Client Spotlight: Creighton University

Located in Omaha, Nebraska, Creighton University has established itself as one of the nation’s top-ranked educational institutions, combining its Jesuit philosophy with a diverse educational curriculum. For more than 100 years, the university has prioritized the education of its students while remaining true to its Catholic values and traditions. 

When ON Advertising acquired Evans Communications in April 2020, we continued our ongoing partnership with Creighton University. We’ve worked diligently to raise awareness of the university’s work in Arizona as their local public relations firm and now serve as the university’s ad agency in the Phoenix market. 

What We Do For Creighton University

Since 2017, we’ve partnered with Creighton University on several initiatives and assisted the Creighton team in reaching their goals in the Phoenix market. 

Our extensive scope of services for their team includes:

Arizona is currently facing a shortage of healthcare professionals, and Creighton’s expansion of its medical and nursing programs is one of the largest investments in healthcare education in Arizona in recent years. Creighton is no stranger to Arizona — the university has been educating doctors and nurses in Phoenix for more than a decade. With the opening of the new $100 million Creighton University Health Sciences Campus next year, there’s an opportunity for Creighton to expand its impact even further. 

That is where ON Advertising comes in. As their advertising agency, we assist them in their branding efforts to further establish their presence in Arizona and provide interested students with information about their curriculum and their future campus site.

What Has Happened

Creighton University has accomplished a great deal over the years to secure its place in the Phoenix, Arizona community. In 2018, the university announced plans for a $100 million Creighton University Health Services Campus at Park Central, with the groundbreaking in 2019 attracting significant media attention. Our public relations efforts have helped boost awareness of its medical and nursing programs locally and its partnership with Arizona State University. And as Creighton’s local advertising agency, it is our goal to further increase awareness and student recruitment for the university as it opens the campus in Spring 2021. 

What’s Ahead for Creighton University

Our work never stops. As we get closer to the grand opening of Creighton’s Health Services Campus, we are continually evaluating the next steps for our client. The campus will attract students and educators who are willing to answer Arizona’s healthcare professional shortage, and we’ll have the strategies to help Creighton University appeal to them.

Trends Affecting the Restaurant Industry

New developments in technology have been impacting consumer preferences and attitudes toward the restaurant industry. These changes have left consumers wanting faster and more convenient ways to purchase food from restaurants. Companies like UberEats and GrubHub have capitalized on these emerging trends. The millennial generation is also known for being more mobile than previous generations, meaning they are constantly busy and have an “on the go” mindset. Millennials are also willing to spend more on experiences rather than services and products, with 72% of millennial spending going towards experiential based activities. The restaurant industry will need to be making some dramatic changes in order to appeal to these new trends. Some ideas we have are:
Online and Mobile Ordering
Consumers are spending more time on their phones now than ever before. Smartphones and other smart devices make it easy for consumers to place orders on their mobile devices. Having a mobile-friendly ordering platform will ensure that consumers can conveniently order food from your restaurant.
Mobile Payment Options
Continuing with the habit of increased mobile device usage, mobile payment options are starting to slowly replace traditional cash or credit cards. Platforms like ApplePay and PayPal can encrypt consumers’ payment data so all they have to do is scan a barcode on their phone. Having a POS system that supports this method of payment can speed up line waits as well as ensure that your restaurant caters to the needs of every consumer.
Personalized Experiences
One of the most influential factors that consumers now look for when choosing a restaurant is an establishment that can offer them personal experiences. Consumers are looking for experiences that document and share with their friends on social media. Restaurants can capitalize on this by offering specialized dishes, extra service features, and branded hashtags.
These adaptations may sound overwhelming at first, however, adopting these tactics will allow your restaurant to become differentiated amongst the growing restaurant industry. At ON Advertising, we understand how sociocultural trends are affecting our restaurant clients. Don’t hesitate to reach out to learn more about how we can help your restaurant thrive!
 

Tools To Help Your Business Get Media Coverage

In our last blog we told you about a couple of tools to keep your eye on in 2016. Along those lines, we now want to share some tips that could help you grow your business this year.
We recently read an article that listed resources available to entrepreneurs. While most were geared toward making it easier for a small business to operate on a day-to-day basis (like Asana and Google Drive), some of them stood out because they promise to help businesses do something that used to be left to experts: obtaining media coverage.
