University’s online degree program achieves one-year ROI with multi-channel marketing campaign.

In late spring of 2011, Arkansas Tech University began marketing its Accelerated Degree Program to offer those with at least 30 hours of college credit an affordable, completely online way to finish college and get a degree. The primary target audience for this effort was non-traditional students in Arkansas – adults with families and jobs who couldn’t afford to quit work and enroll in school full-time.

Arvest Bank finds quick success in two new markets.

Arvest Bank, a $12.5 billion bank operating in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri, expanded into the Springfield and Kansas City markets in 2008 and 2010, respectively.

As one of the top tourist destinations in the Mid-South, Fayetteville, Arkansas, knew that its online presence and marketing strategies were not keeping pace. With more than one-third of consumers now planning travel exclusively using online sources, the city had to more effectively drive traffic to its website and redesign the site to get travel planning resources in consumers' hands more effectively.

In 2012, The Sells Agency was engaged to redesign their website and create a new digital marketing plan.

University’s long-term branding efforts help achieve significant enrollment growth.

In 2003, Arkansas Tech University implemented a 10-year strategic plan. One of the five major goals of that plan was to improve and expand the geographic appeal of its brand among high school students and their parents throughout the state. The expected results included enrollment growth, higher-quality applicants and students, and higher graduation and retention rates.

About One Million Meals
In 2013, Arvest Bank conducted their third annual One Million Meals campaign, working with local partners to raise more than one million meals for people in need within the communities the bank serves. The campaign works to raise money, non-perishable food items, and hunger awareness both externally and internally. As part of our public relations work for Arvest, we planned and executed public relations tactics to support the One Million Meals campaign here in Central Arkansas .
