Despite its 30-years of existence many area parents had no perception of the school beyond its private status and higher cost. Additionally, to many, "Montessori" was a foreign, esoteric concept. Yet, the school was/is the best in the region.
In a very competitive educational environment and terrible economy the marketing goal was to convince these parents that The Cobb School was the absolute best place for their child.
Step 1: Marketing Therapy which determined the need for a compelling brand identity with more aggressive, creative marketing leveraging the many Cobb School attributes.
Step 2: Create a strong, positive, memorable tagline.
Step 3: Create a strong, positive and memorable direct mail piece targeting the local parents.
Step 4: Replace expensive, ineffective local print ads with more effective web marketing via a compelling and informational video testimonial campaign featured on the school website, Facebook page, and YouTube. The videos could also be adapted to local cable TV.
Step 5: Fuel the effort with additional guerrilla marketing tactics to help generate local buzz and regional press.
