With the launch of ZeeMee’s new Brand Partner Program, brands can now help reduce back-to-school stress and expense with unique offers and scholarships.
PALO ALTO, Calif./ACCESSWIRE/July 28, 2022/ ZeeMeethe number one college networking app, today announced the launch of its Brand Partner Program. ZeeMee provides a social networking platform for incoming students to connect and make friends, chat, find the perfect roommate (via a roommate finder) or view events before setting foot on campus. Additionally, with over 2,300 active college communities on the app, ZeeMee is the go-to platform for students to directly access college administrators, decision makers, and top campus influencers. Now like ZeeMee continues to provide an immersive networking experience for incoming students, it will expand to allow students to access branded offers and curated scholarships, adding more value by the time they are accepted into the school and start the semester.
“With millions of freshmen using ZeeMee, it was evident from our chat communities that students had found friendships and roommates in the app, but were still struggling to figure out how to pay for college essentials like dorm supplies, textbooks and the food. We decided we needed to partner with student favorite brands to get great deals and scholarships for our students,” said Vanessa Didyk, CEO of ZeeMee.
ZeeMee brought in a new Head of Partnerships, James Sleeman, to develop ZeeMee’s brand offer experience. With over a decade of experience in marketing and building brand, entertainment and sports partnerships in the ed-tech space, most recently leading brand and marketing partnerships at Chegg, James has immediately understood the interest for students and brands to connect via ZeeMee.
“ZeeMee totally blew me away with the engagement he has with the students,” James said. “Students actively use the app more than 13 times a day to stay in touch with friends, join chat communities and talk to influencers on campus. This has taken away the anxiety and worry for students starting school on day one because they already know people on campus. All they need now is financial assistance through access to super cool branded products and services.”
Not wanting to disrupt the user experience that works so well for students on ZeeMeethe company has thought very carefully about how it can authentically integrate brand experiences into the platform.
“Students are so above the usual digital marketing tactics and we understand. With ZeeMee, we will only partner with brands that add real value to the lives of our students. We will secure relevant and exclusive offers and scholarships to reward students at critical inflection points like joining a college community, finding a roommate, choosing courses, or attending an event. The offerings will meet the real needs of students,” said James.
