Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
In our preliminary research, we searched the Moat database, Facebook Ad library, and iSpot database for advertising materials from five of the 17 colleges and universities in the given list. We recommend continuing our research by searching for advertising materials from the same sources. For each database, we will describe how many are currently circulating, have circulated in the past year, and a general overview of the kind of content presented in the ads. Furthermore, we will identify, when possible, any external agencies that the institution partnered with for marketing campaigns and metrics for the success of their marketing campaigns.
Alternatively, we could search for successful case studies of advertising campaigns by universities or colleges in the New York area. For each case study, we would identify the school, the method of execution of the campaign, and metrics for the success of the campaign.
