An excellent way to raise funds for your community or school group is to host a fruit fundraiser. Fresh fruit is a universally loved purchase, and families of all sizes and diet restrictions can find fruit they like through your program. One of the first things you can do when selling your fresh fruit products is to find a reliable and high-quality company to work with. At Florida Indian River Groves, we harvest fresh and delicious fruit and have a team of experienced fundraiser experts on hand ready to help you reach success. What else can you do to ensure a great fundraising experience? Read on to find out!
The first decision you have to make is what kind of fruit you want to offer your supporters. One of the most popular types of fruit selling programs is citrus fundraisers. At Florida Indian River Groves, we offer a range of delicious citrus fruits—oranges, mandarins, and grapefruits—as well as classic options like Red Delicious apples.
You also want to make sure you are working with a company with a great reputation, 100% guaranteed high-quality products, and excellent marketing materials and brochures. At Florida Indian River Groves, we offer all of our partner’s full-color brochures and other free tools to help them sell our fresh fruit products. When you work with us, you can feel confident knowing that we have a 100% guarantee for our products to ensure customer satisfaction.
Polishing Your Sales Pitch
Now your team is ready to start fundraising. Before you do so, you will want to polish up your sales pitch. An effective sales pitch can hook your supporters’ attention and encourage them to make a purchase and support your cause. A few tips for a great sales pitch include:
- Look people in the eye and smile as you introduce yourself and offer your brochure
- Clearly state the name of your group and a specific reason why you are fundraising
- Make your sales pitch personal when possible
Appeal to All Supporters
Some supporters may be interested in more than fruit: in that case, you can let them know about our variety packages that come with treats like pecans, marmalade, and toffee.
You can also remind your supporters how versatile fresh fruit products are and how they can be used to stock up your kitchen or given away as gifts appropriate for any occasion.
Finally, don’t forget to take full advantage of technology! At Florida Indian River Groves, we provide every supporter with a free fundraising website and access to our free fundraising app so they can reach out to as many people as possible.
