What is a school to do with students who spend all day on social media? Join them, of course.
That is part of a strategy that has proved successful for Brendan Schneider, the Head of Advancement of Sewickly Academy, a private school in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Brendan and his team are using Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram to engage both current, former, and prospective students, as well as their parents. This strategy has helped them increase interest in their school and maintain alumni loyalty.
In this episode of The Visual Web Brendan shared with us how he got started using social media marketing, built his online brand, and chose his marketing channels for Sewickly Academy. Listen to the full episode below.
As Brendan demonstrates, social media channels can be powerful opportunities for educational institutions and non-profits.
