No matter what form of offline advertising you use, your audience is going to search engines like Google to learn more. Today it is more critical than ever for your school’s website to appear when your target audience is looking for relevant information. Online advertising technology is advancing so quickly that keeping up with the changes is its own full-time job, and that’s before you have time to manage your Facebook page and Twitter feed.
The purpose of this session is to educate marketers about the basics of Pay Per Click (PPC), Search Engine Optimization (SEO), and Web Analytics. The goal is to understand how to drive traffic to your website, measure the results, and optimize your website to maximize conversions -- in most cases, getting interested prospects to fill out a lead form and ultimately apply to your school. At the end of this session, attendees should come away with actionable recommendations that they can implement upon returning to the office.
You don’t have to understand web programming to be a great online marketer, and even if you are already working with an agency, it helps to be educated on the basic principles at work. It’s important to know the right questions to ask and the right metrics to focus on. Online marketing is extremely measurable, so you can focus your time and resources on what’s working and test different variations quickly and effectively. Learn how to attract visitors and convert online traffic into applications.
