Creating Effective VR Marketing Campaigns for Education Events

Updated: Apr 11, 2023

Participating in education events, such as school fairs and career expos, is an important way for schools to showcase their programs and attract new students. However, with so many schools looking for attention, it can be challenging to stand out from the crowd. That's where virtual reality (VR) marketing comes in. By creating immersive and interactive VR experiences, schools can capture the attention of visitors and leave a lasting impression.

This is what Universidad Fernando Pessoa Canarias created with us for their 2023 campaign. We created 6 VR experiences that briefly explains and show what each degree is like.

In this blog post, we'll offer some tips and strategies for creating effective VR marketing campaigns for education events.

1. Identify your audience and their needs

The first step in creating an effective VR marketing campaign is to identify your audience and their needs. Who are you trying to attract? What are their interests and goals? Once you have a clear understanding of your target audience, you can tailor your VR experience to meet their needs. For example, if you're targeting secondary school students interested in STEM fields, you might create a VR experience that allows them to see practical activities during the school year.

2. Make it interactive and engaging

One of the key benefits of VR marketing is the ability to create immersive and interactive experiences. To make your VR campaign effective, you need to take advantage of these capabilities. Consider incorporating interactive elements, such as quizzes, games, or challenges, that allow attendees to engage with your brand and learn about your programs in a fun and memorable way.

3. Use storytelling to create a narrative

People are naturally drawn to stories. By using storytelling techniques in your VR experience, you can create a narrative that draws attendees in and helps them connect with your school on an emotional level. For example, Deseo VR uses the first person storytelling style where the camera is a student at the school and student actors will interact with it as if they were friends. This will give the viewer the empathetic feel that they already belong to your school.

4. Showcase your unique value proposition

What makes your school stand out from the competition? Use your VR experience to showcase your unique value proposition and highlight the benefits of attending your school. For example, you might create a VR tour that focuses on your state-of-the-art facilities, your award-winning faculty, or your robust alumni network.

5. Keep it simple and user-friendly

While VR technology can be incredibly powerful, it's important to keep your VR experience simple and user-friendly. Attendees should be able to navigate your VR experience easily and without confusion. In addition, you should have an extra staff or hire the production agency to deal with the technical challenges during the event.

With these tips in mind, you'll be well on your way to creating a successful VR marketing campaign for your school.
