Between the IM capability and the contests, we've added unique value to appeal to college students. Everything is focused on what they want to see and do
New York (PRWEB) March 12, 2008
Make your College Connection at CollegeCribs.com, the new social-networking site created exclusively for, and by, college students. "Everything on CollegeCribs.com revolves around them - it's a virtual place to call 'home' for the nation's 18 million college students," says John Damboragian, Vice President.
If college is your address, or your target audience … have we got a site for you! Small Town Media has launched http://www.CollegeCribs.com, with free membership and services available only to users with .edu addresses. Members can create profiles …update information as often as they like …… send Instant Messages… plan a party or campus event … upload favorite pics and videos for their friends … place classified ads for free … and compete for prizes … all in a safe, secure environment of college peers.
"CollegeCribs regains their vested interest right away. They can personalize profiles for their immediate network, post their messages, and feel free to share favorite party photos without updating privacy settings all the time to keep their college-centric life separate from the world," says Frank LoCascio, President.
"Between the IM capability and the contests, we've added unique value to appeal to college students. Everything is focused on what they want to see and do," adds Damboragian. "They want to 'be their own group.' Plus there are built in incentives to encourage them to participate in more areas of the site, which is a big plus for advertisers."
For instance, a friendly competition for "Crib of the Month" invites users to submit their dorm room photos while other members vote on the winners. "Contestants" can campaign for friends' votes, driving users to the main advertising areas of the site. There are also ground floor opportunities for advertisers to sponsor prizes or contests. (A $50 American Express Gift Card is being offered right now.)
For advertisers who wish to target this highly desirable consumer group, CollegeCribs.com is an ideal vehicle.
