How Targeted Lead Generation Helps Meet Performance Metrics in Workforce and Education
How Targeted Lead Generation Helps Meet Performance Metrics in Workforce and Education

What exactly is lead generation? It’s the process you use to capture the interest of prospective target audiences like students, job seekers, youth and/or employers so they engage with your workforce or education organization. Having an opt-in form on your website is a foundational starting point for lead generation efforts; these are the forms site visitors complete with their contact information along with areas of interest so that you can follow-up with them. But, there is so much more you can do strategically to capture the interest of specific market segments that you need to engage in order to meet your performance metrics.

For example, depending on your mission, perhaps you’d like to attract dislocated or low-wage workers or members of underserved communities. These “segments” identify who you’d like to engage, but to motivate them to take action you need to know why they would or would not engage with your organization. Effective lead generation is about finding out the emotional drivers of your different types of consumers to increase their interest levels and influence them to take action. This leads to tailoring the right message to the right market segment in order to increase interest.

CaseIn this recent case study, FCM details how this is accomplished by diving into a prospect’s decision-making process to propel them to take action. The case study highlights a regional project among 14 community colleges for a career education campaign that yielded more than 550 leads. This case study will be presented in the fall 2019 for those of you attending the California Community College Association of Occupational Education.

How to Leverage Digital Transformation Trends for Exceptional Customer Service Environments

Digital transformation marks a radical rethinking of how an organization uses technology, people and processes to fundamentally change business performance, says George Westerman, MIT principal research scientist and author of Leading Digital: Turning Technology into Business Transformation. While it’s a standard business practice for private-sector companies to maximize technology, public-sector organizations have taken more time to fully embrace its power, including those in workforce development.

Two critical areas that are important for workforce organizations to be successful are relationship-building strategies and targeted outreach. These two components could benefit from using digital transformation strategies to create more efficiencies.

Relationship-building in workforce development and education is a long-term strategy that involves bringing partners to the table to collaborate and solve complex issues facing a community. Targeted outreach requires strategically reaching those market segments of job seekers, youth, students and employers to engage with your organization as a customer of your services to help meet their goals, as well as your performance measures.

While relationship-building and targeted outreach need different strategies, there are three key technology trends that can be leveraged to help execute them successfully: 1) email marketing; 2) marketing automation and 3) customer relationship management.
