It is time to welcome back CSU Students… Is Your Business Ready?

Jul 30, 2019 | Member News

It’s almost that time of year when we prepare to welcome back the 33,400+ Colorado State University students when they start classes on August 29, 2019. Is your business and brand ready for the bump in customers and sales? Do they even know what you sell or how you service them?

Did you know that businesses that make the extra effort to cater to college students offering special discounts and services will definitely see an increase in cash flow from these students? With 20% of Fort Collins’ city sales tax spending collected by CSU students, faculty & staff, it makes perfect business sense to market your brand on and around the CSU campus to this huge chunk of the local market.

Have you ever wondered how you can get directly in front of college students that are brand-loyal, geographically stable, age stable, and spend more than $200 billion annually? By working with Rocky Mountain Student Media to promote your business and brand through a variety of innovative marketing programs.

We are currently selling space in the Collegian’s very popular “RAM Welcome Move-In Edition” which publishes August 19, and is placed on every desk inside every single dorm room at CSU! No other publication has direct access to CSU students. “Move-in” is when all the new students (& their parents) converge onto campus with all their stuff they need to move-in for the entire school year. What better way to reach thousands of potential customers that are new to Fort Collins and will be here for the next four years than to run your ad inside our special “RAM Welcome Move-In Edition?”

“If you are looking to build brand awareness and loyalty to the CSU community, this special edition of the Collegian is the best and most cost-effective way to do so,” says Christa Reed, Senior Advertising Consultant/Lead Trainer at Rocky Mountain Student Media. “Students love to buy local and support local businesses but they can’t do that if they don’t even know you exist,” adds Reed.

We are also currently selling our Collegian Back-2-School edition that publishes August 29 and is the first publication of the “Collegian” for the school year. Rates are very reasonable for both editions, space deadline for “Residence Move-In” is August 9, and “Back-2-School” space deadline is August 21. If you are interested in taking advantage of both these amazing opportunities, please contact Christa Reed today at 970-491-2126 or email [email protected] for more details.
