Effective digital marketing solutions to boost leads and grow your enrolments
Industry leading education marketing
A better way of reaching new learners
The way we learn has changed. Your education marketing needs to change with it.
As more and more people look to upskill, shift careers, and expand their horizons, standing out in a crowd of education providers is becoming an increasingly challenging task. Attracting the right students, driving consistent enrolments, and building a trusted brand within the education industry might all seem impossible – but they aren’t.
Whether you’re an adult education provider, tertiary institution, or a school that’s nurturing young minds in a primary or secondary setting, our effective process of strategy, branding, content, and insights will speak directly to all of your prospective students.
Case in Point – Stirling College
When looking to attract new students, schools need to communicate in ways that promise a unique experience aligning with the emotional needs and values held by prospective students and their families.
Stirling College, located in Melbourne, Australia, is a theological school offering courses with a strong focus on counselling and community care. As a niche educational institution, Stirling came to The Walk with no marketing strategy, and low brand visibility. Facing the challenge of low enrolment numbers, we partnered with the college and armed with the strategic goal of driving leads and increasing conversions, we got to work on obtaining new online and face-to-face enrolments for the coming school year.
Taking the time to create personas by understanding the ambitions and goals of the school’s prospective audiences, we built campaigns aimed at resonating with the emotional needs of each student’s life and career purpose. Using an omni-channel approach, we strategically marketed the school’s different courses to these target audiences. The collaboration resulted in a massive boost in student enrolments, and subsequently the school chose The Walk to roll out its annual marketing campaign via both online and off-line channels.
Engaging students and their families through genuine human communication is an integral part of enticing people to picture themselves studying at your school. This is just one aspect of how we establish brand awareness and drive enrolments for educational institutions.
Marketing solutions tailor made for the education sector
At The Walk, we understand that effective digital education marketing relies upon a balanced combination of engagement, trust, and competitive difference. With so many paths for students to choose from, appealing to your ideal learner requires a tried-and-tested marketing process – one that reinforces your unique brand identity and solidifies your industry position.
With a strategic roadmap that’s supported by finely-tuned content and crystal clear data, our education marketing process will ensure your next campaign is a success.
Take a closer look at our expert marketing process:
Building a trusted brand
It all starts with a story. By defining your culture, ethos, and business goals, we can establish your presence as an organisation that values learning and highlights your commitment to your students. This vital groundwork helps build an exceptional education brand that drives awareness, challenges perceptions, and creates an authentic emotional connection.
Meaningful content marketing
Creating an effective content marketing strategy is essential for maximising engagement with your target audience. Well-crafted content and an efficient publishing calendar are essential for capturing the attention of prospective students, whether it’s through your website, blog, social media, or any other channel where your audience might be.
Education marketing strategy
Education marketing strategy is all about understanding your prospective students and what makes them tick. This means identifying their personas, driving forces, and pain points. Our campaigns do this and then some, pinpointing your ideal audience and providing you with the right tools to reach them. Through focused messaging and an engaging brand story, we’ll help you increase the number of leads and enrolments for your organisation.
Effective insights and measurement
For many education brands, analysing and understanding data insights is a huge challenge. It’s no wonder it often gets put in the too-hard basket. The truth is, insights and measurement are integral elements of a results-focused approach. For education organisations who want to reach specific goals, whether it’s enrolments, leads, or just general engagement, understanding what works and and what doesn’t is crucial. As your trusted education marketing partner, we’ll help you collect, analyse and present data so you can make the informed decisions and continue moving in the right direction.
