It’s nearly that time again. While students are currently sweating about their A-Level results in August, hopefully if all goes to plan attentions will soon turn to the much anticipated Freshers’ week.

Freshers’ week and beyond is a fantastic time to market yourself towards students. Whether you’re the university, students’ union, clubs and societies or a company who will be working closely with the students in the area, Freshers is a fantastic marketing opportunity.

Companies such as letting agencies, pubs and bars, book shops and taxi services are among many organisations who could profit from promotional products.

One promotional product which are key to a smoothly ran freshers’ event. We have a fantastic range of lanyards on offer at a great price. With a variety of styles and accessories, our printed lanyards are available with a quick turnaround so you can start planning your events nice and early.

If you’re a university society or club looking to recruit new members your stall is going to need some practical products. Whether they are promotional pens, branded USB sticks or printed notebooks, make sure your society is getting all the information on a useful marketing tool.

Freshers’ fairs are no different to any trade show or exhibition. The tried and tested promotional products there also work here. Promotional bags are always a winner. They can be used at the event to collect other products and they can be used around campus and everyday life.

Finally, we’ll move away from the freshers’ fair event and quickly look at students settling down in their home for the next three (or more) years.vu;can

Going to university is often the first time many of the students have lived away from home. They are in new cities and new environments and so need new contacts. They will be looking for new bars to frequent and new taxi companies as their go to ride home.

This is a great opportunity to get a few new customers. Bottle opener keyrings are always a popular promotional product for students. You can get your taxi company’s phone number engraved on a popular, practical and stylish keyring.

After a night of using that promotional bottle opener some students may struggle to make it to the 9am lecture, seminar or workshop. Why not invest in some promotional travel coffee mugs to give to the students to help them on their way?

Freshers’ week is an exciting time for students. Universities, societies and companies are in a position to help make their live a little easier while settling in to their new homes while managing to successfully market themselves. We call that a win-win.
