Student Beans Q&A: The Opportunity Marketplace

Written by Sarah on . Posted in Interviews, Publisher

oppmarkStudent Beans Ltd promotes exclusive student discounts, advice, and freebies, and provides a platform that enables advertisers to engage with students and universities across the US. Since using Affiliate Window’s recently launched publisher directory for advertisers, the Opportunity Marketplace, they’ve been able to book in competitions all the way up to June. Zack McClelland, Offers Producer at Student Beans tells us in more detail about their experience of using Opportunity Marketplace.

How many opportunities have you added so far?

As soon as we saw the Opportunity Marketplace was available, we jumped onto it. We received interest for our opportunities the very same day we posted, so we’re very happy with the service. We’ve currently added two opportunities but plan to add many more due the immediate responses we’ve had from advertisers.

How many responses have you received so far?

So far we’ve confirmed eight competitions and are currently working through a handful of responses for our student verification tool, Student Beans iD.

Has it had an impact on how you’ve been engaging with advertisers?

It’s great to interact with advertisers without having to hound anyone who may not be interested. We now know from the get-go that advertisers are interested in what we have to offer, as it’s up to them to make the first contact. The time saved by using the Opportunity Marketplace has been significant and resulted in strong relationships for our Student Beans iD service.

What has been your best offer uptake?

We’ve now been able to offer our users a huge range of great prizes through our social channels thanks to the responses we’ve had from advertisers. It’s a win-win situation for everyone involved, users get the chance to win a prize, we are able to grow our social channels and advertisers get huge exposure at almost no cost.

Have any new relationships been formed as a result?

We’re now working with many brands that we previously had no contact with. Although we are only running competitions at the moment, who knows what it might lead to! Student Beans has a lot to offer.

To see how you can partner with Student Beans, check out their opportunities in the Opportunity Marketplace– log in to the Affiliate Window interface and find it under Publishers > Opportunity Marketplace

If you are a Publisher and have opportunities to promote similar to Student Beans, you can log in and add them in your Opportunity Management area – find it under Links & Tools > Manage Opportunities.
