the objectives

The challenge initially faced with NIMA was building a digital footprint for a brand new organization that had no reputation online, as well a generating leads/enrollments without a database of previous students. This meant creating an SEO strategy from scratch, researching and choosing a targeted keyword list with very little data, ensuring both on page and back-end content was search engine compliant and working to establish their rankings locally without a solid digital foundation.

Controlled growth was also a factor, to ensure that NIMA could cope with the number of enrollments generated, in accordance with their class sizes and number of classes available annually.

Initial Goals:

  • Generate leads/enrollments.
  • Create brand awareness.
  • Develop a solid digital footprint.
  • Dominate the local market and expand into National market.
  • Generate revenue to further expansion and ongoing marketing efforts.
