Using Pinterest in Your Marketing Plan
Are you using Pinterest in your social media strategy? If not, you should! Unlike other sites, where your content can be buried within minutes of posting, content on Pinterest is continually repinned and reshared. Also, unlike other social media sites, Pinterest is as much a search engine as a social media platform, meaning your content continues to generate views and funnel students to your site, months after it was originally posted.
Study in the USA’s Pinterest board has 16,000 pins and receives 20,000 visits a month, 75% of which are from international students. In the last month, students from India, Brazil, and Germany were the top three countries searching our boards. Recently, a Pinterest campaign we ran for Moravian College received 1,700 views within its first week — and that number will keep growing as the post is repinned and reshared!

The global pandemic, ICE determinations and retractions, budget cuts — the painful list of 2020 realities is a long one. But at Study in the USA we are taking the long view and planning for a time when we have moved through this challenging time. Because there are young international students who are planning for this future too, even if their international education journey is just a wisp of a dream in their mind.
The typical student journey is a long one, with planning in most cases beginning 18 to 24 months out. By continuing to invest in marketing to those students, you can meet them at the beginning of their journey, so that in another year or two they will be your students, attending your school or program.

“I read the information found on StudyUSA.com and it helped me understand the process of applying in the USA. I have also talked to a StudyUSA counselor, and she helped me with the things I struggle with like my essay for college application. StudyUSA gave me the information I needed.” —Anais Gardere
