InfoMentor provide an innovative pupil assessment software to schools. They were new to the UK market and needed to build brand awareness in a fiercely competitive market.
I developed a digital marketing strategy and plan which outlined all the activities, timings and budget required for an integrated digital marketing programme, with a series of whitepapers at the core of the strategy.
There was a considerable amount of change happening in the education market at the time with the introduction of a new curriculum and removal of attainment levels, leaving schools in the position of creating their own methods of assessing against the new curriculum.
My goal for the whitepaper was to bring together all current best practice and thinking from thought-leaders within the sector. Through my online research (teacher forums and blogs) it became clear that schools were uncertain about what to do and felt very daunted by the prospect of creating their own assessment models. Seeing that a major conference had just taken place in London with experts in the sector sharing advice on this topic, I contacted the speakers and requested whether I can interview them for inclusion in the whitepapers. This strategy succeeded and I secured contributions from well-known experts.
I promoted the whitepaper with an integrated digital media campaign using PPC, social media, Opt-in email (a bought in list of 21k head teachers, assistant heads and deputy heads) and magazine advertising.
