Online reviews and ratings have revolutionized the way businesses acquire new customers — and the trillion dollar education market is no exception.
Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) April 08, 2015
BirdEye, a leader in reputation marketing, announced today its partnership with the New York Distance Learning Association (NYDLA), a leading association for distance learning organizations. With BirdEye, NYDLA now offers state-of-the-art reputation marketing for its member universities and K-12 institutions across the US. The partnership brings together emerging leaders in fields dominated by technological innovation and customer focus.
Prior to the advent of online education, selecting education providers was predominately influenced by geographic proximity. Physical distance prescribed, and limited, student options. Now, with the general availability of online and distance learning, competition to enroll students is heating up beyond local, regional, and even national boundaries. Distinguishing one learning organization from another is no longer a matter of proximity, but of strength of curriculum and faculty. And how are these strengths validated? Today, by modern day word-of-mouth — online reviews.
“Online reviews and ratings have revolutionized the way businesses acquire new customers — and the trillion dollar education market is no exception,” said Thomas A. Capone, Executive Director of the NYDLA. “We are excited to partner with BirdEye to offer our members state-of-the-art tools to gather and manage student reviews and market their positive reputation. With BirdEye, our members have access to advanced enterprise and competitor analytics to glean insight from student feedback across the Internet.”
“The NYDLA.org and USDLA.org are great partners for us as we expand in the education market,” said Naveen Gupta, CEO of BirdEye. “Millions of members rely on NYDLA.org to identify innovation trends and recommend best tools, and we’re thrilled that they have selected BirdEye as their reputation marketing partner. Now, universities and K-12 institutions can incorporate student feedback into their programs, and can separate from the pack to acquire new customers and loyal advocates.”
