Who are Student Beans

We are unique

Student Beans functions a little bit like a publisher – but that’s where the similarities end:

We offer end-to-end media solutions.

With behavioural insights to target more than 100 million social media profiles, we propel brands before a global student audience.

Our tech has won awards.

We verify students in real-time, without them having to leave brands’ websites. Our seamless user experience reduces basket abandonment and increases student sales.

Brands can build their own student database.

Student verification is just the first step: brands receive the co-registration data of all students who sign up, building an ever-growing database to market to.

We keep our finger on the pulse.

Everything we do – from the platforms via which we engage with students to the tech we use to verify student status – is underpinned by our cutting-edge in-house Insights team.

But our greatest asset is our culture.

We work with brands of any size and our flexible structure means that we only ever offer brands a student program that works for them. We offer a basic partnership for smaller businesses, with a rolling monthly contract. For larger businesses, we can deliver a full comprehensive offering including bespoke media inventory. Advertisers will be set up with a dedicated account manager who will make your client’s success their priority, from integration of our tech through every major campaign.

The student campaign calendar is a unique one. From the moment they start their degree – usually, with a huge shopping event such as Freshers, Back to School or Welcome Week – they’re looking for brands that will define their university experience, and beyond.

We’ve cultivated the ultimate student campaign calendar, built around our own first-party data that shows when student spending is at its highest. Throughout the year, we run student-focused campaigns in line with their spending calendars, delivering huge boosts in sales and revenue for partners that get involved.
