Generating traffic and leads are consistently highlighted as top challenges marketers face. When your entire business model lives online, that pressure is tenfold. If you can’t get eyes on your website, you don’t sell.
Apollo Education Group has been a thought leader in education for working students for more than 40 years. Its mission is to empower working learners and provide accessible and knowledgeable educational opportunities.
Apollo approached SoMe Connect to accomplish a specific goal: attract C-Suite decision makers and related influencers to engage, connect, and learn more about Apollo’s professional development programs.
After SoMe built the mechanism, the team drilled into the specifics which made good use of known influencers. “We introduced Apollo to discussions and within groups that had a rich audience of C-Suite individuals”, said Shah.
“We started running online ads in targeted niche and frequently read publications by C-Suite level decision makers both in professional development / training properties and mainstream publications such as the New York Times, Fortune, and Wall Street Journal. We then created a highly targeted LinkedIn search campaign and promoted content to create engagement and generate meaningful traffic, and last but not least, we designed and launched an online resource center with solution pages and thought leadership pieces to provide high-impact information and specific calls to action.”
