Well, I've no clue if this thing will gain any traction, but I am always looking for a place to discuss the web as a marketing tool in higher education, whether that be for prospective students, alumni or anyone in between.

How to implement a digital marketing strategy when people believe that digital strategy equals to Google Adwords campaign plus banners in every site they could paste them?

I've tried what Karen Summers said but they still want to use paper and tv instead of digital channels.

Anyone Have tried multichannel efficiency tracking to prove the value of digital strategies?

Hi. I maintain two websites : 1) Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology program and 2)a graduate level theological school. I am pretty much on my own as how to market these online. Am taking courses in web technologies at a tech institute in the Vancouver area. The business course in web design has helped me to create both a business plan and marketing plan for my websites. I've also learned how to do a cost-analysis for what I should be paid to create and maintain sites. The pay never matches the expectation.
I also do admissions and have been somewhat successful in keeping students coming. Am willing to share my marketing strategy with anyone who is interested.

Hi. Does anyone have any recommendations for a strong search engine marketing firm?

One really great way to show the value of using a website for marketing and recruitment of prospective students is to show a "cost per lead" analysis. Compare all traditional marketing costs (newspaper, TC, etc.) with the cost of inquiry through a website that has "natural" search engine results.

At my college we're averaging pennies per lead versus thousands for some of our traditional marketing campaigns. The office of enrollment management (me) owns and maintains this web presence.

I'd be happy to share how I got $90,000 for a new site in 2009.

PS- make you marketing plan based on your enrollment goals, then work back to see how many students you need to recruit to pay for the marketing, the rest you can use to buy beer for your team ;-)

I am looking for stats/info on making the case to the university admins that they have a very critical marketing tool that they are under-utilizing...doesn't anyone have stats/info on how the web has increased funding/admissions etc for universities?
