Recruiting Graduate Students Based on Interactions and Engagement

Did you know 75% of potential graduate students bypass traditional marketing attempts and go directly online? This creates challenges for both identifying and engaging with prospects who have already experienced the enrollment process as an undergrad. With under-performing search strategies and underfunded efforts, graduate recruitment teams require more time and resources than are typically available to successfully bring in their graduate prospects.

The good news is most colleges and universities have enough prospective graduate students visiting their websites to meet their enrollment goals. And these prospects are engaging actively with these institutions right now!

That’s why it is crucial for graduate enrollment offices to create personalized and relevant content through a variety of channels that target these potential students based on their interactions and engagement.
