How to Raise 20% More Than Last Year

About this event

How can you transform an online raffle into a tool that not only brings in ticket sales but also 20% more net profits, a list of new donors, and marketing data that will show you exactly where your success came from?

The magic happens in 5 key steps:

  1. Streamlining Your Application Process
  2. Building a Foolproof Ticketing Strategy
  3. Designing Your Event Page to Help You Sell
  4. Marketing Your Raffle
  5. Setting Your Donors Up For Success

BurnFund Bright Nights 50/50 followed this exact process and they brought in 20% more net profit and 1600+ donors...not ticket purchasers...but donors! Sign up to learn how to do the same thing.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. How to encourage earlier purchases; leading to more sales overall
  2. Effective marketing to convert current donors and reach new, wider networks
  3. How to build a list of new donors and raise 20% more in net profit through donation upsells
  4. Determine which marketing channels are bringing in the most sales
  5. Reduce your team’s time and headaches involved

Who Should Attended:

  • Fundraising professionals
  • Charities, non-profits, foundations, etc. (in Canada or the USA)
  • All levels - intro, mid, experienced

NOTE: BC Gaming policy does not allow groups whose funds are raised for work outside Canada to have gaming licenses.
