Finally, Something New

Non-profit organizations realizing the power of e-commerce. An innovative way to raise funds without asking for a traditional donation. Can you say, cutting-edge?

eCommerce to the Rescue

Imagine the impact...
a non-profit could have on their revenue if they owned a unique shopping portal and had just 1,000 supporters use it for their online shopping needs.

If you can't imagine, let me help you...
If these 1,000 supporters spent approximately $100 per month in online shopping from stores they know and love, they would shockingly generating revenue for their non-profit in the realm of $1,600 monthly and $19,200 annually. All without asking for a traditional donation.

What could this do to the face of non-profits?

Leveraging e-Commerce

Thousands of big name retailers are paying cash back to online shoppers who link to them via portals with affiliate agreements. Non-profits are getting wind of this concept and using its technology to increase donations.
Here's how it works: non-profit creates a turn-key portal through a company like Retail Benefits, online shopper links from the portal to retailers official website to shop as normal, retailer pays cash back based on purchase price, shopper and non-profit share the cash back
In times when needs are up and resources down, this solution could provide a new and easy way to generate much-needed financial support without making a traditional donation.

Trust is a Must

Do you meet new people wherever you go? Do you know how to build rapport, establish a new relationship and get them to trust you? Easy for some, painful for others...but a MUST if you're in sales. The truth is, most people miss these basic communication skills and wonder why they're lacking leads. Embrace these simple steps and enjoy the doors that will open for you.

1. Smile - This is HUGE! Your smile is powerful and changes the environment around you. People will gravitate to you saying, "I want what she's got."
2. Encourage - Make people feel good. Give a compliment... about ANYTHING. You can make someones day at any moment. Do it. They will then engage with you because they want more.
3. Be genuinely interested - This is difficult if you share no common interests. Can you hang in there and make a connection? Don't be the most important person in the relationship, let them be.
4. Listen and pay attention - Did you know that when you allow someone to talk about THEMSELVES, they begin to trust YOU? Understanding this fact gives you a strong advantage. Master it...and don't ever interrupt.
5. Control the conversation - The one asking the questions is the one in control. Don't assume you know it all. Keep them talking about themselves as long as possible.

Now ask yourself, "What can this new relationship lead to?" Perhaps you just built rapport with your next SALE! People will do business with others they like, know and trust. Let that be YOU.
