Case: Nyenrode New Business School

Newsroom content boosts website traffic of Nyenrode New Business School.

Newsfacts:
  • Newsroom content secures visitors based on relevant content instead of paid clicks thru Adwords campaign.
  • Website traffic: performance has increased drastically whilst costs have decreased.
  • Nyenrode New Business School makes use of PressPage's online and social media newsroom technology.

Nyenrode New Business School decided to expand its static website with a social media newsroom in May 2011. They opted for PressPage's technology.

Below is a short case description as released by Nyenrode New Business School today.

Adwords
The Adwords campaign was discontinued in July. Consequentially, from that moment we noted a downward trend in the amount of visitors to our website. This gave insight to the fact that the high number of website visitors per month mainly came from paid advertising. Furthermore, it can be concluded these visitors were not loyal enough to ensure "steady" returning visits.

stats Returning traffic
The PressPage newsroom was launched in May. From this moment on we see an increase in the number of visitors based on relevant content (not "paid bait" but "news") versus the paid Adwords campaigns of recent years. The statistics also show that the percentage of returning visitors is high, which was precisely the intent of the newsroom: offer influencers a place where they can find everything they need.

Cost reduction
While the performance substantially improved, the monthly costs have decreased by 7%. This reduction is inclusive of monthly external (PR) advice.

Conclusion
We have gained greater and better (content) interaction with the visitor at lower monthly costs.

This case shows the true value of content. Nyenrode New Business School's new strategy delivers content, improved online presence and engaged visitors. I strongly believe this is the way to go for most companies.
