TURNING DATA INTO RESULTS FOR COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES REACHING THE MILITARY COMMUNITY
THEIR RECRUITING CHALLENGE
Understanding the challenges military spouses face in managing their career and education within the military lifestyle, a well-recognized Division 1 University desired to extend its program offering to the military spouse community by designing new flexibility and unique structures into their program that would highly benefit the transient realities of military life. Recognizing their lack of experience recruiting and targeting the military spouse demographic, the school sought experts at targeting and building campaigns focused on niches within the military community.

Lead Gen Funnel
Build a proper lead generation funnel with a measurable ROI
The NCAA Division 1 University had previously worked with branding components of VIQTORY’s extensive publication audience, and were intrigued by extending their partnership to include the design and execution of an end-to-end Managed Programmatic Advertising campaign to target the Military Spouse audience.
Given the short time-frame for program enrollment and recognizing VIQTORY’s decades of experience in military audience engagement, the University was rapidly able to authorize VIQTORY to develop the digital assets, messaging, and creative materials to be used throughout the Managed Programmatic Ad campaign.
A specific goal for the campaign identified was developing greater internal understanding of the core marketing KPIs such as current ad effectiveness, CTR, conversion rates, and how to build a proper lead generation funnel with a measurable ROI. VIQTORY’s expert and knowledgeable team provided ongoing high-touch support and education to improve the university’s internal capacities, which lead to gains in overall marketing effectiveness.

TURNING DATA INTO RESULTS
First-party data enables VIQTORY to focus with great precision on the audiences that matter most to their clients. But limitations of data-matching technology can create a gap between desired reach and available online targets.
VIQTORY works closely with partners to develop a strong message-to-market match with custom designed digital assets like banners, landing pages and unique content. While many clients often bring their own creative, VIQTORY’s internal creative team has 40 combined years of military- and veteran-specific design experience, which is critical to a successful campaign that hinges on delivering the right message at the right time to the right audience segment.
