ILEX Publications


The standardized test preparation industry has long been dominated by a few well-known companies, but other companies have since entered the market and have become increasingly competitive, creating a more diluted market. The challenge was to place ILEX in an advantageous position so as to stand out from other test preparation companies. We needed to highlight the unique characteristics of ILEX that would attract and benefit customers.

The Campaign

  1. Create pay-per-click campaign materials including copywriting and graphics
  2. Define key performance indicators to determine how effective each campaign is
  3. Target regional audiences, and then expand to national audiences
  4. Implement and devise new campaigns including holiday, seasonal, and time-sensitive campaigns
