The Problem

Standing Out + Earning Trust in the Crowded Tutoring Space

Academic Approach offers high-quality tutoring for academics, high school admission, AP exams, the SAT and ACT — but so do many of its competitors. Its Chicago branch wanted to connect with parents in certain ZIP codes around the region, specifically connecting with parents of children ages 11-17. Its goal was to build trust, not simply advertise services.

The Solution

Creating + Promoting Helpful Content Featuring Their Experts

This content was promoted in on-site digital ads, targeted email marketing and social media, targeting Chicago Parent’s highly aligned audience — as well as other parents in this market.

The Result

Strong Content Engagement + Direct Web Traffic

Academic Approach’s content drew 14,960 pageviews on with 300+ hours spent on page over the course of two years. In addition, it resulted in a striking 10,000+ visits directly to the company’s website, making this content marketing second only to Google in driving traffic.
