1. Email your e-card to your supporters.

Your campaign page includes an e-card tool that sends emails to promote your project. Send an email to your database of supporters: your student’s parents, your subscribers, your past donors, your personal friends and family, and all of your contacts.

2. Include an appeal in your next publication.

Promote it in your bulletin home to parents, your next newsletter, etc. Here is a letter template to get you started.

3. Promote on social media.

Use the social sharing tools on your campaign webpage to promote your project on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and any other social media sites you use.

4. Print and distribute flyers.

Get the Dizolve Fundraising Flyer here. Email it to your supporters. Print copies and include them in regular mailings, send them home with students if you are a school, hand them out to your visitors if you have a clinic or other physical service outlet, and pass them out at every opportunity.

5. Engage your people.

If you have a population of fundraising participants (e.g. students), give them each a Dizolve product sample and share the 10 tips for selling 10 packages of Dizolve in 10 days. Read the FAQ page for more information.

Raising money with Dizolve is easy. Here are some tips to help you get started:

1. Get to know Dizolve.

Try the Dizolve sample yourself to see how easy it is. Take a few minutes to read www.mydizolve.com to learn why Dizolve is so amazing, then you’ll be ready to easily explain it to people and answer their questions. In a nutshell:

  • It raises money for your project. Your project earns money for each package sold.
  • It’s so easy to use. Just toss one strip in the wash. No heavy jugs to handle, no mess, no fuss.
  • It’s a great product. Dizolve cleans effectively and is gentle on sensitive skin.
  • It’s a great deal. Dizolve is very well priced, and because you can’t accidentally use too much, there is no over-dosing waste, saving you 33% on average.
  • It’s extremely eco-friendly. Dizolve eliminates the use of plastic and reduces transportation pollution by 94%.

2. Set a personal goal, work a little each day.

Try to get at least 10 people to buy Dizolve during the first 10 days of your campaign. That’s only one sale per day. If you work at it just 10 minutes every day, you’ll be amazed at what you can accomplish, and how much money you can raise for your project.

3. Sell to your family first.

Ask your parents, grandparents, aunts & uncles, and everyone else close to you to visit www.mydizolve.com to learn about and buy Dizolve. Don’t forget relatives who live far away; Dizolve ships to anywhere in Canada or the U.S.

4. Show and tell.

Use a sample of Dizolve to show people how small a single strip is and what it feels like. It’s amazing that so much cleaning power can be packed into such a tiny thing.

5. Email the e-card to everyone you know.

Your campaign page includes an e-card tool that sends personalized emails that include a link to your campaign page. Add a personal message to the email that asks for support.

6. Talk to your friends and neighbours.

Spread word of your campaign to your neighbours, and at school and work.

7. Post on your Facebook page.

Your campaign page also has social sharing tools. Share the link to your campaign page in a post. Put it in your own words but keep it simple and to the point, for example: “I’m raising money for our school’s new playing field by selling this awesome detergent. I tried Dizolve myself, and it’s great. Can you support our project? Visit www.mydizolve.com to check it out. Thanks!”

8. Text, chat, and share it some more.

Send notes to everyone you know. Post on Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and any other social media sites you use.

9. Be persistent.

Check back with your friends and family after a week. Politely ask them if they had a chance to look at the website yet, what they thought, and if they plan to buy.

10. Get your friends to help spread the word.

Ask your friends and relatives to forward the e-card by email, post on Facebook, tell their friends, share at work, etc.

Get started now.

However you do it, just start telling everyone you know about your fundraising project and how great Dizolve is.

The new Dizolve Fundraising Program

Dizolve-Fundraising-P In 2012, we supported fundraising campaigns at a handful of Moncton-area schools. Students sold special 74-load packages of Dizolve door-to-door, and it was a huge success. 500 students from one school sold 2,500 packs of Dizolve in 10 days and raised over $10,000 for the school, making it one of the most successful fundraisers they had ever run. When we realized that 64-loads of the new Dizolve laundry detergent strips could be mailed in a small envelope at low cost, we knew we were on to something big. We recognized an opportunity to help schools and nonprofits fundraise on a much bigger scale. Fundraisers can take advantage of the power of email, Facebook, and other online tools to easily spread the word about their cause, and offer their supporters a great product that is needed on an ongoing basis. We are also very excited that we can offer a much more sustainable alternative to traditional laundry care products. Read more about our new fundraising program.
