Pardot For Educational Organisations
Pardot is a Salesforce solution that allows educational institutions to strategically qualify leads, create personalised marketing campaigns, and find out which marketing techniques work best. Pardot can be used to help market towards donors, students, future students and alumni!
We understand that educational institutions can find it difficult to nurture potential students and get them to enrol at their organisation. This is often a time consuming task that takes away time from organisations that stops them achieving their goals.
Having to manually contact leads and personalise their journey can cause issues, with no consistent touch points leads could be contacted at times that impacts them negatively and they could become annoyed. Inconsistent touch points makes developing leads journeys difficult and often incredibly difficult.
Rank and score leads
Pardot allows for leads to be scored, this is a method of assigning a numerical score to users based on their unique behaviour. The scoring system provides up-to-date feedback on their interactions with content such as emails, website pages and social media posts. Allowing for organisations to change the way they communicate with different leads based on their score, meaning highly scoring leads can be contacted quickly and enable nonprofits to develop them into donors.
Easily segment data
Segmentation allows for Pardot users to ‘slice and dice’ their contacts data into a list, meaning they can then target a specific segment of their database with certain marketing tools. For example, organisations would be able to send specific emails to individuals who meet a set criteria. Such as a certain age and location, this means that they would be targeting leads that are geographically close to the education centre and of an age to begin the application process. This could be done swiftly within minutes with Pardot, whilst doing this manually could take someone hours.
Pardot enables organisations to automate aspects of their marketing, allowing for certain actions to trigger specific marketing tools. For example, once a lead fills out a form on a website to gain access to content such as a webinar, Pardot could register this and automatically send them an email a few days after the webinar with more information about the webinar. This allows for lead journeys to be developed, utilising a number of touch points between the lead and the organisation. These automated contact points that are made at specific moments help nurture leads and increase the chance of nurturing the lead further and gaining a donation.
