Being over any event is hard but being a charity event is hard. Raffle tickets have always been a way to make a little extra at a charity event. A way to maximize tickets is being excited to sell. You should have volunteers who are dedicated and passionate about the event. The crowd will always feed of the people working the event. Another way of maximizing ticket sales, is always asking people. If you do not ask someone to buy a ticket they cannot say no to you. Also, you need to inform the buy what prizes are available. A good idea to is to have multiple auctions going on at once. You can have a silent auction while doing an auction. People will want to show up and spend money for good stuff. Another way to maximize tickets sales is to make it a family event. Adults will want to come the event if they can bring the children. Most adults will not want to come if they have to get a sitter. When selling your tickets, you need to have some type of special going on. One special could be something like, buy five tickets for ten dollars. That would be two dollars a ticket.
When doing a raffle, you need to prizes that people want. You need to one amazing prize, like the new IPhone 7. People want to spend money for tickets of you are just giving out junk. Many local business will give out coupons or baked goods. It benefits the other business because they are getting their name out. The business is also showing that they care about the community. Another way to get prizes is to go out and ask for people to donate stuff. Sometimes somebodies trash is somebodies treasure. Just do not accept junk for the raffle.
One way to motivate your volunteer is to run an inside contest. Who can sell the most raffle ticket. If you sell the most you could get a small prize or maybe a treat. Everyone is competitive. Another way to sell more tickets, is get people who are passionate about selling them. If the seller does not in the ticket sells how can they be excited. Another way is knowing what prizes are available. Before somebodies buys something, they want to know exactly what they are getting. You need to be able to be know all the prizes and if someone ask you can tell them on the spot. Another way to get your volunteers to sell more tickets is get them to pull on the customer’s heart-strings. If the customers think their money is going to great cause, then they will want to spend the money. When selling tickets it is about who volunteer presents the products.
All charity events are hard to have. But the benefits will have reap. Raffle tickets are one of the easiest to make money. The actual ticket itself can cost a few dollars. I believe that planning is key. If you do not have good sponsors, you will not have good prizes. And when it comes to a good raffle you need good prizes.
