It doesn’t matter whether you’re three weeks into Freshers’ or you’re gearing up for your final term and dissertation: the chances are, you could do with a few extra pounds in your back pocket.

Let’s face it: being a student can be bloody expensive, and without the healthy bank balance, it’s easy to miss out on great social events and experiences with your friends.

Heck, you may even be thinking long-term, and want to start saving up for a car or a flat deposit when you finish your course, but how you’ll fund that is a whole different kettle of fish…

If you live in the UK, then you might take on a bar job or some temp work when studying, but there’s another option that combines your campus with an income: the student marketing firm Raptor Student Marketing is changing the game, helping students to represent some of the UK’s most well-respected brands whilst earning a little extra dough for the privilege….


Introducing Raptor…

Businesses in virtually every sector want to reach more millennials and become the brand for teenagers and students, so what better way than to offer their products and services on the ground in campuses across the country?

Raptor Student Marketing is different from other marketing agencies trying to reach young people – rather than shouting about themselves on social media, they get students to become brand ambassadors, offer free products and trials, hand out leaflets and promotional materials, and spread the word about businesses.

At a time when ‘influencer marketing’ is the in thing and Instagrammers are earning hundreds of thousands for their posts, it’s great to see a good old fashioned marketing strategy returning – and unlocking benefits and opportunities for students in UK universities.


How it works

Raptor Student Marketing works with brands across a whole host of industries and finds the most dynamic and engaging students from college and university campuses across the UK to promote their products and spread the word about their brands.

The key here is offering a unique experience – students get in on the action and encourage others to try a new drink or download an app, and it’s that human connection that helps brands resonate with audiences.


Getting involved

If you think you’d be able to help attend events and spread the word about brands, then you could be just what Raptor is looking for.

They’re always looking for new students to sign up as ambassadors, and the best part is that you’ll gain tonnes of experience that you can shout about in your CV, and develop skills that can help you in sectors like management, business, and marketing.

Get in touch with the team to find out more – and you could get a boatload of perks and keep your bank balance topped up whilst you’re having fun and making friends.
