May 6, 2008, Our Student Portfolios site is launched.
Our Student Portfolios site was launched on May 6, 2008 to a fantastic reception from all the schools involved - and the many more art & design schools already in line to come onboard in May.
The new site allows prospective art & design school students to search on and view portfolios of students currently enrolled in programs at creative arts schools throughout North America, as well as the schools recent grads, to discover the program and school that best matches their interests. They can view the students reels, images, resumes, etc and then register to ask the portfolio owner questions, request program info or set an appointment with the school to begin the application process.
'The site was developed because we saw a gap in the marketplace'
says Jon Hill, President of Big Clic Inc, the parent company. There is a great deal of white noise in the education lead generation market with most leads produced via an old lead generation model whereby the user is given no other avenue to contact the school other than registering for more information. Our Student Portfolios promises to engage the user and bring a much more qualified lead to the table for the school admissions departments by allowing the user to not only learn more about the exact program they might be interested in via the portfolios but then requesting more information from the school related to the portfolio they are viewing.
The site is open to all creative arts schools in North America. To learn more about Our Student Portfolios or the School Portfolio Connect™
