St. Bonaventure Pop-Up Card Promotes the Virtual Tour and Application

While campus was closed at St. Bonaventure University, the admissions team was looking for a captivating way to increase viewership of their virtual tour and also generate applications.

The solution needed to be something compelling to pique students’ curiosity and move them to take action. The team at Magellan Promotions helped solve this challenge by incorporating a 3-D pop-up card, which is a modern twist on a traditional greeting card, into the schools outreach strategy.

The pop-up card provided prospective students with a small three-dimensional rendering of campus that captured their attention and gave a sense of what campus looks like. The illustrations of the university’s location, campus buildings, and iconic landmarks, enhanced the impact of the message and increased the amount of time a reader interacted with the card. The pop-up card was fully customized with the school’s unique brand colors and logo on the outside. On the inside, in addition to the pop-up features, direct messaging with a call to action to watch the tour and apply were incorporated through included QR codes.

Mailed to prospective students in an imprinted envelope, this fun, engaging, and impactful card provided a way to create a physically-engaging interactive moment that complemented the university’s email and digital marketing campaigns.

How Branded Merch Can Help
with Staff Retention

In 2022, one of the biggest topics continues to be the Great Resignation and the strategic imperatives that organizations need to implement to retain staff. As we all know, there are a number of inputs that affect retention. While the Boomers, Gen X, Millennials and Gen Y are all different, studies (and common sense) consistently show that employees are attracted to organizations that care for them, provide work/life flexibility, are engaged in creating a better society and feel connected with their co-workers. Branded merch can help with staff retention by demonstrating all of these things. Now while branded merch cannot
