Flowers are easy to sell not only because they are beautiful, but because they appeal to modern mindsets regarding green living and an eco-friendly existence. No matter what size your group or what your financial goals are, you can do really well with flower fundraising if you do it the right way.
Educating your fundraising team is a great way to make sure that they go out in the field knowledgeable, and ready to share that knowledge with others. When you order your free brochures and order forms for your fundraiser, we will also send you planting instructions for the bulbs.
Your supporters could read this information themselves, certainly, but it is a much better idea if your fundraising team members know exactly how to plant the bulbs correctly, so they can field any questions your supporters might have. People want to feel like they're buying from someone who knows what they're talking about, and it doesn't take much time or effort to get everyone up to speed.
Another good idea for flower fundraising is to get familiar with the different types of bulbs in your brochure, and which ones produce which flowers. Again, it adds a lot to your selling power if your sales team knows exactly what they're selling, and how they can best clarify things for your supporters.
Flower fundraising does not have to be difficult, and there is not a tremendous amount of studying involved, but if you make that little bit of extra effort to learn what your products are all about, your flower fundraising will go much more smoothly, and will be more likely to have a higher level of success.
