How To Make More Money With A Tupperware Fundraiser
Tupperware? That was my initial thought, too. I pictured the Tupperware parties of which I’d heard so often – and the sole party I intended. How could you raise money with a Tupperware fundraiser if everyone had to attend a party somewhere? And who would host all those parties?! No Party Needed! Then I learned that a Tupperware fundraiser is not based on parties. A Tupperware fundraiser is run much like any other fundraiser, except that you offer a quality, durable product instead of cheap consumables. Think back to the last fundraiser you had. Maybe you offered an array of candles – or coupon books. Many of your workers felt they were pushing products people neither wanted nor needed. Instead of appealing to the buyer, they were trying to sell products that were easy to get at low prices. It all boiled down to a basic feeling that you were dealing with mediocre products, which produced mediocre sales efforts. Tupperware Fundraisers Are Successful The Tupperware company offers Tupperware fundraisers for non-profit organizations and schools – and a Tupperware fundraiser is likely to be highly successful. Tupperware fundraisers offer a straight 40% profit! How much can you raise? How much are you determined to raise? Imagine you commit to raise $12,000 for a new, public playground. The children in your neighborhood have no place to play. Parents have no place to go and play with their little ones. You need swings, sandboxes, brightly-painted jungle gyms, and some open, green space. You manage to round up a group of 200 volunteers who are willing to participate in your Tupperware fundraiser. Each volunteer is encouraged to set a goal of 5 or more customer orders, and told that the average customer will usually place an order of about $30. They believe it, and set out. At the end of your Tupperware fundraiser, each volunteer turns in orders totaling over $150. Some submit orders totaling $200 or $300. Together, your group sold a total of more than $30,000 retail! Your 40% profit comes to much more than $12,000. You reached your ambitious goal – and Tupperware pays all shipping for Tupperware fundraisers. Your Tupperware fundraiser was successful. Your public playground will soon be a reality! Products Tupperware fundraisers succeed in part because of the product’s reputation. Most people are familiar with the Tupperware line of products. Some may have wanted to purchase but did not want to attend a party, or could not find a local dealer. A Tupperware fundraiser succeeds because you sell exclusive Tupperware products that are not offered in other catalogs. People are eager to get these unique products, and order readily. Baby Boomers, who grew up with Tupperware, are especially positive toward Tupperware fundraisers. Running a Successful Tupperware Fundraiser Tupperware fundraisers are simplified by the fact that the company provides everything you need – including a fundraising manager for guidance and advice. There are things you will want to do, though, that go beyond the fundraiser packets. Here are a few tips to make your Tupperware fundraiser successful.
1. Volunteers should be clearly taught how your project will help the people to whom they hope to sell. Customers want to know “what’s in it for me” more than how wonderful the cause itself is. If your Tupperware fundraiser is to raise money for a playground, how will it benefit the Baby Boomer on the corner whose children are grown adults? She may like your Tupperware, but she should also be shown how your playground will benefit her.
2. Volunteers should believe passionately in your cause. They should be so involved that they can see little red and blue swing seats, with happy toddlers running toward them. They should have a keen desire to make that vision come true – a desire that will carry them beyond rejection.
3. Volunteers should believe passionately that your Tupperware fundraiser is the best possible way to raise the money you need. Your fundraiser manager will likely give a demonstration of the products. Be sure every volunteer attends and accepts the product enthusiastically.
4. Teach volunteers to convey the “I like you” message to every potential customer. People like to be liked, and will more readily order from your Tupperware fundraiser volunteers if they appear to like each customer sincerely.
5. With the “I like you” message, convey trustworthiness. The two together tend to convince customers that you have their best interest in mind. Tupperware fundraisers have been successful for many groups. They can be so for your group, too, but you must work smart to make it happen.
