“I loved the creative process, with messaging and imagery that was really focused on student response. As far back as we’ve tracked, those emails and campaigns we ran through Switchboard have our highest response rate from students—by far. At the end of the day, the ROI really spoke for itself. I look forward to working together in the future.”
