“They did a great job of honing effective messaging based on our mutual understanding of Muhlenberg’s strengths.”

Dean of Admissions

Our Solution

KDG managed the entire email campaign from start to finish creating compelling copy and design for all seven emails in the series.

A Student-Focused Campaign

“They were right there with us providing advice and perspective every step of the way.”
Chris Hooker-Haring
Dean of Admissions

KDG delivered an email campaign that spoke to upcoming high school seniors in a conversational, yet informative tone about the topics they cared about most. Over the course of seven weeks, emails were auto distributed on a weekly basis to a robust list of more than 50,000 prospective applicants. Each email was responsive when read on smartphones, ensuring that every student got a tailored email that was easily viewable. When they went to one of the College’s landing pages, the same responsive technology helped ensure that the entire experience was seamless from start to finish. While each email in the series was distributed to students on a weekly basis, view, click, and action data was being fed to KDG on a real-time basis allowing each lead to be scored based on their likely interest level. This meant higher quality leads for Muhlenberg and less wasted time with uninterested students.
