Teachers As Consumers: Background, Interests, Buying Patterns, and Media Uses

There are 7+ million educators in the U.S. This report tells you what you need to know to make these ideal consumers your next customers.

MDR teamed with Simmons Market Research to take a deep dive into teachers’ lives as consumers. This report, Teachers as Consumers: Background, Interests, Buying Patterns, and Media Uses, delivers valuable insights that marketers can use to identify target audiences, focus outreach strategies, and select the most effective channels to engage teachers. For example:

  • Educators love listening to music, dining out, reading books, going to the beach or lake, playing card games, visiting museums, and cooking for fun.
  • Teachers engage in online activities considerably more than the general population—and for almost everything that can be done on the Internet—email, banking, shopping, using social network sites, and so forth.
  • In response to emails sent from a retailer or business, teachers are more willing than the general population to actually make a purchase—both online and offline.
