Book Reviews

Story Marketing for Christian Schools by Ralph Cochran

“With unique expertise and experience, Cochran has written a book that confirms the tremendous value of telling the stories and getting the word out about the Christian school. Found within the pages of this book are stimulating stories and practical content that will not only gain the attention of the reader but ultimately benefit the practitioner in reaching the hearts and minds of potential families who are considering a Christian school for their children. It is one of the few books that speaks specifically to how one can advance a given school’s enrollment, by capitalizing on the daily reporting and unfolding of stories that reflect well on an education that is alive, and relevant for today’s society.”

Dr. Sandy Outlar
Ambassador to Christian Schools, Lancaster Bible College

“Experienced parents and teachers know that Christian schools are not knowledge factories. We are in the education business, which is not the same thing as manufacturing. It is not even the same thing as training. Educators have taken on the task of formation—as one writer has expressed it, schools are about formation, not primarily information. This is just another way of saying that education must be pursued as though people mattered.

But that’s as far as it goes, even when a school is a good school, and this crucial reality is remembered in the administration of the school and the day-to-day instruction in the classroom. When it comes to marketing that (excellent) school, two kinds of failures are common. Either the school is not marketed at all, or the school defaults to the American factory settings, which means the school is marketed in the same way other products are. Be it butter, cars, books, widgets, or schools, we revert to what someone learned in his business major thirty years ago. But it is a new world, and Ralph Cochran has provided us with a valuable service. He proposes a way of marketing your school as though people mattered, and, as it turns out, this is consistent with the conviction that results matter also.”

How do we cut through today’s noise to help ‘potential customers’ learn the right questions and choose our school, year after year? How do we guard the ‘back door’ with more effective student retention? The days of mailing out postcards, hosting simple events, and posting a few Facebook updates are long gone.

In an age of sound bites, limited time, and hyper-distracted parents, Ralph Cochran’s new book, ‘Story Marketing for Christian Schools,’ provides the answer to those who market Christian schools.
Ralph’s winsome book begins by framing the right questions to ask. He covers his proven inbound marketing approach at both the philosophical and strategic level but also provides practical tools, including worksheets, to better empower ‘word-of-mouth marketing.”
