CHICAGO (November 27, 2013) – Members of the Collegis Education marketing team were recently named Best In-House Search Team as a result of their search marketing success with Rasmussen College in 2013. The award recognizes standout performance by an in-house agency and considers teams across all industries and throughout the country.

“We’ve always felt our team approaches search marketing in a fundamentally different way than anyone else,” said Josh Braaten, director of inbound marketing at Collegis Education. “Winning this award confirms that our process is uniquely different across all marketing verticals, not just higher education. The results are well above market averages, with blog traffic growth of 70 percent over the previous year and a 25 percent increase in web traffic across all key segments. The return on the College’s investment in search marketing says it all—15 percent more of their leads now result in new student enrollment.”

The award was presented to the team on October 23 in association with Pubcon, the largest interactive marketing conference in the country. The U.S. Search Awards are supported by SEMPO, the leading international, non-profit organization for the search and digital marketing profession.

“Technology is quickly changing how organizations operate and nowhere is that more true than in the higher education industry,” said Bob King, Collegis Education senior vice president. “Collegis Education was created to help colleges and universities not only navigate the changes, but thrive within them. It’s an honor for our team to be recognized for this expertise in such a high profile and meaningful way.”
