Inbound School Marketing: Is Your Website Helping the Bottom Line?

#MPD4 Management and Professional Development Track

103 A & B, Frontier Airlines Center


The rules of the game have changed. Having a website is standard practice but your website is more than a branding piece for your institution. The majority of almost every school’s annual budget comes from tuition so helping increase enrollment has to be the site's top priority.  Are you fully leveraging it for a marketing purpose? How is your social media, blogging, mobile efforts and search engine optimization coming together to help you meet these goals? In this presentation, you'll get a blue print for success. We will discuss the importance of your website in the marketing and recruitment funnel, how you can actually get a ROI on marketing and give you formulas and calculators to financially justify future projects.
