Recruitment always starts with search.
Purchase names and it's off to the races, right? Not so fast. An overflowing inquiry pool is not necessarily an indication that you'll meet this year's enrollment goals. When the same old strategies aren't working, it might be time to try something new.
The effects of 2020 on records for searching will impact recruitment cycles for years to come. We'll discuss other industry methods of lead generation and how they can be applied to higher education.
Clicks are great, but enrollment is the goal. Let's talk about how to treat search like your most powerful brand exercise designed to impact recruitment goals.
