We believe in the power of education
Colling Media is a company that believes higher education changes lives. College, University, Community College, Career College, and Trade School education empowers, builds confidence and opens up opportunities. We are proud to partner with exceptional schools who are providing students with the ability to learn a new skill, expand their knowledge, and moves people towards realizing their dream. Our team is passionate about helping schools reach more people looking for education opportunities. We've spent years working with schools to grow student enrollment and student starts.
We understand admissions funnels
Our work in education marketing has provided us with a unique perspective on the admissions process. Although each school has a slightly different admissions process and may use different terms, most admissions funnels have common conversion points. Our team understands how to find these conversion points and how marketing can support them.
Admissions funnels reveal key data points for marketing directors to use when making campaign and messaging changes. Mapping admissions funnel conversion points allow marketing directors to see where help is needed most.
An advanced admissions funnel reveals:
- Admissions speed-to-lead metric(s)
- New Inquiry to Contacted %
- Contacted Inquiry to Interview Scheduled %
- Interview Show %
- Interview to Enroll %
- Enroll to Program Start %
- New Inquiry to Enrollment %
- Contacted Inquiry to Enrollment %
Education Marketing Solution
Colling Media has a proven education marketing strategy for student recruitment. Because enrollments lag behind marketing spend by weeks and many times lag behind by months, our education marketing plan expand to address three key areas for converting inquiries into enrollments: inquiry acquisition, inquiry nurturing, and inquiry conversion.
Our inquiry acquisition system drives what we call "branded leads" to your admissions teams. Branded leads are earned from our online/digital and offline marketing tactics and exclusive to your school. Colling Media is not a marketing affiliate who buys, sells, or shares inquiries with third parties.
For many inquiries, the decision to enroll and commit to an education program will be made later. For these inquiries, our nurturing system keeps your school top-of-mind and relevant when decision time comes. For inquiries who are in the decision stage, our marketing looks for these signals and delivers them back to your admissions team. Circling each area is comprehensive data analytics revealing direction for optimizing campaigns.
