Warrior Ben has a great thread (below)where he suggests selling Ads on Seat Cushions ....then selling the seat cushions to the Fans at HS football games.
That' a good one! Because local businesses will buy an ad on these and....Fans (aka Supporters) WILL BUY the cushions BUT.....I remember one I did some time ago.....one I think is Far Easier to sell and get up and running and a lot less effort!
Introducing....FAN BRACELETS (aka Wrist-Bands)
(SEE CORRECTION BELOW! We sold an average of 350 per HS Game (1500 a Month @ $5 ea) and 800 per college game and 2,500 at a Justin Bieber Concert. Stil can't get the photo reduced)
You just go to the Game's Parking Lot.....when fans come in, walk up to them ....show a handful of Bracelets to them and say;
You - "Hey! Excuse me! I'm raising money for a (local charity) and providing Fans with these great custom Fan Bracelets with the Team's Name on them (Hand them one)
Are you a Supporter of the Team?"
Fan - "You Bet!!"
You- "Great! Now you can show your true support with these terrific (Name of Team) Fan Bracelets! They're just 5 bux and you can help me Raise Money for (Name of local charity)"
(Assume the Sale by saying) "Which COLOR would you like?"
If they say a Color....HAND THE BRACELET TO THEM and say; "5 Bux, I have change for a 10 or 20!"
This is the Fastest, Easiest Sale I've ever made!
EVERYONE has 5 Bux.....for a colorful Wrist-Band with their Team's Name on it! You Kiddin' ME?
First time I did this....I could NOT believe the Interest and Response.
The Bracelets....from this supplier,... Custom Bracelets for Fundraising | Silicone Bracelet Fundraiser
cost $1.80ea for 200 and $.90 ea for 1,000"!
Note: I have since found another supplier 1,000 for 13 CENTS EACH!
I ALSO DISCOVERED I DON'T REALLY NEED TO INVOLVE A CHARITY! Fans just want the Bracelets! But...to start with, until you get more confidence in your sales ability....go to a "Small" local charity.....tell them you'll be selling the WristBands at local Sporting Events AND....Concerts....and you'd like to give them 15% or 20% of the sales.
If it's small charity ...the Director can give you the OK right then and there! If he says he will need to "check with anyone"....thank him for his time and go find anther charity.
Again....I have found that you really don't need to get a charity involved! The Fans could care less! They just want to get to their seats.....give you $5.....grab the bracelet and go!
As I mentioned....these are also great sellers at Concerts. Put the name of the Band on the Bracelets.
THIS is something you can do at most any event where there are FANS! (Band Concerts....Boxing & Wrestling bouts)
I put a photo below to give you an idea of what they look like.
This one is NO B.S.! It CAN make you a bundle!
Start small and GO FOR IT!
NOTE: I can't upload photo until I trim it down....later
