The Problem


Jessup University recognized the immense potential of online education and decided to take a bold step by launching their online programs.

This realization led them to reach out to Two Trees PPC, a renowned digital marketing agency, for assistance.

The university's primary goal was to establish successful ad campaigns that would effectively promote their online programs to a wider audience. They understood that in order to compete with other universities offering online degrees, they needed to develop targeted and engaging advertisements. But their objective went beyond just running ad campaigns.

Jessup University was determined to empower and support their small marketing team in enhancing their skills for promoting online courses. They recognized the importance of staying updated with the latest digital marketing strategies and techniques. By partnering with Two Trees PPC, they aimed to equip their team with the knowledge and expertise required to effectively market their online programs.


As a leading digital marketing agency, Two Trees PPC executed a strategic and highly effective digital marketing plan for Jessup University, utilizing TikTok Ads and Google Search Ads to drive enrollment numbers for their online programs.

Additionally, Two Trees PPC implemented Google Search Ads to further enhance the online visibility of Jessup University's programs. By strategically targeting relevant keywords and optimizing ad copy, they ensured that Jessup University's ads appeared prominently in search engine results. This increased exposure resulted in a higher click-through rate and ultimately drove more qualified traffic to the university's website.

The success of this digital marketing plan led Jessup University to recognize the expertise and effectiveness of Two Trees PPC.
