Chicago Public Relations Company Paramount Public Relations Client Case Study
CampusBooks.com, the leading textbook price comparison website that tracks over eight million college textbooks. The online resource searches thousands of sellers and compares prices on new and used books, rentals and eBooks for students.
Chicago Public Relations Company Paramount Public Relations was tasked to launch a public relations campaign leveraging CampusBooks.com’s new data in time for back-to-school coverage. The public relations program goals were to:
- Generate media coverage of the company and its new data
- Position the website as a leading resource for textbook comparison; buying and selling
- Differentiate CampusBooks.com from its competition and position it as an industry leader
- Drive traffic to the website and increase sales
The public relations company’s campaign announced how COVID-19 severely impacted the back to school textbook industry according to data from Campusbooks.com. The data revealed that there were price increases, a new textbook purchasing boom and how rentals and used book sales declined.
