How to Convince Your Team to Add Scoir to Your Recruitment Strategy

How to Convince Your Team to Add Scoir to Your Recruitment Strategy

As a college admissions professional, you know your way around enrollment marketing tools. Especially this time of year, the pressure is on to maximize the tools you have.

You may be thinking: How can we reach students more efficiently? Are the tools we have really worth the investment? 

Perhaps you even have a tool in mind you want your team to utilize. 

If you’re considering Scoir as an enrollment marketing tool, this article can help convince your colleagues to jump on board!

We’ll explore what to tell your team about Scoir, including:

 

What is Scoir?

Scoir expands college access and improves student outcomes by connecting students, supporters, high schools, and colleges with simple software and solutions for a better admissions experience. Roughly 1 million students, 200,000 parents/guardians, and 10,000 counselors use Scoir.

We help colleges specifically with their student recruitment and enrollment marketing. 

We get colleges in front of the right students and make real connections on the network where discovery, search, and planning for college happens.

Every college has a profile on Scoir, similar to a social media profile. When you become a Scoir partner, you can take your profile to the next level, message students who follow your school on Scoir, and see insights about those who follow you.

 

Why You Should Consider Scoir

 

Scoir helps college admissions teams:

  • Save time
  • Save money
  • Reduce stress

…all by helping colleges meet high-intent, best-fit students as early as freshman year of high school.

It only takes a few hours per month to manage your presence on Scoir, making it a great option for busy teams (or, you can pay us to do it for you with Managed Subscriptions).

 

Scoir can be a great fit for your institution if you’re looking to:

  • Expand your funnel and grow your audience 
  • Get ahead of the changing market dynamics (the Search Cliff and enrollment cliff, for example)
  • Focus on reaching students who are highly likely to yield


Scoir is different from other enrollment marketing solutions in that:

  • We help colleges reach new, diverse stealth students where they’re at with Premium Presence
  • We allow colleges to reach students and student influencers (think: parents/guardians) via in-app Messaging
  • You have the option to let us join your team (at a much lower cost than a full-time team member) with Managed Subscriptions
  • You can view in-depth data insights on who is interested in your college on Scoir and segment your communications accordingly (Title 1, first gen, rural students, etc.) with our Insights Dashboard

…all while protecting students’ Personally Identifiable Information (PII). 

Scoir is the only network built for full-funnel enrollment marketing.

Scoir has solutions for every stage in your marketing funnel, and you can see that at a glance in this slide from the event Why Scoir is a Must-Have Enrollment Marketing Tool. Sign up for the next one for more information on how Scoir can support your enrollment marketing goals.
