4 reasons to join our campus rep program and start helping your peers in med school handle Step 1 study planning.

At Cram Fighter, our Campus Heroes Program allows medical students to become ambassadors for Cram Fighter at their campus. Over the course of our 7+ years providing board exam study planning software, we’ve consistently achieved high customer satisfaction ratings from our customers. So we’ve empowered our medical student customers to become advocates for our brand, while also helping their classmates! Here are 4 reasons why you should consider becoming a Campus Hero for Cram Fighter.

1. Help your classmates with a significant discount on study planning software

We provide Cram Fighter Campus Heroes with a 20% off coupon code that they share with their med school classmates. We know med school is expensive, and we’re happy to be able to offer this discount to help students purchase Cram Fighter for less. Last year, almost 70% of our Campus Heroes told us that the reason they joined the Campus Hero program was to help their classmates out with a discount!

2. Earn rewards such as gift cards

While our Campus Heroes are certainly motivated by helping out their fellow students, they also earn personal rewards. We offer a small financial incentive to Heroes for each new Cram Fighter subscriber that redeems the coupon code at their med school. Campus Heroes earn e-gift cards every month as a reward for helping spread the word on their campus and driving signups.

3. It’s a very low time commitment

We know medical students are extremely busy and their personal time is limited. So we don’t ask our Heroes to spend a lot of time working on this program (e.g. by doing presentations, actively posting ads or flyers, holding events). Instead, we simply ask that they have some familiarity with Cram Fighter and have, at the minimum, set up their own schedule using our free 7-day trial. Then, once they join the program, we ask that they share the coupon code with their classmates regularly but without being intrusive. Most Heroes share their coupon code and info about Cram Fighter to their school’s Facebook pages, study groups, or Instagram. It’s that simple. Last year’s Heroes reported that most post the code about once a month.

4. We provide the assets and support you need

To make it as turnkey as possible for new Campus Heroes, we also provide marketing assets such as links, suggested messaging, and images for Heroes to copy and paste if they want to share Cram Fighter discounts on their own social media. We also maintain an active private Facebook page for Heroes to stay up to date on any new Cram Fighter features, which they may share with their classmates. We also post ideas for promotions. And Campus Heroes have a designated point person at Cram Fighter to contact for help or questions. Finally, for each medical school with a Hero, we create a custom school URL for them to share with classmates, which offers study stats specific to that med school, along with a reminder of that school’s coupon code. Classmates can consult these pages as a starting point for building their study plans.

If you’re ready to help out your medical school classmates with a discount and earn rewards for yourself, apply to become a Campus Hero today.
