FROM WHITEBOARDS TO BILLBOARDS AND BEYOND: Full-service advertising for your educational institution.

Full-service advertising for your educational institution.

Since 1987, we’ve worked with the education industry to increase enrollment, differentiate from the competition, educate the public on policies, foster beneficial relationships with the community and more. As a full-service marketing and advertising agency, we help educational institutions:

  1. Determine the overlying mission
  2. Identify and target coveted audiences
  3. Develop and implement campaign strategies
  4. Fulfill underlying goals and objectives
  5. Deliver quantifiable, qualitative and sustainable results

As partners of both public and private institutions, higher education holds a special place in our hearts. Working with Orlando’s hometown team, the University of Central Florida, we develop strong and long lasting ties between the university and the community. Private colleges such as Beacon College, allow us to focus our marketing skills on a select market in the education industry. We’ve even lent our experience to the whole of Orange County’s K-12 school system with an anti-bullying campaign that ran through 102 schools across the district.

Whether its reaching enrollment goals, raising public awareness of your institution or ensuring students have the information they need to succeed, we provide clients with every component necessary to meet their goals. Get schooled on all our capabilities.
