Using webinars to connect with qualified students around the world
Webinars are a powerful, cost effective tool to bring your institution to life and help you engage with students. We make the process easy by giving you all the support you need to run a successful campaign without any strain on your internal resources.
BMI maintains active social media communities and a robust database of engaged, qualified students who are genuinely interested in obtaining international qualifications. After consulting with one of our in-house marketing experts, we’ll refine our audiences based on your targeted student profiles and the markets you wish to reach.
Tip! Your dedicated campaign manager can help you plan a series of webinars for one or more key markets.
