Trending: Fundraising Success With Promotional
Product Rubber Wristbands
Fundraising for charities is important. Ensuring that the charity receives sufficient funds can be challenging. This can be because of the vast number of charities that require support from limited budgets. It can also be due to the fact that supporters are looking for something new in return for their donation; something that they have not received before.
Many causes have wristbands in a specific color or embossed with a particular design. Young people are often happy to wear a range of these bracelets as a fashion accessory and statement.
The choice of promotional wristbands as a promotional item for your cause will be beneficial in two ways:
- Raising funds: promotional rubber wristbands are not an expensive item but they are desirable. Many people will donate more than the requested amount due to the fact that they are not expensive.
- Raising awareness: rubber wristbands are a highly visual form of promotion for good causes and charities. When worn they can be a conversation opener. Indeed wearers of wristbands will usually wear them for a significant length of time.
- The benefits of choosing these promotional items as a vehicle for fundraising and increasing awareness of the cause or charity are:
- Low production costs ensure low costs to purchase and ensure a good return for the fundraiser;
- Low production numbers mean that even small groups can afford to use them as a vehicle for fundraising;
- Imprint area extends around the wristband ensuring space for a design or logo, as well as contact details or name of the cause; and
- Large color range.
There are ways to use wristbands that do not involve simple selling but that will increase the number of sales. This can increase the desirability and the success of the fundraising effort. The wristbands should be used as a marketing tool with a significant return on investment potential for the cause.
If an event is being organized to raise funds, the wristband could be used as an entry ticket. This will work for all sorts of events.
By having a wide range of colors or designs available, supporters can be encouraged to complete a set. Of course, this method will work well for raising funds over time.
Sell the wristbands with a lucky number. Offer a prize to one or more lucky numbers. This can substantially increase sales. The prize could be a donation from a local business and will provide them with free advertising and promotion.
Another really effective way to use the wristbands is to provide wearers with discounts from local businesses. Each time they visit a supporting business the wearer could receive a free gift or discount. This method is highly effective for local causes and charities. It will ensure that the entire community feel involved in fundraising and supporting the cause.
Using rubber wristbands as a promotional item for a charity or good cause is a very effective method of both raising funds and awareness.
