Effective online banners
It comes as no surprise that (prospective) students spend the majority of their spare time online. What millennials and now Generation Y do online ranges from simply hanging out in social networks to actively researching and gathering information. This adds up to a huge amount of hours spend on the web. For many students, the virtual world belongs as much to their daily lives as their real tangible environment. Consequently, the study choice process has moved online as well.
Online student recruitment has therefore become an important task for many higher education institutions. Universities have to look continuously for ways to reach potential future students with their marketing campaigns. Reaching out to new potential students with the aim of creating brand awareness requires implementing certain online marketing tools like display advertising. Banners are part of any university marketing or college marketing campaign and serve quite an important role in every international student recruiter’s toolbox.
