Use Brit as a fundraising tool. You can encourage your own supporters to help promote the small businesses that you select and you can share your commissions with them.
Here's a step-by-step example of how Brit can bring help you fundraise with no cost to your charity.
1. We'll help you set up a Brit site in your own name. This will involve selecting from our range of small businesses and adding any content that's important to you so you be maintain your Charity's values. What you will have is a Brit website that promotes a variety of online shops, tradespeople and more. All are British Small Businesses that are keen to receive any help and pay a commission on sales that your marketing produces.
2. You can invite your own support-base to help promote your Brit-site and they can earn too. We can track their input into your site so you can share your commission with them for the sales they help generate. This gives them a financial incentive or they could always opt to donate their earnings to you if they wished. In these cases, their efforts would still be rewarded by knowing how effective they are.
3. All you need to do is refer to your Brit-site in your usual communications - letters, Tweets, posts, emails, etc. You can also provide your supporters with unique links to your website so they can hand out printed literature too. These will allow us to backtrack a sale right back to the originator. This would work for people selling the Big Issue for example; those workers could hand out a business card so they will benefit from their share in your commissions.
4. With every sale tracked, any order data is anonymised for privacy and we provide full commission reporting within your own dashboard. Every commission can be cross-referenced by the businesses to their orders. Brit will take care of invoicing all the businesses and then issue a commission invoice on your behalf. We'll settle up monthly with you and your supporters. All you need to do is promote your Brit-site and we'll take care of the rest.
You can help many small businesses by effectively providing them with free marketing. Many will struggle to pay for advertising at the moment but they will pay-per-sale. With no outlay to your charity, why not add this to your range of fundraising initiatives?
Having Brit helps your charity to become more self-sufficient and provides a good way for anyone to donate through their shopping.
What is important is that you maintain your brand and your values so we're happy to work in the background. But if you want to shout about Brit, feel free!
Everyone involved will benefit. You'll have crucial monies coming in, your supporters will earn and the small businesses will grow!
