Southern New Hampshire University

Integrated Multi-channel Student Acquisition Campaign


Southern New Hampshire University wanted to engage with high school Juniors. The objective was to develop an integrated multi-channel marketing approach to shape the student portfolio. The main goals for the campaign were to generate student interest, create awareness for on-campus events, get students to opt-in and hyper-target key student segments. The main hurdle was targeting students who had been non-responsive to the school's previous direct and email efforts.


Digital Wavefront developed and managed a multi-channel campaign that involved web, email and social. A microsite with PURLs enabled personalization of content based on 6 personas that targeted male & female students. Personalization was extended to deliver custom resource links generated based on the students' preferences and interests. 3 targeted email campaigns were designed and orchestrated to coincide with specific on-campus and off-campus events. The 3rd component of the campaign involved designing and managing Facebook Ads driving students to the online experience.
