“Growing up together” with BRITANICA Park School
What was the situation when the client came to us?
In all likelihood, today is not the first of June, but a child’s holiday can be any day when he feels significant and valued while curiously exploring the world. That is why we accepted a cause as our own.
The first private park school in Bulgaria – BRITANICA Park School opened its doors in September 2019. The new generation school combines innovative teaching methods with a complete atmosphere for family environment and comfort. We liked the freedom and unadulterated behavior that the creators of BPS adhere to, developing the individual capabilities of each child.
What was our goal?
That is why four months before the start of the new school year and the first for BRITANICA Park School, we set our goals together. We knew we needed to reach out to potential parents and children to learn about the range of opportunities provided by BPS. Our priority was the completed forms for meetings and consultations, as well as actually registered children in different age groups.
What decision did we make and what approach did we use?
Which channels and formats did we bet on?
And if it is clear that children can always be found in the great adventures and on the playground, now it was time to talk to mom and dad. But this was not a meeting with the class. We searched for them on Facebook, Instagram, Google Search, Google Display (GDN, GSP + REM) and Premium articles in various media. We opted for the following formats: static banner, carousel, lead generation, posts, stories, Google Ads – HTML5 banners, short videos and articles.
What audiences did we use?
FACEBOOK AND INSTAGRAM
We targeted people with an interest in competitors, friends of the site’s fans, engaged users, parents, and job positions. We included audiences of people with similar interests and digital behavior of those who committed to the Facebook page and have already converted. The remarketing campaign was conducted with the following audiences: remarketing facebook engaged users, remarketing landing pages and those who watched at least 50% of the videos.
BRITANICA Park School has its own park, which brings children as close as possible to the ecological way of life. And speaking of eco – in the Google ecosystem we relied on search advertising in combination with display campaigns. Search advertising was structured based on the expected searches of users: the service that users search for; age of the child; competitors and brand keywords.
For display drips, we opted for several types of targeting:
- Interests – Parents; Interests related to baby and children’s products; Interests related to the specific services offered by Britanica;
- Placements – targeting advertising positions on specific sites that we believe are of interest to our target audience;
- Audiences , similar to those that have already converted, and those that the Google Ads system tells us are more likely to convert;
- Remarketing audience.
11% of all users who visited the site through one of the Google channels have performed one of the most important actions for us – sending an inquiry, clicking on the phone number or visiting the contact page. The highest% is reported in the search campaign, which includes only searches for private kindergartens in Sofia – 25%.
What conclusions did we draw?
Within three months, we were back to our student excitement, and this was not the old Back To School campaign that any marketer would think of. And now we take off our backpacks and take out our notes:
The search campaign was the main focus of the communication mix and with the highest priority of all channels. Our ads were active with excellent Impression Share between 80 and 97% in their various categories. The audiences with the most conversions and the highest Conversion rate are the remarketing audiences of users who have committed to the content, as well as users who have visited the landing page.
We have the highest CTR from Facebook posts – it reached over 23%. As expected, the greatest interest is in the “kindergarten” direction. In 58% of cases, users send a request after passing through only one communication channel.
