It's that time of year again... the third annual SLO Fest presented by Mustang News is just around the corner. SLO Fest is one of the only opportunities for businesses to come onto campus and market directly to students. Plus we do all the set-up and organizing for you! You just need to show up with whatever you want to promote to students and have fun. It's that simple! So, if you've participated in the past you know what to expect. If you haven't participated before, here's why you should consider joining the event:

ROI
The return on investment can be easily measured. The cost to participate is $425, which includes a coupon in the 2015 Mustang News coupon book, plus booth space. Booth space gets you an 8ft table, two chairs and a parking pass. 10,000 copies of the coupon book are printed and distributed throughout campus until the end of fall quarter. Don't want to do a coupon? No problem, cost to participate without the coupon is $350.

Attendance
SLO Fest is conveniently scheduled during UU hour on Thursday, October 2nd. UU hour is the one time during the week where a majority of classes are NOT scheduled. That means attendance is always at an all-time high, with hundreds of students passing through the area. Plus the location of the event is just off the University Union, making it one of the most highly trafficked areas on campus.

Word-of-Mouth Marketing
Word-of-mouth marketing is one of the most powerful ways to connect people to your business. What better way to do that then talking to them directly. Attending the SLO Fest event is the perfect way to advertise your business in-person. And you have the ability to hand-out promo items or anything else you like to give out to students.
