Enrollment Resources has completed a thorough review of the new regulations being enacted by the Department of Education on July 1, 2011 affecting Private, For-Profit Career Schools. We have summarized the Gainful Employment and Misrepresentation regulations into a 5-page Client Brief to assist clients with compliance to the coming regulations.
As you know, the new federal DOE regulation norms are coming into effect on July 1, 2011. We’ve been working hard to make sense of the them and make sure we are compliant in our work for you.
Through this, three things are coming clear that bear some thought, that I feel compelled to share:
- Incentive compensation rule is likely to produce an exodus of quality admissions staff from the industry
- Lead flow is likely to contract as a result of the new rules governing misrepresentation
- Schools without admissions compliance strategies are at greater risk for Accreditation consequences Read more
Wow, it’s 2011. My Co-Founder, Shane Sparks, and I have been at this marketing game a long time. It seems we’ve seen every scam, new-fangled idea and so-called “marketing innovation” come and go several times over. Today, the core fundamentals established in the early 20th century are largely the same, except for four crucial elements… Read more
How the Right Balance of Images & Copy on Your Website Can Mean a Big Return in Conversions
A number of us here at Enrollment Resources (ER) recently attended an interesting webinar put on by MarketingExperiments, an internet-based research lab dedicated to conducting experiments in optimizing sales and marketing processes. After the webinar, we got to talking about a topic that comes up again and again when we’re looking at and designing web pages: “Images vs. Copy.”
We’re always trying to help schools articulate their offering in a way that is clear, distinct, and speaks directly to the target market. Most often we do this through copy.
This webinar was a great reminder of the power that a good image can have (and the unfortunate power that a poor image can have too). Read more
Enrollment Resources Helps UVic MBA Program Combat Competitive Market and Increase Enrollment
“Some places think they can sell you something but Enrollment Resource knows Post Secondary and that’s what we needed. We needed to work with someone who ‘gets it’. Going through the Enrollment Resources program has really helped us hone our systems” Pat Elemans, Assistant Dean and MBA Program Director of the University of Victoria (UVic) Masters in Business Administration (MBA) program
Elemans faced some unique challenges in her role in the MBA program at the University of Victoria. As a specialty school within the larger public post secondary institution, Elemans and her staff operate in the heart of a very competitive industry.
“I’d like to say we’re in a market where we have thousands and thousands of applicants and we can pick and choose the brightest and the best – it’s unfortunately not a market like that at all. It’s a very competitive market so we wanted to make sure that the systems we had in place were working. If not, are there better systems out there that we should be using?” said Elemans. Read more
Today, in the Higher Education field, in the area of marketing in particular, opportunities abound to leverage your time and money to increase school revenue. These points of leverage create results greater than what seems to be possible. Organically a School can typically grow 20-30% per year without a huge stress on infrastructure. Yet in growing organically, one can often get steamrolled by competitors who grab market share at a greater pace or simply lose the potential of a program opportunity. Nature abhors a vacuum. Slow organic growth particularly when rolling out a new program or geography often doesn’t do the trick in the cut and thrust world of marketing. Read more
