Clearing the Path for USW Students with Digital Advertising

Whilst the word ‘Clearing’ might not mean much to the vast majority of the public, it’s one that is vitally important for many sixth-form students across the UK.

Indeed, if students don’t achieve the A-Level grades they need to be accepted to their chosen university, Clearing offers a lifeline and so is an important day for many Higher Education institutions, including our client, the University of South Wales.

Wanting to take full advantage of digital advertising’s capabilities on Clearing day, USW approached us to help them attract students through Google AdWords and Facebook.

Beginning with an in-depth audit, our digital team restructured the client’s existing account, before multiple strategy meetings with USW helped finalise budgets, approve ad copy and determine logistics.

On the day itself – proving why we’ve been ranked #1 for client satisfaction three years running – our S3 digital gurus were onsite with USW’s marketing department, benefitting from direct call centre access while providing senior management with real-time updates.

Thanks to this hands-on approach, we received numerous plaudits from the client while increasing impression share (USW’s online market share) by 40%.

Proving yet again that when it’s digital you want, it’s S3 you need.

“S3 Advertising have been so easy to work with and nothing is too much trouble. Within a few short months they already felt part of our team! Their in-depth knowledge of digital and the ability to understand, optimise and produce high quality campaigns and reports are particularly impressive.”

– Matt Hayes, Marketing Executive, University of South Wales
