Wouldn’t it be nice if your group or organization could raise funds in a way that is easy, profitable, and hassle-free? With discount cards, all of these things are possible – and it’s highly likely that once you have used this method of raising money, you’ll rely on it again and again. Whether yours is a school organization, church group, the soccer or football team, or you’re a parent belonging to the PTA, you will no doubt find discount cards the best product you have ever used when it comes to raising money quickly, and without all of the headaches often involved with other methods.
So, why do we say it’s hassle-free? For many reason, including:
Discount cards are easy to sell, so there is less pressure on those who do the selling. Most people, unless they’re a salesman, do not enjoy the job of trying to sell people a product. Because these cards offer so much value, it doesn’t take much (or any) convincing to get customers to buy, because everyone enjoys saving money. Offers on the backs of the cards include discount percentages off of a purchase, or buy-one-get-one-free offers at fast food merchants, car care services, hair salons, the local gym, florists, family activities – any that you choose to include on the card, and that the merchants agree to. The “deals” are good for an entire year from the date of purchase, and customers realize how much they can save for spending $10 bucks. An easy sale, no pressure required.
No lugging, melting, spoiling, or chaos. If you’ve ever participated in a fundraiser in which your group sold candy bars or cookie dough, you know it can be a problem lugging around those bulky and heavy boxes, especially for the little ones. With discount cards, you don’t have these worries; because of their small size, they can easily be carried in a pocket, wallet, purse, backpack, fanny pack, wherever it’s easiest. No melting in hot temperatures, no soured cookie dough, no carrying catalogs around to customers, waiting for them to choose what they want, placing the order, going back out to deliver the order, then finding that many of the orders didn’t come in, or the wrong item was shipped.
Easy, quick way to raise a substantial amount of money. Because of their profitability, discount cards make it easier for your group or organization to raise the money you need in far less time. Understandably, the more money you keep for each product you sell, the quicker you reach your goal. For instance, how long would it take to raise $5,000 selling candy bars at about $1 profit per bar, and how long would it take to raise the same amount of money at $5 or even $8 profit per card? It’s simply a no-brainer.
With discount cards, the more cards you purchase from the supplier and sell, the higher the profit margins. In fact, if yours is a very large group, your profit margins can go higher than 100% because you get 200 cards free with every 1,000 ordered. Do you know of another fundraising product that allows for incredible profits at this level?
If your group is ready to raise funds without all of the hassles, and to gather the amount of money you need quickly and more easily than ever, make a promise to yourself to try discount cards next time.
