Improve targeting to find your best fit students
Whether you're oversubscribed or want to fatten your recruitment pipeline, it's vital you effectively target and filter of prospects.
With TAP's XCM platform, you can target your best fit students through:
- Geotargeting and lead scoring. Filter your leads by location to ensure that you target students that meet your entry requirements. Then, rate prospects against your ideal student profile to focus on those likely to enroll.
- Tracked links. This feature allows admins to create a pre-filtered page based on student interests. For example, if an ambassador discovers a prospect is interested in sports and societies they can send a personalized, pre-filtered page full of relevant information.
- Student-led interactions. With TAP, prospects can choose which ambassador they want to talk to. They'll relate more to ambassadors with the same or similar interests, life experiences, and backgrounds. This gives prospects someone familiar they can chat to, and who will help them decide if they want to attend your institution.
- Targeted Frequently Asked Questions. Too often, an institution's FAQs are generic. By analyzing your data and knowing your prospect's interests you can write better, more relevant FAQs that provide real value and insight.
