SPRING BREAK MARKETING 2015
Why Spring Break is Important
With around 1.5 million students attending Spring Break every year and spending near 1 billion dollars in Florida and Texas alone, Spring Break marketing is a huge opportunity for college-oriented brands. Furthermore, Spring Break gives brands the unique opportunity to reach college students from many different areas of the country in a single location.
Spring Break Strategy
As with any marketing campaign, going into Spring Break, it is essential that you develop a strategy that will capture the attention of students. Are you looking to do a big activation? Do you want to be on-beach or focus on nightlife promotions? What message are you trying to send? How do you plan on engaging the students and getting them excited about your brand? What needs are you fulfilling with your campaign? What will be the overall outcome of your activation? These are all important questions to ask when planning a Spring Break marketing campaign. It’s also important not to lose focus on what matters – the students. Keep their wants and needs in mind and find a way to appeal to them in a unique way that they will appreciate.
