Offering a Teacher Discount

As a target market, teachers fill every goal, hope, and dream of a marketer. There are both quantitative and qualitative reasons to love the teacher market. Offering special discounts to educators as a “thank-you” creates great marketing opportunities, especially around the back-to-school season and Teacher Appreciation week (in May).

Opportunity

There are 6.7 million educators and school administrators in the U.S. They are especially loyal to brands that value education and appreciate teachers. 80% are more loyal to companies that offer teacher discounts, and 94% go out of their way to shop at a business that gives teacher discounts.
