The International School of Beauty Therapy

The brief
The beauty school approached Purple Sprout in January 2019 and asked us to help them establish a clear brand and raise awareness of their course offering.

They had a Facebook page, but had not tried Facebook advertising, and their website was very basic and in need of an upgrade.

Purple Sprout improved upon the beauty school’s existing branding, so the school did not have to completely rebrand, and delivered a more stylised, modern approach to the look and feel of ISOBT. We established a clear set of brand guidelines to maintain consistency across everything from digital content to print media.

We began by implementing a social media marketing strategy across Facebook and Instagram, with targeted promoted content changing focus each month depending on upcoming events and courses. The beauty school did not have an Instagram account and since setting one up in January the account has gained 72 followers and received 1.4k engagements.

Facebook likes have increased by 11% over a six-month period.

With the social media taken care of, we looked to improve the website. We made sure the new site was user friendly, had all the right course information and allowed potential students to find out about funding options and apply easily online. Feedback has been incredibly positive and students can now find all the information they need to start or improve their career. Although it is early days as of yet, we can already see that users have increased by 25% and sessions have increased by 12%.

Purple Sprout also created an exhibition pack for the beauty school, which included everything staff needed to promote ISOBT and have a professional presence at events.
