Where to find educators in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Educators

Educators want to introduce students to the world of robotics. However, they can't get it because they have limited access to affordable educational robotics kits.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. RoboEdu.

RoboEdu: Affordable Educational Robotics Platform : RoboEdu provides educators with cost-effective robotics kits and curriculum to teach students about robotics and programming. Of course it is much better than the stuff from LEGO Education, or VEX Robotics!

How to find Educators

You can get insights about the pain points of educators if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where educators hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of educators, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: RoboEdu: Affordable Educational Robotics Platform.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.

If you do this manually, it may take you hours each day. Automate it, with a little help from the AI in CustomerPing!
