Strategic Approaches to Maximizing Yield in the [Admissions Funnel - Enrollment Pipeline]

We shall develop in this course a technology-assisted communications plan capitalizing on traditional techniques of sealing the deal on admitted students as well as innovative multimedia approaches to connecting with applicants and prospects in the enrollment pipeline. We shall talk about showcasing student life and other meaningful campus engagements by employing a variety of online and hybridized interaction platforms from customized Apps to social media weblogs involving current students, alumni, faculty and administration. The strategy is to provide snapshots of the social, academic, (where available) athletics and wellness transitions a new student can look forward to experiencing on campus. We will examine some cutting-edge applications for building a virtual community for stealth enquirers and prospects on the periphery, using some data-mining principles we shall establish some parameters for segmented marketing campaigns. We shall wrap up with a compendium of techniques for maximizing the yield from your admitted class.
