Behavioral Intelligence Platform: ENGAGE
Identify students. Reduce your marketing spend per student. Increase enrollment.
Why ENGAGE Matters
Not only does ENGAGE identify prospective students who are unavailable from any list buy, the software reduces the interaction time with prospects by serving personalized content. ENGAGE also measures every interaction, at every stage of the enrollment journey, whether it be through digital advertising, emails, paid social prospecting or other outreach methods.
Solutions for Today’s Enrollment Leaders
Capture’s comprehensive Daily Visitor Report (DVR), featuring all website recent activity from the past 24 hours, gives you the power to prioritize highly engaged prospective students.

ENGAGE captures two types of stealth prospects: Organic Prospects and Affinity Prospects.
Identified site visitors who have completed and submitted behavioral-based Progressive Identification (PID) form.
Behaviorally identified visitors with an Affinity Index that makes them similar to “traditional” inquiries and just as likely to apply.
Capture’s Engagement Score uses a proprietary algorithm that calculates each visitors level of interest, from 0-100, over a period of time. The Engagement Score gives you the ability to execute agile communications strategies when the visitor is most engaged with your website.
Any visitor with an applicant status or beyond that indicates a high Engagement Score should be followed up with immediately.
Capture’s Affinity Index uses a proprietary algorithm to produce a real-time score based on a cumulative prospect engagement level on your website since the moment of identification in ENGAGE. Capture’s Affinity Index will help you to:
- Segment students for recruitment or yield efforts, data analytics, predictive modeling or communications.
- Prioritize Inquiry and Applicant outreach communications.
- Determine which non-deposited students may be wavering on whether or not to attend.
Capture’s Counselor Alerts provide instant notification to your admissions team when identified visitors are on your website. Messages can be specified by territory and provide a relevant and timely way for your team to assist prospective students in the next steps of the recruitment process.
Email Address Targeting
Digital ads are targeted to devices based on an individual’s email address. These ads are distributed across traditional ad networks or to specific social ad networks such as Facebook and Instagram.
Household IP Targeting
IP algorithm that determines the IP address based on a physical address, then used for precise ad targeting to any connected device in that household.
Capture’s GEO-IP targeting helps you to target your marketing to specific geographical regions by serving ads to anyone browsing on networks within the defined area.
Industry-leading ad networks are used to deliver digital ads to previous site visitors. Website Retargeted ads will be displayed to your site abandoner as he or she browses the internet. The messages of the ads are custom designed reflect the moment of engagement, your institution’s tone and voice and keep your brand in front of bounced traffic.
Social Retargeting ads are more socially focused and are displayed within the Facebook and Instagram ad networks. Social Retargeting also targets previous site visitors by serving relevant and timely ads. Increase your reach with refined messaging that speaks directly to socially engaged potential students, their parents and friends after they have left your site.
The power of the Behavioral Intelligence Platform’s real-time data gives you insights into where prospective students are in the enrollment decision process. With this information, you are able to deploy a dynamic, behavioral-based email strategy that delivers the right message at the right time.

Connecting Over The Great Outdoors
From no response to commitment in one highly relevant email.
A Carson-Newman admissions counselor, Spenser Smith, had been trying to get in touch with a prospective student for several weeks. He wrote emails and sent texts. He made calls and mailed printed materials … all with no response.
Then Carson-Newman partnered with Capture and began to use ENGAGE, marketing automation built specifically for colleges and universities. That’s when Spenser identified a better strategy for communicating with the student.
