Last week I was spending some time getting through the hundreds of items in my Google reader. One of the posts I came across wason a blog called The Old College Try: Marketing Higher Ed. The University of Toledo had done a video (in-house) designed to pump up the incoming students and get them excited about starting at the school.
I thought the video was really well done but did more than just pump up students. It did a really nice job of getting a group of salespeople (new students and parents) excited about the institution. What is the top question parents of new students are going to answer in their communities, at dinners, and other events back at home in September.
Where is Johnny headed to school again? How does he like it?
What better way to get a group of your best brand advocates to be excited and engaged about the institution. Well done –
