Soap Fundraiser Kit Platinum
|Cost per soap bar (divide by 350)||1.33|
Now that you've got 350 bars of soap and you're under budget, how do you turn all that soap into band uniforms or football helmets or a trip to Washington, DC?
Let's assume a 'fundraising price' of $4 for your soap. Of course, you may wish to charge more or less depending on your customer base, but remember: This is handmade, boutique-quality soap -- equal in every way to the premium-priced products sold by big, bath-and-body retailers.
|1 bar||350 bars|
|Profit % (profit divided by cost)||200.1||200.1||= a 200% profit!|
In other words, on sales of 350 bars, you would recover your investment of $464, plus you'd earn another $936! Not bad. But you didn't tell us how we sell 350 bars of soap.
OK, let's talk marketing. Selling 350 bars of soap, one at a time, is possible but seems daunting. Maybe there's a better way.
Suppose you band them up in sets of 5 bars each. Run off some decorative labels (known as 'cigar bands' in the soapcraft trade) on your computer printer, three or four to a page, and tape them around your soap in bundles.
You now have 70 boutique soap sets to sell, with a fundraising price of $20 each (emphasis on 'Fundraising').
Can your sales team, which is 35 members strong, make 70 sales?
It's obvious that they can -- that's only two sales per member. Of course, some will sell much more. In fact, it's entirely possible you'll soon be wondering why you only bought 75 pounds of soap!
We wish you great success with your venture! And remember, at TherapyGarden™, we're here to help. If you don't see exactly what you need on the website, just contact us. Together we'll design a fundraising program that just right for you and your group.Back to Fundraising Kits
