Maximizing Academic Reach Through Strategic Digital Marketing and PPC Ads
PPC Ad Management
Improve Brand Reach and Conversions at Lower Cost
Our client, driven by a commitment to quality education, sought to refine its digital marketing strategies. Their objective was to optimize online visibility and attract prospective students through targeted digital campaigns.
1. Broad and Unfocused PPC Campaigns:
The initial PPC campaigns suffered from an unrefined approach, targeting broad audience segments without specificity. The consequence was a high bounce rate and an abysmally low conversion rate, indicating a lack of engagement with the content. Metrics revealed a staggering 70% bounce rate, indicating that the majority of visitors left the website without interacting further. The conversion rate hovered around a meager 0.5%, highlighting the campaigns’ inefficacy in driving meaningful actions.
2. Ineffective Bidding Strategies:
The bidding strategies employed were inadequately optimized. This resulted in overspending on irrelevant clicks, diminishing the budget’s efficiency. The Cost Per Click (CPC) was significantly higher than the industry average, leading to budget depletion without commensurate conversions. The CPC was $2.50, almost 30% higher than the industry standard, causing a strain on the marketing budget.
3. Limited Online Visibility and Low Engagement:
The lack of targeted campaigns led to limited online visibility, rendering the EdTech company virtually invisible to its ideal audience. Social media engagement was alarmingly low, with a mere 0.2% engagement rate on Facebook and Twitter. The absence of a coherent online presence diminished the company’s brand authority, resulting in missed opportunities for student inquiries and applications.
Metric: Low Impressions and Clicks in targeted regions and demographics indicated the lack of online visibility.
To address these challenges and meet the goals, we devised a comprehensive strategy:
