How SMS Marketing can help Education Sectors
Once upon a time, there were just Schools and Colleges. Every kind of study be it kindergarten, be it playschools, be it tuition, be it institute everything came under these two mentioned above; but today all of these are different. Before people used to start their education at school and end up in college but today they start with Play School and end up doing online courses.
The moral of the story is that Education has changed drastically. Now is the time to change the process of education smartly. Every payment update and event should reach the authorised person timely. But How?
Bulk SMS service can help from getting new admissions to maintaining the existing ones. Create an attractive template for new admissions, update parents about holidays or attendance, and share a feedback survey or payment update in just a single click.
Under Bulk SMS service there are two different types of SMS templates promotional and transactional. Both templates help the education sector in their own ways. Let us see how:
1. Promotional SMS
- Event Promotion:
Being a part of School and College, you have to engage students in different events and activities. This is done for the overall development of students. With Promotional messages, you can easily reach everyone no matter whether the count is in thousands or lacs and get more participants in the event.
Hello [Add Name],
We are taking our students to an old age home for a day and want every student to join us

- New Admission:
The education sector has a very huge database in terms of Phone Numbers. Utilize that by running a promotional SMS campaign for getting more students on board. Create an attractive SMS template for new admissions and share that with all the numbers.
Hello [Add Name],
Only a few seats are left for the admission of the new batch.

- Sending Payment Reminders
Many parents pay the fee in instalments. There are customizable instalments like someone paying the fee in 6 months or in 9 months. Automated SMS that is integrated into ERP or CRM can send payment reminders to the registered numbers on timeframe. This will ease the follow-up work done by the education sectors.
Hello [Add Name] sir,
This is regarding the instalment that you have to pay for the next segment.

- Important Notices
There are some important things to update the parents like Parents Teacher Meetings. Mostly teachers relay to students that they will update the parents about the meeting. With SMS service you can easily send a bulk SMS to parents and update them with the date to attend the meeting.
This is a reminder for the parent’s teacher meeting that we are having on 29-10-22. The timing for the meeting will be from morning 9 AM – 11 AM.
- Yearly Feedback
The most important thing that should be undertaken is taking yearly feedback from the parents or students on everything possible. Create a survey in which the authorised person can share their feedback on the school environment, teachers, further activities etc.
We would like you to fill out this feedback form for a better understanding of your experience with our curriculum.

- Holiday Updates
There are uncounted holidays in Schools or colleges. Some are calender based others are unpredictable holidays like heavy rain or a political strike or any other uncertain activity. In such situations, Education sectors can create a variable-based template, where we can customize the reason for a holiday.
We are very sorry to inform you that due to [strike] we have to give school holiday for student’s safety.
[Add any variable in a bracket]
Next week there are summer holidays starting for the students. So, kindly engage your children in other activities and make sure they do homework provided by teachers.
Regards XYZ School
