A recent study by the Department of Education revealed that over 65% of all undergraduate students are receiving some form of financial aid. Truly an indicator of how expensive things have gotten. No longer is the good old “college savings account” or fund enough! A positive spin on the high number on all of the aid, is that it is allowing many more lower income families to get their children into college.
With such high college costs, and increasing financial aid, the majority of students in college just do not have much spare cash to spend. For companies that want to market their products and services on campus, this means “in touch” advertising strategies that understand the limitations. For sure, students still are buying food, beverages, books, supplies, and a wide range of other goods and services. The trick for businesses is to develop marketing campaigns that promote savings, discounts, sales, and low prices.
The college student of today is most adept at finding ads online, SMS, in the campus newspaper, on bulletin boards and posters, in fliers, and all around campus.
