Unibuddy Live can provide an alternative to large-scale campus events, or a complement to your digital offering. Unibuddy Live provides a real-time group chat that enables scheduled group-chats or 1-2-1 chats between prospects, ambassadors and university enquiry staff. You can create live feeds to organise the Live Event and control which ambassadors have access.
Prospects will sign up in the same way as the university widget, and you will have access to all the usual data points.
If you are unable to meet with students in certain countries, regions or states, you have the option to connect with them virtually on Unibuddy Live. You can schedule these live chats for specific groups of prospects, applicants or admitted students at any time, and have the option to include both staff and ambassadors in the conversation. We have recently launched Chat to Staff, so your team can have individual accounts in these live feeds. Staff participation is not limited to your team/department - you can create staff accounts for anyone at your institution including visa officers, residence advisors and finance counsellors.
Unibuddy Live events are most effective when they are segmented and in smaller groups. It might be a good idea to split your event into several more targeted events - such as by nation or by subject.
