Keep it Chatty
Don’t be afraid to ask prospects questions and make it a two-way conversation. Get to know them on a personal level.
Life experiences: are they from a similar part of the world? Do you speak the same languages? Did you enjoy the same subjects at school?
Hobbies and interests: can they develop these at your school, College, or University? Do you have things in common?
Stay in touch: encourage prospects to keep in touch. Whether that's on social, content that you’ve created, or coming back for a chat to see how things are.
Prospects know when you’re not being honest with them. Share the good, the bad, and the ugly about your experiences. Personal experiences, memories, and advice give prospects reassurance when it comes to their own decision-making.
Ever experienced the pain of the two blue ticks on WhatsApp? When your message has been read but no one replies? Try and avoid putting students through this on Unibuddy. If you don’t have all the answers straight away and you need to do a bit of research, that’s not a problem. You can still let them know that you have received their message and will be in touch soon with more info.
Save your responses on Unibuddy so you don’t have to repeat the same answer over and over. Unibuddy also suggests content that you can share with prospective students!
