Majors

Albright’s ADP curriculum features an accelerated seminar format with intense use of the Internet as well as additional computer technology. Interaction between students is emphasized and much of this collaboration involves applied group activities.

While traditional classes meet 40-44 hours per semester, Albright’s ADP courses meet for four hours per evening for five to seven weeks. Remaining class time is fulfilled by a combination of Internet usage and independent study.

Through a special partnership with Reading Area Community College, Delaware County Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Lehigh Carbon Community College, Montgomery County Community College, Northampton Community College, and Warren County Community College, most associate degrees (A.A. or A.S.) from these colleges transfer fully to Albright ADP (and acceptance is automatic if all Albright transfer admissions criteria are met.) Albright College offers a $2,500-3,200 Partner Scholarship based on GPA to graduates of these colleges. (Any applicant with an Associates Degree is eligible for a $2,500 scholarship.)

ADP offers bachelor’s degrees in:

Accounting: The accelerated program in accounting prepares students for careers in public and private accounting and in obtaining professional certifications. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

Business Administration: The accelerated program in business administration prepares students for a wide variety of careers in finance, banking, marketing and management. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate school program.

Crime & Justice: The accelerated program in crime and justice involves an analysis of criminal deviance and its roots, plus an in-depth understanding of our criminal justice system’s successes and failures. Unlike other criminal justice programs, students are not trained specifically for police work. Rather, students are educated in the academic study of crime, criminology and justice in preparation for a variety of positions within the criminal justice system.

Digital Communications: Albright College offers one of the only evening accelerated-hybrid programs in Digital Communications in the area. Focus on strategic communication across media platforms including publications, videos, and websites in the Albright College Digital Communications program. (This program is currently offered exclusively at our Reading location.)

Computer and Information Systems: The accelerated program in information systems is based on common structures and degree programs in the United States and Canada. It also meets the recommendation of the Association for Computing Machinery, which sets a variety of standards in technology fields, as well as graduate study programs.

Organizational Behavior / Applied Psychology: The accelerated program in organizational behavior / applied psychology prepares students for a wide variety of careers in social services, management, human resources, training and development. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate program.

Information Systems and Management: Albright s distinctive new major in information systems and management (ISAM) is designed to provide students with both the technical skills and the business acumen required to excel in information systems and business environments.

My Top 33 Digital Marketing Blogs

I used Google Reader for quite a while, but after it met its demise I retreated to a familiar and comfortable (for me) method of keeping up on what’s going on in the industry….email. I subscribe via email, and read (or at least scan) nearly 50 blogs. It’s actually far more than that because several of the sources I devour are actually email aggregators that pull the best posts from many, many blogs. I find that gives me the best coverage.

Other members of the team at Convince Convert have their own reading lists, based on their interests and their topical expertise. Together, we read nearly 150 online publications routinely.

I went through my email for the past week and put together this list of the 33 top digital marketing blogs that I read regularly. I put them into a list.ly format so you can vote for your own favorites. I’m eager to see which you read, as well.

If your blog isn’t on this list, it doesn’t mean I don’t read or don’t subscribe. I just don’t read it as routinely as I do these others. Please add your own suggestions in the comments, too, or add to the list.ly for digital marketing blogs I may have overlooked.

    How We Help Market Your Mortgage Company Online Off

    Writing for the search engines and the end user can be a bit of a juggling act. It used to be that you could cram a bunch of keywords into your pages, get a handful of links, and boom, you ranked. That’s not the case anymore. Now more than ever good content is king and it is a necessity for not landing in Google’s doghouse. A bunch of thin blog posts or pages could result in a Google Panda penalty and wipe out your traffic overnight.

    So, why use us for your mortgage copywriting needs? First, we understand the industry. We’ve worked in it, we have multiple clients in the space who we write for, and we have a good idea of what could lead to a compliance nightmare down the road. We have three awesome copywriters, all who were English Majors, that work in our office. Not India. Not the Philippines.

    Mortgage Pay Per Click Management

    If you have an existing site, you’ve likely tried Adwords at some point in time only to realize what a waste of time and money it can be. When set-up properly, Adwords and Bing Ads can work tremendously. Our clients have spent thousands of dollars a day and generated leads at a fraction of what they would pay purchasing online leads (plus they are exclusive leads from someone who has visited your site and requested information directly from you). It’s all about setting up the campaigns the right way, measuring results, and making tweaks without having to spend 50 hours a month managing every last keyword. Both Google Adwords and Bing Ads have come a long way over the years and there are some great tools at your disposal for helping you find your target market and eliminate wasted clicks and money.

    Social Media Marketing for the Mortgage Space

    Let us start by saying that you can spend lots of time and energy trying to generate mortgage leads via social media and you will drive yourself bonkers (we know, we’ve already tried it). You’re a mortgage company and, no offense, you are not as interesting as Justin Bieber. We’re not saying “don’t do social media”. We just think our mortgage clients need to a have a plan and realistic expectations about what it is going to do for them. You can accumulate Facebook likes, push out content through Twitter, and pin photos of properties in Pinterest all day long and you’re not going to see many leads as a direct result. However, using social media can help you build authority in your space (think Google +), accumulate inbound links, and show the search engines that you are actively pushing out great content. Hopefully all of these elements will give you a little bit of a boost over your competition. We have experience marketing mortgage companies on: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, StumbleUpon (which we don’t recommend for this space), Pinterest, and Linkedin.

    Local Mortgage SEO

    SEO stands for search engine optimization. It involves many different elements including writing great, unique copy, having strong meta tags and descriptions, optimizing site speed, inbound and internal link management, and much more. Whether you’re looking for assistance developing the architecture of your site or simply need a site audit done to help you identify areas for improvement, we can help. If you have a limited footprint and only focus on a single market we can also help you with Local SEO. You’ve likely noticed that the Google Places and Google Plus Local Listings have been dominating more of the search result pages in recent years. There are techniques and actions we can use to help you improve your chances of showing up in these areas.

    Email marketing is a great, often inexpensive way to stay in front of your existing client base. Whether it s crafting copy for drip campaigns or designing a template for monthly newsletters, we can help you plan and execute an email marketing strategy that makes sense for your business.

    Brochures, Postcards, Flyers White Papers

    Let ILM Marketing help you make a great impression on your clients and potential customers. Not only can we help you create great copy, we can also assist you with developing your print collateral and manage the entire printing process.

    Wanna Talk?

    We understand full well that there are tons of great marketing and seo companies out there. However, we don’t think that there are many who have the industry related background and know-how that we do. If you’d like to find out more about our mortgage website design, copywriting, SEO, PPC or social media marketing, or graphic design services, please give us a call at 910-547-6910 for a free consultation.

    The Great Rebate Debate: Are Media Buyers Getting Cash Back?

    By Jack Neff. Published on September 10, 2012.

    Want to quickly quiet a group of agency and marketing execs? Utter the words “media rebates.”

    The Association of National Advertisers reported in July the eye-opening results of a survey indicating that 28% of respondents are worried that media rebates — a reviled but tolerated practice overseas — are becoming more commonplace here. The subject is so highly charged that numerous agency executives, while denying rebates are creeping into the U.S. would not do so on the record. But considering the source — a survey from an entity that represents 450 major marketers that spend $250 billion annually — it’s a subject that can’t be ignored.

    While clients are increasingly suspicious about the practice, some observers suggest they might be driving it: The increased emphasis on procurement-driven cost cuts may have an unintended side effect: encouraging media rebates to rear their ugly heads on U.S. shores.

    Rebates, or, as they are sometimes more colorfully termed, “agency volume bonification” (based on the word bonus), are loosely defined as an agency’s receipt of a volume discount or compensation from media buys that is not necessarily passed on to the client. But even some critics of rebates say they are a natural outgrowth of marketers’ efforts to squeeze agency costs.

    They say that marketers’ efforts to pare costs, eliminate commissions that reward the most expensive media plans and create agency incentives for media performance could ironically be boxing agencies into the kind of cost-plus deals and tightly constrained margins that lead to creative deal structures.

    Has Extreme Gifting Gone Too Far?

    How to Guard Against Rebates

    That’s bunk, declares Judy Beaudry, a former Procter & Gamble Co. media executive who is now VP-media at Kao USA. “I understand everybody wanting to ensure maximum revenue,” Ms. Beaudry said. “Times are tough. But you’ve got to respect what the business relationship is at its core. And agencies, especially some of the big holding companies, have seen their revenues increase a whole lot faster than their clients.

    “It’s just wrong. I don’t mean the rate of increase; I mean taking these kinds of things on the side. It’s not like their houses are burning down and they’ve got to find a way to keep the place open,” she added.

    “I have never understood agencies getting a benefit off of clients’ dollars,” she said. “It just rubs me the wrong way. It’s a fiduciary responsibility. They’re supposed to be helping me spend my money best. And that ‘s best for me, not best for them.”

    To be clear, Ms. Beaudry knows of no cases of her agency, Interpublic’s Initiative ‘s, being involved in rebates or gifts. But the chatter generated by the ANA survey still has her concerned. “Because we’ve been hearing some of the buzz, that piqued our curiosity again and has us inquiring again into the agency’s practices and looking for assurances,” Ms. Beaudry said, adding that Kao’s contracts require any rebates to be returned to the client.

    What is a rebate?
    While denying any knowledge of rebates occurring in the U.S. some media buyers contacted by Ad Age conceded that the subject is complicated. They noted new forms of payment or compensation add additional revenue and margin opportunities for media agencies but said that these deals aren’t rebates.

    Meanwhile, consultants and auditors maintain that while their use in the U.S. is limited in scope, rebates do exist. And some of the disconnect between agency and client can be explained by the fact that they usually come disguised as something else.

    Agencies, marketers and consultants alike agree that rebates aren’t a problem if they’re disclosed and fully and equitably passed through to clients. The problem is in defining exactly what is a rebate and what as a matter of fairness should be passed through.

    Much of the confusion — and much of the potential problem — may be that the deals don’t generally take the form of a straight cash bonus for hitting a volume threshold.

    “It’s not as overt or institutionalized as it is in other countries,” said Manuel Reyes, former CEO of Starcom Latin America and now CEO of media consulting and auditing firm Cortex Media, Miami. “This is being done in a very clever way.”

    Among those ways, he said, are agencies picking up fees from media companies for services such as research when the services may not really be delivered and the payments have been triggered by hitting a volume threshold.

    In other cases, he said, shops get a credit for early payment of invoices, whether the payment is made early, again based on a company’s reaching of a volume target.

    ‘Bad for the industry’
    Mr. Reyes said rebates often come in the form of free bonus inventory when a volume target has been met. Depending on how agencies handle this inventory, it could be an issue for clients. If agencies provide the inventory on a pro-rated basis to clients to reduce their costs, there’s no problem. If they essentially sell that inventory to other clients and pocket the money, there is. The latter scenario, he said, would only be an issue for clients who don’t require invoice backup to show what the agency paid for their media and periodically audit the books.

    Other times, Mr. Reyes said, rebates may ultimately flow through to shops when they are buying on behalf of clients from sibling units within their holding companies and the rebates accrue to those specialty units.

    Examples of this could occur at barter operations or agency trading desks, which use sophisticated demand-side platforms to buy digital inventory at discounted rates in real time. With the latter, it’s not clear what kinds of margins the agency-buying operations are making or the extent to which bulk buys may lead to incentive compensation for the trading desks.

    Matt Seiler, CEO of Mediabrands and one of the only media-buying executives to speak on the record about the rebate issue, said if they’re happening, “it’s bad for the industry.” Added Jacki Kelley, CEO of Univeral McCann, “We don’t arbitrage around clients’ investments in order to substantiate our own benefit.” She added, “In my 25 years on the media [sales] side, we provided rebates back at different volumes [of buys]. Media owners need to incentivize clients to spend more, but in the U.S. that money always went straight back to the client.”

    Often deals that Mr. Reyes characterizes as rebates take place at the holding-company level without executives at the individual agencies knowing.

    Lack of transparency
    Rebates may also flow into specialized holding-company entities, where they become even harder to track. In some of the more creative deals overseas, rebates pass into accounts but aren’t recognized as income essentially until the agency loses the client’s account and it’s closed. The practive creates a sort of entirely undisclosed insurance policy against business loss, though Mr. Reyes said he hadn’t seen such arrangements in the U.S.

    While he has an obvious interest in pushing media-audit services, Mr. Reyes conceded that rebate revenue streams can be set up to elude even the most thorough audit, ultimately making trust the only real guarantee for marketers.

    Alan Rutherford, a former Unilever media chief and now chairman of media-consulting firm Axiology, believes rebates, long common in Europe, have begun to migrate here as a natural outgrowth of European agencies expanding their foothold in the U.S.

    The main issue, he said, is that U.S.-based marketers aren’t familiar with the practices or how to manage them, though he believes they will soon learn.

    An executive in the out-of -home media industry, who described rebate practices as having become more commonplace in the U.S. outdoor industry in recent years, confirmed much of what Mr. Reyes described as the ways in which rebates occur. He asked not to be identified for fear of unleashing “an unspoken blackball situation,” noting that when executives of outdoor entities had spoken out against the practices in Europe, they saw their business dry up significantly.

    “The buying services will tell you they’re transparent,” he said. “And they posture that what you’re paying them for is quick pay. They say that you’re paying for research. They say that you’re paying for all kinds of things, when what you’re really paying for is for them to buy from you.” The executive said all the deals are positioned in a way that ‘s “legal and clean, but at the end of the day, if the advertisers knew all the ins and outs and the background, I wonder if they’d want in.”
