“AdRoll helps us promote our programs and see results right away. Other platforms we’ve tried don’t deliver results until the following semester, when it’s too late.

AdRoll helps UMSL fill digital classrooms
University of Missouri–St. Louis combined Prospecting and Retargeting tools to drive registration for their new online businessdegree program.
Prospecting finds UMSL’s future grads
University of Missouri–St. Louis (UMSL) launched an online business-degree program and needed help recruiting new students. To generate leads, UMSL used a combination of media strategies: email, audio, and video, plus AdRoll Prospecting and Retargeting for display. “Prospecting is critical when introducing a new program,” explains Jon Hinderliter, assistant director of University Marketing and Communications at UMSL. “We weren’t seeing performance in other channels like search and needed a new way to make the market aware.” UMSL’s campaign generated a 0.371% click-through rate, and an engaged audience led to a website bounce rate that was 15% lower than industry average.
Retargeting leaves no student behind
UMSL builds their marketing campaigns holistically with a full-funnel approach. To source new recruiting leads, UMSL relies on Prospecting. When it’s time to re-engage potential students and fuel customer relationship management (CRM), that’s where Retargeting shines. “With Prospecting and Retargeting, AdRoll has become a one-stop shop for our display advertising,” says Hinderliter. “With lead-gen programs, we can’t expect everyone to convert right away,” he continues. “We use Retargeting to convert. No one should run a digital campaign without retargeting.”
