Customers love value, and want a great deal. It’s natural for people to want to save money, regardless of their financial status. It’s a proven fact that when consumers find value in something, they are more likely to buy. With fundraiser cards the customer easily sees the value and appreciates the fact they will be able to save money at their favorite merchants for an entire year. Because the cards offer substantial discounts and buy-one-get-one-free offers at a dozen or more merchants, the customer saves a substantial amount of money considering they pay a mere $10 for the card! Sure you can sell jerky, candles, or items from a fundraising catalog – but how many customers actually want or need those things, or find value in them? When customers like what you have to offer, they’re far more likely to buy; this means you can raise the money you need in far less time, and with little effort.
Easier results for your organization with less effort. Some methods used for fundraising can literally break your back; if you’re ready for something that’s easier and requires little in the way of planning or work, fundraiser cards are ideal. We’ve already mentioned how they will make selling easier, but what about the rest? With candy bars, those who do the selling are forced to carry around boxes, and worry about melting in hot temperatures. With cookie dough and catalog sales, you’re really doing twice the work considering you have to take the orders from the customer, then go back around when the product comes in to deliver. With fundraiser cards, simply secure the participation of a dozen or so merchants in your community, order the cards, and you’re done! When they come in, those who do the selling can easily carry them in a pocket, purse, or backpack. No heavy toting, no storage or spoilage issues; simply take the customer’s money in exchange for a card, and that’s it.
Incredible profits – in fact, it’s possible to earn more than 100%. For the most part, products designed for fundraising purposes usually allow for profit margins of about 50% to 60%. With fundraiser cards, profits can actually go beyond 100% if you have a very large group and sell all of the cards. How can this be? For every 1,000 cards you order, you get 200 free. Don’t worry though – it’s not only the super-large groups who enjoy outstanding profits. Even if your group includes only 50 individuals, you can anticipate earning about $3,500 and enjoy 70% profit margins, not bad for something that’s so easy – and considering you can accomplish this in half the time it would take with other methods.
Merchants are happy to participate, so you will find that securing the merchants is no problem at all because they enjoy free advertising and exposure. The whole process is so simple, customers love the product, and you enjoy amazing profits – so why wouldn’t you give fundraiser cards a try for your next fundraiser?
