Three Important Sales Tips
- Assign each member of your group 2-3 books to sell. Allow them at least 30 days to sell the tickets.
- Leverage your organization’s value to the community. Volunteers should make it clear what the sales are for. The more familiar people are with the cause or your organization, the more likely they are to buy tickets.
- Inform the prospects that for every $20 donation, they will receive a raffle ticket for a vacation get-a-way.
- Invite a volunteer from the Chamber to explain the details of the program to your group.
- Combine raffle ticket sales with other activities of the organization. Does your group sponsor a fall carnival, dinner, sports tournament or other event? Set up a booth at these events to sell tickets.
- Sell tickets at your regular group meetings, and keep everyone up to date about the campaign’s progress
- Set up booths at local fairs and grocery stores.
- Have a reasonable timeline for sales. A minimum of two or three months selling period is ideal.
- Recruit a committee to help with sales and promotions.
- Set a dollar goal.
- Send out e-blasts to members/students/parents announcing the raffle.
- Place a blurb about the raffle in your newsletter or website.
