Marketing in education: Differential strategies at the service of schools, colleges and universities

Currently, we are in the Digitalization Age, meaning that both children parents who are going to enter a new school, as well as students who are going to study for obtaining a degree or postgraduate, turn to the Internet to find the most appropriate option for his/her studies.

For this reason, schools, colleges, universities, and training centers, use marketing agencies to be present in the online environment. With a single search on Google, you can check many educational offers presented by this search engine.

The education sector is divided into two market niches: schools and universities or postgraduate centers. Each of them has its own public, but both have a primary objective: to get new students to their centers.

It is important to note that this sector is temporary, since it depends on the registration dates for the new course and, therefore, has little time to get filling all its available places.

This last feature is that with which the marketing strategy in education begins, which is divided into the following phases:

Phase 1 – Visibility: Before the registrations are opened

The actions for this phase have the goal of communicating to potential clients the moment of registration is approaching. At this point it is imperative to convey to users what the center offers, as well as a value proposition, differentiating it from the competition, and communicating it through different channels:

  • Newsletter: for this, it is essential to get a database according to the profile of the center target audience, to show them through emails “why choose your center.”
  • Facebook Ads: through this platform you can create segments and launch ads in image or video format, giving visibility to the center in this social network.
  • Adwords Display: it consists of creating sections according to the target audience (demographic data and interests) and showing them ads in images.

Phase 2 – Capture new leads: Open requests

In this phase, the target audience is in a stage of searching and comparing the training offer. Therefore, the main action is to be present in all online channels and communicate or offer promotions or benefits that become a value proposition so that potential customers are especially interested in the center and interact with it, either by going to the facilities, sending information requests or by calling.

  • Search in Adwords: the creation of campaigns serves so that, when someone searches what you offer, you appear in the first search results in Google.

In this case, we must not forget to design a landing page for these ads, to show the user our strong points. And, most importantly, we must offer different ways of contact (form, phone, WhatsApp and email).

  • Facebook Leads: it consists of generating ads with forms so that, with a single click, they can contact the center.

Phase 3 – Conversion: Closing of registrations

The primary goal of this point is to cover the places offered through the registrations. After the leads obtained in phase 2, users who have contacted and interested in the center or in the educational degree should be impacted with the following actions:

  • Inbound Marketing through emailing: consists of segmenting the database, generating a content strategy and sending newsletters according to the interest of the achieved lead until the goal is met: registration.
  • Remarketing in Facebook Ads and Google Adwords: to all the users who have interacted in the website, the key is to convince them to register, showing them ads in images.
