Thoughtful, precise keyword and regional targeting helped Champlain use Google and Bing to reach only the prospects that were most likely to convert.
Geofencing high-traffic areas — airports, movie theaters — in their target markets raised brand awareness where it mattered most and reinforced out-of-home advertising.
Social efforts included lead generation using unique downloads as well as website retargeting, which both deliver Champlain’s message to specific prospect pools.
Optimizing the Website for Conversion
Following the launch of paid campaigns, we partnered with the internal team to reimagine and fully redesign the Champlain College Online website to produce leads from direct and organic traffic and to nurture prospects already touched by paid media. We combined new brand messages developed by the marketing team with an information architecture and visual design grounded in the customer journey of adult learners.
Degree program pages are the core of the site and a primary destination for prospects. To meet the user's prioritized needs, we assembled a program page that brings all of the relevant content together in one location – requirements, courses, outcomes, testimonials, and affordability messages. Embedded calls to action with upcoming deadlines add a sense of urgency and transform informational pages into lead generation pages.
Amplifying Blog Articles
With the marketing team already successfully executing on a blog strategy, we extended the reach of this asset by more elegantly integrating the articles into program content and highlighting program offers within the blog. With our monthly search engine optimization (SEO) memos, we helped Champlain College Online's editorial team find new topics to drive more traffic at the top of the enrollment funnel.
