The Big Disconnect And How To Fix It: Parents Shop For Benefits But Schools Sell Features.

Schools sell features, while parents shop for benefits for their child. And parents don’t easily connect what schools do (i.e., features and programs) with the benefits they seek. While the connection is obvious to you, it’s not to them. Families must be explicitly guided to connect what you do — and the special environment in which you do it — to the benefits they seek. That lack of connection substantially lowers interest even from best-fit families. In this interactive workshop, you will work in small breakout groups to map the key features and programs at your school to benefits that your families want. You will leave with clear direction on how to more effectively sell your school based on benefits. You will be able to rewrite website copy and re-script open houses and campus tours so they clearly connect what you do with the benefits your families are looking for.

Value propositions must be delivered, not just described. In addition, it’s parents who decide what’s of value. For enrollment marketing efforts to be authentic and successful, your value proposition must align with parents’ perceptions and be echoed in every aspect of the student and parent experience at your school. In this session, we’ll tackle the complex challenge of determining, describing and delivering your school’s value proposition.
