How we helped KD College enhance their reputation and attract quality applicants

The Challenge

KD College is the only degree-granting conservatory outside of New York and Los Angeles for those seeking careers in the entertainment world. While KD College had plenty of visibility locally, its team knew they needed to attract more students nationwide. So they asked us to help them create and execute a comprehensive online marketing campaign with the goals of increasing qualified leads, gaining visibility for the conservatory, and growing the institution’s reputation.
