Pst! There’s a secret about fundraisers that YOU don’t know about. Did you know that more and more direct sales consultants are turning down home parties altogether to only do fundraisers? It’s true. Here’s why:
Today we’re going to talk about a seriously lucrative way to build your direct sales income: fundraisers.
So what’s the big deal about fundraisers? Well, I kid you not, but many direct sellers have completely left home parties behind to concentrate exclusively on fundraisers.
But before we do that, make sure you download your printable income comparison guide, yours free, just click the link under this video. Why do you need a printable comparison guide? Because you’re going to want to hold these numbers in your own hands. Print it off. Pin it to your bulletin board. Or, better yet, put it into your direct sales training notebook.
Alright, time to compare. Let’s say your commission from your direct sales company is 30%. Now, I realize yours might be a little higher or lower, but at the end of the day, the percentage doesn’t matter. Let me show you how.
Let’s say for example purposes your commission is 30%. And let’s say your typical party consists of 12 guests, who spend $100 each. This takes you approximately 6 hours of your time between hostess coaching, invitations, the party itself, and product delivery.
That gives us a total in party sales of $1,200, which is pretty awesome, by the way, and that would make your take home pay $360. Not too shabby!
Since you spent 6 hours total on your party, your hourly rate of compensation is $60 an hour. Way to go! I challenge you to find a traditional job that pays so well!
Ok, so you do a home party, you make $60 an hour.
Now, let’s spend that same 6 hours on a fundraiser. Figure in the initial meeting with the fundraiser organizer from the organization you’re working with, the time you spend delivering the participant packets, going down and collecting the packets, processing the orders, receiving and delivering the product back to the organizer… It’s probably comparable to one party as far as time goes.
But …and here’s the big thing, it’s NOT comparable as far as money goes. Instead of 12 guests, you may have 100 participants. And perhaps each of them would sell, let’s say, conservatively, and average of $50 worth of product.
That’s $5,000 in sales. Of course, that 30% commission doesn’t all belong to you. You’d split the profit 50/50 with the organization (unless you work something else out – hey, it’s your biz!) and you’d take home $750, or $125 an hour, more than doubling your hourly rate!
Now, I don’t know about you, but those are some pretty attractive numbers! It’s easy to see why so many direct sellers are adding fundraisers into their offerings. You can too!
