WHAT WE DO
Freshers season is the perfect time to connect and engage with students when they first arrive on campus. With footfall typically between 5,000 to 10,000 there are few events where you will engage with as many students in one place at one time.
Crowd offer full end to end activations for brands that want a high level of engagement. From concept development to planning, design and activation we will be with you every step of the way.
With a network of 140 students’ unions across the UK, Crowd are in the perfect position to activate your campus tour. With an extensive knowledge of which campuses work best for your activation we can help you plan the tour as well as deliver a full end to end solution.
End to end
Students aren’t just for freshers. Crowd can work with you to run activations at a range of times throughout the year at Campuses, Accommodation, Shopping centres, Events and Festivals. Whichever route is best for your brand we will find the right way to execute it.
For some brands, activating in a stand alone environment to create dwell time and run larger experiential campaigns has big benefits. With the experience and network we have at Crowd we deliver campus tours knowing the unique nature of each University.
End to end logistics
We know that high-quality promotional staff can make a great campaign exceptional. All of our campaigns are recruited to your brief, to ensure that those representing you have the right values and qualities required.
With a significant amount of experience in hiring and managing promotional staff, Crowd has an intrinsic knowledge of how to get the best out of staff. Having spent years activating experiential campaigns we know the pitfalls to be aware of and the ways to maximise impact. The level of briefing our staff receive is second to none.
More than any other audience the student market will act based on peer to peer referral. They value recommendations from people that they know and trust. Because of this Student Brand Ambassadors are a great way for a brand to embed themselves on campus.
