Their Goal

Connect directly with individuals looking for education options

Arden University is a leading provider of online higher education with the goal of providing quality education irrespective of people’s geographical location, financial means, and prior academics. Global University Systems (GUS), Arden’s parent network, manages Arden’s social media marketing and aimed to promote a sense of community by procuring high-level engagement that positively extends the university’s reach and visibility.
Quora is unique in that it offers us the ability to build credibility in the eyes of students during the most important research phase. We were able to establish Arden’s brand presence, understand the target audience, and act upon their key areas of motivation.
