Team Fundraisers: Steps To Follow When Doing Raffles

Team Fundraisers: Steps To Follow When Doing Raffles

Team fundraisers are basically the oxygen that keeps sports teams alive. This would be so since they allow the members of sports teams to earn the money that they need for their regular expenses such as sports equipments and uniforms. It is said that motivation is one of the most important things that will dictate the overall success of a fundraiser. This does not only apply to the volunteers for who will be carrying out different fundraiser ideas but for their target customers as well. Why is this so? This is so since the members of the group doing the fundraiser campaign should be motivated to do their best so that they will be able to make the latter flow or run smoothly. The customers on the other hand should also be motivated to give the volunteers the sales that they need. Both of these types of motivation will be generated by the volunteers.

If you have been going through different fundraising ideas for quite some time now however; you still haven’t found an excellent one that will give you the chance to raise a huge amount of money that you will be able to use on different expenses or projects, then maybe you have missed raffle team fundraisers. I am going to discuss the flow of the steps that you need to look into in order for you to make these types of campaigns really successful, so be sure to pay close attention. First among the tasks that you need to do would be setting goals. When you set goals, be sure to choose ones that are achievable. Earning a million dollars may be possible but that will take you a very long time to do. This is a perfect example of a goal that is impossible to achieve within a specific time period that you have available. Once you get to set your goals, make sure that all of the members of your group are aware of these things.

Next, find prizes and find ones that are really interesting to people. Finding good prizes will allow you to motivate people to participate in your campaign by buying raffle tickets from you. By choosing prizes that are really interesting, you will be able to increase the profitability of your campaign by drawing in large numbers of people who will be willing to join in so that they can have the opportunity to win the things that you are going to give out. After this, you need to set sales requirements for each of your sales volunteers. This basically refers to telling your volunteers the ideal number of tickets that they need to sell out. Through this, you will give your members a good idea as to how much effort they need to exert to make your fundraiser a huge success.

Next, print out your tickets. Be sure to produce ones that look professional. You need to do this because this will encourage people to participate more as compared to giving out tickets that were made using cheap paper and crayons. Lastly, set a date for your drawing and be sure to promote your event as much as you can.

Hotel CIQ in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, Selects Journeyful for Booking Engine

Singapore (PRWEB) June 03, 2014

Hotel CIQ Johor Bahru, a budget hotel established in 2010, has selected Singapore-based travel tech startup Journeyful Pte Ltd for their booking engine technology.

“Journeyful’s booking engine is elegantly designed and integrates seamlessly onto our existing website,” says Ms Thacha K., Sales Manager of Hotel CIQ. “This is the perfect solution for us as we needed a simple-to-use tool that allows our guests to make room bookings and purchase add-on services with us securely, around the clock, via our website.”

The affordable, turnkey solution was developed by Journeyful to address the needs of small and budget hotels. The booking engine is designed to fulfill a hotel website’s key objective – to convert website visitors into bookings. The booking engine was designed to be both customer-friendly and very simple for hotel staff to use. It can be deployed onto a hotel’s website, and the hotel staff can be trained to use it – both in under an hour.

“We are focused on helping hotels increase profitability by giving them exactly the tools need. The Journeyful booking engine allows hotels to secure immediate and guaranteed bookings for their unsold rooms,” says Ivan Chong Han, who heads booking engine sales for Journeyful. “We absorb the integration costs and customers pay the hotel directly upon arrival. It’s a win-win situation for the hotels.”

Hotels add booking engines to their website to provide instant confirmation to customers who wish to book a room. The cost of a booking engine is significantly lower than the steep commissions charged by third party channels, such as Online Travel Agencies. Journeyful booking engines are designed to dramatically improve a hotel’s profitability by enabling more guests to book direct.

Developments are underway to improve the booking engine’s features, which will be released in later versions of the technology.

For more information on Journeyful’s booking engine, please contact info(at)journeyful(dot)com.
