The fall; Perfect Weather for a Fund Raising Drive
When the fall arrives after summer, the weather starts cooling down, colors of the leaves starts changing and everywhere you will be able to see lot of activities. The kids starts going door to door selling products like candy bars, gift wraps, popcorns and other such things because the youth football players, school banks, cheerleaders, high school service clubs comes in full swing and they need to raise funds for covering some of their expenses.
At such a time, why do you need to be sitting at your home this is the perfect time to take charge of some fund raising group and raise some money for a noble cause. But keep in mind that selling useless stuff won’t get you as much money as you wish to raise, so better sell something that is of some use to the buyer.
Where to start?
Starting out is the biggest problem, but it is always better to take the plunge rather than dithering needlessly. If you go on always thinking where to start then you cannot really start, you will remain where you are. So, better start by selecting a company which provides you with the best deal. A deal that doesn’t put much pressure on you on selling things, like targeted sale and weekly or monthly targets, instead paying a flat percentage for the sales you make.
This is good for your organization because the pressure won’t be up on your head and you will get a flat percentage on whatever you have sold. One more important point here is that their product should be something every household needs, like dish detergent, cleaners of various types, storage bags, cleaners of various types, or trash bags.
When to start the fund raising?
In case you have selected a top laundry fundraiser company most of your work is done. Although you should remember that the company you selected have various methods of payment options as when you pay them only then most of the companies deliver their products. So, you should search for a company which allows for flexible payments schedule and will accept money not only through check, but also through online payments or phone transfers. That will save some of your time. Also, if the company has a free delivery deal, that would be a great option for you to choose.
The best time is the fall
The fall is also the best part of the year. During fall people goes out to field for playing and jogging, people take their kids for outings, and with that comes a lot of getting dirty outside. So, getting a product like laundry detergent would be a very smart choice and you will have a large number of buyers and huge amount of profit.
Remember that you have to make profit but without ripping off your buyers. Be circumspect about the amount of money you are charging. Don’t try to make 100% profit; 25 to 50 percent profit would be ideal.
