Anytime you put on a fundraiser, you want the profits to be worth the time and effort. In addition, the more successful the fundraiser, the faster you’ll be able to reach your goals. You don’t have to leave your profits to chance. There are steps you can take to get your customers excited about buying. We’ve identified some practices that help increase spirit wear sales:
Promote, Promote, Promote
With any fundraiser, and especially with a spirit wear fundraiser, don’t assume that word will get around that a program is going on. Word of mouth will only get you so far. If you really want to boost your sales, you’ve got to put the details in front of as many people as possible, both at the school and in the community. Luckily, there are a variety of ways to promote your spirit wear program.
Ways to Spread the Word
One of the most common ways to promote spirit wear sales is with signage around the school. Grab the attention of students, teachers and parents, and get them excited about your program by hanging up flyers or posters. The best locations are high-traffic areas like the cafeteria, office and main hallways. Hang them up early, and make sure they include the order deadline so no one misses out!
Additionally, most schools send out student or parent newsletters and read or distribute daily announcements. Those are great places to promote your program as well. You can reach more parents and community members if the school has an outdoor sign you can utilize. A message like, “Order spirit wear by (deadline date) – order forms available in the main office” is a simple but effective way to increase interest.
Don’t forget about utilizing the internet, either. A large portion of your target audience spends time online every day. You can let them know about your spirit wear fundraiser on social media or the school website. Social media is especially effective because Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest make it easy to share details with family and friends, and the best part is they can spread the word even more by sharing posts with their connections!
