Advantages Over the Once a Year Approach Personnel listings on school websites are updated 5 times a year on average. So when do you compile? The great vulnerability of the once-a-year approach is that you have to pick the one time you are going to make the effort. If you “scrape” websites before the new names have been added, you just updated your database with last year’s names. If you wait long enough for most websites to be updated, your database won’t be ready until long after the time you need the new and verified names.
Fresh New Names Make your brand one of the first they have heard from. The fastest way to get in front of them is through emails.
Fresh New Names Reach the educators who have joined the school most recently through periodic marketing campaigns. You could set up a campaign to run monthly or even weekly. Expand to a whole “welcome to the school” or “welcome to the industry” kind of campaign in which you are doing a multi- channel series using email, mail, and telemarketing.
Use Only the Most Accurate Data Select only names from Monitored schools when doing a less than an “all names available” promotion.
Use Only the Most Accurate Data Since there is no additional charge for these names, you are effectively getting a premium list for your campaign. Why not start with the best and most accurate names?
School Opening The Monitor Service is the only way you can get up-to-date names at the start of the school year.
School Opening Most databases still contain the last school year’s names. The greatest changes in personnel happen from July to October.
Spring, the Most Important Period Monitor names become more valuable as the school year goes on, especially compared to teacher files that are updated once a year in the Fall.
Spring, the Most Important Period Many marketers mail/email most heavily in the Spring. This is the time of year when our monthly updating cycle will have made 7 or 8 months of cumulative changes in the current school year to become the only truly accurate database available.
Monitored is a School Selection You can use the Monitored school selection in combination with any other available selections and be assured of the most accurate names and emails available!
