Students: The next consumer generation

With a student population of more than 20,000 based at Reading, RUSU provides a golden opportunity to advertise to the ABC1 consumers of the future. We can provide a direct link between you and the potentially lucrative market you are aiming to target. We can help you create trusted channels of communication on which you can build lasting relationships with the youth market of today and the affluent consumer group of tomorrow.

Research shows that students are more likely to try new products and services at this stage of their lives than at any other and that once this product loyalty is achieved, it sticks. So, whether you are a national brand looking to increase your market share or a local service or tradesperson looking to attract and retain a larger customer base, RUSU Marketing can offer you an array of media solutions. These include press advertising, event sponsorship, web advertising, Freshers' and Returners' mailings, flyer distribution and more. 

Some of our previous clients have included:

Barclaycard Endsleigh Price Waterhouse Coopers
Blackwell HMV Rileys
Compass KPMG Specsavers
Deloitte Lloyds TSB STA Travel
Debenhams London Irish RFC Windows 8
