The top objective of Exceed isn’t to create fancy websites, though we do. It isn’t to push lots of traffic to our clients’ websites, though we do. It isn’t to make clients better known, though we do. Our goal is simply to fill up the beds of the residential programs we serve, and keep them filled! That is accomplished through developing multiple channels of incoming leads, as well as to help our clients become more effective in converting those leads into enrollments. We develop and manage each client’s marketing and advertising efforts, helping them also benefit from our firm’s ongoing testing of new tactics in an online world where things change daily.

HAVE NO FEAR…There are no long-term contracts and no strings attached. Exceed doesn’t nickel and dime its clients. Everything we do is included in our flat fee agreement.

To Generate New Leads, Exceed Develops World-Class Boarding School Directory Sites

To help build up our clients, we’ve acquired top websites and are creating others. Recent acquisitions and sites *under development include:

Exceed’s BEST CHOICE NETWORK™ Turns Your Disinterested Leads Into Referred Enrollments — You Get Paid for Them

Best Choice Network4c
Working with dozens of academies, private schools, boarding schools and therapeutic programs across the nation and internationally, we know that most programs and schools only enroll one out of fifty to one hundred inquiries they receive. Yet those inquiries may have cost the school hundreds of dollars to acquire. Through Best Choice Network, those leads that are not a good fit for the originating school or program are contacted again and then referred through our expert placement specialists to other client programs. Each of our placement specialists is a former admissions manager of a school, program or academy. For the leads that are placed elsewhere, the originating program gains a $500 reward. This helps them recover their marketing costs, so they can continue marketing and advertising to gain more and more qualified leads. For those that are referred, we work with the parent right up to the point of enrollment in another program, making it easy (a “no-brainer”) for the receiving school.

Emergency Placement of Expulsions – Best Choice Network also helps schools when they have to expel a student/cadet. This is one of the most volatile times for your academy, since parents who have gone through great expense and many hoops to enroll their child can become quite irate when their child is expelled. Such parents can diligently write bad reviews, or worse, if they are not handled properly. The most appropriate thing to do with such a parent is to quickly find another academy for their child, and handle all of the details to get the child moved over to that academy. That’s what we do through our Emergency Placement Team. We work nonstop to handle the entire “re-placement” process and smooth things over for the expelling institution.

–"Dr. Tim" Coldiron, Founder & Executive Director Promise Village: Home for Children

"We started using Exceed during a downturn in admissions. We saw an immediate impact and since we began using them we have not had a month go by that our beds were not full. The best investment we have ever made in the area of marketing. I highly recommend their services."
-Shawn Blankenship -- Director, Brush Creek Academy & New Lifehouse Academy

"Exceed has proven their expertise through our website design and traffic. With the help of Exceed, over 90% of our student body is from traffic created directly through our website. For many years, we relied heavily on outside sources to refer enrollments into our program. Not only has Exceed allowed us to convert more leads into placements, it has improved the quality of leads inquiring. We have a greater conversion rate and oftentimes have a wait list! Thank you Exceed for your efforts in helping us stay full through driving the appropriate clientele to our site!"
-Jim Jones -- Founder, Wolf Creek Academy

"My board and I have been amazed at the results. Since 2012, when we first started working with Exceed, we have doubled our annual income, allowing us to significantly increase the number of students we take in. We have also doubled the size of our staff, given much needed raises to our employees, upgraded much of our facilities, and even recently embarked on a major building project. I can honestly say that we are doing the best job we have ever done in helping troubled boys and their families. Partnering with Exceed has been a key factor in our success."
–Darren Reynolds, Executive Director, Teen Challenge Adventure Ranch

“I wanted to share how grateful our ownership team at Stonegate Center is for all of your work. I can honestly say that we would not still have our doors open if it were not your staff. You have helped us refine our website into a tool that families all over the United States can truly inform and educate themselves on regarding the nature of our program. When we came to you, our presence on Google was pathetic and now our inquiries have shot through the roof. We look forward to partnering with you for many years to come.”
–Robert Shyroc, Director of Development, Stonegate Rehab Center, Ft. Worth, Texas

"Exceed has helped us develop a comprehensive marketing platform that allows us to transcend across regional boundaries to reach families that are hurting and needing help for a child that is out of control. David has been working with us for about four years on every step of the way. It has been a wonderful pleasure to work with Exceed and the guidance that they bring to the table in our niche."
–Charles Steward, Gateway Military Academy

"The websites look amazing and we so appreciate the great work your team is doing to assist the parents in finding us. You are a gift to Teen Challenge. Thanks so much for the ministry you have in the kingdom of God in the technology driven world. You guys are truly a blessing to organizations like Teen Challenge. ”

“Exceed's work and our resulting calls are astounding. Thank you!”
David Bosley, Master’s Ranch Christian Academy

"Our target goal for enrollment was 120 boys. After Exceed started helping us, we actually hit 120 for the first time. So, admin found a way to squeeze in 4 more beds and we also filled those. Now I am able to refer more parents to other schools, and due to the increase in parents contacting us we are able to be more selective in the students we accept. We were also able to increase our tuition rate! Our entire program has improved so much thanks to Exceed."
-Scott Smith, Admissions Director, Agape Boarding School
