It’s a complex web of content creators with different audience sizes and ways of working. Finding the right influencer and content for your audience can be tricky, not to mention the challenge of measuring the impact on your business.
At Hult, we created and upskilled a network of 90+ influencer students (and parents!) across 6 global campuses with varied social media experience and limited content creation knowledge. In just 1 month, our social media audience grew 30%, 200+ new conversations were started with prospective students, and 30+ students confirmed their place to study, bringing in $1 million of revenue. We did all this with a budget of less than $10K. Over 12 months, they would go on to create 4,000+ pieces of content and host 50+ Instagram live sessions showcasing Hult at its very best through the perspective of its own students.
