Product Marketing question by Jessica: What’s a marketing product for college students?
I’m taking a marketing class and need to think of a product or service and then come up with a commercial and prototype.

I teach marketing at the college level :)

Something involving alcohol would be cool but you might want to think of other things that would appeal to students. Think of things that you wish were out there.

Examples:
– pizza delivery right to your classroom during breaks – order via text msg or schedule a deliver online
– coffee service in the main hallways
– a service where you can plug in your laptop or cellphone and get a quick recharge (ideal when you forget your power adapter)
– a backpack that easily locks onto a desk so you can leave it and not worry about getting it or the contents stolen
– valet service for when you’re late for class and can’t find a parking spot
– a pencil and eraser combo that is part of a USB stick
