Use Brit as a fundraising tool. You can now encourage business sponsorship by means of helping them to help you. What is more, your own supporters can help promote the the businesses that you select and you can share your commissions with them.
Here's a step-by-step example of how Brit can help you fundraise with no cost to your charity or to potential new business partners.
1. We'll help you set up Brit within any ecommerce site that you want to work with. You can also utilise the range of businesses already in Brit that you feel match your Charity's values. What you will have is a Brit website tracking system that allows you to promote your choice of online shops. It gives you an easier way-in to ecommerce sponsors as they will be set up to only pay per sale and you'll promote them to help generate sales too.
2. You can invite your own support-base to help promote the businesses you want to work with and they can earn too. We can track their input so you can share your commission with them for the sales they help you generate. This gives them a financial incentive or they could always opt to donate their earnings to you if they wished. Both options are strong motivators and mean their efforts would be rewarded.
3. All you need to do is add links in your usual communications - Tweets, posts, emails, etc. We can also explore unique links to a page on a dedicated website so you can distribute 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 fundraise AND help 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?
Using 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 businesses will grow!
