50 College Papers to Advertise In

Colleges have tremendous circulation of their bulletins and newspapers. Their price per run on advertising is very inexpensive for the number of prospects reached. Believe it or not, multi-millions of dollars are spent by students each semester.

If you have a new idea or product, run a test ad in one or more of the publications and see if you get results. Usually a less expensive 1" ad will let you know whether your product or service is going to pull or not. If your test ad proves successful, then you may want to go to a larger ad or even a display-type ad and increase your coverage to include more bulletins and newspapers.

Another way to distribute your product is to advertise for a student on campus to represent you on a commission basis and  be your dealer. Usually there are several students who would love to have the opportunity to make some extra money. A good way to find  the right person is by resume qualifications or actually calling them on the phone and talking it over with them. Finding the key person could result in many easy dollars in your pocket.

In the past, some of the biggest sellers on campus have been radio and stereo equipment, music tapes, car repair manuals, study aids, self-improvement booklets and tapes, school fads of various natures, and any kind of special or different steins for drinking beer. Any new idea or product you may be able to come up with could be very advantageous to you in the form of increased sales.

Advertising in college bulletins and newspapers gains more results during the first three days of the week. When ordering advertising, it is best to specify that your ad appear in the Monday-Wednesday editions. Thursday is okay, but Friday is definitely out; minds seem to drift toward plans for the weekend, leaving little interest for purchasing.

Write to the enclosed list of publications. Ask for their rates and circulation. All  of them will respond to your needs and many of them will call you and discuss whatever plans you have for advertising. They will work with you to try to see that you get the most response from any type ad you may run.

We sincerely hope this report helps you in gaining sales and  is an  instrument in the growth of your company. You cannot beat the circulation of prospects  reached  for  the dollars spent. Have a good year!

21st Century Business Women

When the first generation of women entered the workforce in earnest in the 1970s, they succeeded in the only way they could – by imitating men.  Authoritarian leadership and tight control was the hallmark of that day’s businessman, and women were not exactly welcomed into the ranks of management.  Well ladies, that was yesterday, and today is today!

Forget what your mama or your boss told you, because following the rules can be bad for your career.  Today’s CEO/entrepreneur can no longer tap his/her company’s full potential using a “command-and-control” style.  The 21st century business woman needs to be able to build a vision based on the awareness of economic transformation, then help her partners and staff fulfill that vision.  She must draw on a wide range of skills to get to the top and stay there.  Following are 7 Key Characteristics that are essential:

  1. Sell the Vision: A leader with a fresh, independent plan for her company’s growth and future has a distinct advantage in luring and keeping great talent and investors.  Vision is not some lofty ideal, but an obtainable concept that is easy to understand and will make the company grow to another level.
  2. Reinvent the Rules:  While women have traditionally been socialized to please others, the 21st century leader knows that good girls rarely post great returns.  The strong managers/owners today not only anticipate change, they create entirely new organizations that respond to shifts and search for innovation.
  3. Achieve With A Laser Focus:  Go where others fear to tread! Being aggressive and ambitious has long been considered male traits, but they are key qualities for new leaders.  Today’s business woman has the ability to home in on opportunities that others may simply not see, and then excel in that uncharted territory.  
  4. Use High-Touch in a High-Tech Era:  When a number of leaders are conducting business by e-mail, voice mail, passwords, and PINs, the female entrepreneur succeeds because she guides with a strong, personal, bed-side manner. Today’s business woman is just as technologically savvy as her peers, but her skill with staff and customers is “high-touch” which gives her a critical edge and separation from the “pack”.
  5. Challenge or Opportunity? – Women are great at turning a challenge into an opportunity instead of using the “slash-and-burn” approach.  They are able to make bold strokes, but they also win the cooperation of others in the organization in making any transformation a success.
  6. A Customer Preference Obsession:  In this information age which makes it easier to shop around for the best “whatever”, businesses must work harder to give people what they want before their competitors do.  There is no substitute for spending time with clients to become expert at their businesses and learn their demands.  Female leaders are almost intuitively adept in doing just that, and without the client even suspecting.
  7. Courage Under Fire:  Show me any career woman or female entrepreneur today that isn’t able to “stand-the-heat” in any tough-call situation.  Their decision-making skills are rooted in a high level of confidence, because they’ve had to weather and surpass any and all “corporate” storms they’ve encountered over time.

It takes a certain mind-set and bravado for anyone to start their own business and succeed, but it’s even more difficult for a female entrepreneur.  Let’s face it, ladies!  We’ve always had to be twice-as-smart and twice-as-confident as any male counterpart in the corporate world.  After all, if we can bear and raise the future generation, how can running a successful business scare us?
