What we do
every corner of the world.
My old college professor always said, “Teaching is the noblest of jobs.”
Over the years, I’ve grown to believe that building bridges between student and teacher while enabling affordable education, is even nobler. Our strong culture guided by a clear purpose is what allows my team at Grow Enrollments to deliver on this every single day.
Our Core Values
a work environment where teams are free to create, innovate, and take fun seriously.
5 core values…and we’d like to share them with you.
Every day brings a new challenge, oftentimes things that we are not able to foresee. As a team, we take on what we can control and commit to doing our best in every situation to produce favorable results.
We commit to meeting our chosen goals, as understanding our success will help the organization meet its own goals.
Coined by William Taylor (2011), Grow Enrollments embodies being “humbitious” – humble and ambitious.
Our team operates under a sense of humility by never sitting on our laurels and continuing to strive for improvement – staying competitive.
At the same time, we stay ambitious by always reaching for the stars. We continue to chase our purpose of keeping learning alive in every corner of the world, even though it sounds impossible.
Our team members embody openness to create steady channels of conversation. We understand the immense value of constant and meaningful talks.
By being open, our team members raise issues as they arise and are not afraid to point out problems even if it leads to conflict. We build trust and work well together when we can rely on each other to be honest with feedback.
From assistant to owner, everyone in Grow Enrollments treats each other with the same level of respect.
In respecting others’ opinions and point-of-views, we create a safe space and enable each other to have a voice to share ideas.
By respecting each of our team members, we accept all of who they are – age, gender, race, and diverse backgrounds – empowering our teams to take on complicated issues with creative solutions.
At Grow Enrollments, our business thrives on real-life data. We make decisions based on facts, peer-reviewed research, real experiences, raw data, and statistics from reputable sources.
By being data-driven, our team members understand the importance of proper research, team retrospectives, and doing experiments or running trials to test hypotheses and validate assumptions.
We use Google’s proven-and-tested OKR system to convert our goals and ambitions into data we can use to fuel our growth.

About Our Founder
Benjamin Arabov has been in the business of making industry-leading wins in the digital marketing space for the last 10 years.
In 2016, he founded Grow Enrollments – which started on a humble capital investment of $1,500. In 2020, the company passed $6 million in revenue. Shortly after, Ben earned the coveted Forbes 30under30 award for 2021.
These days, you can find Benjamin at his desk with 6 screens or chatting with his badass crew of ads-obsessed marketers.
Chief Executive Officer
As a self-made barista, Mickail is a staunch believer that world-domination plans come together successfully after a steaming cup of black coffee.
When he’s not spending hours nerding out on making foolproof strategic decisions and keeping Grow Enrollments on top of its game, Mickail relaxes by creating unrecognizable (he calls it abstract) Play-Doh sculptures with his super adorbs son. Oh and don’t forget the regularly painful encounters involving his toes and Lego pieces. Fun times indeed.
With over 15 years of experience orchestrating teams that turn brands into winners, Grow Enrollments is poised for sustainable growth (the kind you don’t dread) with Mickail leading the pack.
Preston Kwok, aka PK, (pronunciation is much easier than it looks) is living in beautiful Salt Lake City Utah, where he currently can’t buy his favorite food because it’s a Sunday….
When he isn’t busy cooking up the next big idea, he’s either enjoying quality time with his amazing wife, son, and daughter, working on his cars (fast and furious style), optimizing his game on the golf course, or cooking up the best Japanese food you can find in the state of Utah.
With over 10 years of full-funnel digital marketing experience, helping businesses grow their online revenues, and 32 years of keeping it real.
By day, he helps enroll more qualified students for less dollars through paid media, by night, he helps keep his carbon copy kiddos fed and happy. Not all heroes wear capes.
There’s way more to Max than just seemingly living and breathing for better user experience and CRO. We have a running theory that he may very well have been The One to pioneer the hype around remote work. For over 14 years now, Max has been enjoying life as a digital nomad–before it became every millennial’s fantasy work setup.
These days, when he’s not appreciating the majesty of Vietnam while riding his beast of a bike, he leads Grow Enrollments’ CRO team and builds strategies to help our clients reach their next level of web performance.
As a shameless fanboy of data and user psychology, Max remains our team’s poster guy for big ideas and all-time-high conversion growth.
Rebecca (resident connoisseur of all activities outdoors-related) thinks it’s unbe-leaf-able when people don’t adore hiking, chilling on the beach, dining al fresco, and admiring the night sky.
When she’s not wishing that the human body would live off sunshine and being in nature, Rebecca saves and grows businesses one badass Google & Bing ad at a time. With over 18 years of digital marketing expertise, Grow Enrollments’ clients do not second-guess handing over their business’s future to Rebecca’s genius.
According to Urban Dictionary, “Marc with a c is a name given only to the best. Marcs don’t come along often but when they do, hold onto them.”
Marc lives on Staten Island. Yes, he takes a FREE ferry home every night. On weekends, you can find Marc on the field…well, the paintball field. Believe it or not, there is such a thing as a professional paintball player, and yes, Marc is one of them. He now travels the country and competes for fame, riches, and glory. For some reason, the riches haven’t come yet, but he’s working on it.
Marc knows his life sounds super exciting. But everyone must have something that keeps them level-headed so they can fit through office doors. That’s where Marc’s career as an Agency Lead comes into play.
His competitive background explains why he only settles for the highest quality of enrollment performance and is always teaching himself the next skill to stay ahead of the game. Digital marketing is just like paintball: if you blink, your competitor could take you out.

A guy with many interests, Jared currently lives with his wife, daughter, and son at the foot of the beautiful mountains of Northern Utah. Don’t let the straight-laced look fool you. At a moment’s notice, he’ll let his hair down (well, figuratively speaking anyway), and bust out some Bon Jovi on karaoke night.
When he’s not putting his 10+ years of paid search experience to work for his clients, you might find Jared at the gym, out riding the trails on his mountain bike, hosting friends and family for a scratch-made Mediterranean meal, or noodling (somewhat badly) on his guitar.

This bubbly PPC lover grew up in Croatia (That place where the King’s Landing is). For a European, there is nothing quite like sitting down in a cafe and just watching the world go by.
Mia loves a proper #cupofgetstuffdone, and she’s talking about real coffee, not a chai tea latte, extra hot with unicorn tears, a touch of vanilla syrup, and 3 pink sprinkles.
When she’s not obsessively talking about coffee, you can find her breaking enrollment records while maximizing ROI for her education clients. Mia feels truly blessed by the PPC Gods to be part of the Grow Enrollments gang.
JAMES WINSTEADVP of Marketing at LA Film School
We’ve been a client for several years now. They’ve been so great to us that we now think of them as more of a partner than just another client. Since our main focus is SEM, we can’t tell you how refreshing it is to work with a scrappy, knowledgeable team that, just like us, is actually willing to put in the effort required for reaching performance goals.”

Week by week, we can really see results! We are getting more leads from Google than we were before Grow Enrollments at no extra cost in our ad spend. Within the first 90 days, we could already see more good leads coming in.”
