Impact this Upcoming Enrollment Cycle
  

We make it easy for you to work with us to generate initial inquiries, so you can concentrate on enrolling new students and keeping current students happy. We encourage advertisers to review their campaigns with us regularly; we never charge extra for modifications. Just contact cheryl@usjournal.com with any suggestions.

New campaigns are just as simple to get started. Just direct us to current content about your programs, and we can extract appropriate text and images for your Profile Page with us. We'll correspond back and forth until you're satisfied with the presentation of the campaign. New campaigns are typically up and running in just a few days -- which allows us to positively influence this upcoming enrollment cycle. Learn more.


Multi-lingual Campaigns: Here are two more resources documenting the growth in non-English internet usage: NationMaster.com and InternetWorldStats.com. The average penetration rates reveal the most interesting opportunities.

All usjournal.com advertisers with multi-lingual campaigns are most welcome to cut and paste our professional translations to their own .edu domains. You are also strongly encouraged to link from your .edu domains to your translation(s) with us. For assistance, please contact Cheryl directly. For more information about our Sponsorship Opportunities: usjournal.com/en/educators/sponsor.html.


Successful Launch of our MP3 Audio File Series: The overwhelmingly positive response to our latest initiative (It had to be you) may be attributed to responding promptly to feedback from our interns, students, advisors and advertisers. We're constantly asking (and answering) two questions: So what? (Why is this important?) and Now what? (What can we do about it?). Those open lines of communication ensure a healthy and steady stream of fresh ideas.

We're now engrossed in the critical distribution phase of our MP3 files -- targeting affluent non-U.S. students interested in studying in the USA. We're leaving that task to the experts on our Virtual Internship Team, comprised mostly of teenagers around the world. They're doing a fabulous job -- proving once again that the best marketing campaigns these days are not necessarily the most polished. Stay tuned.
