Recruiting students - the first and most important step towards obtaining institutional goals successfully. As today's prospects will become tomorrow's alumni and they will be the ones to define the success parameters of your institution. But how to turn a prospect into a successful lead? Some of the most prominent reasons why effective lead management is not possible in many institutions are shortage of time, duplicity of leads, repetitive work, inefficient work processes and limited staff.

This is when a lead tracking system software comes into picture.

It is a software which smartly automates processes for efficient lead capture, lead tracking, lead follow up and lead generation. Now you can target potential leads with advanced personalization and gain benefit from it.

What Are The Challenges Faced By Institutions In Recruiting Students?

Dealing with a multitude of student enquiries from various channels like phone calls, emails, SMS, social media and mails through different campaigns such as PPC, search engine, social media marketing, conventional marketing, organic searches, etc. in a limited time can be overwhelming.

Keeping track of each lead including its source along with details and following up with them can be very time consuming and may lead to a lot of confusion and hamper productivity leading to missed, leaked or disengaged leads. Managing leads gets more complicated when institutions offer multiple majors or districts having multiple institutions under them. A student lead management system efficiently sorts out the leads and sends personalized automated SMS/Emails or notifications to target leads in the most effective manner making it the best choice for institutions.
