Improving Yield Through Digital Strategies

For a college or university admissions office, there may be no metric more important or more scrutinized than yield rate. For most schools, yield rates go beyond showing what students want to attend a school - it is also used to guide funding, marketing tactics, and admissions strategies. Yet despite a focus on yield rates, they have been falling steadily for both public and private colleges for over fifteen years. And with the impact of COVID, yielding a class is even harder: schools are struggling with a lack of in-person events, no campus tours, and reduced staff. How can schools look to turn this trend around for themselves? By incorporating digital strategies that focus on more than just applicant generation. Statwax will show you how to leverage your existing data, minimal budgets, and existing digital channels to create an applicant-nurturing campaign designed to improve yield and hit your true start goals.
