Neptune Beach, FL (PRWEB) April 19, 2011
Envisage International Corporation, the leader in international education marketing and recruitment, announced the launch of a new US School Search on its flagship site InternationalStudent.com. The School Search offers a comprehensive, searchable database of colleges and universities in the US that enroll international students, and permits schools to adopt and control their listings for free. US colleges and universities that want additional exposure can upgrade their listing to a Featured School.
All schools that adopt their listing, whether they have a free or featured listing, will be given a login where they can view and download reports on all international students that have expressed an interest in their school. In addition, those inquiries are sent to the school in real time, allowing schools to respond immediately to interested students.
If a school decides to upgrade its free listing to a paid Featured School, the school is completely integrated into Envisage’s web presence which includes the following:
- Enhanced profile, including photos, logo and contact information
- Real-time inquiries or traffic to its designated site from interested students
- Integration of the school’s Facebook and Twitter pages
- Banners rotating throughout InternationalStudent.com
- Dedicated articles and links from relevant content throughout the Envisage network
- Inclusion in the monthly newsletter that reaches over 350,000 opt- in subscribers
- Social media marketing through Envisage Facebook and Twitter channels

“Since today’s students are growing up on the internet and born into social media, it is imperative to have a strategy to reach them there. Our new School Search is both comprehensive, offering over 2,300 schools to search, but targeted, listing only those schools that admit international students. These two features make it a great free service for our number one consumer, our community of international students,” said Ross Mason, International Director.
To lead the sales and marketing efforts for the new Featured School Programs and other advertising opportunities, Envisage International has recently added Don Sears to the team. As Director of Sales, Don will oversee all aspects of the sales process from implementation and execution to delivery and fulfillment, fully supported by the Envisage International team. After ten years driving media sales for WeatherBug, Don brings valuable experience to the Envisage team.
“We have built the organic traffic to our sites for years, and we expect to reach over 5 million students this year,” said Keith Clausen, President of Envisage International. “Our community of international students is strong, and hungry for information about US colleges and universities. We are very excited about being able to respond to the need for school-specific information within our community.”
At a minimum, all US schools that accept international students are urged to adopt their free profile listing, so they can control their message. For further information, contact Don Sears at dsears(at)envisageinternational(dot)com or visit the site: http://www.envisageinternational.com.
