Rare Digital has been appointed as the lead digital marketing agency for tech startup University Cribs.

The student property search engine launched earlier this year and looks to help students across the UK find their future homes through an interactive platform.  The platform was launched to simplify the way that students search for properties online, whilst offering letting agents and student halls an effective and dynamic tool to help market their properties. The website is informative, giving student users content-driven articles regarding student life, guides on what to look for when finding their next home, and guides on their local area.

Rare digital will handle University Crib’s digital marketing strategy, SEO, media planning and buying.

Rare Digital’s Managing Director Lyndsay Broughton said: “We are extremely excited to be working with such an innovative startup and team that have such an in-depth knowledge of the student market”

The three founders of University Cribs have worked in the student marketing industry for many years, boasting a combined total of nearly 30 years experience.  Two of the founders, Jefferys and Samuel operate one of the largest UK student marketing agencies, running student events in over 46 cities across the UK. The data and reach on social media platforms they have built though their existing business provides the bedrock for University Cribs.

“The reach and quality of data that University Cribs has is incredibly impressive and provides Rare Digital with a fantastic foundation to create smart and compelling marketing communication that will grow University Crib’s proposition within the UK”

Founder and COO Daniel Jefferys said:
