With attendees from multiple countries, including Ireland, the Netherlands, and the United States, we offered a webinar last week to discuss strategies and tactics for higher ed marketers and leaders as they help their institutions navigate the Covid-19 pandemic.
- How to reclaim your unique voice amidst growing repetition across the advertising space
- Post Covid-19 enrollment projections
- A framework for crisis management
- Survey data on emerging priorities for managing institutional budgets
- A roadmap for enrollment leaders for addressing messaging, audience needs, and programs
- The importance of strategic collaboration between marketing, admissions, and faculty
- Examples to illustrate the recommendations discussed
These are unchartered waters for higher education, and we are all in this together. A strategic approach to this crisis can strengthen your institution well beyond Covid-19. As always, let us know how we can help.
