LeadsCouncil awarded Sparkroom with gold and silver LEADER awards for the third year in a row. This year, we received the Gold LEADER Award for best marketing agency in education and the Silver LEADER Award for most innovative company in education.

Are we surprised? Not in the slightest. After all, Sparkroom has a long history of providing innovative technology and solutions to higher education institutions across the nation.

Here’s how two of our leaders responded to the news:

I’ve worked with Sparkroom both as a client and as part of the team. From both the inside and outside perspectives, the Sparkroom squad is unmistakably stacked with leaders who understand and anticipate evolving enrollment marketing and management challenges. As a result, they are able to help institutions achieve their most demanding enrollment objectives. ― Marcelo Parravicini, President of Sparkroom

I’ve been working hand-in-hand with college marketers and executives for the past five years. At Sparkroom we tackle every opportunity with a fresh perspective and strategy. We never apply cookie cutter methods because we believe each institution deserves a custom, targeted approach. Rachel Schulties, Vice President of Client Services at Sparkroom

Our full-service solutions are focused on delivering higher-quality student prospects, better conversion rates and holistic campaign performance data to achieve the greatest possible return on investment.

Sparkroom performance marketing technology, a top-choice for higher education lead management for years, received significant enhancements in 2016 including the introduction of campaign dashboards. “The rigorous 2017 roadmap is centered on adding cross-channel and multi-touch attribution capabilities by connecting pre-lead and post-lead data across prospective students’ journeys,” explained Akeel Haider, vice president of strategy and innovation at Sparkroom. “We’re focused on developing features that enable aggregate industry performance intelligence insights and help higher education marketers improve their yield performance.” Stay tuned for software enhancement announcements in the following weeks.
