We know how it is in higher education. Lots of cooks. Lots of bland soup. And then there’s Legal. It’s no wonder so many schools end up sticking with the status quo rather than swimming upstream when it comes to marketing. MSM is here to change all that – painlessly.
An alumni marketing agency built from years of higher ed experience, MSM specializes in effective campaigns that span the digital spectrum including social, mobile, and the web at large.
We also have extensive practice navigating the institutional processes and engrained attitudes that may be holding back your marketing. Let us show you how to get real results your VP will love.
It’s true: Change isn’t always easy. We understand that rethinking the way you market your organization can be difficult to absorb into your busy day. That’s why we’ll move as fast or as slow as you’d like. We aim to deliver fantastic results while keeping your team’s time commitment (and stress level) to a bare minimum.
Marketing research is a part of our daily process at MSM. As an alumni marketing agency, we are constantly seeking new strategies and opportunities to help schools reach and connect with active and lost graduates.
When combined with our growing arsenal of best practices and proven campaign components, our marketing programs produce highly effective results that drive repeatable results. Being questioned about ROI? Our campaign results will make you the star of your next staff meeting.
We typically work with new clients in one of two ways – a single campaign surrounding a specific goal or yearly marketing management.
Our single campaign marketing programs are designed to meet a specific goal that fits within your organization’s marketing objectives. We’ll apply proven marketing research to produce optimal results, helping you accomplish your goals. Whether it’s getting graduating seniors to join the alumni association, finding and connecting lost alumni, generating buzz around homecoming, or another short-term project, we have fresh ideas that will make a mark.
MSM can also provide long-term solutions to help you make the most of social and mobile integration. We’ll conduct and apply marketing research relevant to your niche, fully analyze your strategy and give it the care and feeding it deserves.
