Educe: Long view engagement & creative event strategies for higher education

Long view engagement & creative event strategies for higher education

Spring 2014
Loyola University Maryland Campaign Kick-Off

Events are a Waste of Money (unless you’ve planned what happens next)

We’ve learned from the best. Having been in the trenches with institutions such as Lehigh, Northeastern, VCU Massey Cancer Center, Gettysburg College and Johns Hopkins University as they’ve planned their event strategies, we’ve pulled together a short list of Dos and Don’ts associated with getting the highest ROI from gatherings large and small. So, read ‘em and reap…the benefits, that is.

Focus on your “A” game
Segmentation is key when planning which types of post-event follow-up are the best fit for your target audiences. It also helps to determine what’s realistic from a gift officer bandwidth perspective. The most successful efforts we’ve seen involve matching internal efforts in a tiered approach. Just as U segment guests into invitation lists of As, Bs and Cs, plan your post-gathering strategy accordingly, e.g., focusing first on the As with personal outreach, while the Bs and Cs receive a more collective touch until there is time for individualized attention.
