Are You Choosing To Partner With Losers?

Are You Choosing To Partner With Losers? - From Enrollment Resources

Yesterday I got off the phone with a client. It was a good news call. We’ve cut his cost-per-lead by 43% and increased his lead flow by 106% since Enrollment Resources took over the management of his Google Ads campaign. He was very happy.

But what was interesting to me was the story he told me about how his partner had been reluctant to hire us in the first place, preferring to stay with their previous vendor. It was only after a year of lousy performance that his partner finally agreed, with the caveat that: “You’ll take the blame if this doesn’t work.”

He is looking pretty good now.

I understand that some companies over promise and under deliver to “win” business. We don’t — mostly because Gregg and I don’t like liars. We also know it’s a short-sighted business development strategy, and the truth always comes out anyway.

Immediate Steps To Set Up For Virtual Admissions

Immediate Steps To Set Up For Virtual Admissions - Enrollment Resources

This is a version of the white paper published through Career Education Review, and is a deeper look into the information presented by Tom King and Gregg Meiklejohn in the March 19th podcast ‘Organize A Quality Remote Admissions Program Quickly’. We hope this information helps.

As many schools rapidly shift to online operations in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis, Admissions teams are struggling to be effective when in-person interviews are not possible. Adopting a Virtual Admissions Best Practice process is, in our opinion, crucial in avoiding lulls in enrollment over the next few months. Virtual Admissions will mitigate the current disruption and also become the new normal when the dust settles.

Most schools were not prepared for this abrupt disruption in business processes. Your school doesn’t have to face this alone. There are many associations and businesses dedicated to making sure your school comes out the other side of this situation and is prepared for the demand waiting there.

Social distancing means many people are staying home, and while there, plenty of them will be thinking about their uncertain futures. For some, this will involve searching for new careers, upgrading their skills, or continuing education they paused in a better job market. Establishing effective Virtual Admissions processes now will help you to be there to support them. Let’s take a look at how we can help these new “Explorers” choose to upgrade their skills through your school. Read more
