You might know a lot about generating business for your company. But what if the efforts are different than simply marketing your services? What if you’re raising funds for a cause? How do you get the most out of these efforts?
Knowing how to promote a fundraiser is about knowing how to grab attention foster feelings of investment. Fundraising signs and promotional products can be a great way to kick off your efforts. Rather than post a tweet or two and hope for the best, these fundraising products—specifically designed for you—can offer an instant kickstart to meeting your goals. Here’s what you need to know about getting more out of your next promotion.
Start With Attention
In any effective sales process, attention begins first. You have to cut through the noise and reach out to people in a way that attracts people long enough to hear your pitch. How do you get that kind of attention? An effective fundraising sign is noticeable. It should be distinct from its surrounding environment. This is why fundraising signs can often go bigger and more unusual than traditional signs—they’re usually temporary signs for special efforts, which suggests to people that the sign will be there for a limited time. The lesson here? Don’t be afraid to go big and bold with your next fundraising sign.
Getting People Invested
The hallmark of an effective fundraising promotion is that it reaches out and aspires to get people involved. We at Sign It Quick offer sandblasted/engraved bricks and marble specifically for this purpose. What’s special about these products? They can be engraved with specific names, marking the donations and contributions of those who wanted to have something to do with the fundraiser. This is a great way to get people invested. If you’re building a new space, you can utilize bricks with specific names in that space—that gives people a visible, tangible reward for their donations.
This hits on a key point: if you’re going to learn how to promote a fundraiser, you need to not only attract attention, but you need to inspire the feeling that everyone is contributing. After you’ve already attracted people to your cause, promoting the idea of the “buy-in” is critical to the fundraising process.
Go Beyond the Signs
Although signs are some of the best ways to generate buzz for your fundraising efforts, you can go beyond signs to attract attention. The fundraising efforts here at Sign It Quick include advertising specialty products like frisbees, paddles, straws—lots of fun items that people love to pick up. These items have the added advantage of spreading word quickly.
But perhaps the most important element of these fundraising accessories? They draw people in. Free offerings to passersby and potential donations help draw people in and make them amenable to hearing your pitch.
