Tracking brochure sales keeps students focused.
If you know where you want to end up, knowing if you're tracking correctly to reach your destination is essential.
Hoping your students are out selling is not a good approach. You would probably do just as well by rolling the dice and wishing for the best.
Instead, wouldn't it be nice to know how your fundraiser was progressing before the order forms were turned in?
Since success is determined by your group's ability to reach its sales goal, you should track your fundraising progress. You can, in essence, do more than remind your students to sell.
Tracking student progress allows you to do three things. One, it gives you a barometer, two, it creates accountability; and three; it breaks the sale down into smaller goals. Here's how it works:
Announce Your Tracking Plan
At your kickoff, announce that you will check each student's progress three times during your sale:
- The day after the kickoff (day 1)
- At the halfway point (day 7)
- On the last day (day 14)
Remind them the day before each check-in day to bring their order form and money envelope.
Check Student Progress
- Ask your students to present their order forms and money collection envelopes on your three check-in days. This is to see if they are keeping up with their sales.
- Your check-in days allow you to incorporate an additional incentive, like the money game. This will motivate your sellers to exceed their check-in day goals.
Update Your Fundraiser Progress Tracker
We provide a fundraiser progress tracker before your kickoff that will help you track your sale. You can record each student's sales at each check-in day and thus see how well your sale is progressing.

Our experience with y'all has been fantastic!!! Everyone in the office has been so helpful, especially with our endless questions! We really loved that the products came in already boxed with the students name, teacher and grade on a label! You have no idea how much stress that took off! That is always one of the biggest hassles!

The School Fundraising Guidebook provided by Big Fundraising Ideas is a life saver. As a full-time school district employee with many hats to wear, this guide’s efficiency helps our fundraising run on its own. The guide includes everything needed for a successful fundraiser. I enjoy the convenience of pulling out pre-made forms; making copies and sending them home with the students. It is an easy to follow, self explanatory manual that makes fundraising the successful task I didn’t mind taking on. This guide takes you that extra mile to meet your organizations needs, with little effort by following the time-line and instructions included. Many thanks to those who created this time saving guide which helps us achieve our goals.
