Westwood College Expands Partnership With Integrated Marketing Firm

CHICAGO, Ill. (PRWEB) March 30, 2015

Westwood College has expanded its marketing partnership with PlattForm, a firm specializing in enrollment marketing, program management and career preparation for colleges and universities worldwide.

The expanded, full-service partnership represents an emphasis on integrated marketing and inquiry nurturing. We had several different agencies working on different parts of our marketing efforts, and we really wanted one to be responsible for managing our entire marketing mix, analyzing impacts across media channels and making budget shifts as necessary, said Rick Yaconis, president and chief marketing officer for Westwood College. PlattForm provides us those capabilities combined with education-specific expertise and knowledge about how the market is evolving.

Prior to this integrated marketing partnership, Westwood used PlattForm for branding, creative execution and traditional media placement. This enhanced partnership allows us to further extend the brand work that weve done for Westwood into new media channels and use those channels together for a greater impact on prospective students and a larger degree of accountability to Westwood, said Stephen Rentschler, Westwoods managing director at PlattForm.

An integrated marketing mix aligns traditional and digital channels like TV, pay-per-click (PPC), social media, search engine optimization (SEO) and email nurturing for better performance and optimization opportunities than any one media channel provides in isolation.
