  12. Rationale • College athletic programs’ universal and diverse demographic profiles have the ability to reach all KCTCS targeted audiences. • Combined, our college sports coverage has the ability to reach every area of the state. • Kentucky does not have professional sports….this increases the power of buying college sports.

  13. Rationale • Allows us to reach our audience at many touch points; signage at the game, on-field activities, print, radio, tv/cable, pa announcements etc. Very few media buys provide this type of coverage.

  14. Rationale • Transfer is one of our core missions. • CPE, policy-makers, legislators have challenged us to increase the number of KCTCS students transferring to four-year institutions. • The four-year college buy reinforces our transfer relationship. • It allows us to be able to sponsor unique transfer events with these institutions.

  15. Rationale • Both the 2006 and 2011 prospective student research indicates that while we have made great progress in elevating the image of community colleges…there is still much work to be done. • Many still do not perceive us as “higher education.” Aligning with UK/U of L places us in this arena….provides credibility. • 2011 perception ratings dropped among all groups because of lack of college life/social activities. This buys places us in the typical college social environment – college sports.

  16. Rationale • A statewide media buy gives us more “bang for the buck” compared to buying locally and outside the sports campaign. For example, in 2012-13 buy: • Persons ages 12-17 • CPM (cost per thousand views): $278 ($500 CPM non-UK/UL statewide buy; $700 CPM purchased locally) • Persons ages 18-34 • CPM: $77 ($139 CPM non-UK/UL statewide buy; $194 CPM purchased locally) • Persons ages 25-54 • CPM: $31 ($56 CPM non-UK/UL; $78 CPM purchased locally)

  17. Fall Enrollment Blitz • Goal • To support the colleges with their fall enrollment efforts. • No decline in enrollment for Fall 2014. • Increase awareness among the state’s thinking and talking public about the role KCTCS plays in the state’s economy. • Increase awareness among Kentuckians of the unique high-wage, high demand jobs programs KCTCS offers.
