Our first project which involved Cronton 6th Form College has been a massive success due to hard work of the students and college.
Their mission was to develop a product suitable for the outdoor and pop festival market. The students designed and marketed the product through Social Media and the results were amazing.
The college seen students inspired by the idea of getting a product developed using social media methods, (something which students are already way ahead of most business’s) The students carried out extensive market research and interacted with potential customers to ensure the product was right.
They designed labels, product fliers/posters and distributed them to all of the relevant area’s both locally and Nationally. They took innovative steps in marketing to customers by engaging with them through Facebook, Twitter and YouTube
