I have worked with on a number of International HE recruitment campaigns for my clients seeking to target a mobile student audience across a number of different countries. In my opinion they are one of the best platforms available to access students who have actively decided to study outside of their country of origin. They offer a truly transparent and inclusive service and not only have they worked with us at Plattform to create totally bespoke pieces of inventory for our clients but they have supported us in all areas to ensure our campaigns deliver a quality response from those candidates most likely to convert.

Measuring the return on investment of our online marketing campaigns is key to our recruitment strategy. Only by defining and measuring key performance indicators can we determine the success of our campaigns. We not only focus on leads, as we found that data for leads can be flawed. We know for a fact that students tend to use a different email address in their application procedure, which makes it hard to guarantee a 100% match. Looking at referral traffic, we've seen positive results with By looking at conversions and multi-channel funnels in Google Analytics and taking into account applicant-to-student ratio's, we're able to calculate cost-per-applicant and cost-per-enrollment.
