Finding the Best Fundraising Program for Boy Scout Units Part 2

Troop 379

Below we discuss program specifics when choosing the right fundraiser for your Scout Unit. It should reflect core scout values but also be profitable enough so your unit does not get ‘burned out’ from fundraising multiple times throughout the year on small, unneeded items, or perishable foods.

-Profit margin – high enough to surpass your goals!

-Ease of sale – is it a product everyone would like to have? Is it mainstream and a tradition?

-Pre-selling – no investment, you should not have to pay money upfront!

-Sales aids and outreach – any good fundraiser will offer sales aids to your unit for free

-Packaging and presentation – this assures quality delivery and happy customers!

Here at Mickman Brothers we pride ourselves in our easy to use Boy Scout Fundraising Program where 100% of the profits stay with the Scout Unit! Patented packaging assures the best product around, and giving back to the community with our reforestation initiative – ‘Sustainable Solutions’. To date we have helped Scout units just like yours raise over $80 million and from those sales we have donated the funding of over 500,000 seedlings to be planted in over 40 states in the US. With over 70 years of family owned fundraising experience, we are dedicated to the Scouts and that’s why we offer the Mickman Brothers Guarantee.

How do I ask People to Buy a Wreath Online?

Social Media Tile

This is a question you may be asking yourself year after year. Let’s face it, social media is taking over and it is a MUST when trying to outreach for any business or fundraising program. Luckily, Mickman Brothers has FREE social media outreach examples available in your profile that you can copy and paste or download!

Just like the photo above, a social media tile is a great tool to use to attract more customers for your fundraiser to purchase a wreath. It is a fun graphic, draws people in, and lets them know the message in only a couple sentences. (hint: use that one!)

For this tile, plus 2 other examples, as well as a sample email you can copy and paste and twitter posts you can use as well, head on over to our site at http://online.mickman.com/  and log-on to your profile. There you will find free sales aids as well as the social media outreach examples talked about above.

We include hashtags, links, graphics, photos, and what to and not to say! Remember different social media sites require different posts, it is the opposite of a one size fits all mentality! We customized these specifically for our fundraising groups and talk about how you can customize them more to include your Customer ID and groups mission.

At this time in your fundraiser, after your traditional and HGP orders are due, you should be directing people to purchase a fresh evergreen gift on www.MickmanHolidayGifts.com where your group receives $5 for each product purchased! And the shopper gets $3 off each gift as well, just by using your organization’s Customer ID as their Coupon Code!

Let’s see what your group does for online outreach!
