A “No More College Bookstore” campaign has been initiated by students to eradicate the hassle many college students face at the time of buying new books. It is a norm that students buy overpriced books at their college bookstore, these expensive books are used only a handful of times and when the time arrives to sell the books back to the college bookstore, student’s get very little money back, if any.
The No More College Bookstore initiative has been taken on by college students who understand what fellow students go through years after year and how much they lose when they sell their textbooks back to the college bookstore. The students behind the “No More College Bookstore” campaign have started an IndieGogo crowd funding campaign to help raise the funds needed to get the word out to other students that there is another alternative.
StudentBusinessCenter.com is up and running and aim is to inform fellow students there is a full service website which serves as a student-to-student e-Commerce hub.
The students are not limited to just textbooks; they can list and sell class notes, laptops, iPods, cell phones, dorm accessories, vehicles, babysitting, and dog walking services or anything else they wish 100% free of site or service fees via a 24 hour marketplace.
The team is determined to provide fellow students with a high quality e-commerce center which will make student life much easier, 20 year old Cali Murry one of the owners, states:
“Our powerful state-of-the-art software platform has more functionality and features than eBay and Craigslist combined and with our array of free services we are the cost effective alternative. Publishers, college bookstores and even the colleges have taken advantage of us for too long. It is time for change. Period!!!”
The website is totally focused on the success of college students. With the free membership they get a storefront to put up business logos, product and service descriptions, up to 9 pictures, a video, graphics, and link the item(s) to Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn. Students with the entrepreneur sprit: this can be a great start.
To make this website a reality StudentBusinessCenter.com need the help of others to raise the funds by donating to their IndieGogo “No More College Bookstore” campaign. The goal is to raise $10,000. To donate and for more information go to https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/student-business-center/x/7092897
I think this company may be a rising star.
