The facts are startling. This year alone, nearly $600 billion will be spent on digital advertising. And by 2032, just 8 short years from now, that figure is expected to surpass $1.25 trillion.
That’s an incredible amount money fighting for the attention of a limited number of people… And for some, it’s becoming a very big problem.
You see, as more and more advertisers flood the digital marketplace with nonstop messaging and a seemingly endless supply of cash, grabbing the eyeballs of today’s consumer has become far more difficult than it used to be.
As a result, and you may have been experiencing this yourself, the costs associated with digitally advertising your institution and its programs have probably risen drastically… while returns (conversions) have likely diminished.
In fact, just a few years ago, you could have a Google Ads campaign running in the Edu space, and see clicks for perhaps $0.10…
Today, that same click costs an average of $4.10.
And, in 2012, the overall average conversion rate for digital marketers was estimated at 8.2%. Today, it’s less than half that; in some cases, perhaps a tenth of that.
This, even as targeting and messaging have become way more precise.
But like we said up top, more than double today’s money will be flooding into digital marketing by 2032.
And by the time that happens, the KPIs we see today may look like the “old days” by comparison.
Yes, It’s getting tough out there and it may only get tougher.
So, with so much competition in the digital space, ad costs rising and conversions dropping, you have to wonder if there’s a better way to market your school…
