3 Tips for Big Day Follow Ups
By Drew Millikin | September 13, 2018
Every day at an independent school is a big day, but the two biggest days on the admissions office calendar are Open houses and Revisit days.
Capturing the attention of prospective families while they are on campus for these days is relatively easy compared to keeping their attention after they leave. Here are three ideas for photos you can have guides capture while families are on tour, that you can organize in Vidigami and use to share awesome recaps:
1 – Family Photos
Have your tour guides get a photo of the whole family next to that iconic spot on campus. Do you have a statue of your mascot? Is there a building where everyone hangs out? Is there a distinctive building on campus?
2 – The Interest Photo
Is the prospective student interested in hockey or soccer? Be sure to get a photo of the student in the locker room or on the soccer pitch. Interested in art? Snap a photo of them chatting with the art teacher in her studio.
3 – The Selfie Challenge
This is my favorite! Create a contest—the tour group with the best selfie wins a school water bottle, t-shirt, or other fun takeaway from the school.
Once the tour guides get back, they can upload all of the photos in an album in Vidigami, where you can also add in all the other photos taken from the day. Take the best of those photos and add them to a public group set. You can then share that set out to your recent families via email, Facebook or Twitter!
