ADVERTISING UPDATE A long-awaited semester’s end is approaching and students are anxious for the stress release that accompanies the winter break. Reach out to students to gain a piece of their holiday spending and end of semester celebrating. The Collegian has several special issues in the coming weeks to position your advertisements directly in front of your target market. The Rocky Mountain Collegian continues to be the primary source of news for college students since 1891. Advertising in our paper places your business in front of over 34,000 students, faculty and staff at Colorado State.

Economic woes have likely effected all businesses throughout Fort Collins and the country.

DIVISION 3B: Best Sales Promotion Materials As we head into a possible economic recession, we have taken a major initiative to focus on and secure New Business for the 08-09 school year. Our first initiative was to develop a 3-part mailing campaign to reach out to clients who have not advertised with us in over a year, who are familiar with our products, but for one reason or other are not currently spending. We took this opportunity to re-introduce the campus community to them, along with important information about our spending power, and other key information central to the old “money doesn’t grow on trees” adage our parents have always told us, and spun that into a campaign designed to help our clients grow their own money tree! The first mailer was a letter and an attention-grabbing piece that looks like money. The second mailer was a post-card, and the third mailer included a letter, our rate card, and a coupon resembling money. While the full effects of this initiative will only be known until the second semester is well over. Initial results show that while in our city, most media outlets are down about 20 – 20% in revenues, and while competitive universities of our size are down about 12 – 20%, Louisiana State University Student Media heads into the second semester ahead of last year by 13%. We have re-vamped our style of flyers to reflect an overall “clean” look, as well as similar-looking materials so that our clients can recognize our pieces from the competition more readily. These pieces come out about every 2 weeks or so to keep our clients thinking about reasons to advertise! Our sales force has put into place alternating sales contact with personal contact, and the relationships they’ve grown we feel have been a key aspect to our success this school year. This summer, all the reps took time to make “goodie baskets” of baked goods, pencils, bumper stickers, etc. to say thank you for last year’s business – and all of them have seen nearly a 20% increase in this year’s contracts! It was their sincere way of reaching out to the client to keep in touch, and not just always make a sales call. We feel our overall efforts to maintain awareness, reach out to old clients, and develop meaningful and lasting relationships with our clients has lead to our success where others are failing.
