Are You Ready to Start Marketing Your School?

Featuring Shari Gannon, CEO & Creative Brand Architect at Krave Branding

Every school has a story. Every story needs to be told. So, what’s your story? What makes your school unique from all the others? Do you have a niche? Every school or business needs to have a brand foundation developed before they can truly market their idea. In this workshop, we will review your current brand and existing marketing materials and determine if you are ready to market your school. After the review, we will identify the foundational pieces that you still need to successfully market yourself and capture the results you want.

Using Marketing to Attract THE RIGHT Students to Your School

Featuring Shari Gannon, CEO & Creative Brand Architect at Krave Branding

Before you started your school, you may have noticed something missing from the other schools in your area or felt your methods would be better or more effective in educating students that would make them more successful after graduation. You dreamt of what classes you were going to offer, how you were going to run them, who you were going to serve and a multitude of other ideas that gave you a good reason to open a school in the first place.

In the early stages of any school, the common goal is to get as many students enrolled for classes as possible, no matter who they are. But, let’s face it, NOT EVERYONE is a good fit for your school and THAT’S OKAY. 

In this workshop, we will determine who your ideal target market is based on your niche and discuss marketing strategies that will attract the right students.
