Graduate and online student recruitment that is cohesive, collaborative, and continuous
To recruit today’s graduate and online students, you have to be immediately responsive, mobile, nimble, and relevant. You not only have to appear at the top of search rankings but deliver differentiators that convince a prospective student your program is the one for them. You have to engage the students you want through their mobile devices at every available opportunity.

RNL provides tech-enabled customizable and flexible conversion strategies
Your inquiries lead busy lives, and they research, apply, and enroll in a program much more quickly than traditional undergraduates. How and when you engage with them makes a huge difference. Powered by marketing automation, RNL uses a dynamic mix of channels designed to engage with students, assess their attitudes toward your institution, identify their specific needs, and engage them responsively to drive them to apply.
A strong pool of completed applications is often not enough to meet your enrollment goals. Cultivation and courting of individuals extends from first contact, to starting of application, to submission of application. We find the right mix of engaging messages and delivery solutions for you, developing a customized multimedia approach that leverages constant research on best practices to find the approach that’s optimized for your enrollment goals.
Maximizing yield means that recruitment and cultivation need to continue after a student is admitted—to avoid the kind of “melt” that undermines your enrollment and depresses your net revenue. RNL works with you to develop and deploy messaging and content designed to keep admitted students engaged and convey the value, convenience, and benefits of enrolling in your programs.
RNL deploys interactive, cloud-based dashboards that bring the most up-to-date KPI data to partners in easy to use and actionable formats. Vital insights from website analytics (Google Analytics, Google Tag Manager) and digital campaigns (Google AdWords, Facebook, LinkedIn) are seamlessly integrated with automated and regularly scheduled imports of data from media buys, which enables marketing reporting across all channels and across the recruitment cycle.
In addition to our dashboard, we have regular (weekly/bi-weekly) performance and strategy discussions to review campaign highlights, discuss recent insights and trends, provide an overview of recent optimization work, and discuss recommended or requested changes in strategy.
Collaboration that keeps your campus in control
In all that we do, RNL collaborates with your team to develop strategies that capture and reflect your brand identity, core messaging themes, and strategic institutional objectives. We leverage proven best practices in content, visuals, and user experience to increase conversions. Our team will also A/B test visuals, messaging, and other components to ensure we are continuously optimizing based on how audiences are engaging and converting. We want your team to gain knowledge with everything we do–it is part of our commitment to “radical transparency.”
