Humor + Academia = Win
Words are nice, but pictures are better, so we brought fun visual elements like GIFs and memes into the blog posts. No boring academic content around here.
Based on keyword and topic research, we provided content recommendations for their graduate school blog and program-level blogs. Some were researched & written by Up&Up, and others by UL at Lafayette writers. These posts were designed to provide useful content around keywords that prospective students might be searching for.
Search Engine Optimization
We also implemented traditional SEO best practices to increase UL at Lafayette’s keyword rankings in key areas and boost the reach of the blog posts. We provided recommendations for on-site optimization for their graduate school site and target program sites.
The farther you can spread your content, the better. We built a social media strategy and helped them launch social presences on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
