Digital Marketing Audit

Still Have Questions?

While we have substantial experience working with colleges, universities, schools, and departments, we also partner with a range of other businesses and organizations. 

Each of our clients are unique, but they’re all trying to connect, engage, and convert audiences through experiences that typically begin online. 

This focus enables us to build deep expertise. It also empowers our team of marketing specialists to supplement their knowledge with fresh thinking and insights pulled from other clients and industries.

In other words, our clients benefit from the depth and breadth of our experience, which is something other higher education marketing agencies can’t provide.

To see examples of our client successes across multiple industries, explore our work section.

For higher education clients, we utilize a variety of digital ad channels, focusing heavily on the following options:

  • Google Search/Display
  • YouTube
  • Facebook/Instagram
  • Snapchat
  • TikTok
  • Spotify
  • LinkedIn
  • Additional Programmatic Display/Audio Options

Ultimately, we select the channels and platforms that make the most sense based on a client’s goals, target audiences, and budget. 

We do. Some institutions have internal ad management resources, but they need an outside expert perspective to help them optimize their campaigns. For these teams, our audit can help identify gaps and opportunities in an existing digital advertising strategy.

We can also conduct an audit first as a way of sharing our thinking and building a relationship. We understand that digital marketing is a significant investment, and we want you to feel comfortable when partnering with us.

If you’re interested in a stand-alone audit, let us know in the form below.

Absolutely. While our team provides comprehensive digital advertising management services for several of our clients, we’re also happy to collaborate with other teams, partners, or agencies, when necessary.

Our goal is to make our clients successful. As long as we have open lines of communication and a shared vision, we’re happy to work with anyone who can help our clients achieve their goals.

During our digital strategy onboarding process, we develop a marketing measurement framework that includes SMART goals, KPIs, campaign projections, and much more.

Based on this framework, we then build out a performance dashboard that connects to Google Analytics (including GA4) and all of the other relevant digital advertising platforms.

This dashboard serves as the centerpiece for our reporting meetings, in which we review campaign performance, share insights, and map out recommendations. We tailor these dashboards to highlight the things that are most important to our clients, and we use them as a launch point for strategic changes or refinements.

We typically review performance with our clients on a monthly or bi-monthly schedule, but the specific cadence depends on our clients’ goals and preferences.
