75% of respondents would engage with the university in some way



Driving reach with meaningful cut through amongst younger audiences can be difficult.

But with a significant chunk of younger audiences mobile gaming (74% of 18-24 year olds), the preferred format - in-game audio - enabled UWE to effectively reach prospective undergraduates. Our objectives were to deliver resonance of key messages, engagement, and drive open-day sign ups.

The campaign was a huge success, with our audience responding outstandingly to the ad across direct clicks and brand engagements.

 

In our brand uplift survey, 75% of respondents said they would engage by either looking at the website, speaking to a friend about the university, or attending an open day. The campaign also delivered uplift in association with UWE Bristol's key messaging (67%) and consideration to attend an open day (69%).

 

Here's what the client and agency had to say:

 

We are always looking for new, immersive ways to engage with prospective students and challenge SMRS to come up with campaign proposals that are interesting and innovative. The AudioMob activity generated a significant amount of clicks to our website, enabling us to engage with relevant audiences and helping us to deliver against our campaign targets.
