We absolutely recommend Village Green for all your photography and videography needs. They are great for ideas and creative direction. Most of all, Richard makes everyone he works with feel so comfortable and relaxed. We can definitely recommend! 5 stars!

He understood our brief and delivered images that we will use time and time again. Richard was willing and able to work within the constraints of our Child Safe policy and followed school protocol to ensure the safety of all. I would have no hesitation in recommending Richard’s services to colleagues in schools, and I look forward to working with him again in the near future.

We were very pleased with the beautiful images and the exceptional quality of Richard’s work. He really captured the essence of our school and we have received so many compliments about the images posted on our website and in our marketing materials since.

A ‘one-stop shop’ for photography and videography. Took our ideas far beyond expectations to create a finished product that has proven to be the envy of many other schools. Traffic on our website has increased dramatically since.

The Top 12 Benefits of a Tailored Video Content Strategy for Educational Institutions, Universities and Schools

  • 1. Drives Admissions

    As an administrator, we know that admissions play a large part in your role. A targeted video communications strategy helps you expand your reach, highlight your academic achievements, elevate your admissions materials and guide prospective students and their families through the enrolment process so that you remain top of mind as the educational institution, university or school of choice for both local and overseas students.

  • 2. Guides Students and Parents Through the Enrolment Process

    A well-crafted video strategy helps you to address potential students’ and their families’ challenges and goals, guiding them through the decision-making and enrolment process. Using video at each touchpoint during the recruitment cycle enables you to capture students’ attention, convey your unique value proposition in an engaging and authentic way, and answer questions about enrolment, registration, the campus and school life. Reducing drop offs, whilst increasing conversions.

  • 3. Builds Your School Brand and Creates Clarity

    Videos help to create a clarity around your institution, mission and curriculum, and are one of the best ways to tell your story and showcase your campus. Helping students and their families to connect with what you do, why you do it, and what makes you unique in a way that is compelling, clear, and authentic.

  • 4. Onboarding Tool

    Tailored videos such as “A day in the life of a year 7 student” can be used to educate and train your current and new students and parents. Helping them to better understand your processes and curriculum, whilst introducing new programs, services and activities that might benefit them. Boosting confidence and engagement, and improving their overall experience.

  • 5. Leverages the Power of Social Proof

    Social proof is a powerful thing.  It’s easy to underestimate the power of your past and present students and their families when it comes to your marketing initiatives. But nothing reassures, and instils trust, credibility and authority whilst overcoming objections like powerful student transformation and success stories. Testimonial videos from parents, students and faculty are key in helping parents confirm that they’re making the right choice. In fact, video testimonials were rated as the most effective marketing strategy with an 89% effectiveness rating (Social Fresh).

  • 6. Fundraising

    Need to raise funds for your school or institution? Video allows you to connect, capture, captivate and convert your school or university community like no other medium can. A well-crafted story drives an emotional connection that gets people talking and taking action. And best of all, these videos are made to share. Graduation videos, performance or concert DVDs and camp highlights can also be packaged as DVD merchandise available for sale to help you boost your fundraising initiatives.

  • 7. Showcases Your Curriculum, Programs and Activities

    Everyday school life provides an array of rich and engaging content that can showcase your institution’s curriculum, programs and activities. Video allows you to highlight your students doing what they love and helps the next generation of scholars, artists and athletes envision themselves at your institution.

  • 8. Promotes Your Events and Programs

    The school calendar is packed full of events and activities, and video is the perfect promotional, recruitment and fundraising tool for spreading the word and boosting engagement. There’s nothing like a highlight reel or behind the scenes video footage of sports events, dances, drama club, band or camp for creating a sense of buzz and anticipation. But the key to success lies in capturing the magic and creating shareable opportunities that not only engage and captivate but also maximise your exposure and help you to reach your goals. These videos allow you to generate curiosity and excitement, answer questions about what to expect and ensure that no one misses out on the magic.

  • 9. Improves Online Visibility & SEO

    Adding individual videos with their transcripts to your institutions website pages or blog posts increases time on page and keyword density, boosting SEO and your online visibility. Increasing organic search traffic by 157% (Conversion XL), and making your website 53 times more likely to reach page one of Google (Insivia).

  • 10. Boosts your Email Marketing Conversions

    Video helps create email marketing campaigns that drive conversions.  Including “video” in the subject line of your email boosts click throughs by 69%, increases open rates by 20%, and decreases the number of unsubscribes by 26%. (Hubspot)

  • 11. A Valuable and Versatile Resource

    Inform, inspire and educate your current and potential students, parents and faculty at every touchpoint.. Use your event videos, FAQs, how-tos and testimonials as a series or individually on your site, in your email campaigns, social, blog posts and newsletters. Building an invaluable and shareable library of content and resources that answers common questions, increases your digital footprint and expands your reach.

  • 12. Encourages Student, Alumni and Community Engagement

    It’s no secret that students love video. For these digital nomads, video is the most engaging way to connect, engage and empower, and for good reason. While reading text feels like work, studies show that video is more relaxing and feels like play. It’s also more memorable.

    Incorporating peer driven content into your video marketing strategy through shareable videos featuring student life, video blogs, alumni success stories and highlight reels will help you to keep your  students and their families engaged with the school when they’re not in the classroom. Engaging them in a way no other medium can.
