Sample Case Study


In the early 2010s, Holy Family University in Philadelphia was facing a significant problem with many of their programs underperforming due to lack of student occupancy. This was a problem that affected both graduate and undergraduate programs. Enrollment numbers were down, and with fewer students, the University was unable to fully utilize its vast resources. The university recognized a need for a robust marketing strategy to attract students and fill its programs.


Paul Mosenson of NuSpark Media was brought in to revamp the marketing strategy in 2014. Leveraging his expertise as a Fractional CMO and a results-focused Marketing Consultant, Paul designed a comprehensive, targeted, and cost-effective media buy strategy. He employed a multi-faceted approach that included:

  • Redesigning Google paid search campaigns to attract potential students actively seeking education opportunities.
  • Geofencing high schools to serve targeted ads to potential undergraduate students in their areas of interest.
  • Utilizing Facebook, Instagram, and Snapchat for targeted ads aimed at both graduate and undergraduate prospects.
  • Deploying online display, native advertising, and retargeting to keep Holy Family University on top of prospects’ minds.
  • Leveraging Direct Response TV, OTT, streaming radio, and online radio to reach a broader audience.
  • Implementing robust tracking measures including vanity URLs, text messaging, and dedicated phone numbers to accurately measure campaign effectiveness.


The strategic and tactical approach undertaken by Paul brought forth considerable positive change. Here are some key results:

  • The Google paid search campaign redesign resulted in a 45% increase in click-through rates and a 30% boost in conversions, leading to a significant uptick in student inquiries and applications.
  • Geofencing high schools led to a 35% increase in undergraduate inquiries within the geofenced areas, signifying a more focused interest from potential students.
  • The comprehensive social media campaign saw a 40% rise in engagement rates and a 20% increase in completed applications from targeted prospects.
  • Retargeting efforts on display and native advertising platforms increased overall brand visibility by 60% and boosted online inquiries by 25%.
  • The usage of Direct Response TV, OTT, streaming radio, and online radio resulted in a 15% increase in awareness among potential students outside the traditional digital platforms.
  • The robust tracking measures implemented enabled the University to fine-tune their campaigns, resulting in an overall decrease in cost per acquisition by 30%.
  • By the end of 2020, Paul’s strategic media plans had successfully increased online enrollment by 40% and overall awareness of Holy Family University’s programs by 60%. This signified a substantial recovery from the earlier underperformance and positioned the university as a competitive option for both graduate and undergraduate students.

This case study showcases Paul Mosenson’s strategic and tactical prowess in delivering results that drive growth and success. His ability to leverage various digital platforms in a cohesive, targeted, and cost-effective manner made a significant difference in reversing the underperformance of Holy Family University’s programs.
