3 steps to raising big money, like the 2click guy does.

My one man fundraising account does better than a lot of our groups. How do I do it? Do I spend that much money online? Do I work that hard at it?

No, I don't work THAT hard, and I, myself, don't spend very much at all. And, here's how I do it. 3 steps ...

1. Listen to your friends and family.
2. Take 5 minutes on Amazon.com
3. Share your findings and Ask for 2 clicks.


Listen to your friends and family. When they're talking, listen intently for purchases they make. Here's an example ... my brother-in-law, Tim, is a big believer in Fish Oil pills. It's believed to be good for your heart, skin, joints, brain, and more. He tells me he has three pills a day. Sounds like a Recurring Purchase to me! Those are the best.

Take 5 minutes on Amazon.com. I asked Tim where he buys the Fish Oil pills. He told me the site, and that they had great prices. So, I spent 5 minutes comparing the prices on that site, with the prices on Amazon. No surprise to me, Amazon was cheaper. After shipping and handling, his site was $45.52, and Amazon was $40.32. Neither site charged Tax. No more than 5 minutes.

Share your findings with your friend. I emailed him, told him Amazon was $5 cheaper, and if he goes through 2click, about $2 of that order will go to help Fisher House. Next time Fish Oil pills come up with him, I'll ask if he's remembering 2click.

Fundraising doesn't have to be selling stuff. Just follow these 3 steps, and save some money, for yourself, AND your friends. Oh, and raise a lot of money for your cause!

For more examples of ways to raise and save, watch this Youtube video ... http://www.youtube.com/2clickguy#p/u/6/MN8hRWunNLY

SHOOT ME AN EMAIL with questions, feedback ... anything!! Jeff@2clickfundraising.com

Happy clicking!
Jeff, the 2click guy.

Why you should Ask Supporters to watch latest video

2clickfundraising.com is a very unique fundraiser. And, because of that, it some times takes groups a little while to "get" it. This video aims at informing and motivating them to take full advantage of the many benefits of 2click. As I like to say, "it's better than selling stuff!"

Please ask your supporters to watch the video, and we will all get off on the right foot, and have a great year.

Thanks!
Jeff, the 2click guy.

Raising money for your group with Office Depot


Asking your supporters to shop online at Office Depot is a great way for your group to make money. As you may know, I run this site as a busines, but I also USE it to raise money for Fisher House, which helps Military Families in need. I ask my friends and family to help support the cause, and not surprisingly, we are often the top earning group, as we were again in May. Office Depot is a big part of that. First, why Office Depot ...

1. They are an established merchant with very competitive prices.

2. They offer NEXT DAY free shipping on anything over $25.

3. There is a great coupon for $30 off when you spend $150 (find it at 2clickfundraising.com)

4. These are regular, recurring purchases, not one time stuff or holiday only type of purchases. Make money all year long!

With just a TINY bit of effort, your group can cash in on this, too!

Ask for full participation. Too often, I think 2click is a "I'll try to remember that" type of endeavor. Ask people to call five people(details below). And, remember, you're not asking them to buy wrapping paper or cookie dough, this is something people actually NEED. And, are already buying. You're just aking them to price shop at OfficeDepot.com (after going to 2clickfundraising.com, of course!) Tell them, if you're getting a better deal somewhere else, great! But, I'm willing to bet a large number of people will start SAVING money, and MAKING money for your group!

Who to target? Ask people to think of friends and family in small business. Small businesses are often in need of supplies, and always looking to save money. Write down five people's names and give them a call! Hey, maybe even YOUR organization needs supplies, huh? Ask around!

Best of luck, and happy clicking!
