Homecoming means school spirit, alumni, and sports to most people but it can also mean good news for your bank account if you capitalize on all the excitement.
If you’re enterprising and willing to work while all the fun is happening BE Next has some suggestions on how you can turn your college’s annual reunion into a gold mine.
1. Host an event or party
Hosting a party during your college’s largest alumni gathering is a sure bet to bring in extra cash. Find a venue that allows outside contractors like a lounge or local coffee shop. After you have negotiated the terms of the contract, your next step is market your event to the masses. Print flyers, distribute them and then take to Facebook and Twitter and spread the word about event and your party just might be a success.
Quick Tip: Have the party on the Friday before the big game. Most alumni head to the city a day earlier and are ready to mix and mingle.
