Create Brand Ambassadors With The Best SWAG To Target College Students

By Dean Schwartz (SWAG Master): The college student demographic presents a unique opportunity for businesses to reach potential customers during a formative time in their lives and turn them into brand ambassadors.

For one, college-aged adults are typically more receptive to free products and actively seek out brands that understand their needs, so SWAG that speaks to them can be extra effective. College campuses also provide an environment conducive to creating brand experiences and forming personal connections, making it any marketer’s dream. 

Finally, word-of-mouth is powerful among college students, and a well-executed promotional campaign can lead to organic advocacy for your brand. That’s priceless.

Luckily, SOBO can help with all of the above. In addition to creating memorable experiences and increasing social engagement, we have options that cover the 3 main needs for any college student SWAG: 1) practical & useful, 2) trendy & fashionable, or 3) eco-friendly & sustainable.
