The challenge – to spread an early awareness of three new Red bull flavours (Lime, Cranberry, Blueberry) amongst the early adopters group of 18 year olds in the UK.
The solution – to send a sneak preview direct to 17,500 lucky accepted applicants in the 2012 cycle – intending to create an aspirational appeal for the new flavours.
The outcome – using UCAS’ rich and up-to-date data, delivered sample cans with congratulatory letters from Red Bull – creating an organic social media buzz with over 1,200 Twitter comments.
The challenge – to launch the Pure Student Living brand internationally.
The solution – an email campaign and a stand at a London based event, designed to target international applicants applying to universities within a specific distance from the accommodation block. A total of 15,497 emails were sent. A second campaign followed in August to those accepted via Clearing to study on a course anywhere in Greater London – an additional total of 5,269 emails.
The outcome – “UCAS’ expertise allowed us to identify and target international applicants, a very difficult group to reach, especially prior to acceptance onto a university course. We had fantastic results, with a 52% open rate and 10% click through rate. We filled some of our available rooms and will continue advertising with them throughout 2013.”
The challenge – to promote the discount card to all 18-25 year old applicants, and ultimately drive signups via the website.

The solution – a targeted email sent to 5,870 medical course university applicants, and a second campaign targeting anyone in the London area who was considering studying medicine.

We also had great results for our second campaign – with an open rate of 28%. The careful timing and the targeting of these campaigns resulted in a distinct surge in subscriptions: a definite success.”
