    Hello, during the summer I was making a decent amount of money drop shopping, but as school came around I had no time to ship anything at all so I stopped. I have been thinking that since I live around a good amount of colleges here in St.louis, I can take advantage and start a business to make money via college students. I am trying to find a product that all college students want/need, and am asking nicely if you guys could recommend anything or even tell me your story of how you made big bucks during college. Even message me or PM about an item that you have that you will think can sell, I am willing to do any sort of business. So if you have anything in mind I'm here to listen. I was thinking about a delivery service, but that might be a little hard and not enough income. Anything will do, thanks to the people of BHW! And no I don't want to risk selling marijuana =)

    Throw party's, buy 5 kegs and charge $10 at the door. You'll make a ton of money. And if the kegs run dry call the cops to break up the party before people notice ;) trust me.

    All students want to make money. If Ropa was still here he'd suggest to start a porn site but you could easily make a couple of videos or PDFs filled with affiliate links for IM sites and services.

    All students have internet and a laptop so why not encourage some new comers to the IM game while making money from them.

    This guy is right, especially during holidays. Most colleges pay bars to stay closed during these days because..... problems occur.

    Living in a college town opens you up incredible offline marketing possibilities. Most students are poor and more than predictable when it comes to what they want and need (beer, money and even more of the first two). Think of the college as highly directed traffic. You already know where the traffic is and what they want. Think of a good way to exploit that.

    I would agree that egics or vape pens would be a good way to make some money, but its not scaleable.

    Put together a list of the top 20 trending products college-aged people want now. Then research the top savings available for each product, say 10 deals for each niche, put it together in a site/eBook. Provide the info for free with a content locker/PPD survey set-up. Earn a few dozen bucks a day, on up.

    1. go to frat parties, wait for people to get drunk, steal their phones...

    they can't call the cops without a phone and even if they did what would they say ? "Yeah I'm underage and I was fucked up at a party and some dude stole my phone" ? Cops are gonna think the idiots lost them :)

    2. go to parties, wait for chicks to get drunk, shoot porn videos (GGW style)

    do I really need to explain why this is a good idea ?

    E-cig/Vape parties.

    Think of it like a tupperware party. You find a cheap distributor and buy some samples. Get people to throw a "party" for their friends and take orders for your products. Throw the host of the party a free gift or two. Collect the money, go home and order the stuff from your distributor and keep your profit.

    You can even make up some little catalogs of your products and order forms.

    Once you get a good following, people will be coming to you because they want to throw a party for their friends. You can also add different products too.

    These types of things are really easy to get going in a college town.

    Have fun!
