We know that getting people to hear about your product or service can be difficult in education. These are busy people and they have little time to read your marketing emails or answer the phone.
That is why PR is such a powerful tool in this sector.
The right story, featured at the right time, in the places where your audience is already looking for help can drive more action than any marketing message could.
“I can’t recommend The Influence Crowd highly enough. It's one thing to claim you know how to target schools but it's another to actually deliver on it. And to keep on doing it.”Graham Cooper
“They exceeded all our expectations.”Louise Young
“The campaign delivered exactly what we wanted… resulting in best prospect list we have had for a long while.”Adam Smith
There are two types of education PR. One that only focuses on the coverage itself plus a few tweets or posts to promote it, and the other that focuses very closely on your business goals.
At The Influence Crowd, it’s your business goals we concentrate on. That means we implement highly targeted, integrated PR campaigns that prove their value through incoming leads and changed opinions.
Using the knowledge and relationships built up over 15 years in this sector, we engage and delight your audiences through great coverage, shareable social content and by getting the key influencers behind you.
