Digital marketing to students
Here at Wisetiger we work with a number of clients in the university student sector including CRM Students, Gradpad, CastleHill and Empiric Student Properties. Our work in this sector is focussed on increasing engagement and conversion of website visitors into student accommodation bookings. We’ve got a great track record of delivering successful digital marketing to students, so when we saw a survey of how students are using the web on smartphones we decided to share it with you.
What is bounce rate?
The bounce rate is the percentage of people who land on your website and immediately move away rather than continuing to interact with the content. This commonly occurs when a website visitor only views a single page and leaves or has a session timeout. This article is aimed at helping you understand the factors involved surrounding the metrics of the bounce rate and what can be done to monitor these attributes to improve engagement.
Wearable technology is increasing fast. With more than 485m devices expected to sell every year and a market worth $8.36bn by 2018 it’s an opportunity that Marketers can’t avoid. Wearables are widely predicted to be the most significant technology development since the smartphone, and their impact will be big. Here’s an overview of what wearable technology is and the opportunities that will present themselves to marketing teams in the next few years.
This will be the final version of my “Why Mobile in……” presentation. I’ve created one of these presentations, around this time of year, for the past 3 years to help explain why it was important to take “mobile” as a channel seriously. The presentations were designed to encourage our clients and to make the jump to a responsive design website sooner than later. I’m pleased to say that most of our clients have. You might find some of our web design case studies interesting, to see which ones have gone responsive and what results they’ve had. There are just a few of our clients that have been holding off for various reasons and this presentation is aimed at them. That said, this presentation makes interesting reading as you’ll find in it information that you won’t necessarily be aware of.
Online Travel Agencies (OTAs) like Expedia and Booking.com are responsible for a large proportion of online hotel room reservations but at the same time demand 10-15% in commission fees. Independent hotels are particularly OTA-dependent – on average, more than 42% of independent hotel rooms are reserved online but unfortunately, only 24% of these bookings come via the hotel website, while 76% percent are made through OTAs.
