MWJDS Wins PEJE Challenge Award!
This fall, MWJDS launched an innovative marketing program. This initiative became the basis for 2011 Partnership for Excellence in Jewish Education (PEJE) Challenge Award. MWJDS embarked on the Apple iPod Touch promotional program to grow our potential student base and widen our recruiting database. We sought to broaden awareness of MWJDS, diversify our target market, drive traffic to our updated website, and increase our “likes” on our new Facebook page. We reached out to over 600 children in our area during the 2011 High Holidays; it was the first marketing program of its kind for MWJDS. The team integrated traditional outreach approaches with significant online and social media efforts. The 2011 PEJE Challenge Award was the perfect motivator for MWJDS to be more aggressive and innovative while reexamining our marketing strategy via online and social media marketing efforts. Through this process, we made a significant shift in our strategy for future MWJDS marketing efforts.
