Have an Avon Raffle

I just had a chance to participate in a school

fundraiser by purchasing a raffle ticket.

The prizes are cash. I thought....I could do the same

thing with Avon and have the prize be Avon Products!

Here is my idea...

I am going to let all my customers know that I am

sponsoring an Avon Raffle with the Grand Prize

being $100 in AVON, winners choice.

Here is how I will set it up:

Anyone wishing to participate will automatically get 1

entry for every 20 tickets they sell.

I will have a prize for anyone who sells over 50

tickets and a prize for the most tickets sold.

Prizes will be as follows:

Lets take a look at how this can increase your sales

and your profit:

If you have 10 people selling 10 tickets each at $1

per ticket you would have collected $100.

The prizes will cost retail...$100 grand prize PLUS

$10 most tickets sold = $110.

If this is the total of your PO you would be at 30%

earnings level, which means that it would

cost you $77.00 for the prizes. That leaves a total of

$23.00 profit!

The above is at the lowest earnings you can achieve

for the example. Think about if you sold twice as many tickets (200 total).

The prizes would cost you at the most $120 retail

(figuring that you would give away a prize for

selling

50 tickets). Your sales for your PO

would now be at $200, which puts you at 35% earnings

level. It would cost you $78 for the prizes

and I would take the left over $122 and buy product at

a discount which I can turn around an sell for a 35% profit.

That means you will make $122 your original earnings Plus $42.70

profit on the sales = $164.70.

If all my figures are corect in the above example an

Avon Raffle would be an excellent way to not

only gain new customers but to also increase your sales!

I am not in any way an expert on math...but I do like

to play with numbers. So, before you undertake

a contest like the above you need to sit down and do

your own figuring...just to make sure my figures are not wrong.

Also, this type of contest is a "chance". If the

people you have selling raffle tickets only sell

$10 worth...you still have to give away $100 worth of

Avon products. If you are worried about not

selling enough tickets I would turn the raffle into a

50/50 raffle. Meaning that 50% of the money

collected will be the amount of Avon they can choose

and 50% will be used for prizes for the raffle ticket sellers.

Good Luck!!
