Incorporating Bing Ads into a comprehensive digital marketing strategy is becoming increasingly popular among private schools.
While there are dozens of free digital marketing tools available from Google, school marketers have a lot on their plate and can’t be expected to master them all. We narrowed it down to the top 6 that we recommend: Google Analytics 4, Google Tag Manager, UTM Codes, Google Search Console, Google Trends, and Google Business Profile.

Independent school marketers work extremely hard to get qualified prospects, or “leads,” into their pipeline. Whether you’ve purchased lists, launched a digital marketing campaign, or planned an on-ground admissions trip, building a lead funnel is a huge investment. That is why keeping those leads engaged and moving through the funnel by way of email marketing is a critical tactic for schools.
According to data by Nutshell, it takes an average of three to four emails before getting a response from a lead—but with those long admission- and marketing-team to-do lists, sending each lead regular communication can be a challenge.
Here’s how your school can develop an email marketing strategy to nurture leads—for FREE!, maximize your efforts, and ensure prospects take those next steps to visit, apply, and enroll.

Here are some steps you can take to optimize your landing page, drive conversions, and maximize that paid click.

You may be one of the many schools wondering what happened to Google Reviews.
