CRAS people make it

CRAS is a unique and potent combination of state-of-the-art facilities, the latest technology, and amazing staff. CRAS teaches the skills and concepts needed to start a career in the recording arts.

CRAS came to TMBPartners looking to clarify their brand, increase admission, and grow brand recognition for their for-profit post-secondary school. Facing numerous obstacles in regard to public perceptions, government regulations, and the general “common understanding” of trade-based education, TMBPartners started with an extensive brand audit. Armed with actionable data, we continuously provide a full list of branding services including a brand and communication strategy that encompasses all content creation, brand standards, logo/identity, photography, website development, trade show booths, events, collateral materials, and more.

Once the brand positioning and research was completed, TMBPartners developed and activated a revised digital marketing plan that included accurate-results data and strategic campaign planning and management. We also layered in more branding and awareness throughout their digital display ads, remarketing, and social ads, which has resulted in increased student enrollment, lower digital marketing costs, and greater brand recognition.
