Video marketing continues to grow exponentially, and no wonder - for many, it's the preferred way to absorb information. Have you embraced video marketing for your school?
Video does more than just communicate information – when it’s done well, it can inspire viewers, engaging them more deeply in your brand and making them more likely to respond to your call to action. In working with our education clients and their stakeholders, we consistently hear how important video is in communicating authentically, sharing student experience, and creating meaningful connections. 55% of the online audience watches online video every day, according to recent research from Digital Information World, so sharing your message via video is an incredibly effective way to get your message across.
Utilizing video also creates opportunity to boost the signal for your marketing efforts, because you can post it on multiple channels. Posting your videos on other platforms such as YouTube and Facebook not only gets them in front of more people than posting on your website alone, but also creates an opportunity to interact with your content through liking and sharing.
In short, if you’re not currently incorporating video, you’re missing an incredible opportunity to connect and engage with prospective students and their influencers, as well as with your current students.
So where to start? Creating a recruitment video to showcase your school and its culture is a great start, but to engage your audience beyond recruitment season, there are other opportunities to create and share content through this powerful medium. Here are a few of our favorites:
Creating great videos doesn't have to break the bank. They don't even need to be formally scripted. The key is to be authentic in the message you’re delivering. Remember, you’re creating an emotional connection with your audience.
