Education marketing

  1. 1. Marketing of Educational Services
  2. 2. Education  Education in its broadest sense is any act or experience that has a formative effect on the mind, character, or physical ability of an individual.  Education is the process by which society deliberately transmits its accumulated knowledge, skills and values from one generation to another through institutions.
  3. 3. Need for Marketing Educational services  Need to ―market‖ their services has not really been felt by the educational sector  This is because there is always Demand>Supply  But in the recent years, there is a shift in trends
  4. 4. Cont…  Large number of institutions for specialized fields have been set up in the recent years for fields like Management and computer education  This has lead to increase in competition
  5. 5. Cont…  This makes them come face to face with questions like  Product differentiation,  product extension,  diversification  and service integration
  6. 6. Education as a service  Services are those separately identifiable, essentially intangible activities, which provide want satisfaction and are not necessarily tied to the sale of product another service
  7. 7. Cont…  Education as a service can be said to be providing an intangible benefit (Increment in knowledge, aptitude, professional expertise, skill) produced with the help of a set of tangible (infrastructure), and intangible (faculty expertise and learning) aids.
  8. 8. Points to be noted  A consumer may have tangible physical evidence to show for the service exchange transaction  But the actual benefit accrued is purely intangible in nature  Education is a service which is geared primarily to the consumer market
  9. 9. Characteristics  Intangibility  Perishability  Inseparability  Other
  10. 10. Intangibility  Education is an Intangible dominant service—Impossible to touch, see or feel Standardization is difficult  Lack of Standardization opens up marketing opportunity of differentiated need based course packages  Education as a service cannot be patented
  11. 11. Perishability  Production and consumption are simultaneous activities  No inventories can be made up Eg:- A lecture scheduled cannot be stored
  12. 12. Inseparability  It is impossible to separate a service from the provider  There is a need for the service provider to be present when the service is to be performed and consumed  This limits the scale of operations—The number of providers available would define the number of simultaneous performances possible
  13. 13. Other Characteristics  High Fixed cost, Low Variable Cost  Specialized and need based  Competition  Customer limitations  Lack of ownership  Heterogeneity
  14. 14. Marketing Strategies ::::Before Deciding on the Marketing Mix, Educational Institutes should answer certain basic Questions::::  What Business are we in?  Who are our customers and What benefits they seek?
  15. 15. Cont…  Criteria that students apply:-  Reputation of the institute  Number of applicants keen to enroll in the course  Past success rate of placement  Faculty expertise  Width of specialization offered  Infrastructural facilities  Fees
  16. 16. Cont…  How can we build or defend our competitive position?  What is our entry strategy?  How should we offer new service offers that help/strengthen the competitive position?
