Ultimate Fundraising Inc. believes that there are many factors that contribute to a successful fundraising campaign. We would like to address how to best increase participation levels, for any of the fundraising campaigns your organization will run, by providing ideas to empower your sellers.
Effective Methods of Motivating Your Sellers
– Insure that each fundraiser has a definite goal amount and clearly communicates to your sellers and supporters what the funds are being raised for
– Include your sellers in the fundraiser selection process
– Along with your fundraising company build a meaningful incentive program that will help to motivate your sellers
– Divide your sellers into teams of 4-8 per team. Assign a team leader who will lead strategy sessions and with the help of the team come up with a marketing plan that will best allow the team to maximize sales.
– Use of progress thermometers provides a visual tool for sellers to track the progress of their team as well as the teams they are competing against.
– Run your fundraisers for no more than 2 weeks and always run one fundraiser at a time. Reward your top selling teams at the end of each week and assign a different team leader for Week One and Week Two.
– Through the use of teams and team leaders your booster club will be working on members leadership skills and empower them. This will result in the sellers taking responsibility for the fundraising programs and more importantly the outcome and reaching the fundraising goal.
– Always do a debriefing session once your fundraiser has concluded that includes all sellers to discuss what worked and what didn`t. This feedback can then be used to strengthen your future fundraisers and the approaches used by your sellers.
