I wasn’t sure that we needed marketing in adult ed, and wondered whether it would do anything for the growth of our program. But I have to say, I am a believer now. We have had record growth in all aspects of our program this year, and Neil’s strategies continue to be effective in so many aspects of what we do as an Adult Ed program. Not only do these marketing strategies bring in more students, but they’re bringing in more qualified students who are training-ready.
We have a combined 35 years in education and 13 years helping businesses and organiziations work out how to grow. We created Adult Ed Solutions because as the landscape of adult education began to change and educators began to shift into the world of career training, we began to see a huge need for outreach to help adult educators to achieve their goals.
Neil and Amy Richmund have a unique vantage point, as they have both had many years of experience as educators, but for the past 13 years, Neil has been a marketing entrepreneur. He has helped many types of clients, from small business owners, large multi-million dollar corporations, and non-profit organizations, with everything from building websites to mapping out marketing strategies to digital marketing tools and techniques. He specializes in helping with online visibility, taking clients from not showing up on a search to coming up first on a Google search. We are both passionate about the mission of adult education and helping our students to step into better careers and out of the cycle of poverty.
If we are to reach our goals for adult education, we absolutely have to reach out and let the community know who we are and what we can do. Neil will show you the best strategies to accomplish that. But anyone who uses marketing in education needs to know that it’s not as easy as casting a net and bringing in everyone. We have to use targeted marketing to bring in students who are the best possible match for what adult education providers can offer.
Neil can teach you some simple strategies to bring in great candidates for your program, but also help you to manage the process and track the great results you will quickly see. Because he is an educator, teaching is still his first love, so he would love to do one-on-one coaching, train your team, or model the process for you – even handling the scary tech stuff, demystifying some of the digital marketing practices that can seem overwhelming at first glance. We will help you find qualified students so you can get back to doing what you do best – change lives!
Neil Richmund is a passionate, dynamic speaker who comes from the south…WAY SOUTH. But don’t let his accent fool you – although he is from Australia, Neil has called the United States home for the past 29 years.
He has over 15 years of experience as a chaplain/teacher in Christian high schools in California, Wisconsin, Ohio, and Indiana. He has spent the last 13 years as a marketing consultant for businesses and non-profit organizations, specializing in online marketing.
He’s married to Amy Richmund, an adult educator for Wayne Township Adult Education, and he and his wife are active as youth leaders in their church in Mooresville, Indiana. Amy was a middle school teacher for Wayne Township schools for 15 years before stepping into the world of adult education.
She and Neil are both passionate about advancing the mission of adult education and helping people to step into better careers and out of the cycle of poverty.
For the past 2 years, Amy has been the Industry Specialist for Wayne Township Adult Education, working in the role of creating IETs and coordinating enrollment for career training. She quickly learned that some of Neil’s marketing strategies have played a vital role in the success of Wayne Township Adult Education getting qualified students into training programs this year, and they are both eager to share some inside secrets with other adult ed programs so that those programs can realize the same success.
Neil and Amy have three teenagers, and they enjoy travelling on mission trips as youth leaders with teenagers from their church! They are blessed to be able to live full lives and work in careers that they love, using their skills and expertise to help others.
