Milwaukee School of Engineering was looking for ways to transform their admissions experience to be more engaging and connect with a generation that lives on social media. We worked together with the team at 7Summits to develop a rich, web- based application tool that is tightly woven into a community platform for prospective students. The online community creates a space where students, parents, and counselors can share resources and engage in conversation. It also serves as a launch pad to the admissions process. Candidates are able to work through the integrated application system. An online dashboard is available for students to follow their application through the process, review accomplishments, and learn next steps as they progress towards the big decision.

Nightwatch

Nightwatch is a software company that provides SEO tools for a relatively saturated market. They are still working through their messaging and their clarity on their offer was missing at the point they started PPC. They knew they needed a presence as their buyer churn was slowly creeping and their acquisitions had leveled off.

Rise Bar

Rise Bar had been in business for about 11 years but growth had slowed after the first few years and eventually plateaud for the last 4-5 years. They were looking for a growth strategy to reinvigorate the brand and its sales.

Olivela

Please read the Process overview first.


Olivela went against the expert opinions of not only myself, but our paid social lead and their Facebook rep. They wanted to set up their ad sets in a very niche way by targeting each celebrity and their charity. For example, one ad set for Jennifer Anniston and one ad set for St. Jude. Not only did I struggle with targeting challenges, but creative issues as well. The celebrities and charity's representation were later seeing the creative live on their feeds and telling Olivela they were not approved, so I had to pause ads and/or launch new ones. The algorithm was consistently being reset almost on a daily basis due to unforeseen circumstances on Olivela's side.
