Back-To-School College Advertising: The Complete Guide 2019

Back-To-School College Advertising: The Complete Guide 2019

Back To Campus Advertising

Believe it or not, the end of summer is not too far away. Soon enough, millennial students will be moving back on campuses across the nation. Even though August and September still feel far away, starting to think about back-to-college campus advertising is crucial to success when those months roll around.

But why should business think about advertising to millennials in the first place? Well, there are currently 8 million millennials in the U.S. alone. Being nearly one-fourth of the total population, they have an annual buying power of $200 billion. So, with your business’s advertisement being displayed on college campus across the nation, you gain immense exposure. Ultimately, back-to-college advertising is lucrative and provides ROI.

Not only do millennials (and all college students) have great buying power, but they also spend an average of 10.6 hours per day on campus. That means that there are captive buyers on campus that could be seeing your ad every morning as they walk to class. Talk about exposure!


Millennial marketing doesn’t need to be complicated. At MSSmedia, we are campus media experts who understand how to place your ads in front of those students who are ready to buy.

Traditional and Digital Advertising.

We are campus media experts, through and through. That means that we, of course know our way around traditional campus advertising. Bike shelters, newspaper kiosks, bus wraps – you name it! We own assets nationwide on campuses in both the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Traditional advertising has the power to gain exposure and impressions as students walk throughout campus. As one of the first advertising touch points, traditional advertising increases your brand awareness. For the back-to-school season, we also offer digital advertising. Because, as we all know, millennials are attached to their phones. We work with nationwide partners to place your ad in thousands of apps and across all social media channels. And, not only do we place your ad in-app, we know how to continue that exposure onto search and display campaigns through Google. Want to know more? Check out our work here.
