Eduwis which is a top 10 preschool franchise brand in Malaysia, focuses on providing the best early childhood education experience to all children through their well-known thematic integrated learning activity-based syllabus. 

However, the question remains, how did we deliver an award-winning marketing campaign, entitled “The Shift of Mass to Targeted Marketing” to our client DURING the pandemic? 


COVID-19 Scares Away The Business

The problem started when Eduwis found their business to be affected severely by a few factors mainly COVID-19 protocols, and high competition which results in having only 20% actual sales conversion rate. Initially, Eduwis did not rely much on Search Engine Marketing as it was perceived to not have much value in it. 

However, when desperate times call for desperate measures, Eduwis approached us with the goal of gaining business stability and having a better lead generator with a shorter sales cycle. However, with the condition of having their overall budget to be reduced by 50% during the whole marketing phase.

What Did We Do        


We first analyzed Google Keyword Planner to interpret parents’ clear intentions when looking for preschools during the pandemic.

From there, we planned out a full search funnel especially a SEO funnel on their business after understanding their client’s situation and also their prospects’ demand with three levels: 

  • Awareness & Interest
  • Consideration & Intent
  • Evaluation


Despite their competitors having stopped their search ads at that time, we carried out the digital marketing plan with Search Engine Optimization (SEO) to be set as the upper funnel (awareness & interest) in bringing more organic traffic via Google Search Engine Result Page (SERP).

On the other hand,  Google Search Ads acts as the middle funnel to attract a high-intent audience (consideration & intent) when it became the main driver of high-quality sales enquiry with a shorter sales cycle.

Last but not least, Google Business Profile (GBP) functions as the lower funnel (evaluation) when it acts as the last reference to build trust & increase the confidence of prospects by showing customer reviews before they make their decisions.
