Therefore, just get them to order their products through you and you've got yourself a simple and profitable fundraising idea!

This is one of the food fundraisers that is working extremely well for loads of groups...

The Coca Cola Fundraiser:

With this food fundraiser you will be selling Coca Cola products by the case.

So supporters will order a case of Coke or other Cola drinks that you will deliver to them.

You must have an 'order by' date and delivery date set out, and make sure that your sales team has all the orders in by that date!

You will need to source your Coke cases from somewhere as well, so you will need to do a bit of research and organizing for that...

Some groups are able to get their products directly from Coke, but you may need to use a local wholesaler that will be happy to sell you products at a discount.

Use a simple Google Search to find a bulk Coke supplier...

Just make sure you do your math correctly and ensure that your profit margins are worth the effort of running this fundraiser.

Fundraising Sales:

The bottom line of any sales driven fundraiser is 'The more you sell; The more profit you make!'

And you will maximize your sales by having a properly prepared sales team and by advertising properly.

Depending on your organization your sales team could be members in your group, your sports team, or kids at your school.

Just make sure that you prepare them properly with the right order forms and a sales pitch guideline.

In the sales pitch the seller must smile and look the prospect in the eye. Then briefly explain the fundraiser, your cause, what it is they are selling, how the person can help out and what their benefit will be.

Always use the words 'help' and 'because' in the pitch! Research shows that these two trigger words can increase a positive response by over 90%.

A great idea to motivate your sales team and to boost sales is to offer an incentive competition for best sales. Have prizes or gifts to give out to the best sellers, or to sellers who sell over a certain amount of cases etc.

For more information on getting the best out of a fundraising sales team you should read Jack Atwells book "Let's Raise Money". Read my review of this fundraising eBook here.

Just remember to always be aware of your sales team's safety and if they are kids, they must always have an adult accompanying them when taking orders!
