The 2012 Higher Education Marketing Benchmarking Report for Not-for-Profit Schools is here!
In the last few weeks, we unveiled some interesting trends uncovered in our 2012 Benchmarking Report for Not-for-Profit schools. First, we discovered that most schools feel traditional marketing methods alone are no longer enough to meet enrollment goals. So, what are schools doing to build on their traditional enrollment marketing techniques? Our second post revealed that schools are maintaining investment in offline marketing, and increasing investment in online marketing tactics. What else did we uncover? We’re glad you asked! Here are just some of the other trends that appear in this year’s report:
- There is room for growth in online programs. Although online programs are getting a lot of attention these days, and non-traditional programs and schools are all clambering to expand their online offerings, it seems that there is still space to grow in this rapidly changing sector.
- Schools are realizing they can’t do it all alone. With increased investments in new marketing tactics like targeted display, SEO, and mobile, schools are beginning to look for help among digital marketing experts.
- Top priority is getting students into seats, and keeping them there. As a result of the challenges that schools are facing these days, there has been a shift in focus from sheer volume of applications, to the quality of prospects, student engagement and retention.
