Marketing Research Case Study #1
Social Media’s Halo Effect on Organic Search Is a mention without a link worth anything? It can be! This case study from the Level Ten Design blog recounts the effects on a client’s traffic after Selena Gomez mentioned the business on Twitter. The author guesses that the reach of that tweet, including retweets, was well over a million, and the site’s analytics saw a huge boost in organic traffic and brand-related keyword searches (what he called “a halo effect”).
Internet Marketing Case Study #2:
Squeeze Page Optimization: How to Get 700+ Free Leads and a 64% Conversion Rate
Viper Chill (Glen Alsop) has written a ton of case studies on his blog – after a while, all his success gets annoying. (Just kidding.) This one is an analysis of a squeeze page he created that had an extraordinarily high conversion rate of 64%. The offer was a free e-book, but there was a catch: “In order for people to get the guide (you guessed it) they had to Tweet or Facebook share a link to my website.” This ended up sending hundreds of additional visitors.

I was studying Aeronautical in a traditional college, hearing Cornerstone I shifted from Bangalore and joined here. The foundation year started with direct aerospace units, unlike other colleges.
KCIC offers a different learning environment, unconventional educational methods, with opportunities combined with industrial visits, workshops, and other things, to compete at international level.
Very content with my learning at KCIC, learning two years of my international program here has reduced the cost of study abroad by 60%, and I am excited about my international career.
