Our integrated marketing strategy for the University of Stirling increased brand awareness, drove solid leads and reduced cost per lead during the key application period.
Stirling faced fierce competition in the UK university market, relying heavily on education agents.
In a saturated market, the university needed to eclipse the competition with original marketing campaigns that maximised brand presence and drove direct applications for both undergraduate and postgraduate recruitment.
Emerging Comms created an end-to-end online strategy that showcased the university’s USPs and kept up with the changing trends and priorities of Chinese students and their parents.
Our strong partnership with the University of Stirling enabled us to plan and execute long-term strategic success with multi-channel touchpoints, targeting audience groups with sequential and cohesive communication at each application stage.
