Carmel, Ind. — Phired Up will provide completely free on-line education experiences on March 20th and March 27th, 2020 focused on helping fraternities and sororities grow. No registration is necessary, but to indicate interest and get more information, please complete this form: https://tinyurl.com/
During this Coronavirus/COVID-19 “social distancing” period, Phired Up knows that fraternity/sorority members will continue to desire engaging education about how to grow their organizations. This is one small way we can help members, volunteers, and fraternity/sorority professionals do something that feels normal and productive. We’re sure there are more important things every fraternity/sorority member is concerned about, and we also know that perpetuating brotherhood and sisterhood into the future is always a worthwhile endeavor.
“Even if you’re not physically at college, now is still the time to make plans for marketing and recruitment,” said Matt Mattson, Phired Up’s co-founder and President. “Not to mention the importance of learning smart ways to engage your brothers and sisters digitally.”
The schedule of upcoming events can be found below. More sessions might be added. COMPLETE THIS FORM to indicate interest, and Phired Up will send information leading up to the live sessions: https://tinyurl.com/

“Is Fraternity/Sorority Really WORTH IT?”
Membership Engagement Principles In A Virtual World: We already know that fraternities and sororities have had a membership retention and engagement problem. But it’s worsening by the minute as members are asking “is this really worth it” (especially given the extreme circumstances of the present moment). This live digital training offers insights on how to keep members and how to keep them engaged. The principles delivered during this session are applicable to the extremes of the current moment and the normalcy that we’ll soon (hopefully) return to. Plus, Colleen wants to love on you and let you know that she (and we) are here for you right now!

“GO GREEK! Is Not A Marketing Strategy!”
Marketing Principles for Fraternities and Sororities: Fraternities and sororities MUST be ready to tell a powerful story about the value and values of our organizations starting immediately! The world is changing quickly, and it’s very noisy out there. Do you have a plan to market to the right audience with the right message and the right tactics that will result in the right new members this upcoming school year? Special time will be spent discussing very practical tactics for increasing the amount of people who demonstrate interest in sororities and fraternities.

The Future of Fraternities and Sororities: To say the world has changed in the last month would be an understatement. But it was rapidly changing anyway. It’s time for the leaders of fraternities and sororities (students, volunteers, and professionals) to be forward looking. We can’t worry about the “events scheduled for next week.” We need to be strategizing for the seismic shifts of the next 5-10 years. During this session, Phired Up will discuss our industry-wide guidance for the way people will join fraternities and sororities in Fall 2020 and beyond (and discuss the potential impacts of COVID-19 on overall fraternity/sorority membership).
