Secret Shopping Research for Higher Education

Every year, your college or university invests thousands of dollars in advertising, list purchases, travel, and direct mail – all for a singular purpose – to find prospective students and to encourage them to contact you. Yet, what really happens when they do?

Managing ‘Moments of Truth’ with the People that Matter Most

We call it Touchpoint Management – the institutional contact points where prospective students and their influencers experience your brand. Intentionally managing these touchpoints can improve your enrollment marketing return-on-investment (ROI).
