Refresh Your School Storytelling During COVID-19

May 6, 2020 Emily Cretella

If you’re feeling scattered and unfocused as you try to conduct business as usual and simultaneously adjust to working from home, you’re not alone. It’s difficult to be strategic and proactive when you’re constantly putting out fires.

However, there are things we can do to ensure our school marketing and admissions efforts stay on track during this challenging time -- and many of them are simple enough to do even on our most unproductive days. 

There are five things you can do now to prepare for stellar school storytelling in the future. 

If you’re just starting out, these may be things you’ve never done. If you’re an experienced school storyteller, these are things you can revisit and refresh.

Start now, and work your way through these tasks throughout the next few weeks. By the time you’re back on campus, you’ll feel more confident and purposeful about your school marketing and admissions than ever before.
