How to Promote Your Candle Fundraiser

Post Icon Posted on 11/03/2009 by Howard Gottlieb
There is no way to guarantee that you will have a successful candle fundraiser.

There are just too many factors that go into the sales of a candle fundraising program that are out your hands. But, there are a number of things that you can do that will seriously help your chances of having a terrific candle fundraising experience.

First, pick a program that will appeal to your customers. This means that you need to consider everything from pricing, to scents, to what the candles are made of. We find that for any type of fundraiser, a price between $10 and $20 leads to the most sales. There are a lot of candle fundraisers out there with a bunch of different scents for the candles. Just pick the one that sounds the most appealing.

The best candles are made from soy based waxes because it burns cooler and longer so it is best to find a candle fundraiser offering soy based candles. Soy is also a more environmentally friendly material from which candles are made.

Another thing you can do to make your candle fundraiser better is promote it to anyone and everyone, anywhere and everywhere. Directly soliticing sales from people will be your best bet to drive sales, but if you can market your fundraiser and get some people coming to you it makes things much easier.

For example, if you are doing the fund raiser at your church, you can advertise in the bulletin for people to buy at the table outside the sanctuary instead of asking each person individually to buy something.
