Discount Cards Put the “Fun” Back in to Fundraising!
Has the spark and fun seemed to disappear from your fundraising efforts? Discount cards are the number one way to raise the money you need quickly, whether it be for school, church or other non-profit organization needs. Today, there are literally hundreds of methods that can be used to raise money, but not all are profitable – or easy. Many require an enormous amount of planning and work, which can make the entire project a job, so to speak. Discount cards are the perfect item to use for any fundraising effort; the planning and work involved are minimal compared to other methods you may have used in the past.
Discount cards are so effective for many reasons, including the genuine value the customer gets and the support of your local community. They are extremely profitable, and no matter the ages of those who actually do the selling, you won’t find them cumbersome like other products you may have sold. No catalogs or boxes to keep up with, no ordering, no shipping and then delivering the goods when they come in. Selling discount cards is a simple process; the customer gives you the money, you hand them a card. What could be easier than that?
Today, economic issues have many people watching their budgets very closely. Be honest with yourself – would more people tend to buy candles, jerky, candy bars and cookie dough or a card that saves them a good sum of money when their budget is tight? The answer to that one is a no-brainer. Discount cards offer substantial discounts and savings at local merchants on a variety of goods and services. This helps the merchant attract new business, and helps the consumer save a bundle of money on things they would normally purchase anyway.
Another aspect that those who have used discount cards in their fundraising efforts love is that most of the preparation is done for them. The supplier contacts your local merchants in order to secure their participation, they print the cards up and ship them to you. All that is left for you to do is account for who you hand the discount cards out to, and you’re ready to get started! No hassles, no headaches, and incredible profits make this the best solution to your fundraising needs.
How much can you expect to make with discount cards? It all depends on the size of your group and how many cards you anticipate you will be able to sell. Of course, the more you sell the higher your profit level, so if you have a large group who will be participating your profit margin can be higher than 100%! Here’s a quick example:
Say the entire elementary school grades 1 through 5 are going to participate in a fundraiser for new playground equipment. There are 500 students who sell the cards, and each student sells on average 2 discount cards. This means you sell 1000, which puts your total profit at over $18,000! Now you can see why so many churches, schools and other organizations depend on this product when they need money for a project. Your school gets the money they need, local merchants benefit, and the customer feels good because they not only save money through the discounts offered, they are supporting their own community.
If you’re looking for a way to raise money that is fun, easy and extremely profitable, give discount cards a chance – you won’t be disappointed with the results! There is a reason why they are the number one fundraising product today. They work!
