The Study in the USA Video Hub
We’re excited to announce the launch of the Study in the USA video hub site. It’s an amazing repository and resource, full of videos from current international students, recordings of our popular Student Sessions on Facebook and Instagram Live, plus introductory videos to many U.S. colleges and programs. Considering that Gen Z streams video for roughly 23 hours each week, the importance of video cannot be understated. Video is the future of marketing, and Study in the USA is pleased to offer this resource for students and schools.

Creating a Strategic Outreach Plan Now
Ameliorating our global reputation is going to be our work in the coming years. Convincing the global international student population that the U.S. continues to be the destination for higher education will be our number one priority.
What this means for recruitment is strategic planning. How are you planning for 2021 and even further into 2022 and 2023? How are you going to get in front of students and reassure them that despite the last 4 years, they are more than welcome here?

Smart Match: Better Quality Leads
With our new Smart Match feature, all you have to do is fill out 9 items, and you’re on your way to higher-quality leads. On a dating app, the more information you fill out about your likes and dislikes, etc., the better “matches” are made for you. It’s the same with our Smart Match system. You start with a large pool of leads (quantity!), and the more information you give us about the matches you’d like to see — for example, students from specific countries or with certain test scores — we’ll be able to provide better leads for your school (quality!).
Think of it this way, you’re not losing quantity and are gaining in quality — with the goal of ultimately improving your conversion rate. It’s a win-win!

Increased Exposure for Print Magazines!
We just sent the 2021 Chinese magazine to the printer and are excited that it’s reaching an additional 750 new international schools this year! Plus, the magazine will receive more than 100,000 extra views per month on four popular Chinese digital reading platforms.
Additionally, the India edition, which goes to the printer next week, also has an increase in its reader base — now 110,000 subscribers. As a result of our valued partnership with Careers360, 40,000 more students will see the magazine than initially planned!
We’re delighted to provide these increased readership numbers for our clients with print ads in these editions.
It’s never too early to plan for next year’s print editions!

Now vs. In 6 Months
Yes, we are in challenging times. But doing nothing with your digital marketing for the next 6 months won’t move you forward — and you don’t want to miss out on what's happening now! Last month, we received more than 8,000 student inquiries. Waiting 6 months puts you behind hundreds of other schools who are out there gaining trust and who for the last 6 months have been acquiring leads to fill their pipeline and conversions. Use this time to continue to build brand awareness. Our goal is for your investment to create results you can see now and in the future!
