Oxford Open Learning, a not-for-profit trust specialising in distance learning courses, has appointed Epiphany to handle its organic search.

The Jaywing-owned agency will be responsible for improving the visibility of Oxford Open Learning’s website as it targets an increase in students of 10%.

Oxford Open Learning’s owner and director, Jonathan Smith, said: “We’ve worked with Epiphany before so we knew that their knowledge of organic search would help us to reach the level of visibility and traffic we wanted to achieve our business goals.

“We provide very high quality home and distance learning courses with comprehensive support from our student advisers who ensure that students choose the right programme and teaching that is uniquely personal and attentive. We’re excited to see our outstanding work in education reflected in our online visibility and presence.”

Leeds-based Epiphany has also been recently appointed by Anglian Home Improvements, icelolly.com and TyresOnTheDrive.

Epiphany’s managing director Tom Salmon added: “Oxford Open Learning is an industry leader in distance learning and has an excellent reputation, so we see huge potential in how we can help them increase their online visibility to drive more students.

“We’re thrilled to be working with them again and as a sign of things to come; the partnership has already got off to a great start with a successful research campaign.”
