ANALYTICS 101 (Google Analytics)

WHEN & WHERE:

TRAINER:

Luke Hay (Analytics & User Experience (UX) author and consultant).

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP/SEMINAR:

The need to master analytics is obvious but this is often a neglected area with poor reporting and little understanding of what is and isn’t working, leading to wasted effort and budget and poor communication.

One of the great strengths of digital is the analytics and insight it can provide into how resources are used. By learning how to use analytics more effectively you can dramatically improve your marketing, admissions and communications.

Developed for those working in Education and delivered by analytics expert Luke Hay, this one-day ‘hands on’ workshop has proved very popular in recent years and is ideal for those who are either keen to learn what Google Analytics (GA) has to offer or who are already using it but want to start doing more than just tracking the number of visitors and most popular pages.

This course will give you an introduction to Google Analytics and help to demystify your data.

By the end of this Masterclass you will have a good understanding of all the standard reports the tool offers and return to your institution with the confidence you need to analyse, review and report on your own activity and that of any suppliers… improving your digital communications (identifying and addressing problems and increasing your return on investment) and enabling you to explain and demonstrate progress to colleagues, governors and trustees.

The workshop will include:

  • Google Analytics set-up
  • Views, Filters
  • Demographics information
  • Internal Search
  • Using and understanding all the main GA reports

(LEVEL GUIDE: Introductory/Intermediate.)

CONTENT – STRATEGY

WHEN & WHERE:

TRAINER:

Alta Justus (Digital Marketing Consultant, The Virtual Marketer).

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP/SEMINAR:

According to content experts, HubSpot, 53% of marketers say content is their top inbound marketing priority.

In fact, despite all the content out there, 70% of marketers plan to create MORE content next year than they did this year! Why? Because of the power of content marketing:

“Content marketing generates over three times as many leads as outbound marketing and costs 62% less.” CMI, Oct 2017

Content Marketing has been a buzz phrase for some years now, with studies indicating the most effective content marketers have a strategy… yet many Education marketers still don’t comprehend the power of content and how it can help achieve their own marketing goals.

Join us for this hands-on workshop where we’ll show you how a well-developed content strategy can (amongst other things) reinforce your institution’s brand presence, increase your website traffic and grow your admission numbers.

Over the workshop you will learn:

  • how to use content to achieve your marketing and communications goals – including increasing your admission numbers;
  • the steps to creating and implementing a sustainable content strategy;
  • where to find inspiration for your content and how to execute it in a way that resonates with parents and pupils;
  • how to work smarter (not harder) when delivering content;
  • ways to effectively promote and measure the success of your content.

(LEVEL GUIDE: Introductory/Intermediate/Advanced.)

ABOUT THE TRAINER:

Alta is a freelance Digital Marketing Consultant and former Director of Marketing at FinalsiteUK (previously School Website). Over many years working in digital communications she has developed a deep understanding and insight into the Education marketing space.

An equally creative and analytical Digital Marketing Consultant with over 17 years education and commercial marketing experience, Alta is passionate about helping Nurseries, Schools, Colleges and Universities succeed in the digital arena.

Alta’s own commercial marketing successes – along with the countless institutions she has worked with – allow her to share a wealth of hands-on, relevant marketing experience and, conscious that time is precious for the average Education marketer, her practical sessions sieve through the digital noise to ensure participants always walk away with something of value to add to their own marketing repertoire.

£170 (London UK). The price includes training, refreshments, training notes and a certificate of attendance.

You will learn how to review and analyse your web presence, to better understand the user experience (UX) and journey and to identify changes that might lead to a higher conversion rate.

You will then learn to set-up a prioritised split testing plan to monitor and test the impact of planned changes to your online content and how to analyse, report and share findings from the tests to inform your marketing, admissions and communications strategy.

The workshop will provide an introduction to ‘Conversion Rate Optimisation’ (CRO) and give you the basic insights and techniques to begin to implement CRO best practice in your work and that of your colleagues, including:

  • Explanation of the CRO process;
  • Analysis and why it’s important;
  • Calculating ‘leakage’ on a website;
  • Removing ‘blockers’ and increasing persuasion;
  • Creating and running a test roadmap;
  • Different split test methods;
  • How to set up and run split tests;

HOW TO TELL YOUR STORY

WHEN & WHERE:

TRAINER:

Chris Harding (Content Consultant).

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP/SEMINAR:

In our connected world, parents and students are looking for learning experiences and institutions which align with their needs, goals, ideas and philosophies… but in an increasingly competitive space many Nurseries, Schools, Colleges and Universities fail to stand out from the crowd.

Talk of academic achievement, teaching quality, facilities and opportunities and a list of alma mater can be all too familiar to prospective parents and students considering different options… that’s where clearly articulated vision, mission and values statements can switch the focus of your establishment – enabling new conversations about direction, purpose and ethics.

This workshop will help you tell the story of your organisation in a bolder, more relevant way that will entice and engage pupils, students and parents… and your staff and students will have a clearer understanding of what’s expected of them.

The course will include a mixture of theory and practical exercises aimed at helping you to review and revise (or, indeed, create) your vision, mission and value statements and an understanding of how to use them; you will you learn:

  • The importance of stating why your organisation exists and how you’re going to achieve your goals
  • How the corporate and charity sectors use vision, mission and values statements to great effect
  • Which educational organisations are doing this well (and which aren’t)
  • How to start creating your own set of statements
  • Who to involve and how
  • What to avoid
  • How to use these statements throughout your establishment – not just on your ‘About Us’ page

(LEVEL GUIDE: Introductory/Intermediate/Advanced.)

ABOUT THE TRAINER:

Chris is an award-winning freelance Content Consultant. He helps a variety of clients say the right things for the right people at the right time and in the right place.

His expertise lies in producing brand language guidelines, messaging frameworks and vision, mission and values statements.

From International Financial Services to Education and Local Charities, Chris helps uncover how organisations and brands should speak, say what is needed and tell their story.

Chris is also a trainer and public speaker – giving talks on content strategy, brand language and content design for the EMCDigital 2016 FORUM and Virgin Start Up events.

His work has recently won the Grand Prix Award from Media Week and been nominated for the UX UK Awards 2017. He’s previously scooped The Lovies Silver Award, The Lovies People’s Choice and the Insurex e-Business Awards.

ONLINE ADVERTISING – PAID SEARCH

WHEN & WHERE:

TRAINERS:

Matthew D’Arcy (Education Digital Marketing Consultant) and Peter German (Marketing Director, Frensham Heights School).

ABOUT THE WORKSHOP/SEMINAR:

This full-day seminar will introduce ‘Paid Search’ advertising, ‘Display Advertising’ and ‘Video Advertising’ with Google AdWords and Bing Ads.

Whether your budget is large or small… whether you wish to reach parents, students, alumni and/or others (for facilities letting etc) at a given location or to target them in a wider catchment area locally, regionally, nationally or internationally… Online Advertising is the most effective marketing tool for any Nursery, School, College or University.

Instead of continuing with a ‘hit and miss’ approach to your marketing, student recruitment and admissions using traditional media (newspapers, magazines, directories and outside advertising)… discover the incredible opportunities for promoting online, from reaching and engaging key audiences through to converting them into enquiries, prospectus requests, Open Day registrations and, ultimately, enrolments.

Cost effective, precise, accountable… Online Advertising offers huge potential and currently only a small number of institutions in Education are taking advantage of it… with the majority simply reacting to sales calls from media sales and wasting budget as a result.

Over this full-day seminar you will learn the basic principles for planning, setting-up and managing Online Advertising campaigns with Google AdWords and Bing Ads across different types, including:

  • Search Engine advertising
  • Display advertising
  • Mobile advertising

This stimulating, thought provoking course will cover account set-up and linking accounts (Analytics, Search Console etc) and basic campaign strategy, targeting, advertising creative, landing pages, campaign management, conversion rate optimisation and analytics.
