It’s time for the annual fundraiser and you’re hosting. Last year’s was a success, but now it’s time to take your efforts to the next level. Spicing up your plans for this year’s big event is going to help you and your cause meet your goals and then some, but how can you do it? Don’t worry, that’s what we’re here for! Let’s take a look at how you can revamp your fundraising efforts for a fresher, funkier fundraiser!
One of the best ways to show your audience how important your cause is to you is to get very specific. What is your organization all about? Why are you raising this money? How can your audience help? The more succinct and clear that your answers are, the more likely they are to ring with your intended audience.
Make your fundraiser fun!
Make your event something that people actually want to come to. Whether you’re going to have music playing, kids dressed up in fancy clothes, or goofy signs, you should make sure that your fundraising event is actually fun. You can use a theme to help you with ideas. Things like “Spooky Sweet Sale” or something in that vein will help your customers to feel like they’re joining in with something exciting!
Identify and address your audience!
Part of being an effective salesperson is figuring out who your audience is. After all, the way that you would sell to a group of parents is very different than the way that you would sell to teachers. How can you entice as many of your target groups at once without excluding any of them from your campaigns? That is the age old question of advertisement.
Use your resources!
If there is a major sporting game or another major event happening during your sales season, you should take advantage of it. Connect with the host of the big event and see if you can join in on the fun!
