have fun looking at this list and thinking about how you could implement one or more of them during your marketing season. You will need to put your innovation hat on and think “outside the box” as you adapt the suggestions to your admission event, but I suspect you will walk away with some game changing ideas that sets you apart from competing schools.
