Search Influence’s Approach:

Given paid advertising is the most effective tactic to make an immediate impact on inquiries, we set out to maximize the efficiency of our paid advertising strategy.

We leveraged the knowledge of our dedicated digital advertising experts and the data from the prior year to inform the structured approach to deliver consistent, qualified inquiries:

  • Devise a new creative concept with unique illustrations to portray a distinct and recognizable theme
  • Increase conversion focus with strategic landing pages
  • Add touch points to the students’ journey by introducing Facebook Lead Generation & Google Smart Display campaigns
  • Reach new audiences by expanding geographic targeting to match new growth goals for specific programs

Result:

  • Exceeded original inquiry goal of 500 average monthly inquiries by 58%!
  • From January to August 2019, the average number of inquiry form submissions was 791.
  • Paid advertising drove 80% of inquiries in that period. 68% driven by Google Display & Smart Display. 25% driven by Facebook Lead Gen.

With innovative custom reporting, we were not only able to provide the client with lead source attribution, but also delivered a breakdown of how our strategy intelligently leveraged ad spend for a cost-effective return.
