Digital Media on Campus

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

Back to school season is quickly approaching and many students will be getting situated for another year of studying and hard work. This gives marketers a perfect opportunity to reach the college student audience and make an effort to connect with them. As technology continues to rise and devices continue to evolve, many marketers are starting to reach this audience through digital media. This makes it much better and easier for the tech-savvy student.

Through digital media, students can interact with brands directly on college campuses via their mobile phones and tablets. Certain apps or programs can direct the user to content and campaigns relevant to college students, including campus-specific information and announcements as well as marketing campaigns. Students can be provided with valuable offers, content, and information based on their interests. This can allow advertisers to target the college student audience, making their campaigns more specific based on the preferences of the student.

Digital media is becoming more important for reaching the college student as this generation is more involved with technology. For more information, visit campussolutionsinc.com

College Sports Tailgating Events

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

College Sports fans are very loyal fans who get excited and enthusiastic when there is a big event. They are the perfect audience to target when looking to promote new or existing snacks and food items.

These fans can be targeted during college football tailgating events. Tailgating is a fun, energetic environment where fans are made up of students, friends, family, and alumni. This target audience is keen to trying new products, such as snacks, a cool beverage, or a new food item. Reaching this audience prior to the start of the game is ideal for promoting your product because people are eating, drinking, laughing and all around enjoying themselves.

Campus Solutions can help reach these enthusiastic fans during the college sports tailgating season. Many people attend a college sporting event each year, making it a great opportunity to get your brand noticed by a large group of consumers willing to try new food.

Summer Opportunities: Reaching out to the College Student

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

Summer is quickly approaching and beaches, as well as campuses, will be filled with college students. The college demographic is an important consumer group and there are many methods to reach them during the summer months. Its beneficial to reach brands on the beach during the summer because this is mostly where this demographic can be found. Marketing on the beach can be done in various ways. Street teams can distribute an assortment of promotional items, such as samples, towels, or branded umbrellas. Our street teams can also spray the young men and women with sun tan lotion, and introduce them to the brand.

Aside from beaches, college students can also be reached on off-campus apartments. Our teams can do branded pool parties that include DJs, plenty of food, tabling, and lots of swag to give out.

On average, 1/3 of college students stay on campus for summer sessions, keeping campuses busy during the summer months. This is the perfect time to reach out to college students. Brands can take advantage of reaching large groups of students in a clutter- free environment through college event marketing. Community colleges are also great in the summer because many students fulfill their summer requirements on a campus near their homes. These students can be reached through direct mail or even e-blasts.

Campus Solutions can help you reach these students before the college back-to-school season. For more information, please visit our website at campussolutionsinc.com.

It’s Halfway Through the Semester

Tuesday, March 19th, 2013

 

It’s halfway through the semester and many students are following March Madness, studying for midterms, and getting ready for an exciting spring break. For many consumer brands, this March season is a perfect opportunity for brands to initiate their college marketing efforts by reaching out to this college demographic.

During March Madness, the NCAA Men’s Division basketball championship is what you will mostly catch a college student watching. Many students are looking for places other than their dorm to gather with their friends and watch their favorite teams. A Fan Zone would be the perfect place not only for these students, but for companies to host, advertise, and provide food and snacks for them as well. This will allow your brand to gain major brand awareness and give the students a great place to hang out and watch the game.

During midterm week, students’ priorities shift from social activities to studying around campus. Large groups of students tend to go all over campus, from the library to coffee shops to campus lawns, in order to study and read their lecture notes. This is a great opportunity for clients to reach this demographic by handing out snack samples in order to promote healthy study breaks.

Here at Campus Solutions we are staffed with people to help make your marketing campaign unique and effective this 2013 season. For more information, visit us at campussolutionsinc.com
