We have more than 25 years of combined online marketing experience, and we are eager to help your school not just meet but exceed its enrollment goals.

We want to work together with you to achieve your marketing goals. These could include:

“I am extremely pleased with Sixth City Marketing, the college’s website traffic has increased substantially along with a significant increase in the quality of our admission leads. Plus, within a short period of time Sixth City’s SEO efforts have catapulted our Google rankings taking us from a buried page to top listings on Google. Sixth City has made a significant difference in the business college’s rankings and admissions.” – Michelle Parrish Manning, Kent State University College of Business Administration, Director Marketing and Communications

How We Achieve Your Goals

  • We create a unique strategy to match your campaign priorities. No cookie-cutter approaches here.
  • We have the luxury of offering high-quality service and attention to detail that larger, more detached agencies cannot.
  • We don’t take shady shortcuts that could improve rank superficially but harm your long-term success.
  • We have an in-house staff of writers and strategists.
  • We offer a varied portfolio of services to help your site’s conversion rate (design for conversion, video, social media) that we can work into a retainer agreement.

How Do We Show Results?

We show our results through:

  1. Increases in overall leads (both online and phone) which are tracked through Google Analytics
  2. Traffic improvement (overall, from search engines and from paid channels) in Google Analytics
  3. Boosting of keyword positions (in SEO campaigns)
  4. Decreases in cost-per-lead metrics (in paid campaigns)

The synergy of these factors combined is critical in gauging the effectiveness of an overall campaign. We evaluate each metric using industry-standard platforms.
