Fundraiser Spotlight: Short and Sweet.

The saying ‘short and sweet’ is commonly used when something is less painful than expected. For example; wedding speeches. No one likes a long, drawn out wedding speech. Argh.

Or the wait at the walk in clinic. Imagine walking in at 2:00pm and being called in at 2:04pm. Short and sweet. No one likes waiting; especially during cold and flu season. Yuk!

Our NEW Fundraising Program is ‘short and sweet’ and we think you’ll like it!

Previously, organizations could run fundraising campaigns that were year-long, but now we offer a maximum of 60 days to fundraise. Why? Because people react better to things that are ‘short and sweet.’ We’re all busy, so why draw out a fundraiser for 12 months, when you can focus on it for just 2 months? We know that there are other initiatives, companies and causes that are important to your organization.

It’s proven that supporters are more likely to take action regarding a fundraiser if they’re given a due date to purchase. With our new program, they have up to 60 days to support your cause earning you 20% commission on their order. If their order comes through your fundraising campaign after your campaign ends, then you earn just 5%.This is extra incentive for them to support you earlier.

With the new fundraising program you don’t need to constantly remind supporters throughout the year. You can choose the time of year that best suits your organization (Back-to-School season, holidays, or targeted around a special event like a year-end trip) so that you can set your sights on reaching your goal. Easily and quickly email and post to social media information about your campaign. Social media marketing is effective and easy, and with the click of a button you can invite committee members (or parents, teachers, coaches, etc) to join your campaign to assist you with your efforts. Effectively watch your commissions grow with your very own customized campaign page.

Short and sweet.

Here are some other reasons why our new 30-60 campaign driven fundraising program is painless:

-          20% commission earned during campaign period

-          5% commission earned up to 6 months after campaign has ended

-          Fast payouts. We’re talkin’ within 15-20 days fast.

-          Build a fundraising committee within your campaign. The more people you have join your cause, the quicker you’ll reach your goal!

-          Real time results. See who’s supporting you.

-          Social sharing tools. Everyone is online; reach them that way! No more door to door!

-          Customized campaign page; upload your logo, organization info and cause details. The more a potential supporter knows about you, the more likely they will support.

If we haven’t convinced you that our program is amazing, here are some more reasons why you should fundraise with Mabel’s Labels:

  1. Parents love our labels! (And, so do the kiddos!)
    With many kids with allergies, parents aren’t so keen on fundraising offerings like cookie dough, pies, popcorn and cookies. Our labels are sugar-free, allergy-free and won’t give you that feeling of buyer’s remorse because you can’t consume our product while watching infomercials when insomnia hits. Plus, our labels help keep expensive items out of the lost and found. Invest in labelling, support an organization and keep your stuff, all while making money. Sounds almost too good to be true….but it is!

 

  1. You don’t need to be the Lone Fundraiser
    Don’t like offering to take the reins for a Fundraising Program because you just don’t want the responsibility of making it a success all by yourself? No need to be afraid to step up to the plate, we’ve made it easy for you! All you need to do is become the Campaign Captain – this means you will be the “leader” and will receive communications regarding your fundraiser. What it also means is that you will be able to invite others to join your team and share how to make money for your cause. And even better, those you invite can invite others too! You know how it goes; she tells her, who tells him, who tells them and voila, a team is born! So tell that bad taste from a previous experience gone wrong to take a hike, because with Mabel’s Labels, we make sure our Fundraising Program is a group effort.

 

  1. Get your funds fast!
    No need to gather forms and funds, tally your efforts or even get out a calculator. With our Fundraising Program you can see real-time results on your campaign page so you will know just how far away or close you are to your goal. With our campaign periods being a maximum of 60 days in length, you’re able to focus your efforts and maximize your results. Introduce Mabel to others like she’s your new friend (well, because she is) during your campaign and you’ll be amazed by how many others will want to know her too. And then once your campaign is over, you’ll receive a cheque almost immediately! No quarterly payments, means no more opening the mailbox every day for months! Check this out; if you’re fundraising for an event like a walk or run, you can plan your campaign accordingly and ta-da you’ll have your contribution well before the event.

 

  1. 4.    Make money while you’re out at the park with your kids.

Want to know how to make money while doing nothing? It’s easy! Once your campaign is over (remember, you choose how long you want your campaign to be; 30, 45 or 60 days) your campaign is still able to earn 5% commission on sales. So if there’s someone that wasn’t in the loop from the start and wants to support your cause, they can! During this Annuity Period you can focus your efforts on other fundraising efforts, like those darn chocolate bars if you must, BUT don’t forget about Mabel’s Labels. Be sure to keep telling others and then once the annuity is over, you can start another campaign and do it all over again. Or, take a break and come back when the time is best – our most popular seasons are Back-to-School, Camp or over the Holidays.

Our Fundraising Program Gets a Makeover!

Our Fundraising Program has gotten a makeover!

Don’t you love watching make-over episodes on TV? Whether it be for people, houses, landscapes or even pets – the most fun is seeing the big reveal; the after to the shabby before.

Our Fundraising Program was never really all that shabby, but now it’s a knock-out! We have updated it so that organizations can run campaign driven programs (30-60 days long) which will cause urgency to purchase and support the fundraiser. Also, organizations like a school or daycare can sign up and then have one, five, or even 50 parents or employees create campaigns to help support and raise funds! Social sharing has never been easier, and dedicated online support is available to assist you when creating your program.

If you are a school, daycare, dance troop, sports team or any organization wishing to fundraise with Mabel’s Labels, we’d love to have you join us! Offering 20% commission on our durable labels, you can’t go wrong with promoting a product that parents and kids love to assist in supporting your cause!
