Unlike a few decades ago, when the supply (of educational institutes) was lesser than the demand, today there is a proliferation of colleges, universities and other higher educational institutes that provide specialized education and vocational courses. They face stiff competition for the attention of tens of thousands of prospective students. Digital marketing, especially content marketing, can play a significant role in increasing the awareness, recognition and reputation of your institute.
Did you know that the education sector is among the world’s top industries that use social media in their marketing strategy? According to the Indian Market Research Bureau (IMRB), a large majority (about 80%) of students (and their parents, especially in India) use online sources to read up about educational institutes that they’re interested in.
