Lead Generation

What would a 20% lead to application rate mean for your institution?

We consider many important factors when developing and maintaining an institution’s site for enrollment marketing purposes.

Research

Keyword and competitive research and insight from SEM activity

Content

The single biggest factor in SEO rankings with search engines

Social Media & In-Bound links

Link quality and quantity are two of the most critical components to a well-optimized site.

Page Optimization

Built to maximize SEO scores to ensure your site ranks higher in organic search results for the terms that we target, driving more qualified prospects to your site.
}

Timeframe

SEO can take months to build by itself, but performance can be increased more quickly in conjunction with SEM activities

Our process is completely transparent and will always involve your key stakeholders. We work closely with you from discovery to program launch. We also provide detailed marketing reports and dashboards to track and evaluate our success together.

Pay-Per-Click

The top 3 paid ad spots get 46% of the clicks on the page.

Only 1% of people go to the second page of search results.

Paid ads that exactly match searcher intent have twice as many chances to be seen and are eight times more likely to be clicked.

Search Engine Optimization

Any marketing firm can generate more leads. The key in online higher education is to generate high-quality, low-cost leads.

Social Media

Emerge utilizes a variety of social media channels to connect with students and will tailor the messaging to best serve your institution.

Market Research

DEGREE DEMAND

Emerge compiles and analyzes the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) data for the past five years to determine the number of degrees conferred and degree growth at both the national and regional levels. Top producers in each degree category will be identified and their programs will be analyzed to identify their competitive advantages.

SEARCH VOLUME

We compile and analyze the average monthly search volume in Google for keywords related to each program. This analysis will determine the level of demand by prospective students as well as prominent search terms and nomenclature used by the target audience.

OCCUPATIONAL DEMAND

We compile occupational sets from the Bureau of Labor Statistics for each degree program to include the following: employment levels, projected occupational growth, median salaries, educational attainment, job titles, skills, and employers, where possible, at both the national and regional levels.

COMPETITOR LANDSCAPE

We develop a list of up to 20 competitor institutions that offer online programs comparable to your selected programs. Emerge will compile data for each program to include degree title, specializations, program length, cost, professional accreditation, prerequisite requirements, and admission requirements.

IDENTIFICATION OF FUTURE ONLINE PROGRAM OPPORTUNITIES

We utilize existing research on high-potential programs to identify future online program opportunities for your institution, which will be prioritized based on the strength of each opportunity.
