Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure you make the most of every advertising dollar you spend in direct marketing. Put simply, the most bang for your buck. We achieve this by delivering a new standard of results for you – more informed prospects with a greater conversion and lifetime value.


Our Philosophy

Always keep learning. We’re the experts in direct marketing for higher education but because this is our chosen field we feel strongly that we must always be learning to incorporate the latest standards and practices so that our solution remains second to none.

Culture breeds success. We hire amazing individuals that all show the ambition to succeed. It is as simple as that.

Be passionate about the work. Driving tangible results makes us happy and we love what we do.

Tell a story. In everything we do, work and play, make today a day to remember.

We think it’s important to actually have fun at work. We like to spice things up a bit with ping-pong on our breaks, running across the street to Firehouse or ordering delivery from Pickleman’s (nom), planning Royals game tailgating parties, being entertained by the fans in the Cauldron at Sporting KC, and playing the Wii on Wednesday. Yes, we celebrate Wii Wednesday…doesn’t everyone?

While we have a bit of fun, we still strive to be our best. A day-in-the-life of an Inside Academics team member is pretty great. We get to help others achieve their educational goals and have a lot of fun doing so!


Our History

We’ve done it before and we’re doing it again. Inside Academics was founded by industry leading professionals and built on a foundation of trust, hard work and unparalleled results. Our foundation stems from our teams prior successes which include Deepstar Interactive. Deepstar (founded in 2002), was known as a leader for its ability to produce highly qualified prospects. Though a lifetime ago, Deepstar built a dynamic platform of more than 100 O&O properties that scored and routed prospects in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Deepstar’s assets were sold in 2005 and most of the original properties continue to rank well in major search engines.

As digital media and demand generation matured, we found ourselves with a unique skill set that allowed us to leverage our past successes. Building on our core foundation, and integrating a wealth of knowledge related to direct-to-consumer marketing we decided to revisit the industry we were so passionate about years prior.

In 2011, Inside Academics was founded. Today, the stars are aligned, particles are colliding and we instinctively find ourselves succeeding to great heights as we set a new standard in demand generation for Higher Education.
