    Say I was going to get an email list of college professors, what would be the best types of products to market towards them?


    Thanks

    Pencils, Markers and Glue? lol seriously though I think you should think about marketing carry bags for
    teachers and any high value supply like boards. Do not forget about junk items like novelties that sell
    high and can be bought cheap like Einstein head paper holders and stuff like that.

    Put yourself in the shoes of a college professor. What would you want to buy? Perhaps guides on how to teach a class more effectively. Also figure out what their income bracket is and make sure the cost of your product(s) fits within that.

    I tried to put myself in the shoes of professors and sadly most of the ones I have had do not come across like they would want help or information on better teaching methods. Of course I am not speaking for all just 90% of the ones I have had up to this point. At my University from what I have heard professors earn about 60k+. I go to a good school, but it is small so I am not sure about the national averages. I guess I will have to do a little market research on that.
