Social Media Marketing
Targeted to RNs/LPNs on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn who might have an interest in earning their BSN.
AMG launched a search engine marketing campaign across the top search engines: Google, Bing, and Yahoo! to increase visibility in search results for active seekers for BSN/MSN programs.
AMG tracked performance indicators such as goal completions, session duration and overall quality of site traffic and optimized the campaign accordingly.

Six blogs were created, posted and promoted in order to educate readers and boost USA College of Nursing’s message to potential applicants:
