3 Ways to Grow Profits With an Online Flower Fundraiser

Boost your profits with a product everyone is sure to love

If you or your group haven’t had an online flower fundraiser, we need to talk. This particular fundraiser is a great opportunity that offers your group better profits, while making people happy and relieving stress. It’s a win-win all the way around! And we’re going to share three ways an online flower fundraiser can grow your fundraising.

But first…

Did you know?

It’s a proven fact that getting flowers makes you happy and relieves stress.

A 2005 study on the subject showed that within five seconds after receiving flowers, participants responded with a Duchenne smile, which indicates happiness. Not only were participants instantly happier when given flowers, they maintained a more positive mood when the flowers were placed in their home.

And another study from 2019 indicated that people who were sent flowers throughout the duration of the study reported a nine percent reduction of stress.

Cultivate an incredible profit margin

Raising funds by selling products online is easy—especially when you choose a fundraising company that gives you the tools you need to succeed. Plus, there are plenty of product options out there. You can sell cookie dough, popcorn, giftwrap, candles … the list is long.

Even though most of these products are reasonably priced, the school gets anywhere from 30 – 40% in profits. This isn’t a bad margin. But with flowers, the price point is a little lower for the consumer and the profit margin is much better. We’re talking 50%. Your group or school makes money with every sale.

Grow results without upfront costs

Some fundraisers require groups to purchase items up front, which are then distributed to students to sell. Others require a minimum order amount. While both of these options have their merits, they don’t always work for every group. With our online flower fundraiser, there are no upfront costs. Your group gets a free online store where your consumers can order and pay for their flowers. When the fundraiser ends, we send you a check for the profits.

Reap rewards with minimal effort

Anyone who has organized a carnival, auction or brochure sale can attest, the effort can sometimes outweigh the profit. We’re talking months of planning, tons of details to coordinate, hundreds of hours of volunteer time to track and accounts to reconcile. With online flower sales, the only effort required (after the few minutes it takes to setup your online store) is inviting friends and family to start shopping. That’s it.

What are you waiting for? Bring a little happiness into the lives of your friends and family and consider selling flowers online for your next fundraiser!
