    Hey all,

    Looking for a bit of helpful advice from you guys. I'm a student in the UK (Nottingham to be exact :D ) which means, as long as I don't get caught, I have a huge number of students I can easily market to with posters and the like. Any suggestions on what kind of things to market? At the moment I'm working on a humble landing page bigging up survey sites as an alternative source of beer money, the logic being students will do anything for cash. I was thinking maybe offering simple site/blog creation too (like somebody mentioned in another thread) but students are generally far more computer savvy so may see through that.

    Now I don't want to scam my brethren, but I have no qualms with a bit of heavy misleading. Any thoughts would be massively appreciated, and I guess this thread could help the other students out amongst us think of ideas.

    Thaks

    Are you in college or Uni??

    In college , weight loss would work really well, since you got to be "fit" to fit!!

    Also, i agree with jaymartins, mailing list is a great idea. And should be really easy as well. offer some incentive obviously.

    What, like standing there with a pile of cakes and a laptop saying "sign up here and I'll give you a cake?"

    haha... that might work actually. Not for the weightloss obviously...

    HAHAHAHA- it would work with weight loss. Give them some fatty food!! like pizza or cake..after they had alot. Then make them subtly gulity for eating:D Or hire some kids to come by and call them "fat" then , offer them the free weight loss stuff, like acai , etc.

    LOL .
