How to Increase your Sales with Fundraisers

Posted on

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve teamed up with Cinchshare for a Facebook training!

I’ve been doing fundraisers for about 7 years now in my Thirty-One business. I do them every single month and I can’t wait to tell you WHY!

We’re going to teach you everything from WHY you want to have them and what they can do for your business, to HOW to find them!

And then we’re going to teach you how to make the most of them and FIND them! It’s one thing to book a fundraiser, but when you understand the matrix behind what to actually DO with a fundraiser-you can increase your sales, your recruiting, and hit all those company incentives on a monthly basis!

So if you’d like to join this FREE TRAINING on how to increase your sales with fundraisers, CLICK BELOW to join us this Tuesday!

Host a Thirty-One Fundraiser!

Posted on Updated on

I LOVE to do fundraisers! They are one of my favorite parts of this “job” of mine!

I’ve been doing fundraisers for about 7 years now. I’m going on 8 years of being a consultant! So everything runs like clock work when you host a fundraiser with me! I want to show you all the fun and unique ways we can do fundraisers to help you and your organization or cause.

So how do I do them?

And HOW can I help YOU and your organization?

Here’s the TOP 5 ways we can run a fundraiser to benefit YOU!

The great thing about these things, is that you can COMBINE any and all ways that you love! Combining a few different ways will ensure your team’s success when it comes to hosting a fundraiser with me!

#1 Online Party

This is SO easy! We have a link to your fundraiser on my website and everyone can follow the link to order. 30% of all orders are donated to your organization. All participants get a packet of goodies with a catalog, fliers, and order forms.

#2 Home Show

You can host a home show and invite all your friends and family to see the product themselves and order there!

#3 Facebook Event

Facebook events are GREAT to show people product usage and great ideas on HOW they could enjoy some Thirty-One in their lives while donating to a great cause. I set the entire event up for you and all you have to do is invite your friends. All ordering is done online. Easy peezy!

#4 Trunk Party

You’re already at practice, or church, or somewhere with all your friends. Why not invite them all to a special night where they can literally see all the products and order at a convenient location where they’re already going to be!

#5 Team Party

Each parent takes a hostess packet and collects orders individually and we enter as one big party! This is the most successful way. Each parent has a link to their own orders. It’s easy to track. AND…parents have an incentive from ME if they hit a certain amount in sales!

*Combine this with the online and Facebook event, and there’s no limit to what you can earn for your organization!

Fundraiser for a Friend Battling Dementia…

Posted on

Ok friends!! I’m doing a special project this month for a dear friend of mine. We’re taking donations of any amount to help fund these!

These will go on the walkers and wheelchairs for the residents at Westover. And ALL commissions from my personal sales in May are going to the Art Class who teaches a class for my friend at Westover.
Please take a look and share this so we can blow it out of the water this month for her and the other residents!

Fundraising Facts About Hosting a Fundraiser With Thirty-One

Posted on

All the answers you ever wanted to know about a Fundraiser with ME and Thirty-one:

 

fundraiser1

**How do you earn money for your group?

Earning money with a Thirty-One fundraiser is SO easy! There are a few different ways we can set it up, but you will earn 30% of ALL SALES. That’s HUGE! I’ll go over the different ways we can set that up below.

**What kind of groups can I help?

People have all different reasons for wanting to earn money for their group. I can help absolutely ANYONE!

Baseball teams

Church groups

Missionary Groups

School Trips

Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts troops

Non-profit organizations

Schools

Teachers for classroom supplies

A family or friend with a specific illness or medical need

Relay for Life

Breast Cancer Awareness (I would donate to your specific fund or research)

Football teams

Dance teams

Cheer teams

Gymnastics teams

Softball teams

Volleyball teams

Show Choirs

**What can I do to help you spread the word about your fundraiser?

You will have tons of packets to carry around.

We will have a link to your event on my main Thirty-One website that you can send friends and family to order online.

I can mail packets to individual people to help you collect orders.

You will also have a Facebook event (that I set up) where you can add all your friends and family.

**Can people earn prizes?

I LOVE to give away prizes for top sellers.  So if a group of people are collecting orders, top sellers will get prizes!

**Do you have to be local to do a fundraiser?

No. You can live halfway across the country and we can still make this a success for you and your group! I just closed an $800 fundraiser to someone whom I never saw once. I mailed packets and we communicated over the phone and email! We can accomplish some pretty amazing things with technology!

**What types of fundraisers can you do?

There are so many different ways we can hold your fundraiser.

1. We can do groups…where each parent takes a hostess packet and collects orders. Some people like to keep their own earnings, and some like one big lump sum to go to the whole team. Completely up to YOU!

2. We can also do a very specific fundraiser with just a set amount of products (usually 4-5). Our spirit line is great for this!

3. We can do a home show where I come out and set up and do a short presentation. And there’s always prizes and give a ways!

5. We can do a complete ONLINE fundraiser

6. Or I can set up at your church or your event and collect orders so people can see the product.

**Any way we decide to do it, it is sure to be successful with the two of us working together! You can also see some fundraisers below that I have done in the last 12 months!

Ok ladies!! I have something fun for you!! We’re going to try and book some fundraisers in January with TEACHERS! I have an AWESOME flyer for you. I want you to work as hard as you possibly can to find 31 TEACHERS. Do NOT give up until you find 31 teachers!!!! I’m going to struggle right along with you on this! But we don’t know if we don’t TRY! And I want that $1800 Ready Set Sell kit!!

1. So watch this video:

2. download the file:

http://1drv.ms/1OohDC3

3. get to contacting those ladies and handing out packets:

http://1drv.ms/1Ho8kTt

4. FOLLOW UP with those you sent a packet

And let’s book some parties!!

I’m looking to make January my biggest fundraiser month in history! And this is just one push for how we can accomplish that!

31 Fundraiser Packet with Some New Bags!

Video Posted on Updated on

I made up some new fundraiser packets to deliver this weekend. And I decided to use these clear plastic bags. And I LOVE them!! They’re perfect and CHEAP!! I’ll post the link for them below.

I do a lot of fundraisers in my Thirty-One business. So I am constantly looking for ways to streamline things, make processes easier, and make things cheaper!

 

 

So you can get the 9×12 bags at: http://www.amazon.com/Mil-Clear-Lock-Bags-Pack/dp/B003ZZWGNQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1440336121&sr=8-1&keywords=9×12+clear+zip&pebp=1440336124734&perid=0DPXMJMS0KP499GNJMBA

I always ask myself 3 questions when I’m evaluating something:

  • 1. How can I make this more efficient?
    • Like…how long does it take to make this packet? And what could I do to cut that time without cutting the quality. So I might make a template to use again. Or simply change what I’m putting IN the packets.
  • 2. How can I make this cheaper?
    • So assess the cost of everything from fliers, to tape, to packaging, etc. And then figure out and research a way to do it better
  • 3. What do I want to get out of this fundraiser?
    • Is it leads? Is it bookings? Is it new customers and contact information? Maybe recruits? Make your packet FOCUSED. Figure out what you want and then make sure your packets SCREAMS what you want. So a label on the front of it. Or a flier inside of it.

Anyways, this is just a quick tip on what I did with my most recent packets!

Happy Fundraising,

Melissa Fietsam, Ind. Senior Executive Director at Thirty-One Gifts
