Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) July 03, 2009 -- Marketlinkx Direct announced today it has executed an Agency of Record agreement with Morris Brown College, one of the nationâs oldest historically black institutions.
Under the provisions of the Agreement, Marketlinkx Direct will be responsible for marketing and recruitment initiatives at Morris Brown College. The company is currently deploying a full-service marketing campaign including online and offline applications, events and multimedia on behalf of Morris Brown College.
"This agreement formalizes the relationship between Marketlinkx Direct and Morris Brown College and enables the marketing and recruitment services expertise of our company to fully support the resurgence of Morris Brown College,â said Ezell Brown, CEO, Marketlinkx Direct Inc. "Our company holds a leadership position in educational marketing in the industry and this partnership with Morris Brown College provides us with a great opportunity to further extend our services for the benefit of this hallowed institution, its students and its community,â added CEO Brown.
âThis is an enormous step in the right direction for Morris Brown College,â said Dr. Stanley Pritchett, acting President of Morris Brown College. âOur plans for the resurgence of this institution incorporate introducing a global market to the benefits of the educational opportunities offered at Morris Brown. An effective outreach campaign to this global market is a must. Because Morris Brown has been challenged for adequate resources, marketing has taken a back seat in our priorities. We have been using our resources for qualified faculty members who can develop a 21st century program for those who come to study at Morris Brown. With Marketlinkx Direct assuming the responsibility for a full service marketing campaign, we hope to reach the goals of increasing our enrollment for this fall semester,â Dr. Pritchett added.
