  1. 1. UNISOOQ AN ONLINE MARKET PLACE FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS
  2. 2. Students have to navigate through a number of different channels to find what they may be looking for Everything is scattered, either online or on campus (disorganized bulletin boards) No outlet for CUNY students to buy or sell to one another leaves books and equipment lying around and losing value after completing its purpose Students are not recognizing talents of their peers leading to a missed opportunity for them to learn from one another ( tutoring , homework help)
  3. 3. THE SOLUTION A localized network designed exclusively for CUNY students to buy, sell, and exchange everything from books to ideas. Simplicity of posting and searching by school and category, no need to hassle yourself with an unorganized bulletin board. The email exchange allows both students to communicate and find a time to meet with one another on campus. A one stop shop for all of there college needs.

  5. 5. • UNISOOQ utilizes an email verification system, ensuring users that they will be dealing directly with a CUNY student. • Students can both make and save MONEY on books or school equipment they no longer need. • Meeting on campus makes it CONVENIENT for students to gather school necessities. • UNISOOQ promotes SAFETY, giving students the opportunity to meet in schools and only meet with other students.

  7. 7. UNISOOQ currently has 4200 registered users using the website. An increase in users will mean greater potential for advertising (USERS = $$$) Leveraging credibility of schools and its academic focus in order to entice corporate sponsors. Baruch College for example is a strong business school. We can reach out to big business interested in potential interns or employees to sponsor our site in order to find those candidates. Working with corporations to sponsor pages on our website. Primary focus is corporations that can provide an immediate need to college students (Chase Bank, Starbucks, Dell, HP, etc.) Contact local markets or restaurants to offer special promotions using our website. Each school has its own dedicated page, therefore sponsors can ensure there ad will be seen by students whose business they will attract. Corporate & Local Sponsorship
