Posted by: Marketing

We’ve covered why you should advertise to college students and how you advertise on campus but a major question remains - how much does it cost to advertise on campus? Let’s discuss the cost of campus advertising, and the factors that affect how much you’ll pay.


So how much does it cost to advertise on campus?

Every situation is different, and the amount you’ll pay for a campus advertising campaign depends on several elements. These include your ultimate reach and frequency goals and the size of your budget. However, our experience has shown that there is a baseline level of funding necessary to run an effective college advertising effort. To run a productive campaign on a single campus, you will need to have a minimum of $5,000 available to spend.

How can I make the most of a limited budget?

Whether your budget is large or small, working with an experienced campus advertising agency will help you make the most of your money. The campus market tends to be fragmented with many vendors and different rules than municipal markets. An experienced agency knows what opportunities exist, what works, what’s allowed, what’s been done, and what can be done. We can help you choose the right options for your marketing budget and goals. And we have the contacts, staff, and processes in place to implement campus ad campaigns quickly and effectively.
