For every stage of the journey
students need a connection.

A Student’s Journey Isn’t Linear So Your Marketing Plan Shouldn’t Be Either.

A student’s circle of influence drives their higher education decisions – including opinions from parents, guardians, school advisors, family and friends. As an education marketer, you need a partner who understands every phase of the journey including how to increase applications, enrollment yield, student retention and alumni engagement.

Case Studies

SU Athletics

Syracuse University (SU) Athletics​ wanted to understand what their​ current season ticket holders and​ single game ticket purchasers looked​ like. While they had an idea that their​ primary ticket base was an older male​ audience, they did not have data to​ prove that out. And if their primary​ market was this
group, where are​ additional audiences to target to​ replace this base as they age out?​

AMNY Education analyzed the clients ticket purchasing records to uncover untapped geographic, demographic and interest data points. From there, audience segments were built and custom creative developed to speak to each of these audiences. Creative spoke to key factors that motivated an
audience to purchase tickets.

SU Athletics exceeded previous football ticket sales for four consecutive years.

Michigan State University

In our work with Michigan State University, we learned that their Master of Marketing Research program was seeking an extremely specific audience. Their prime candidates were 26 years of age or older, already in relevant marketing or research fields, and had a 3-3.5 GPA while in school and/or five
years of work experience. The program needed to attract students earlier, in order to allow time for inquiry, application, and enrollment in accordance with established timelines.

In particular, the program desired to improve the quality of the applicant while improving the number of those applicants admitted and ultimately, enrolled.

Our team of strategists took a layered approach to attract a high quality audience – moving them from research to applicant. Social Media, Advanced Audience Targeting, Search Engine Marketing and Landing Page development drove success for this campaign.

This campaign moved 57% of candidates that started the application sequence online to complete it. Of those, 92% were admitted and 70% enrolled. All this together offered evidence of an improved candidate quality, due to the significant admission and enrollment rates.

University of South Alabama College of Nursing

University of South Alabama’s College of Nursing has about 4,000 students, working in classrooms and labs in Mobile and through online programs from all areas of the country. USA CON has educated nearly 14,000 nursing professionals who provide quality healthcare around the world.

In Spring of Year 4, USA College of Nursing partnered with Alabama Media Group with the goal of boosting awareness, consideration and increasing the number of applications for their online BSN program.
