Here are 3 actionable tips to help make your next fundraiser your best one ever.
1. FRIENDLY COMPETITION
Part of your job as an organizer is to motivate your group to sell. Why not offer a prize for the most sales each week of your fundraising campaign or a big prize at the end for the highest seller?
Simple prize ideas include gift cards, Player Benefits coupons such as “Get out of a drill at next week’s practice” or Coach Payback coupons like allowing the winner to pour a bucket of cold water on the coach after a practice.

2. USE SOCIAL MEDIA
The internet is a powerful tool that can help promote your group and any fundraising you are doing. Keeping an ongoing, up to date presence online can help you connect with potential supporters.
You will increase your opportunities on any social media platform if you post on a regular basis. Friendly, funny reminders about your fundraisers which include links to buy get the best results by far.

3. USE EMAIL
Did you know? Fundraisers that send more than 15 emails raise 76% more than those who send 5 or fewer! That’s because instead of a global message posted on social media (with no guarantee of who will see it), emails reach directly into the inbox of friends and family who want to hear from you.
Don’t miss the boat. Encourage your sellers to send direct emails to your potential supporters are watch your profits soar.
