Top Private School Marketing Blog Posts – 2014 in Review

Rick Newberry, AISAP RoundtableIt’s hard to believe that 2014 is over. I hope that you had a great year.

As I look back over 2014, I am thankful for the continued opportunity that I have had to impact schools in their enrollment and marketing effort. Thank you for following me along the way!

Last year I spoke at the most conferences ever in a year (13 total including the following organizations: ACSI, NYSAIS, ADVIS, PEJE, RAVSAK, RENWEB, AISAP and SCS). I also worked with 40 independent and faith-based schools across the United States as well as my first school in Australia (check out the list on my website).

I also presented several webinars and wrote many blog posts. In fact, based on a review of my website analytics, the following are my top private school marketing blog posts in 2014:

1.  An Innovative Tuition and Financial Aid Strategy for Private Schools

2.  Putting the WOW into your School’s Word of Mouth – Top 5 NYSAIS Websites

3.  The 6 C’s New Parent Strategy

4.  What Drives Word of Mouth at your School

5.  Private School Marketing Lessons from the Breakfast Camp

6.  Top 5 ADVIS Websites that tell their School’s Story

7.  Every School Should Use Billboards in Their Marketing Strategy

8.  A Couple of Admissions and Marketing Rants

9.  Admissions, Private Schools and Roller Coasters

10. An Inbound Marketing Storytelling Strategy at Eastern Christian School

As I plan for my blog for this year, I would like to ask for your help. I believe that one of the ways that my blog can help you is through the continued sharing of enrollment and marketing examples from schools.

Do you have a marketing and enrollment strategy that you recently implemented that is making an impact? Perhaps you launched a new website, parent ambassador program, a social media campaign, or some other program and you want to share your story through my blog. Please email me directly at and we can discuss the next step in publishing your story through my blog.

2015 promises to be another great year. I look forward to continuing to work with more schools, launching some of my own innovative ideas for schools (stay tuned) and speaking at more conferences. I have the following conferences set so far in the first half of 2015 and hope to add some more:

Please feel free to reach out to me along the way. I am glad to help you in your role at your school in any way that I can.
