Undergraduate Conversion Stream

California College of the Arts

An 8-email drip campaign nurturing prospective students towards application. I analyzed data from admitted student and cancelation surveys to define key decision-making criteria and develop a campaign that addressed common user concerns by reinforcing the brand's major proof points in a fun and engaging way. The campaign (still ongoing) has already seen an increase in conversion rates (leads to applicants).

Portfolio Guide

California College of the Arts

A 19 page, pocket-sized print piece with helpful advice for students interested in improving their art portfolio to apply for schools. I worked closely with admissions stakeholders and in-house designers to craft a quirky, zine-inspired guide that could be given out to students at on-site visits, college fairs, and as a digital premium content offer for inbound marketing campaigns.

Content Marketing - Decision Stage

California College of the Arts

I researched, outlined, copyedited, and SEO optimized a suite of inbound marketing content for 3 of CCA’s Graduate Studies programs that led to an increase in applications.

Since this decision-stage content was targeted at a highly sophisticated audience of college graduates researching a graduate degree in Design, it needed to be informative, engaging, and authentic without being sales-y. And due to limited budget, it needed to be done with minimal access to copywriters. I began by conducting interviews with key stakeholders to determine their audience’s most frequently asked questions, which I then used to create a series of questionnaires to be filled out by current students, alumni, and faculty. Their (copyedited) responses formed the bulk of each piece, leaving copywriters only a few intros, closing paragraphs, and headlines to write based on my keyword research.

Undergraduate Viewbook

California College of the Arts

I worked closely with admissions stakeholders and the Bay Area design firm, Volume, to create this 28 page catalog (with additional 12 page custom, off-size inserts) that profiles 4 CCA students, while touching on some of the institutions core proof points in a poetic fashion.

Website Redesign #2

slim's presents

For my second website redesign for the Slim's Presents brand, I worked with a freelance designer to create a dynamic, fully responsive, mobile-first website inspired by the infinite browse-ability of Netflix. The site was the first deep API integration of the Eventbrite ticketing system into a large-scale venue website.

Website Redesign #1

slim's presents

One of my first projects as Marketing Manager at Slim's and Great American Music Hall was a branding project disguised as a website redesign project. I took what was previously 2 different identities with separate audiences and online presences, and consolidated them under a single umbrella (along with the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival) as Slim's Presents. The new brand and accompanying site focused on building a strong presence as a local, independent music institution in direct competition with the major corporate players that were taking over the landscape.

Email Marketing

In an effort to improve the performance of the brand's owned marketing channels, I implemented analytics tracking data and A/B testing to develop a revised email marketing strategy (and design) that more than doubled clickthrough rates and conversion rates.
