Integrated Marketing for Colleges, Universities, and Schools: A Step-by-Step Planning Guide.
Sevier, Robert A.
This book offers a step-by-step approach to marketing for educational institutions, especially colleges and universities. The book is organized into three broad sections. Section 1 makes the case for marketing in six chapters which address: (1) challenges which are or will affect colleges and universities; (2) the role of institutional mission, vision, and leadership in the marketing planning process; (3) the definition of marketing and the four Ps of marketing: product, price, place, and promotion; (4) principles of qualitative and quantitative institutional research; (5) the importance of institutional image; and (6) development of a segmenting strategy. Section 2 is on the planning process itself; its three chapters cover empowering the marketing process and building the team; the seven steps of writing a marketing plan; and evaluation of the overall process. Section 3 offers guidelines to help troubleshoot and improve the effectiveness of the marketing plan and process. Five appendices list sources of secondary research, organizations and associations, and valuable Web sites; plus a primer for working with teams and a sample faculty survey form. (Contains approximately 270 references). (DB)
