In a world where trends, attitudes and preferences are changing daily, New Reach Media helps colleges, non-profits and other organizations reach selected individuals in their audience and connect with them. We call it Engagement Marketing. Our agile approach to communication, Personal Relationship OptimizationSM, helps you promote, develop and track engagement, enabling you to deliver the right message to the right person at the right time through the right channel.
How We Help
New Reach Media helps institutions and organizations influence the attitudes and actions of their individual prospects, supporters and other stakeholders, typically through the leverage of our Personal Relationship Optimization℠ cross-channel communication platform. We continually evolve and apply new methods and technologies to improve the effectiveness, economy and efficiency of our clients' communications. We build learning relationships that create value for our clients. Put simply, we help connect people to achieve results.
In some of our recent projects New Reach Media has:
- helped Chowan University achieve recognition as the fastest growing private college in North Carolina over a five year period.
- helped Daniel Edelen, a sixteen-year-old Leukemia Lymphoma Society "Man of the Year" candidate, break a national fund-raising record.
- helped Brevard College enroll a record number of first year full time students in our first year to support their enrollment efforts.
The Road to Becoming the Fastest Growing Private College in North Carolina
Chowan University is a private liberal arts institution located in Murfreesboro, NC, an area of the state that locals refer to as the Inner Banks. Surrounded by small agrarian communities, and 45 minutes from I-95, Chowan is definitely off the beaten path, but as they put it, “only an hour from anywhere.” Originally founded in 1848 as Chowan Baptist Female Institute, a 4-year women’s college, the school became Chowan College in 1910, and began enrolling male students in 1931. On the heels or the Great Depression, the school became a 2-year institute in 1937 but returned to four-year status in 1992.
In 2004, Chowan College was on wobbly footing. A new president was appointed, and a new course...Read more...
The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Man & Woman of the Year (MWOY) campaign is a fundraising competition in communities across the U.S. in which participants vie for the title of Man or Woman of the Year. The titles are awarded to the men and women in each community who raise the most funds during the ten-week campaign; the top local fundraisers in the country also win the national titles.
New Reach Media (NRM) worked in 2013 to support the campaign for San Antonio Man of the Year of a 16-year-old leukemia survivor by the name of Daniel Edelen. Working with the campaign team, NRM utilized its Personal Relationship OptimizationSM (PROSM) platform to launch a personal URL...Read more...
Brevard College is a small, private, United Methodist, liberal arts college located in picturesque Brevard, North Carolina. The college currently grants the Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, or Bachelor of Music degree, and is committed to programs of experiential learning and service education for its students. In January 2012, a new president was appointed at Brevard, and a refinement to the institution's direction was undertaken.
In the fall of 2012, New Reach Media (NRM) was brought in first as a consultant, and subsequently as a service provider to provide enrollment and marketing support to recruit the incoming class for fall, 2013. Working with the new...Read more...
How We Work
At New Reach Media there is no "one size fits all" approach. We initiate ongoing relationships with clients by listening attentively. We develop shared confidence in our partnerships to assure that they grow from a strong foundation of trust and transparency. We work collaboratively to assure that we provide the best possible solutions to meet your unique requirements and goals. We assist you in engaging your audience in ways relevant to them to help you achieve your goals.
On Target. On Message. On Time.
We Do More with Less
At New Reach Media, our organization is "small by choice". While this approach requires us to be more selective in choosing associates and partners, it also makes those relationships more meaningful to us. We have chosen to be small because it allows us to be agile and innovative, to better adapt to specific client needs rather than be compromised by a larger organizational bureaucracy or politics. Our size enables us to be quick and efficient, ensuring that you get the attention and support you deserve when you need it. Our size is a lever for your success.

We Build Learning Relationships
The foundation of our external communication solutions is to develop learning relationships between you and your audience. This means that while prospects or supporters are learning about you, you are learning about them as well, gaining insights and additional understanding of their interests, needs and desires. This approach helps to build relationships that create value for both you and your stakeholders. These learning relationships are enabled by our cross-channel Personal Relationship OptimizationSM (PROSM) platform for campaign execution and reporting. Working in partnership with our clients, we design and deliver customized marketing processes and communication campaigns to achieve your specific goals.
We Create New Opportunities
The solution that worked for you yesterday is probably not going to be the most effective approach for tomorrow. Our team's diversity and varying perspectives contribute to uncovering new ways for us to help clients by questioning the past and re-imaging the future. Our penchant for innovating continues to drive new solutions that enable our clients to reach new heights in both institutional and personal performance.
We do more than just tell your story;
we help you manage resources and improve efficiency.

What We Think
We invite you to explore What We Think, an ongoing collection of our thoughts on communications and the techniques and technologies that influence them. Below is our most recent post; previous posts can be read by clicking here.
On Monday, Google rolled out their new mobile-focused algorithms for indexing and displaying web pages in their search queries and some of the changes could affect how your institution/organization shows up in search results. Here are some actionable takeaways to help you survive Mobilegeddon.
Make sure your website is optimized for Mobile.
Start by using Google’s Mobile Friendly Test to see if your site is optimized for mobile. If it's not, there are two ways to make the move.
- Create a new website on a mobile subdomain like m.yourdomain.edu.
- Change your website to responsive design to ensure proper viewing on any device. (This is the method we strongly recommend.)
Another way of testing your site’s mobile rating is by running a Google search for your site on a mobile device. If the search result displays the “mobile-friendly” message before your site, then you are in the clear. (See example below.)
Use Google’s Webmaster Tools.
