The academic arena in the 21st century is extremely competitive. The costs of running and maintaining a school have risen drastically, and each year, it’s becoming harder to convince parents that choosing a private over a public school is still a sound investment given its rising cost. That’s why schools need to have a solid marketing plan to combat the challenges that they currently face.

Private school marketing campaigns aim to entice prospective students to come to your school and enroll. It is important to have a consistent strategy in place to keep your school's academic identity meaningful to your demographic in the long term. 

Keeping up to date on the new school marketing strategies and applying them regularly is critical if you like the school to excel. Luckily, companies like Cube Creative exist to support you. Cube Creative will be a dependable collaborator for the school's digital marketing demands, thanks to its wide range of sophisticated services. 

This article examines three big challenges to keep your eye on when it comes to marketing the school and ensuring its long-term success and how your school can work around them. We will go into who your target demographics are, how you can successfully communicate to them, and how you can keep their commitment to your educational brand through a strong online presence and advertising strategy.

Imagine for a moment you just started your own party planning business, and you are trying to find customers who would potentially use your services. Still, you don't know anything about marketing, directories, flywheels, and/or funnels. You do a quick Google search and find a company that you can pay to find some leads for you (a lead generating company). They have a plethora of established leads or potential clients, so they say. 

This company may have a website that offers free birthday cake recipes and craft wrapping bows ideas as a downloadable pdf. A prospect may enter their email address to access it and have it emailed to them. By entering their email, they agree (usually in the fine print) to have the email address shared with businesses in their area that offer these services. You are then handed (after paying a price) a lead for someone throwing a birthday party. The email and contact information may also be shared with other like-minded businesses who may be potential partners (craft businesses, entertainment, or bakeshops) or even your biggest competitors.

Jump back in your time machine to the year 1986. Think about what was popular and how different the world we are living in now is versus 34 years ago. 34 years ago computers were barely a thing, there was no such thing as the internet as we know it today or smartphones. Why is that small business still think they can market the same way as they did in the past? 

I have often said and will continue to say until someone can prove to me that traditional marketing for small businesses is dying. Traditional marketing is in your face, says look at me and don’t you forget about me! This is all in hopes that you remember them when and if you need them.

Learning to market in this new digital age can be tricky at best. While most people are out there doing their sales and marketing at level 10. What I want to help you do and show you what to do is, give you that little extra push over the cliff, and turn up your sales and marketing to 11!

In my previous posts, I have covered a lot of ground, from pillar pages and blogs to landing pages and social media. In this post, I want to summarize paid ads, primarily on display, search, social ads and pay-per-click.

I will be 100 percent honest with you, I am not a fan of paid ads or paid media. I run an ad blocker on most of my devices. Regardless of my personal experience or feelings on them, I will agree they have their place when it comes to overall marketing strategy. When clients ask me about paid ads or paid media, I will often equate them to a drug or a quick fix. They can help you get a quick boost in traffic and quickly fill the pipeline.
