Our goal at Freedom Fundraising is to help you meet your fundraising goals as quickly as possible. Here are tips we’ve gathered from some of our most successful customers about running a smooth fundraiser.
Who wouldn’t like to speed up their fundraiser?
Get your fundraiser in front of the largest crowd that you can. Think about how you can organize your sellers so that they are in front of as many groups as possible and can get your products in front of new donors who will help your group.
Donors who have made a purchase before are an asset to you. Previous purchasers can be reliable for additional sales. If you know people who have purchased from you in the past, let them know that your fundraiser is starting again. You can tell them about the returning items that they like as well as new items they may be interested in.
Setting up a table near crowds
Try to place your fundraiser near an event where people will want candy and snacks! Think about plays, sporting events, school dances, and church events. These are events where large groups of people gather and many would enjoy a snack and feel good about helping a worthy cause.
It’s always a good idea to set up a table where there are large crowds. Your setup attracts attention, and your sellers should be good at explaining how your fundraiser will help your group.
What to sell
It can help morale if your sellers really like the item that you sell. Candy fundraisers are still the number one selling fundraiser, and they remain popular with kids and adults alike.
Our $2 Chocolate Bar Variety offers 60% Profit for a limited time! They come in 5 delicious flavors and are a customer favorite.
Think about choosing the highest profit margin product you can find when deciding on a fundraiser because a higher profit margin can make a giant difference to your fundraiser. It can help your group make more money and cut down on the time you have to spend selling.
Our Create Your Own Varieties allow you to choose your own variety of our proven, best-selling candy and snack brands. Personalize your case and sell items you already know your customers want. This is a tremendously helpful option when you know your audience well, whether it’s a student body, church group, or event-goers.
If you plan on getting a lot of sales from parents, consider a brochure fundraiser. Conveniently parents can avoid carrying large amounts of products when they take brochures to work. Once parents have received orders, they can deliver items to donors. This option leaves little work to be done up front by the parent. It’s a super convenient way to get parents involved!
Planning and consideration of how many sellers you have, what kind of display you are able to use, and you can find large crowds will help you have a successful fundraiser that will meet your goals.
