Six million students look to NZ's teachers in digital campaign
ENZ’s global Future Proof campaign has reached over six million prospective students and attracted close to 4,000 leads in just two weeks – find out how your institution can get involved.
On 8 October, ENZ launched Future Proof 2.0, the second iteration of its successful “Future Proof” marketing campaign from earlier this year, which raised awareness of New Zealand’s #1 ranking in the Economist Intelligence Unit’s Worldwide Educating for the Future Index.
Philippa Brown, ENZ’s International Digital Content Manager, said the new campaign aims to personalise the ranking by showcasing the teachers and academics who make New Zealand’s education system world leading.
“Brand research has shown that teacher quality is an important factor in decision making – so the campaign’s central message is: Our teachers lead the world in preparing students for the future.
“By creating campaign videos, profiles and photos of our teachers and the ways they work to encourage and challenge their students, we hope to attract more international students seeking that same learning environment.”
The campaign will run over eight weeks across 14 of ENZ’s strategic markets, and has already reached over six million students and attracted close to 4,000 to sign up to our database.
“These prospective students receive a series of emails that further tell New Zealand’s education story and encourage them to register for My StudyNZ, where they can find study programmes aligned to their interests, and connect directly with New Zealand institutions and agents.
“Future Proof 2.0 offers a fantastic opportunity for New Zealand providers to increase the impact of their own marketing by aligning their activities with the campaign. For example, they can highlight their region’s or institution’s teachers while the campaign is running.”
Providers can access free Future Proof 2.0 assets in The Brand Lab, including videos, imagery and other content.
