Over 12+ years of results-driven collaboration!

I've had the pleasure of working with the Direct Development team for over 12 years. I recently changed institutions and reached out to Direct Development within weeks on the new job to collaborate with them again. I know I can count on them to be responsive and to help with smart strategic planning. I can't imagine not working with them!

Great Virtual Workshop

Zach Busekrus and Tony Fraga gave a virtual workshop for our school last month on Inbound Graduate Enrollment marketing and it was fantastic. It was initially planned as an in-person workshop, but when the new distancing restrictions were implemented, they quickly pivoted to be able to offer a virtual alternative. The workshop went off flawlessly. These guys are completely at ease with the technology and the virtual experience was very high quality. Prior to the workshop, Zach and Tony took great care to learn about our institutional structure and our goals for the workshop. It is rare to find marketing consultants with their understanding of higher education, and graduate education and marketing specifically. In the thoughtfully tailored, highly engaging, and enjoyable workshop, they delivered takeaways that we could immediately implement and practical tools to create a strategic path forward. I very much look forward to partnering with them again.

Utmost respect for the DD team from a peer

I run a HubSpot agency in New York so we know what a great shop looks like. Recently we had two prospects in categories that aren't a good fit for us (Higher Ed and Non-Profit) so we recommended Direct Development. I cannot offer high enough praise to Tony, Zach and the DD team for their professionalism.

An Extension of Our Team

We have been working with Direct Development for the last nine months and they have been phenomenal. They have become an extension of our team and really gone above and beyond. They are a group of highly skilled and motivated individuals that are results-driven and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. Whenever we run into an issue, it is never a roadblock but becomes an opportunity. I have truly loved learning and working with this group of inbound experts. I look forward to seeing our admissions numbers continue to rise working with this team.
