What is the role of alumni engagement?
Alumni engagement is simply the way in which institutions maintain and build relationships with their alumni (either previous graduates from the education sector or previous employees from the corporate sector). Below, we explore the role this engagement (and therefore an alumni engagement platform) plays in supporting these institutions.
Generates word-of-mouth marketing
An engaged alumni audience is essential for supporting invaluable word-of-mouth marketing. This word-of-mouth marketing can improve the reputation of the institution and help the organisation to build a greater network of alumni (in both social and professional circles).
Increases placement opportunities
With a strong and diverse alumni community, you can help current students/employees find relevant and sought-after placement opportunities either during their time at the institution or after. In turn, this can improve student/employee satisfaction, increase the pool of suitable role models, and help support alumni mentoring programmes.
Improves fundraising prospects
With an alumni engagement platform you can easily arrange alumni fundraisers, helping your institution to raise money for new equipment, building work, or facilities. From selling tickets for auctions and talks to organising formal dinners and reunions, there’s no shortage of ways to fundraise.
