Enrollment Marketing

Down Arrow

You don’t have to choose between making a big impression and generating a big response

The secret to standing out in a competitive market is a strategic mix of art and science. You need compelling creative that stays emotionally true to your brand – and powerful attribution models to continually optimize your marketing mix.

That’s why we developed our brand-direct approach to enrollment marketing, which combines strong and strategic brand development with direct response marketing that drives results. All through an integrated agency of record model that provides closed-loop attribution in order to maximize enrollment growth while minimizing marketing spend.

Higher Education’s Only Truly Integrated Agency of Record

Many institutions use different vendors for different marketing channels. This strategy is not only incredibly inefficient and makes it almost impossible to convey a consistent brand, but you’re also losing powerful data insights. Your prospective student data often gets stuck in silos, and you can’t truly measure your ROI. Our integrated agency of record model:

  • Ensures brand consistency across all marketing channels

  • Provides closed-loop attribution to determine exactly what channels are working, and what’s working together

  • Offers channel-neutrality by creating whatever marketing mix works best, unlike some vendors incentivized to increase their own slice of your marketing pie

  • Provides continuous optimization of your marketing mix to maximize your ROI and enrollment growth
