Identify Your Strengths and Competitive Advantages

Understanding your competitors is key to building a successful marketing strategy. As your strategic partner, Campus Sonar has a deep understanding of the higher ed market and target audiences. We look for trends and insights as we validate and analyze your data, putting it in context and turning observations into insights. One way to add context is through competitive analysis. A competitive analysis includes evaluating: 

Bar graph with stars on the top of each bar, indicating competitor comparison

Share of Voice

Consider how your brand compares to that of your competitors or peers.

Speech bubble with a heart indicating brand health

Brand Health

After you help us understand your brand pillars, we analyze their presence in your conversation, as well as the conversation about your competitors or peers to see how your institution compares.

Person indicating evaluation of influencers


We evaluate influencers you should capture or that your competitors have captured. The right influencer can be a strategic move, especially if you're part of a highly specialized program where there are only so many influencers. You can increase mindshare through influencer affiliation in highly competitive markets.
