Calculate Expected Response from a Students for Admission

Posted by Students Database | Students Database Providers | Students Database Seller | Education Database | Database of Indian Students| on November 22, 2017 at 5:35 AM

Few students, including advertising professionals, know how to calculate the expected response from a newspaper ad. A newspaper circulation of 200,000 doesn’t mean 200,000 people will be contemplating your ad.

Here are the variables you need to consider when calculating an expected response from a newspaper ad.

1. YOUR TARGET

Every product has a demographic that represents its prime target. Let’s say, for the sake of this example, that your target demographic is adults, 25 – 54

2. MARKET SIZE

If you are located in a city of 1.5 million people and the 25 – 54 demographic represents 40%, then your target population is 600,000.

3. DURATION OF PURCHASES

Since people don’t buy every product they use every day of the year, the duration between purchases is important to consider. Let’s say people buy your product one time per year on average. Then, your available market in any month is 1/12 of 600,000, or 50,000. Of course, you’ll have to take into account the seasonal fluctuations for your product and apply the same logic.

4. NEWSPAPER CIRCULATION

If your local daily newspaper has a 40% penetration in your market, calculate that against your available 50,000 markets to reach 20,000 possible qualified exposures to your message.

5. READERSHIP

Not every subscriber reads every page every day. Studies have shown that if you get 10% of the subscribers to read your ad, that is a very generous number. Applying that calculation to our example reduced the number of targeted customers to 2,000.

6. YOUR MARKET SHARE

Unless you have an exclusive monopoly in your market, you have competition with some customers who are loyal to them. If your overall market share is 10%, you can apply that to the remaining targeted customers, leaving 200 as your reasonable expectation.

7. RESPONSE RATE

Assume a 2% response rate from your ad.

8. RESPONSE

Your expected response (customers making a transaction) will be 4.

Indian students database increase by 16%

Posted by Students Database | Students Database Providers | Students Database Seller | Education Database | Database of Indian Students| on November 21, 2017 at 9:25 AM

Institute of International Education has released 2017 Open Doors data which pointed that percentage of Indian students flowing to US for higher education has declined by 16.43 % over the previous year.

 

 

According to a report published in Livemint, As per Open Doors data, in 2016-17, 62,537 got the F1 Visa, down from 74,831 students in the previous year, a 16.43% decline. This decline came amid concerns over changes in the US immigration policy.

 

According to official data released on Monday, a total of 186,267 Indians were studying in the US universities in 2016-17. In 2015-16, the number had grown by 24.9% and in 2014-15 it had jumped by 29.4%.

 

 

The 2017 Open Doors data released by the Institute of International Education (IIE) also says that in 2016-17, Indian students accounted for 17.3% of the total foreign students in the US contributing $6.54 billion to the US economy.

Apart from India, the growth was subdued in China, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and Canada as well. The number of Saudi students and Brazilian students declined by 14% and 32% respectively.

 

The Washington Post said on Monday that “Higher education leaders have been on alert for signs that the Trump administration’s efforts to ban travellers from certain majority-Muslim countries and heightened scrutiny of foreign visitors are deterring international students.”

 

“The rate of growth for India is the highest among the top 25 places of origin among international students in the US…but the rate of 12% growth was lower than the 25% growth in the previous year,” the report added

 

Among the total Indian students in the US, their numbers enrolled in different courses include:

How to capturing student data

Posted by Students Database | Students Database Providers | Students Database Seller | Education Database | Database of Indian Students| on November 21, 2017 at 9:20 AM

This academic year, class 10 students and their teachers will be spared the onerous task of manually filling up forms with personal details of students — a requirement for registering for the SSLC examination. The Department of Public Instruction (DPI) has decided that all the details can be procured from the Student Achievement Tracking System (SATS).

 

V. Sumangala, Director of the Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board (KSEEB), said that in the past, students would have to fill details such as date of birth, parents’ names, and medium in which they would appear for the exam. “The teachers had to fill 22 particulars in an OMR sheet and send it to the board. Now we will take the data from the software. The school only has to send us a photo, signature of the candidate, and the language combination,” she said.

 

Schools will then be given a checklist to ensure that the details are accurate. Changes, if any, will be made on the tracking system.

 

The SATS platform has records of over one crore students from classes 1 to 10. According to the system, a nine-digit unique number is given to a student and all details, including his or her academic records, are fed into the database. A circular was issued by the KSEEB on Saturday, and all schools have been told to fill in these details by December 10.

 

P.C. Jaffer, Commissioner for Public Instruction, said not only will this reduce manual work and make it simpler for teachers and students, it will also help cut down on data entry errors. On an average, over eight lakh students appear for the SSLC exam every year.

 

An official said as 75% of the data was already available on the SATS server, cutting down several steps would also be cost-effective.
