About the Episode

The what's what...

To text or not to text? That is the question. Actually, after some discussion, we decided that it’s not the first question you should be asking yourselves. 

Texting is another layer of your recruitment strategy and should be weaved into the fold, not seen as a tactic you need to utilize just because others are. Tune in and see how Shane and Mickey would first approach texting, what the tool must be able to do, and how it can be used to hyper-personalize a prospective student’s journey to enrollment. 

Fanatical Fridays is brought to you by Enrollify.  Enrollify is where higher ed comes to learn new marketing skills, discover new software and services, network with the best minds, and find their next gig.  

You can connect with Shane on LinkedIn or Twitter and Mickey on LinkedIn
