Mission-critical partner for enrollment growth

Our partnership with Direct Development has been key in building out a strategic and effective marketing system that generates new leads, nurtures existing leads, and builds our brand reputation. While many schools are seeing enrollment declines, we've seen our falling enrollment turn around this year and reach record numbers. Unlike many agencies I've worked with in the past who promise big results and then offer traditional marketing excuses for why they weren't achieved, DD is goal oriented and constantly making real-time adjustments to systems and campaigns to meet our goals. They are highly responsive, always available for a quick project, stay on target when we get too busy to work on projects, and go above and beyond on projects. They are able to build systems I envision but am usually told aren't possible by on-campus IT teams which have led to a super high-touch recruitment and enrollment process. I can't recommend DD highly enough!

Fantastic Experience

We have been working with Direct Development for the past 6 months on our Inbound Marketing efforts. The experience has been excellent, to say the least. Not only is the team knowledgeable in their respective areas, but they're also professional and proactive. Their enthusiasm for Inbound Marketing is infectious. We've already seen positive results in this short time frame and are excited for our continued success. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them at all. Thanks DD team!
