Here’s the story behind how we transformed an emerging IELTS institute
in Trivandrum into a popular centre attracting students in large numbers.
“ I started Cosmo with the vision of setting the trend for IELTS coaching in the state. With my unique teaching techniques, I was able to help my students achieve far more than what they dreamt of. However like any startup, I had my share of initial setbacks in getting myself established as a sought after institute offered quality education. My institute was not known to many, so I did not receive the student number I was expecting. That is when I heard of ATEES and their expertise in online branding and marketing. I decided to give it a try, and I was amazed at the results. Within a few months of using their services, I started getting a stream of students pouring in from all corners of the state. Today Cosmo is one of the best rated IELTS coaching centres in Kerala, thanks to the diligent promotional services and support offered by ATEES.”
Cosmo Centre, Trivandrum came to us looking for a solution to boost the institute’s popularity on the online platform. The institute already had a website and a facebook page, but both were not generating leads as expected. The website also did not rank well in relevant Google searches. Considering the nature of the business (a coaching institute), we had to think of a strategy that would make sure that the institute comes up at the top in the list of search results conducted by IELTS aspirants browsing the internet for quality coaching centres in Kerala. We had a three-pronged approach to the problem:
After extensive keyword research, the website and facebook content was optimised for better search engine visibility. The ranking of these pages increased as a result.
We created informative and entertaining videos about the institute, and distributed them through popular channels, promoting the courses effectively to a wider audience. Actual student testimonial videos, edited by us to make them more appealing had a profound effect in creating a sense of trust and motivating more students to enroll in the institute.
We created a great Google presence by encouraging all students (past and current) of the institute to submit their original reviews. A high Google rating helped the institute to appear prominently in Google Maps and stand out as a trusted educational centre.
Within a few months of using our SEO and marketing efforts, more enquiries started coming in and in no time, the institute was running in full capacity. The revenue increased by 40 % in a single year. Today Cosmo Centre is an institute in high demand thanks to its well-established teaching methodology made popular through digitization by ATEES.
