Custom Car Magnet Fundraiser vs. Selling Flowers Fundraiser
When it’s time to choose your fundraiser, you’ll have plenty of options to consider. Two of the best options include selling custom car magnets and selling flowers.
These are two very different types of fundraisers, however. Making the right decision between a custom car magnet fundraiser and a flower fundraiser will help your group raise the necessary cash.
Let’s look at both types of fundraisers to help you make the correct decision.
Custom Car Magnet Fundraiser
A custom car magnet can be sold for a large profit margin, especially if you order in larger quantities of 300 or more. They don’t need to be stored and you can hand them to each purchaser as they buy them.
Not only will custom car magnets help you raise money, but they will also help you spread awareness for your group. You can even partner with a local business as a sponsor to cover the cost of the magnets.
When you choose to sell flowers or flower bulbs, you will get an eco-friendly fundraiser with little risk. Flowers are riskier than selling flower bulbs because they need special care.
Flower bulbs require you to take orders and fill them. A flower fundraiser may provide you with the ability to sell on the spot, but you won’t be able to keep fresh flowers for long.
Typically, groups will do a flower bulb fundraiser and take orders. This means you will need to collect payment and fill orders once you receive the bulbs.
Which Makes More Money?
The big question for many groups is which fundraiser will make us more money? Comparing custom car magnets to a flower fundraiser provides a pretty clear answer.
Flower fundraisers typically come with a 50% profit margin, while custom car magnets have a profit margin ranging from 100% to 400% or more. In addition, you can partner with a sponsor for custom car magnets to cover the cost, while it’s harder to do this with a flower fundraiser. The sponsor can include their logo or business name on your magnet, which cannot be done with flower bulb fundraisers.
Along with the higher profit margin, custom car magnets are easier to sell to a larger audience. With a flower bulb fundraiser, you have to find people willing to plant flowers. Even with just a flower fundraiser, you still have to find people that like flowers and are not allergic to what you’re selling.
Which is Easier?
Do you prefer to take orders, and then track down those orders to deliver their flower, along with collecting payment? Maybe you’d rather take payment and hand the person a custom car magnet on the spot.
Selling custom car magnets is easy and you won’t need to take orders. Just collect payment and deliver the magnet at the same time. It’s easy, the magnets can be sold for a low price, and there’s no doubling back to deliver the order.
