University? -- Best Marketing experience





rezx
Hi, today im going to share my own experience on marketing strategy.

Im a university student currently studying at Swinburne University of Technology. When i first came in here i barely knew anyone. After a year and half not only have i made a lot friends; but; i made a lot of business too.

The basic fact that urged me to write up this post -- is the amazing network inside a university. I had a site which wasnt making 200 hits per day. When i socialised and advertised my site verbally and email to friends..in just 5 months i was making 1200 uniques per day. Only if that was an end to it. I made up a nice looking handout and pasted in my bulletin board. Couple of weeks my hits doubled. I was asking some of my mates the reason they said that student like to socialise something they like...like an ever growing network..

So if there is anyone affiliated to any university you might be losing serious traffic and not using the scopes of a huge base advertising campaign which all comes for free.

I goto University of Technology, Sydney. I found what you said pretty interesting. Every businessman knows networking is the key to success. Hence, "Its not what you know its who you know." Can you tell me more about you strategy of marketing your internet business to the university crowd? What are you selling? What's your website?
