Some Common Education Marketing Questions

And We Have The Answers

  • What is online education marketing?

    Education marketing is a specialized branch of marketing that focuses on promoting educational organizations – school, college, university, online courses or educational management – with a variety of marketing strategies, just as you would for any other type of business. 

    Unlike marketing for a simple product like sneakers or smartphones, however, marketing for schools and universities requires a lot more thought, detail and transparency, since “customers” will be investing up to four years of their life and a lot of money into their education.

  • How are you different from other online education marketing agencies?

    Well, first things first: we don’t sell one pre-made marketing package to all the education technology companies that request consultations with us. 

    We offer highly individualized strategies based on digital marketing trends and unique business plans and goals. And we’re choosy about our clients, too. We want to ensure that every partnership we build is going to be meaningful, positive and successful for all!

  • How is digital marketing for education software companies different from traditional digital marketing for other businesses?

    Traditional digital marketing often has three main goals: making a sale, acquiring an email address and raising brand awareness. Your goals as an online education company may have some overlap with these objectives, but it is very unlikely that they’re exactly the same.

    Your online education business likely demands highly customized, nuanced digital marketing campaigns. As your business grows its educational offering, creates new products and services, and has more content to share, you’ll require better, more cutting-edge campaigns to secure new users. And that’s exactly what we develop here at Single Grain.

  • What are the best online education channels?

    Like all good digital marketing questions, there’s no stock answer to this question. It totally depends on what your goals are.

    If you’re B2B, you might prefer a platform like LinkedIn or using pay-per-click (PPC) advertising. If you’re B2C, you’ll want to build brand awareness and find new customers on more traditional platforms, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok.

    Our friendly and expert digital marketing team will guide you to the right platforms for your product.

  • How much money should I expect to spend per month on effective online education marketing?

    This is such a common question, but the truth is that there’s no one-size-fits-all answer. Your budget will depend on so many factors that are unique to your business, including its profitability, goals, cash flow and growth predictions.

    We can chat numbers and figures specific to your company during your consultation.

If you were unable to find the answer you’ve been looking for, do not hesitate to get in touch and ask us directly.
