Some Reasons You Should Consider Candles For Your Fundraising Needs

Aug 17, 2007
Fund raising is a grand device to raise the much needed cash in aid of any group. It's further a totally warm path to earn financial support for a good purpose. Members are also forced to meet with the general public. For most young persons, this could be an introductory session in sales promotion.

Candles are among the most significant fund raising items. They have a very wide appeal and are truly easy and fun to sell and can be used to generate huge profits. They are a lot better than most other items because they are easily affordable. This reduces the difficulty in convincing folks to buy some in support of a vision making it a preferred choice over more expensive and equally less profitable items. It is also a lot better than fund raising campaigns that use food as their bait. Food can easily waste and people are now more careful of what and how they eat.

It pays off a lot more because they come in various colors, shapes, sizes, fragrance, etc. They also have a larger following because of the many positive attachment people have to them. Fund raisers can brand them in their color and sell them to their fans or supporters. For those who have to do with religious groups, they can be sold in connection to a sacred occasion or personality.

If you are contemplating using candles for fund raising, you'll do well to ask around for the best deals. A lot of issues have to be settled before hand to ensure a hitch free event. It is also a good idea to ask those who have achieved a level of success with candles as a fund raising item. Companies and manufacturers who have been involved with such are better choices as they will point out a few things you might have left out. A few questions to ask will include the selling price, the colors, size, shape and scent you'll order. You also have to predetermine how many candles each participant is expected to sell. There are many candle manufacturers who support fund raising campaigns. Do a search online to find those of them that are online.

Ensure your main objective is clear and that everyone involved knows what it takes to sell. Let them understand that there may be a few rejections. Let them know they may meet a few nasty fellows and, moreover, show them what to do if they find themselves in such situations. It is also a good idea to do mock sales among yourselves to simulate certain live situations and have everyone make a suggestion on possible responses. Everyone should have all the tools they need for the promotion. Let everyone know that the success of the fundraising depends on them.

You can raise reasonable amounts in your fund raising if you give attention to a few details, make sure everyone does his bit and if you sell at a good price.
