Learn to reach prospective students more effectively by choosing the right video channel.

Video is an essential recruitment marketing tool in higher education. However, with video now embedded into social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram (as well as conventional options like YouTube), you may struggle in deciding which channels you should use to reach prospective students – and how you should use them.

Join us for a webcast that will teach you how to integrate more video content into your recruitment marketing efforts with best practices for:

  • Facebook/Live
  • Instagram/Live/Stories/IGTV
  • YouTube
  • Snapchat
  • TikTok

Throughout this online training, you will hear success stories and see examples of how our experts are using video in recruitment marketing at their own institutions.

Who Should Attend

This webcast has been designed for enrollment management, admissions, and marketing professionals who would like to:

  • Increase their use of video (both live and on-demand) in recruitment marketing efforts, and
  • Gain new ideas and inspiration from examples of what other institutions are doing.


During this webcast, we will address how to best use both live and pre-produced video that is specifically positioned for prospective and admitted students. We will explore each of the following questions as they relate to Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Snapchat:

  • How much new content should I be creating?
  • What kinds of videos are other institutions creating and sharing with prospective students?
  • Which channels should be prioritized for both the creation and the sharing of video?
  • What results have other institutions seen from using video in their recruitment marketing efforts?

You will also leave with brief suggestions for TikTok.
