CityStash Storage Internship/Fundraiser Description
This project can be structured either as an internship (for an individual or small group) or as a fundraiser for an organization. The goal is to help us market our services on campus.
There are two levels of participation.
· Level 1: Simply send out a few emails to your own organization. For every one of your members that signs up, we’ll pay you or your organization $20.
· Level 2: You will actively work on campus to sign up customers. For every customer that you help sign up, we will pay you or your organization $20. So, if you sign up 100 customers (an achievable number on a large campus), you earn $2,000.
CityStash Storage is a startup that is disrupting the $25B self-storage industry in the same way that AirBNB, Zipcar, and Uber are disrupting their own industries: cloud applications, great digital/social/offline marketing, and a new business model. We deliver custom plastic containers to our customers, who fill them on their own schedule. We then pick up containers, boxes, and furniture for free, and store them in our climate-controlled facility. We can then deliver any or all items back on demand! The customer manages everything through their online account.
In the context of this project, we are providing summer storage for the students at your university. Much more convenient than driving one’s stuff home to the parents’ house!
There are several defined activities that you will execute for this project if you choose Level 2 participation:
· Place our fliers strategically around campus
· Use Facebook, Google+, and Twitter to spread the word
· Staff a “Clipboard Crew”, where a group of 10-12 individuals spreads out on campus (on sunny days!) for a few hours and talk to students about CityStash.
· Recruit other organizations on campus for a Level 1 fundraiser
· Help sponsor us to get meetings with the Housing Office and Study Abroad programs (who could help us get the word out)
· Contact and educate the dorm Resident Advisors (RAs) so they inform their dorm residents about us
· Generate your own creative ideas to get the word out!

Marketing Intern for Medical Practice
We are one of a select few clinics NATION WIDE that specialize in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy. Many people would ask what exactly is that? You would of course, unless you had it!
Peripheral Neuropathy is nerve problems in the arms, hands, legs and feet that cause pain AND / OR numbness.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy? Neuropathy means “disease or abnormality of the nervous system”, which is not a very helpful definition. We think of neuropathy as any damage to the nervous system. Carpal tunnel Syndrome, Herniated Spinal Discs and strokes are all insults to different areas of the nervous system, all with different symptoms. Diabetes is a systematic disease affecting all nerves of the body from the brain, eyes and small nerves of the heart and digestive system, to the nerves in the hands, feet and legs.
The treatment is fairly new (10 years or so), so they need an intern to help market this procedure. Only three doctors in the Bay Area are able to perform this type of treatment. It affects about 50% of diabetics and is also common among older people in their senior years. Interns can work from home and check in with the supervisor once a week, or plan out a schedule with your supervisor personally. Tasks may include:
- Help create a power point presentation to educate others about how the treatment works. Will most likely accompany a supervisor as he or she presents the slideshow and/or take control of it on their own.
- Reach out to convalescence homes/hospitals to raise awareness about the treatment
- Build relationships with podiatrists and/or medical assistants to market the treatment
- Build a social media presence
If you are interested, contact Dr. Alexander Khanin at (415) 661-1772 for more information and details.
Hotel Nikko Social Marketing Summer Internship
Location: Downtown SF Hotel Nikko
Hotel Nikko San Francisco is seeking a student who is looking for a rewarding marketing intern
project this summer. The Nikko can provide real-life experience and supply sustained business
results back to the intern during the summer, fall and into next year. Hotel Nikko is looking for
assistance making inroads toward monetizing social marketing in the hospitality
arena. Specifically, utilizing YouTube, FaceBook, etc to gain guestroom and restaurant revenues.
We have been tracking/noting what is “out there” about the hotel on Twitter, technorati,
Burrelles Luce, GoogleBlog, and trackur; and then responding if and when appropriate. Our
Facebook page is live (and currently has the greatest number of fans of any Bay Area stand-
alone hotel property), and our YouTube channel is also up. Both of these websites can be
greatly developed and made more robust, and are potential marketing channels to distribute
“friends and family” rates and other offers. Most importantly, we have a scheduled and
regimented response program for our critics, fans and evangelizers of our own guest surveys,
Yelp, ChowHound, TravelPost, and TripAdvisor.
- Creating facebook posts, keeping the fan page fresh, lively and engaging
- Initiating guest contests, and implementing operational tasks to carry out the contests
- Appropriately responding to Twitter Tweets, TripAdvisor and yelp reviews
- Adding facebook tabs (widgets, specials, reservations, etc.)
- Making the YouTube Channel more complete, with guest video clips
I believe the selected intern will enjoy working with a real budget for their project and have their
campaign immediately implemented. On-going results, feedback and metrics will be shared, to
assist with the student’s resume and portfolio.
