AN INTERVIEW WITH ANDREA

Please review this Q&A that helps cover some frequently asked questions. If we have the chance to talk, I want to make sure to free up our time to focus more specifically on you and the needs of your organization.

HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN DOING WHAT YOU DO AND HOW DID YOU BEGIN HELPING SCHOOLS WITH ENROLLMENT STRATEGIES?

3purple

I’ve been working in marketing and communications for nearly 30 years. I started in national advertising for Honda, Néstle, and Pacific Life. During my career, I have worked to develop strategic communications and conversion campaigns for most industries including fintech, edtech, hospitality, automotive, packaged goods, and many more. 

In 2022, I recognized an opportunity to help influence systemic change in education and decided to pivot my business by applying my experience in supporting the promotion and development of educational institutions that have traditionally struggled with siloed, under-resourced programs that often go unnoticed by potential students in their communities. I want to break down the acronyms, funding constraints, and misconceptions about what public education is and expose the true value of its programs to the communities they serve.

 

WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS EXACTLY?

3purple

Our clients are school administrators, principals, directors or communication specialists that want to build a better understanding of best practices, as well as build in-house capacity to improve their marketing and communications. Better marketing leads to enhanced enrollment strategies, new funding sources and better meeting the needs of students.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?

3purple

Participants in our online course can expect to learn new tactics, best practices, and technologies that can support your enrollment strategies and improve your influence and brand perception. The course will also help you uncover the most effective message that highlights your greatest value to students – which will help you gain influence in the community and even land new funding opportunities.

HOW QUICKLY CAN I EXPECT RESULTS?

3purple

The online course contains a minimum of 10 modules and is self-paced. Like most online courses, you’ll get out what you put in. The course can take up to 10 weeks, depending on your pace, and will guide you through implementation activities to help you put these new ideas into practice. However, if you need additional assistance through the process, we also offer consultative services like 1:1 coaching, Q&A calls, unlimited email access, graphic design, and other resources to ensure your success.

It is important to understand that it can take time to implement these activities, as the course is quite comprehensive. To properly set expectations, you should allow at least one year of implementation before you evaluate your success.

HOW WILL WE WORK TOGETHER AND WHAT DOES THE PROGRAM ENTAIL?

3purple

What’s great is that you have the opportunity to decide how we work together! One option is to purchase access to our online course content to get you started. You can review the content with your team and have someone on your team implement the concepts at your school. If you think you’ll run into questions or feel you need additional support with the implementation, we can offer that too. If you believe your organization needs even more attention on marketing and branding – perhaps a new brand design/logo and website, our team can provide a full-service solution for your organization that leaves all of the heavy lifting to us.

IF I’M NOT SURE I’M READY TO GET STARTED, HOW CAN I SAMPLE YOUR WORK AT LOW COST TO SEE IF IT’S THE RIGHT SOLUTION FOR ME?

3purple

No problem! Purchasing our online course is a very helpful guide at the lowest cost. However, we have a number of free resources available here as well where you can find marketing tips and resources. Please join our mailing list to be notified of the free webinars we offer as well.

I HAVE A BUSY OFFICE WITH LIMITED STAFF. I WANT MORE STUDENTS ENROLLED IN THE SCHOOL, BUT I DON’T HAVE MUCH TIME AND RESOURCES TO SPARE. HOW MUCH TIME DO I NEED TO DEVOTE TO THIS?

3purple

This is a very common challenge. The good news is that our packages are flexible in the support we can offer administrators and their teams. If you have limited staff and time, our team can step in as an extension of your team for as long as you need us to meet your goals.

CAN I JUST HIRE YOU HOURLY INSTEAD OF ONE OF YOUR PACKAGES?

3purple

We don’t offer hourly support because over the years we have discovered that it doesn’t lead to the best outcomes for our clients. Instead, we want to make sure that when we work directly with our school administrators, we ensure there is plenty of time to successfully implement our programs for the best results.
