How higher education providers are marketing to new students

Brochures and pamphlets were once the main source of information for potential new students.

Now with many higher education providers taking steps towards digital transformation, and students naturally looking online to research educational courses – other forms of marketing are taking precedence.

So how successful have they been in creating a presence on the main social networks?

The iPad’s greatest success: inspiring stodgy old industries

The iPad hype is in full swing. Anybody who checks Techmeme on a daily basis, for instance, will be intimately familiar with the latest iPad news and rumors.

While initial analyst indications are that the iPad is going to rock and roll, it’s still too early to say if it will truly live up to the hype long-term. But that doesn’t mean it’s too early to declare that it has done something remarkable because that it has. What has it done? Inspired stodgy old industries.

How digital marketing can help UK universities attract international students

Britain’s universities are working hard to attract international students. With the government announcing British Universities are to expect a £950 million cut in funding over the next three years, higher education institutions need to look elsewhere for financial support.
