How Do You Market A School Program?

Columbia Academy | Summer Camp Enrollment Materials

As an Ohio advertising agency with years of school marketing experience, our knack for creativity has helped Columbia Academy in Maryland consistently meet its Summer Camp enrollment goals. Are you wondering how to promote your summer camp and fill up those registrations? Start by creating a theme and highlighting your camp’s unique features months before enrollment. Find a school marketing agency that can create graphics that will get parents and kids excited about attending. Consider a branded giveaway item like a themed t-shirt for early registrants. Next, complete all the print and digital marketing assets you need to reach your audience and deploy them in conjunction with a dedicated landing page.

Print Marketing Advantage: It’s Inherently Engaging

Providence House | Multi-Panel Z-Card

Linear Creative designed this z-foldout card for Providence House to highlight the crisis nursery center’s vital services. The two-sided, multiple-panel z-card features approximately 20 infographics that we created to communicate powerful facts meant to spark donations, volunteering and other types of support. Foldable pocket-sized cards are a highly tactile, engaging and memorable alternative to traditional pamphlets. As research continues to prove that users prefer short, condensed visual content as opposed to reading even the smallest of paragraphs a properly designed foldout card can make a big impact on an audience. The best part? Users keep them handy for longer periods of time.
