For all of our programs we are seeing that there is an overall lack of volume of attraction.

Use these next two weeks to get as many people in the pipeline as you can. Read below

to find out the key activities that you can focus on for each program to

maximize your performance and achieve your goals!

More Attraction & Greater Customer Service

What is the major metric for attraction?

Applications! There are several ways to have students go from stranger to applicant to speed up the process. Physical marketing strategies seem to be working the best!

How can you get more students to apply?

  1. Email/call past Global Leader applicants who said they were interested in exchange
  2. Contact all opens within 24 hrs
  3. Send your members and friends abroad
  4. #6weeksfortheworld and SDG focused events
  5. Application/matching focused info sessions
  6. Sending emails via university partnerships
  7. Class shouts

Don't forget to put your marketing efforts on the Marketing CRM! Aim for a minimum of 3 physical marketing efforts each week - the more you try the more success you'll see!

Check out the resources below to learn more about how to do each of these things.

Generate Leads & Go On Meetings

What counts as a lead?

A prospect becomes a lead when you have contacted them and they show interest.

How can you generate leads?

  1. Go to a networking event
  2. Ask for referrals from alumni, BoA, or professors
  3. Make cold calls and go on cold walk-ins
  4. Call past and current partners to re-raise and upscale
  5. Call all leads within 24 hrs

Are you an active seller? That means you go on a minimum of 4 meetings per month (1 meeting each week). Don't forget to put your meetings on podio when they are held!

Check out the resources below to learn more about how to do each of these things.

Don't Forget to Track Your Progress

Take advantage of the master planning/tracking tool your LC has to map out your weekly goals and progress. It is important to track ourselves because it allows us to understand the gap that still exists but also to be able to celebrate the small wins that we have - that ultimately accumulate into BIG WINS!

It is important to track the things that you have control over as well. When we focus too much on the measures that don't come until later in the process, we can lose sight of what's really important on a day to day basis.

So what can you track?

  • # leads generated
  • # meetings held
  • # calls made, walkins went on, networking events attended, etc.

  • # class shouts done, events held, etc.
  • # applicants
