Work with us on a school marketing plan which defines the target audiences for your state-maintained or independent school, identifies your school’s influencers and devises ways to reach them with effective print and digital admissions marketing.
Recruit more students and build your school’s positive reputation through an impactful school marketing plan which features the right mix of school social media, a great school website, events and excellent stakeholder relationships.
If part of your school marketing plan includes branding or re-branding, we offer low cost school and multi-academy trust brand solutions, which include clear onboarding guidelines to ensure that your school or MAT’s new identity is rolled out effectively through school signage, prospectus, website and all other school or multi-academy trust communications.
Our great value marketing plans for schools include research into your competitive environment, finding out what current and prospective families think of your school, as well as horizon scanning to identify future opportunities and threats. We present our plans as practical action points, which means you can deliver marketing in-house where you have the capacity, in order to maximise your budget.
Harnessing the power of digital marketing to reach, inform and persuade your target audiences is at the heart of what we do. No school or college marketing plan should ignore digital marketing which - with the right strategy behind it – will reach prospective parents, teachers and students in a well-targeted and cost-effective way.
Our integrated school and college marketing plans and advice include selecting the right social media channels to reach prospective parents, teachers, partners and employers linked to your strategic aims. We make sure you understand how to use measurement tools to review the effectiveness of your school’s social media strategy. We can also help you get a robust social media policy in place for staff, students, parents and carers.
We create low cost animated, video and other social media content; we can also advise on the full range of content creation tools to allow you to create social media content in house and maximise your school budget.
We plan, write and design email marketing campaigns that are GDPR compliant for teaching schools, multi academy trusts and others. We advise on CRM systems, including Hubspot to ensure you have a cost-effective way to manage and communicate with contacts as part of a comprehensive digital marketing plan.
We conduct SEO audits on your school or college website and also ensure that every school website we build is optimised for search. We plan and manage PPC campaigns, backed by thorough keyword and audience research.
We provide insightful market research for schools, multi academy trusts and FE colleges to help you target the right families and students, understand the competitive environment and horizon scan for new opportunities to market your courses and to build new partnerships with employers and others. With reference also to the latest policies and legislation affecting the education sector, we provide a detailed research report of our findings, along with analysis of what they mean for your school or college.
Using a wide range of sources including social media listening, mystery shopping, surveys, recruitment and population data we create a complete research picture of your school or college’s marketing challenges and opportunities.
Our analysis of the research provides you with the evidence to create a practical school or college marketing plan - whether your objective is to increase admissions, target new families, embed a new college merger or build partnerships with employers and others
