The COVID-19 crisis has turned everything upside down, and no one knows for certain how the next few weeks and months will unfold. Even so, while managing the immediate issues involving the coronavirus outbreak, community college marketers need to also turn their attention to summer and fall enrollment.

It's imperative to remain focused on filling classes, either online or on-site, and keeping students enrolled and on track. Easily said but not so easily done? Not necessarily. There are some immediate digital tactics that can be deployed to communicate with current and prospective students to minimize the disruption to summer and fall enrollment.

This webinar provides digital marketing solutions -- many involving alternative uses of geofencing and digital -- to reach various targeted audiences, including current students, summer guest students, high school seniors, and unemployed and underemployed adults. It will also discuss strategies for holding virtual open houses, maintaining a focus on brand awareness, and promoting specific college programs.
