Before St. Mary’s Academy hired Enrollment Catalyst, there was no plan for their marketing strategy. They were trying new things but had no way to measure the effectiveness of their efforts. They knew they needed help. “We did a lot of research prior to hiring a marketing company and found Rick’s credentials to be exactly what we needed,” said Renae Henderson, Principal.

After the initial consultation, visiting the campus, and talking to as many staff and parents as he could, Rick Newberry of Enrollment Catalyst had formed a plan. “…his ideas that we implemented brought more attention to our school,” Henderson says. “We built a new website and added an electronic sign to the front of the property. We increased our online exposure, following his advice on how to best accomplish this.”

And the outcome? “Our results were excellent!” says Henderson. “His guidance and fantastic ideas for a marketing plan have helped us increase enrollment by 40% in one year!”

Henderson had not only hired an expert, she had found an ally. “It has been a very positive experience with Rick in our corner,” she says. She enjoyed “his down-to-earth, friendly personality, his intelligence and ideas, and most importantly, he was always accessible for consultation and assistance.” She adds, “Rick is knowledgeable in his craft, very helpful, and well-worth the time and cost to have Rick on your team!”

Now that St. Mary’s Academy has a solid marketing plan, Henderson is still reaping the rewards of hiring Enrollment Catalyst. “I love the Facebook updates and the Enrollment Catalyst Circle, where schools can ask questions and share with each other!”

How can we help?
