Business benefits of student placements:
Company Director, Callum Morgan recognised the need for a cost effective method of increasing their social media presence. Morgan Branding recognised they needed to reach and engage with new audiences, which would increase their demand. Collaborating with students would also provide Morgan Branding with access to a pipeline of talented graduates to support future recruitment.
Callum was keen to have up-to-date digital skills onboard to conduct a competitor analysis of where improvements could be made to Morgan Branding’s strategy. BSc (Hons) Marketing with Digital Communications student, Anna Bolger was appointed to fill the placement.
The forward-thinking organisation was aware of potential future recruitment issues and to pre-empt this, they built a relationship with Edge Hill University to provide them with a valuable network of talented students and graduates who would bring innovative content ideas to maximise their social media presence. After conducting a competitor analysis, Anna recognised a new TikTok channel would give Morgan Branding a competitive advantage as well as increase their demand.
As a direct result of the placement, Morgan Branding has gained 15,000 followers on TikTok and achieved a +415% weekly engagement rate with 105,000 video views. This has increased their profitability as they have created numerous leads for web design and email marketing campaigns from followers of their TikTok page.
Anna’s contribution to the Morgan Branding team has been invaluable in terms of creativity, visionary and strategic thinking. To continue to grow Morgan Branding’s social media presence, Callum has offered Anna a full time graduate position upon completion of her studies. The organisation has gone from strength to strength with student placements driving forward their productivity, profitability, and demand.
