Data-based & Performance Driven

The digital marketing solutions we offer our partners are based on research and industry best practices, and the results we achieve are carefully tracked and measured using the latest data-gathering tools, such as Google Analytics.

HEM offers total transparency with regard to how well each digital marketing initiative is performing. We share performance reports and walk clients through each detail to promote full disclosure and understanding.

Commitment to Partnership & Customization

HEM recognizes that each educational institution has its own unique identity, target audiences, and recruitment goals. Our methodology is rooted in developing a nuanced understanding of each partner school’s brand and student community.

We work closely with our partners to ensure that strategies and tactics are uniformly aligned with the character of the school and the behaviors of its audience - which is what helps us create truly customized and effective recruitment solutions. We do not believe in one-size-fits-all marketing.
