College Marketing approaches and information:
Examples consist of posters and flyers placed on-campus as well as at retail shops, cafes, and other locations students frequent, plus outside on street poles, public bulletin boards, and other visible streetscape locations.
The most popular posters mediums for college posters programs are 11″ x 17″, and flyers are typically 4″ x 6′ in size.
Typically initiatives consist of placing posters on and around campuses over 2 to 3 weeks.
College student experiential activations typically consist of off-campus street team activations, product sampling vehicles, food truck marketing, nightlife activations and a variety of other student engagement activities.
Activations tend to occur just off-campus on public sidewalks or at locations popular with students (e.g. cafes, student housing, etc.) as universities tend not to approve branded events.
Typically the only way to activate on-campus with permission is if the activation is sponsored by an academic student group.
College football tailgating marketing is a common approach for reaching college students.
Most schools offer packages for brands to activate on stadium grounds within a 10' x 10 to 20' x 10' footprint.
A low-key football tailgating marketing approach is for a street team to engage people on their way to the game or activating in the parking lots.
