Our strategy focused on finding target onshore international students interested in specific study areas.

How did we do it?

The Social Garden team, led by Account Director, Rosie Brown, and Bendigo Kangan Institute worked closely to produce User-Generated Video Content using international students to align the campaign with their objective to increase student recruitment and target the onshore international student pool.

Our strategy focused on finding target onshore international students interested in specific study areas.

This meant building qualified audiences from 1st party data and using lookalike audiences to ensure that potential onshore international students received lead generation ads to guide them to registration.

Working closely to understand the different target audiences, we discovered that targeting prospects who spoke specific international languages, lived in Melbourne or Bendigo and also fit into our target age range was shown to have the greatest level of engagement and conversion rate.
