What they do
82% of internet traffic is video, and it’s the most popular medium of communication (and entertainment) for Gen Z. Different from previous generations, Gen Z prefers their video content to be interactive, authentic and what speaks to them. Admission teams at universities and colleges must now plan their outreach and recruitment with Generation Z in mind. That’s why here at Goodkind, our customers use video messaging to show prospective students that they care.
Like Snapchat and TikTok, video messaging doesn’t just need to be short form to be successful. Video messaging needs to be easy to record and use. With Goodkind’s video messaging platform, we have helped higher education admission, recruitment and marketing teams boost yield by 19% and decrease melt by even more.
Goodkind has made it possible to add powerful video touchpoints to any point in the student journey by seamlessly integrating with your current systems and workflow. We integrate with CRMs like Slate, Salesforce, Hubspot, Banner and others.
With our integrations, enrollment managers can act on student engagement data and insights to deliver the right message to the right student at the right time. Videos can also be delivered through multiple channels like SMS, WhatsApp or email.
- Video messaging platform built for recruiting, admissions and enrollment marketing teams
