Enhance Your Brand

In the Higher Education industry, trust and brand reputation are critically important to your college or university performance. A good way to build that trust and enhance your reputation is by supplying your readers and audience with content that fits the way they do everything else (on their mobile devices).

Mobile-First, Responsive Platforms Build Credibility

In a mobile-first world, consumers have grown used to exceedingly slick social media platforms, smartphone applications, and dead-simple shopping experiences. Not only does your collateral need to stand out, but the presentation and design of your collateral needs to stand out. In a highly competitive industry, the medium truly is the message..

Create Dynamic Designs that Showcase Your Content

Nxtbook’s platforms deliver a curated content experience for colleges and universities. Our customers have used our platforms for a variety of use-cases, including:

Student Guides
Campus Magazines
Alumni Magazines
Human Resources Guides
Student Newspapers

And Much More...

Two Platforms. Unlimited Potential.

Nxtbook Media offers two platforms to meet the evolving needs of higher education.

PageRaft allows schools to create a fully responsive, interactive experience across all devices. With nxtbook, you can create digital content that replicates traditional print layouts. Both platforms provide insightful analytics for your engagement initiatives.

These insights go well beyond traditional PDF metrics (number of downloads). Instead, these tools help you better understand how your readers are engaging with your content and for how long.

Enhancing the Digital Content Experience in Higher Education

We help leading colleges and universities around the world effectively engage their students, prospective students, faculty, and alumni.

Here's how:

  • Enhanced student/Prospective student and alumni experience
  • Improved lead generation and return on investment
  • Ease-of-use, unrivaled support

Enhanced Student/Prospective Student and Alumni Experience

  • Our platforms help colleges and universities deliver a responsive, awesome-on-any-device, content experience fit for modern users that distinguishes your brand from the crowd.
  • Accessibility options to ensure compliance with legal guidelines and optimal user experiences.
  • Build community around your educational brand with structured multimedia-friendly experiences (newsletters, magazines, monthly updates). Tie all of your assets together into one curated, responsive package and save money on printing costs.
  • Integrated calls-to-action to drive alumni giving, donations, and further engagement.
  • Securely distribute newsletters without worrying your competition will get them (unlike email or blogs).

Improved lead generation and return on investment

  • Content published on our platforms is SEO-friendly and it keeps prospects engaged longer than web pages/blogs.
  • Content is easily shareable on social and via email (share to a specific page as well). This feature is a great tactic for increasing donations. It can also be securely locked-down if desired.
  • Impressed prospects = higher quality leads.
  • In-depth analytics can help guide future content development. You’ll always know what people are paying the most attention to.

Ease-of-use, unrivaled support

  • No technical knowledge required. We take care of the coding and hosting.
  • Version control/consistent messaging - publish once/update everywhere.
  • An experienced, reliable partner there to support your goals.

Designing for Digital Natives

With increased competition, every touch point matters. Forward-thinking creative directors, communications directors, marketing managers, fundraisers, and enrollment coordinators are examining every step of the student’s enrollment journey to find ways to increase satisfaction and decrease friction that may stop them from engaging with your institution of learning.

If you are designing print materials for campus guides, alumni magazines or other publications and publishing PDFs online, your mobile-first readership is going to experience some friction as they browse your site. These digital natives may also wonder just how forward-thinking a school is if they are using technology that dates back to the 1990s (PDFs). We can help you design for digital natives.
