Education and training providers. 3 Top tips for your January marketing drive…
We all know that January is the time for new years’ resolutions when learning new skills, hobbies or languages is at the top of many people’s agenda. Now is the time to make sure that you’re at the top of the list when someone starts their search for a course or provider.
Take advantage of the new year drive to learn and be motivated by showing your potential new clients and students that you have the right courses and materials to help them achieve their goals.
Get in early. Very early. Get your marketing campaign out in the public eye, but do it quickly. From January 1st, people turn more inwardly and think about personal development and individual goal setting, meaning that they are far more likely to be looking for information about new programmes or courses. The same applies for businesses who are starting to set team goals for the coming year and will be looking for partners who can help them achieve their learning targets.
Sell the savings After Christmas, people are now swaying towards financial savings and considering cut-backs. We all have the tendency to go a little over the top with our Christmas spending, so January signifies to many the time to rest the credit card, and only take advantage of exceptional offers that are out there. Ensure your marketing campaign shouts ‘SAVING’ not expenditure. Include a January only offer to get people to act, and act now. Think a percentage discount, a ‘buy 1 get one half price’ or even a money back offer towards additional services.
Tap into key words and phrases You’re not alone with your January marketing campaign, so it’s important that you stand out from your competitors and from all the noise of advertisements and offers that bombard the internet. Think about the social media platforms available to you and how you can use key words, phrases and search terms to reach the right audience. Try your best to think like your target audience, what might attract them and what might they be searching for.
