Founder and Team’s Intent is to Disrupt Decades-old Student Recruitment Paradigm
BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 09, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WhatsBestforMe, Inc. unveiled today its revolutionary new online-based higher education student recruitment platform, one that allows higher ed institutions to identify candidate profiles and acquire them in a fast, efficient and exclusive manner.
The platform is comprised of three elements: the college recruitment-focused www.CollegeLeadExchange.com; the prospective student-facing www.WhatsBestforMe.com; and www.BestValueColleges.org, a site dedicated to assessing and recognizing schools beyond existing rankings services.
The announcement was made by WhatsBestforMe, Inc. founder and CEO, L. Joseph Schmoke, and Barry Layne, the company’s COO/CMO.
“Admissions offices within higher education are spending billions a year on a process that has not changed much in a half-century,” said Schmoke. “I’ve spent decades starting companies that disrupted legacy processes and industries, and student recruitment is the process that needs change now.”
CollegeLeadExchange.com is a dynamic, cloud-based platform designed exclusively for schools to connect with prospective students. Schools register on the platform, specifying student traits and interests; that data is then matched with prospective enrollees who have indicated those same interests.
Student-facing WhatsBestforMe.com, a mirror image to CollegeLeadExchange.com, provides students the platform entry point to register their targeted educational goals. Recruiters then have immediate access to these high-intent candidates.
“Over the last two years, thousands of prospective students told us what they want from an institution and how to be noticed by schools that meet their needs,” said Layne. “Nearly 100 higher education marketing and recruitment professionals also told us what kind of students will best fill their programs and what they want to know about them before they make direct contact. It is that combination of first-party data from both prospective students and schools that helps power our dynamic and efficient platform.”
The BestValueColleges.org platform introduces students to schools that the company’s advisory and review team deemed to be award-worthy based on academics, costs, quality of life, and student feedback.
