Help When Using Email Marketing in your Recruitment Strategy

The NAFSA regional conferences have come to an end but that doesn’t mean access to our session presentations have as well. This year we attended and presented at ten of the eleven regionals on developing an email communications plan to recruit international students. Within our sessions, we covered topics including:

  • Knowing your audience so you can tailor your message
  • Creating a remarkable subject line to entice opens
  • Using engaging and relevant content to move students through the admissions funnel
  • Tracking and testing to ensure maximum delivery and results
