Let’s start – good causes.
It’s worth remembering, connect to a charity you are passionate about to help the raffle/competition gain free publicity. Ensure the charity you choose has proper resources and manpower, otherwise you’ll end up doing all the hard work yourself.
When shortlisting the best charities to connect to for your raffle/competition, here are the 8 key factors to keep at the forefront of your mind:
// Key factor 1
Choose a registered charity you like and believe in.
// Key factor 2
Look for charities in your local area, or those with a local division, they will provide a direct benefit on your community, rather than national ones.
// Key factor 3
Ensure the charities you are looking at are FUND WORTHY – remember, entrants are firstly buying a ticket to win a property, secondly they will take a chance not winning to support a charity’s cause that they like.
// Key factor 4
Select charities that have an emotional appeal.
// Key factor 5
Check local media websites for which charities are receiving plenty of good stories.
// Key factor 6
Look for charities over 2 years old – the younger the charity, the fewer resources they are likely to have.
// Key factor 7
Check which charities have low paid chief executives and who are media active.
// Key factor 8
Select charities with a strong track record for raising funds.
Now, much to what we’ve highlighted in this video is published within our co-authored book, Raffle Property: Your Winning Guide to House Competitions (for entrants, property-owners and charity organisers).
This book gives entrants the winning formula to answer competition questions – guides organisers through legal differences between raffles and competitions. It’s available at Amazon in eBook, paperback and special edition hardback.
So, thank you for viewing this video.
We look forward to reading which property events you have either entered or organised.
