Your School’s Marketing and Enrollment Stories of Success

I am on vacation this week. My wife and I have been enjoying the week on the beach on Captiva Island, FL. Captiva is one of my favorite places to visit in Florida and I highly recommend it as a vacation destination.

Just the other night we bought dessert at The Bubble Room and enjoyed eating our red velvet cake and chocolate cake while watching the sunset from our lanai! By the way, I love anything chocolate!

As I am reflecting on the beach, listening to the waves crash on the sand and feeling the warm sun on my body, I am thinking about how I can continue to help independent and faith-based schools.

In fact, on Tuesday, October 9, at 2pm, I will be leading a free webinar for EdSocialMedia entitled: “Using the WEB to Inspire WOM for Your School.” You can click on the link to register for this webinar.

During the past decade I have had many opportunities to coach schools in their marketing and enrollment strategies, speak at conferences for organizations including AISAP, SSATB, ACSI and state organizations such as FCIS, GISA, and TAIS, and have also written many blog posts (by the way, thanks for reading!). I am passionate about helping schools grow and moving leaders to the next level in their marketing and enrollment effort.

As I continue to provide content, ideas and strategies that are relevant and practical for school leaders including heads, trustees, admission directors, marketing directors and communication directors, I would like to write about your school’s marketing and enrollment story–your successes and best practices.

I would like to write about your stories–what works for you at your school. Click here to share your stories with me.

One of the next steps for me is to write several e-books on the topics of recruitment, retention, web-based marketing, word of mouth marketing and more.

In order to do this, I need to learn more about what works for your school. I would like examples of your strategies and successes. I would like to include your stories and best practices in my future writings and to share them at conferences. Think about these questions:

What is your marketing and enrollment story of success at your school?

What is a marketing or enrollment best practice at your school that I could share with others?

What are some web-based or word of mouth marketing strategies that work at your school?

How do you tell your story on the Web and inspire word of mouth?

And, if you have a story of success to share with me, I will definitely give you and your school the credit.

Therefore, I would like to ask you to tell me your story (or you can email me directly at

Click here to tell me your marketing and enrollment stories.

I look forward to hearing from you and including your stories of success in an upcoming e-book or blog post.

I know that you have a story to tell.
