EDUCATION & PROFESSIONAL BODIES
Get strategic insights for your higher education or professional body organisation
In the competitive world of higher education and professional bodies, you need to be sure you’re focusing your time and attention in the right places. It’s about targeting your sales and marketing activity towards a new (or existing) audience who would be most interested in your offering. Working towards goals that are too broad or similar to your competitors’ can result in a low return-on-investment, so it is important to draw on data based on the size and demographic of your potential students or members.
How we help
Using our purpose-built segmentation tool HuPa, we can group students and employees by similarities in what motivates them, what might stop them engaging with you, and what kind of messages and communication style they’ll respond to best.
Our brand tracking will help you find out if your students or members see your business in the way you’d like them to. Using a mix of lifelogging techniques and regular consumer surveys, we explore people’s awareness of and attitudes towards both your category and specific brand.
Price and proposition testing
Our price and proposition testing gives you a clear picture of how the market will respond to your idea, which audiences are most likely to engage, and what changes might be needed to get people to buy in. Further proposition testing then helps you know how to frame the offer.
Case Study: The Institute of Directors Membership Offering
We helped The Institute of Directors reshape their membership offering to grow their business and attract new members. They’d devised three membership packages and needed our price and proposition testing to discover how attractive these different membership options were, and whether they needed refining.
Our insights: How to increase student enrolment with segmentation
Student segmentation is a powerful way to get the insights you need, since it allows you to group audiences according to their pain points or unmet needs, rather than simple demographics. Here we’ll explain some strategies for increasing student enrolment, using segmentation to drive success.
