Are you telling a story that stands out from competitor schools? That speaks directly to your dream families? That makes prospective students trust you with their success?
…if your dream students and families sought YOU out. If they saw your school as the answer to their questions; the solution to their challenges; the partner they could trust.
Imagine if they believed in your value; understood your school’s personality; knew what it felt like to be part of your community.
Now imagine if they did all of this before ever visiting your campus, or picking up the phone, or meeting with your admissions team.
WHEN YOU HAVE A STRONG SCHOOL STORY, IT’S IMAGINABLE. BECAUSE IT HAPPENS FOR SCHOOLS EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Here at Cursive, we take story seriously. Story defines the way we work with our clients and the way we share our knowledge with our readers. And from our experience, we know that story is also what you need to reach your school marketing and admissions goals.
I’m Emily Cretella: strategic storyteller, content marketer and school marketer’s best business friend.
I’ve spent the last 15 years helping my clients create and share stories their audiences love, and this I know: a spectacular story is the spark that sets all marketing and communications up for success.
I WANT TO HEAR YOUR SCHOOL STORY. ARE YOU READY TO TELL IT?
“Perhaps our Head of School’s reaction following Emily’s presentation of our story sums it up best. He said: ‘Wow, she’s really good. I wouldn’t change a word of anything she presented.’ Our investment in Cursive is worth every dollar!”
“With Cursive’s help, we have now increased enrollment more than 50% and the inquiries are arriving faster than we can respond to them.”
“Emily is smart, imaginative, engaged, thoughtful and professional. We’re developing great content together, as well as a comprehensive plan for future expected accomplishments.”
“Emily really listened. She helped us get our brand story right. She gave us a platform and story to go out to market with and present our true value proposition. I would highly recommend her to schools and advancement offices that want a new eye and constructive feedback.”
“Our experience working with Emily Cretella was AWESOME. We are so grateful we found her. Emily is friendly, flexible, positive, professional, efficient, and an exceptionally skilled writer. She has an extraordinary ability to synthesize seemingly disparate or complex information into one coherent and clear message.”
“Working with Emily made us all get in a room and talk through our strengths and weaknesses, differentiators, cultures and priorities. Her process helped up zero in our brand story. Emily really brings it all together.”
“There’s no learning curve with Emily; she ‘got us’ right off the bat. She’s a high-quality resource who helped me deliver a great online story.”
