Marketing Research/ Demographics/ Consumer Behavior
Nowadays many small rural universities or colleges are faced with the challenge of how to expand schools' student body. Given the limited budget, these schools need to make preliminary decisions on how to better reach high school students in order to achieve optimal enrollment goals. In this study, a survey was conducted to make an attempt at determining how a small rural university can effectively approach its anticipated target market. The objectives of this study are: 1. to determine how the target audiences hear about the university; 2. to determine who makes the final decisions regarding the target audience’s future education; 3. to identify the most effective advertisement approach to the target audience; 4. to determine the target audience’s media habits. Data are collected and analyzed. The results are presented.
