Social Media for Education

Implement a social media marketing strategy to foster online conversations that translate into real world leads and sales.

Reach New Audiences with Social Media for Education

The social media landscape continues to evolve with new opportunities emerging every day. Social media has shifted from a world of high organic reach and viral BuzzFeed posts to a content distribution engine with powerful advertising and targeting capabilities. By deploying social media ads on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn, we can drive website traffic, leads and sales at the optimal phase of the education buying cycle to grow your market share.

Social Media Content Creation

Social media news feeds and the algorithms that shape them dictate who sees your organic content. Organic reach is decreasing as social networks expand their paid avenues. To overcome this challenge, it’s important to create, share and re-share content your audience loves. Creating a bevy of high-quality, strategic content assets can increase your following, impressions and engagements.

We develop social media advertising campaigns for platforms such as:

  • Facebook
  • Instagram
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn

Social Advertising

The days of double digit percentages for organic reach on Facebook are long gone. Instead, social networks offer edtech marketers the means to target the right audience with the right message at the right time. The sophisticated targeting offered by social media ads reaches people based on interests and other demographic traits, retargets previous website visitors, and draws on audience profiles to attract like-minded prospects. 

We create, implement and measure paid social campaigns that:

  • Create brand awareness
  • Drive website traffic
  • Generate leads and engagement

Social Media Events: Community Management

There’s more to success on social media than just publishing engaging organic content. By expanding its social media audience, your organization will foster a community of prospects, influencers and customers. This community can generate user-created content, discussions and ambassadors for your brand.

Measuring Success

As with any marketing campaign, your social media efforts are useful only if they can be measured. That’s why we create custom KPI reports for social media marketing campaigns that go far beyond impressions. We hone in on how these advertisements drive business results that affect your bottom line.

Metrics we track include:

  • Link clicks
  • Cost per link click
  • Cost per lead
  • Engagements
