Focussing on prospective students - how we used focus groups to create our recruitment campaign film.

Focussing on prospective students – how we used focus groups to create our recruitment campaign film.

No one knows what students want better than the prospective students themselves. In the past we have used  advertising companies to formulate ideas and create content, but now we have tried a new strategy.

Using focus groups made up of prospective students, we take the ideas for the content to the film production company for them to develop and produce into a campaign film.

Film is an excellent tool for executing an integrated communications strategy in digital media, why is it so successful?
