Digital Marketing for Your Canadian Higher Education Business

For Canadian higher education institutions that want to attract the right students at the right time, making a great first—and second and third—impression is key. However, competition can be intense and prospective students don’t want a one-size-fits-all education. They want personalized attention—and it all begins with tailored marketing and outreach solutions. DAC appreciates the value of targeted marketing, and our integrated digital approach will help you connect with the right students at all stages of their journey, from research to enrolment. Today’s multi-touch, multi-device students naturally expect their schools to keep up with them, which means generic messaging just isn’t going to cut it anymore (if it ever did in the first place). Fortunately, DAC’s “Geeks with Personality” are happy to help. Get in touch with us today to learn more about how we can help your higher education institution drive impressive results.
