The Case For 'WHY' Your School Is A Fit
As you create your school's marketing and branding strategy make sure that you are building a case for WHY your school is the perfect place for a parent's most precious asset, their children. When many parents select a school for their child they are selecting with their heart, and their mind rationalizes that decision. Branding is about winning the heart. It is intangible and must connect to emotion.
We start your marketing and branding positioning by connecting on an emotional level with your community. From there, all the parts of your messaging, from logo, to colors, mascot, website, hallway art, uniform choices, print materials should be reinforcing the feeling you are trying to convey.
Are you top-notch and a professional learning environment? Does your website and communications show that? Everything that you put forth should be creating emotion and a feeling of belonging that others associate with your school.
