There’s Nothing Traditional about Our Strategy

Our field includes a highly competitive target audience that includes a long (12 – 14 month) decision cycle. Traditional 4-year institutions mostly focus on effective branding as well as student and parent engagement. Basically, laying a foundation for effective and inspirational storytelling will allow prospective students to be comfortable with a college decision. Above all, they can begin to envision a successful future at your college.

Connecting the Right Audience with the Right Opportunities

Community Colleges are a lot like a utility knife… they do so many things that many people are surprised to know about.

Segmented Campaigns Deliver Better Results

Because of this the marketing plan can be complicated. The approach for a traditional student will look much different than the campaigns targeting continuing education programs and specialty technical training.

Targeted Campaigns Hit the Bullseye Every Time

Narrow and specific targeting creates campaign efficiency and allows smaller budgets to still be impactful at driving new students across all a community college’s offerings. Specific targeting of high schools or demographics well suited for technical programs paired with compelling social and video content will help future students see the value as well as the wide variety of career paths that start at a community college.
