The idea pushed its way to the front of my mind last week.
You see I was brainstorming ways to get people in my target market – elementary school PTOs and high school booster clubs – to sign up for Edvocator. I thought it would be effective to merely document my efforts to take Edvocator from a very cool concept for easy school fundraising to a robust business that could eventually provide me with retirement income. I wondered – skeptically – who the heck would want to read about my story? And, I worried that someone would steal the concept and be better at bringing it to a higher level of success than I could. Then something – something quite serendipitous – happened.
Introducing a new type of superhero! The Edvocator team!
We have “Click” who helps schools and booster clubs get supporters to their free Edvocator-provided fundraising website.
Then there’s “Buy.” She helps supporters buy the things online they normally buy. That’s right, Buy doesn’t want you to buy something you normally don’t just because it’s a school fundraiser. Buy simply asks that you buy what you normally would (after Click’s help that is).
And then there’s “Support.” Support’s superpower is remembering everyone’s click and online purchase so the school or club you support can get their donation from Edvocator.
Edvocator, the one-of-its-kind school fundraising program now offers its fundraising program for school organizations.
Now school organizations such as booster clubs can now sign up for a free Edvocator fundraising account. There’s no obligation for signing up and the first 10 school organizations that sign up receive 20% more fundraising donations that those that sign up later.
