As yearbook staffs gear up for a new school year, Balfour has released an update to its customer resource center, StudioBalfour, packing a big punch with new features to help customers meet deadlines, sell more yearbooks and monitor their student body coverage.
Student Manager & Coverage Reporting
Students are more likely to buy a yearbook if they’re featured in the book. Keep tabs on who has purchased a yearbook and how many times they’re featured with the new Student Manager. Upload a list of everyone in your student body, and watch as the Student Manager syncs yearbooks sales with your yearbook index.eMarketing
Sell It! eMarketing is a personal email campaign creator built right into StudioBalfour that gives your staff advanced marketing capabilities. Powered by the student manager, eMarketing gives yearbook staffs the ability to filter groups and target specific audiences. Send an email campaign to students featured in the yearbook who haven’t yet purchased, or sell more senior ads by promoting ad space to seniors who already purchased a yearbook.
eMarketing can help in more ways than just selling yearbooks, too. Send communications thanking buyers for their purchase and or updating purchasers on yearbook distribution. Want to remind the student body about picture day or another school-wide event? Choose a campaign from our pre-designed templates and customize the message to fit your needs.
