Marketing your private or independent school online can be done very effectively using social media. The trouble is, often, finding the time to do it.

This presentation gives school headmasters, administrators and principals some tools to separate themselves form others serving the same clientele. It also outlines what priorities to focus on in order to get the most new students.

Please contact Travis Allison if you have any questions or would like a version of this presentation for your organization.

Originally presented at the York University Private School Principal's course April 2013.
