    hey guys

    i have a business day coming up in my college i am year 10..

    i have teamed up with 2 other guys and we have to make a product and sell it to the students in our school on business day .
    and we have a budget of $30 to buy our resources to make the products.

    and we get to keep the profits we make..

    i know many of you have done this in your college ...
    DO YOU GUYS HAVE ANY IDEAS FOR A PRODUCT AS WE ARE IN DEEP TROUBLE AND HAVE NONE!
    AND WE HAVE 6 WEEKS TO MAKE ALL OUR PRODUCTS AND ADVERTISING!
    i searched google for ideas but still didnt find any ..

    ---And these are the conditions for the Business day----
    NO FOOD OR DRINKS ALLOWED
    NO SERVICES ALLOWED
    OR ANYTHING MADE WITH BALLOONS!


    AND IF ANY OF YOU HAVE A WEBSITE WHICH HAS GOOD PRODUCT IDEAS PLEASE LIST ..

    This is where your competition comes in handy.
    Advertise it and let people know/get something from it, and then more people will give you ideas.
    How much time do you have?
    I have a couple of ideas for you... Maybe some sort of cheap electronic device sold for more.
    Or seasonal cards sold with half proceeds to charity (make it a good charity!) or print designs onto t-shirts,
    stuff like that.
    I reccomend selling stationary which can be personalised..
    Good luck!

    Make an account here: http://www.cafepress.com/
    Then make your designs andmake a freewebs account with an iframe pointing to that site, I'll help if neccessary. Then YOU can buy them with the budget (cheaply) and sell them in real life

    Buy some cardstock 250 for $10, get images, go to blockposters.com and you can make very nice looking posters with a good printer, the heavy cardstock, and a lot of tape

    Publish something.

    A mini novel, an enticing instruction booklet, a screenplay for Krush Groove part 2. You'd be surprised what people sucker for. And you have low overhead.

    Just make the title something that people can't resist. Like they need to be let in on the secret.

    Gold.

    Get some nice card stock and packaging tape. (The kind that sticks flat and doesn't come off).

    http://www.metacafe.com/watch/861718/unbel...oy_transformer/

    There's also a square version that's easier to make

    Offer Advertising on the flat edges as well. You've got like 20 sides when you account for each configuration.

    50c each. There is no way to turn down something like that for 50 cents.
