How B2B Marketing Resembles PPC Marketing in the Higher Education Vertical

Your marketing team is undoubtedly well versed in the differences between B2B and B2C marketing. As we’ve all learned, the B2B sales process is more complex than B2C, with a longer conversion path. Purchase decisions take longer and require group consensus. And after the sale concludes, the relationship between buyer and seller continues through product or service implementation and delivery. And in B2B, there’s always the tantalizing possibility of large future sales.

But every rule has its exceptions—and this is where PPC marketing in the higher education vertical gets interesting.

Because in many ways, PPC marketing for universities and colleges has more in common with B2B marketing than B2C—even though the target is individual consumers, not businesses.

Why does this matter? Because understanding the similarities and differences between B2B marketing and PPC marketing in the post-secondary education vertical can provide helpful insights for your own marketing efforts.

In my recent Search Engine Land column, I describe these B2B and PPC similarities and differences and give tips on how to leverage them. I invite you to take a look!

“It has absolutely been a pleasure to work with Group Twenty Seven. They really got to know our business and who we were trying to market to. Equally importantly to us is what type of business we wanted to avoid. Because of their thoroughness, they were able to give us great new ideas not only for PPC campaigns, but for ways to generate organic growth.

They’re as excited as we are to see the results as they come in. Since engaging with Group Twenty Seven, we’ve seen our ROI more than double, our click-through rate has nearly doubled, and our revenue from Adwords has almost tripled.

We couldn’t be happier with Group Twenty Seven and would recommend them to anybody except our competitors.”
