Partnerships are a key go-to-market strategy for young companies focused on selling to K-12. The right partner can help a company get to revenue and scale more quickly. Defining the right partner is the challenge. There are a range of partners (including some that may be new to you), as well as a process to identify the right partner. Partners include colleges/universities, educational consultants, Educational Service Agencies (ESA’s) which have different names and business models by state. For example, in NY they are called BOCES. In Massachusetts they are called Collaboratives.

Search engine optimization, content marketing and finding the human element in marketing can provide a huge opportunity to reach your customer base, but if not managed properly, they can quickly become a hinderance, rather than a help. That is why it is so important to be able to identify quick-win opportunities within your campaigns and create an optimization plan.

Facilitator: Dave Parro, Vice President of Edtech Practice, Walker Sands Communications & Erin Jordan, Account Director, Walker Sand Communications
Location: Online
Time: 4pm - 5pm

In a world where the options are overwhelming and budget is limited it can be difficult for decision makers to know which way to turn. Content marketing can help organizations stand out and capture data to move potential customers through the nurture stream, while also sharing deeper insights as to why a particular product or type of technology is best. Research is a great place to start for a content marketing program because it provides market insights, can be used to feed other content that speaks to buyer pain points, provides a foundation for thought leadership, and drives media coverage and leads. Still, knowing what kind of content, how to develop it and what to do with it aren't easy.

In this session, participants will:
Explore options for content marketing, from the types of recommended content to specific suggestions for different kinds of actions
Examine how to build successful content that speaks to their audience
Identify methods for content promotion
Learn the key pieces needed for a successful content marketing program

Facilitator: Ben Kutylo, President, Fremonth Street Fund and Former Vice President of Strategic Partnerships, eSpark Learning
Location: First Republic Bank, 160 Federal Street, Boston, MA
Time: 6pm - 8pm

We all know how hard it is to acquire new customers in education. You spend tons of time, money and thought-space to do so. Once you have them, why wouldn’t you spend equal energy ensuring your partnerships are successful and customers maintain and expand their relationship with your company? In this session, we will focus on Customer Success and how to develop a sustainable strategy to engage existing customers and ensure their success throughout their journey with your company.

Participants will:
Understand why existing customers are critical to growth
Review the customer lifecycle and what’s involved in Customer Success
Examine the key components in developing a Customer Success strategy
Outline how to begin building effective, yet sustainable Customer Success “playbooks”
