Modernize your enrollment process or take your programs online with our expertise.
Our goal is to get actionable insights on why your college is losing prospective students, has lower than expected enrollments or re-enrollments, or has bad online reviews — and our research will be anchored to your business problems and/or opportunities.
Each consulting project will have different goals and outcomes. Consulting projects can include:
We evaluate your marketing efforts and enrollment process to provide recommendations on how the process flow, messaging, or marketing channels can improve.
Understanding how your new student onboarding experience can be improved to reduce drops and improve retention.
Evaluating your marketing department’s capabilities, staff hierarchy, and budget, providing recommendations on how to improve.
Consulting on how to offer online degrees, including the needed marketing and enrollment infrastructure.
We are consultants at heart and our research will be anchored to your business problems and/or opportunities. Our goal is to get actionable insights on why your college is losing prospective students, has low enrollments, or has lower than expected re-enrollments.
The bulk of our work will be spent on collecting the needed data points to solve for your objectives and desired outcomes. And, as storytellers, we look for the story within your data. We search for the meaning in your different systems, processes, and fragmented data.
After our research, we’ll put together a summary memo and summary presentation deck of our observations and diagnosis of what is causing your school’s problems, along with delivering a set of actionable recommendations regarding where you need to transform your marketing function or operations to unlock growth.
We look forward to sharing our findings with you and your team — this is the first step to real transformation. We’ll help you diagnose what can be causing lower than expected yield while also providing a set of recommendations that can be executed quickly to provide a more immediate impact on your next start, along with longer-term suggestions based on what other universities are doing and where consumer expectations are heading.
Our team consists of marketing veterans, advertising professionals, paid media wizards, inbound marketers, Gen Z-ers, and storytellers. Marketing (and advertising) at its core is a personal medium, and we’re bringing the human factor back to an industry that often forgets it.
Our #1 promise is that we’ll always work to truly understand your business and your customers, with the goal of creating seamless digital experiences that will delight your prospective buyers.
We have the technical know-how needed to execute campaigns, craft end-to-end digital experiences, and drive more traffic, leads, and revenue to your business — but know-how only takes an agency so far. That’s why we’ve also cultivated our soft skills (like listening, critical thinking, and a good amount of common sense) to make us a well-rounded partner you actually want to meet with on a regular basis.
We are a group of innovators rooted in the complexities of education — we know your jargon, and we know how challenging the education space can be. And we consider ourselves your growth partner.
While we’re a boutique agency, we deliver big results for universities and colleges. Our roots are in higher education lead generation and enrollment optimization with initiative strategies to improve yield. Our work has ranged from small private universities up to Tier 1 large state university systems — and everything in between.
