Strategy and Media Used:

The first phase in March 2015 focused on branding the school image and locations.  The 30 bus kings provided four-week impressions of 3,447,000 and 360,000 impressions for interiors. The second phase in July 2015 was more strategic, placing 10 kings and headliners on specific routes, targeting high schools and major surface streets that lead to malls and entertainment venues. Ten bus kings were in the mix for reach and frequency along with 50 bus interiors to target the riders on their commute to school or other destinations. This phase delivered 2,658,000 impressions for four weeks. The 3rd phase focused on both enrollment and marketing the school’s brand and achievements. This was a mix of wrapped buses and headliners, bus tails, bus interiors, and bulletins; delivering a total of 3,700,228 impressions within four weeks.
