Marketing Your Adult Literacy Program: A "How To" Manual. Revised.
Smith, Barbara E.
This document presents a training module designed to help adult literacy program providers in New York and elsewhere to use the principles of social marketing to improve recruitment and retention in adult education programming. Literacy program providers are taught to view the social marketing process as a process of exchange between themselves as the literacy provider and their prospective students that is influenced by situational, program, social influence, receiver, and outcome variables. The specific competencies addressed in the training materials are as follows: (1) define marketing, outreach, public relations, and advertising; (2) list a range of marketing, outreach, public relations, and advertising strategies; (3) identify the characteristics of specific marketing segments; (4) develop strategies to identify and attract a range of market segments; and (5) package programs effectively. The following are among the materials included: definitions of terms related to social marketing; an overview of the operation of a social marketing campaign on adult literacy; specific steps in identifying and becoming familiar with a literacy program's target market segment; guidelines for developing a marketing campaign theme and selecting promotional materials; tips for using newspapers, television, and radio as marketing media; steps to writing better press releases; guidelines for evaluating a social marketing campaign; and a study survey instrument.
