Have you ever wondered how your digital marketing budget compares to that of your peer institutions? Your competitors? Are you curious about how to best structure your marketing and communications office to keep up with an evolving digital landscape?

In our white paper, “Benchmarking Digital Marketing in Higher Education,” we explore how colleges and universities organize themselves for digital marketing, who executes the work, how they fund it, and how they use various platforms. According to this research, approximately 80% of higher ed institutions have a budget for digital marketing — but how are they using it, and more importantly, what’s working?

In this hourlong, live webinar, we share key findings from the white paper and walk through two institutional examples of advanced digital marketing strategies.

You’ll learn:

  • The size of institutions’ digital marketing budgets.
  • Institutional digital marketing goals and methods.
  • How institutions are using social media for digital marketing.
  • How WVU implements a holistic approach to their digital marketing campaigns
  • How Univerisity North Dakota uses TikTok to strategically market themselves.
