Salsa Fundraiser: Set Things Straight

So you’re planning on doing a salsa fundraiser eh? I know you’re already very excited to earn big bucks so that you can help out your school, church, charity, organization, sports team, or whatever. But wait. Excitement is not the only thing that will determine the success of your efforts. Instead of putting all of that excitement to waste, take the time to make steps that will enable you to set things straight for your fundraising campaign.

When I say that you need to set things straight for your salsa fundraiser, what I mean is that you need to make your efforts organized. You don’t want to be like a mouse shooting randomly in the middle of the dark. Instead you need to make sure that you’re taking perfect aim.

The first thing you can do to make things organized for your fundraising campaign is to set your goals and objectives. When you do so, make sure to get everybody in your group seated in one table. You want all of your members to have a say in your goals and objectives. This is a part of the fundraising mix that you should never forget to blend in. This is so since allowing your volunteers to have a say in your plans is a very good way of motivating them. You’re going to need all of the help necessary so you have to make sure that everybody in your crew is pumped up to work really hard to reach your goals.

The next step is to divide or delegate tasks. Since you already have everybody in your group gathered around, you can move on telling them the tasks that they’re going to handle so that all of you can work together in sync. Delegating tasks prevents overlaps and repetition of tasks, which may cause a lot of trouble later on especially with regards to money matters. When you delegate tasks, you need to do so based on the capabilities of your volunteers. If you have 10 to 20 persons in your group who are really good at people relations and sound really compelling when they’re talking, then those guys will work perfectly as sales members. On the other hand, if you have artsy people under your wing, then you can assign them to make banners, posters, and other types of ads for your campaign as this will help you catch the interest of people.

Next, get a pen and a piece of paper and work on the sales pitch that your sales team will be using to convince their customers to buy your products. When you’re composing the lines of your sales pitch, you need to do so in a way that it’s going to be short, complete, but really powerful. You want it to be short because you don’t want to bore your customers with a long speech. It needs to be complete in the sense that it should inform your customers who you are, why you need to raise money, what you have to offer, and where the money from the sales are going to be used on. Lastly, you need to make your lines really powerful. A good way to do this is through the use of the word “because”.
