Multichannel Marketing Drives Results Throughout the Candidate Journey

Birch University, a Medium-Sized, Private University in the Northeast


Birch University is a private university in a large city in the Northeast.

The Challenge

Faced with increased local and national competition, Birch’s adult degree completer program struggled to maintain enrollment volume for several years due to insufficient awareness and engagement among key prospect audiences.

The Solution

Birch partnered with EAB to identify audiences who would be most likely to enroll, and to raise awareness among these populations as a part of the overall marketing and recruitment strategy. EAB used consumer data to create detailed personas of Birch’s target students and generate high-affinity prospects to target. EAB then launched multichannel campaigns to engage candidates and encourage applications.

The Results

EAB’s digital ad campaigns generated awareness by reaching over 65,000 unique prospects within Birch’s target audience. Down-funnel, multichannel campaigns spurred substantial engagement and application activity, influencing 22 enrollments for Birch’s adult degree completer program.
