In the rapidly changing education world, there are new demands on your company both in how you talk to your customers and how you deliver your products. While you want to stay current with the latest marketing and classroom technologies, you also need to pay attention to your organization’s fiscal health and sustainability. In this half-day seminar, you will hear from industry leaders on how to make smart decisions and investments in product development and marketing that will allow you to meet your customers’ needs without compromising your company’s future.
Session 1: Embracing digital platforms without busting your bottomline
There is a constant call to increase digital use in the classroom—as well as a rising number of new platforms to contend with. The question isn’t how to keep up with the constant changes, but whether or not you should even try. This presentation will offer advice on how to assess your product development process, analyze the potential financial outlay and return, and make strategic decisions about what’s best for your company and customers.
Session 2: How to make social media work for you
Social media seems like a fantastic tool to help your reach educators. Often the people you talk to, though, aren’t the ones making the final purchasing decisions, and the tremendous time investment required by online communications may not result in equivalent sales. However, as the influence grows of classroom teachers, parents, and even students on product selection you need to keep your brand at the forefront. Listen to an expert on social media talk about what to use, when to use it, and the true measures of success in online marketing.
