We’ve combined Deal Sites, Crowdfunding and Social Media into one massive self-sustaining resource where businesses, nonprofits and local consumers all benefit.
Breakdown of the benefits for Businesses:
In the first two weeks that we started our crowdfunding campaigns to gauge interest and traffic potential, we received amazing feedback! Our website traffic increased by 600%! Now each month, we’ll be doubling our crowdfunding programs, which can exponentially increase the traffic. By being a business partner, your business and deals will be in front of all of that traffic brought in by nonprofits and crowdfunding. And guys, that doesn’t even include our marketing programs that we’ll be initiating simultaneously.
It is absolutely 100% risk free, and when you don’t run a deal it is absolutely 100% just plain free. The only time costs come in are when you run a deal, (which you only use if or when you need or want to). Each business receives 70% of their deal price. Plus, you decide the deal, can place any limitations, can cancel at any point, can change, extend, add at any point, doesn’t have to be a huge discount, we’ll help you create something that is very bottom line friendly, etc.
For instance, let’s do a deal for a fitness class: Save 80% on your first class with a month’s package for new customers.
If this is originally priced at $25/class or $175/month – here’s the money breakdown: Customer pays $5 on www.gets2give.com and receives a voucher for a $25 class if they buy a 1 months package or more. So they’re essentially getting a $20 discount off of $175. The business receives 70% of the deal price ($5) – $3.50, a nonprofit of the customers choice receives 10% – $.50 and Gets2Give receives 20% for marketing costs – $1.
Why is this a good deal? its a low “buy” cost, so its less risky for the customer. It’s only $5 and our research shows that more people are more likely to make the purchase the lower the deal price. It’s for new customers only, so you’re guaranteeing that only new people will come in. There’s no up front costs, it only costs you if you get an actual new customer. It has a high percentage off – 80% that’s eye-catching! Research shows it takes 21 days to start a new routine, if you get them for a month, the probability of them extending that package escalates. With fitness classes and programs, the costs are primarily overhead, you pay the same thing whether you have 2 people in the class or 20.
OVERHEAD COSTS = Y
2x(175) – [Y] < 20x(175-20(discount)-1.50(fee)) - [Y] Y's cancel out 2x(175) < 20x(153.50) $350 < $3,070 If you need or want more people in your class, that sounds like a pretty good deal to me...
First, nonprofits are wanting to raise money, so they’re going to be posting your deals and your business as a #businessthatcares to all of their supporters. That’s huge in itself. Plus we’ll be marketing you as a #businessthatcares and a #businessthatgivesback. PLUS, whenever a customer buys your deals, they get to select the cause that they want to receive 10%. So you aren’t just helping a random local nonprofit, you’re helping a nonprofit that your customer personally picked out. And you get to see what nonprofit was selected and can use that to promote yourself. “We helped raise $200 to end sex trafficking this month!” And the nonprofit says “this awesome company helped us raise $200 this month, we’re so blessed to work with such amazing cause-minded businesses, go check them out and tell them thank you!” And everyone lives happily ever after – but no, really.
By mixing the deal site concept and crowdfunding concept we’re expanding the reach of both businesses and nonprofits exponentially. Crowdfunding campaigns are the mastermind of traffic. At a rate of 2000 to 1, people share versus actually make a donation. So there are thousands of people out there that will be sharing the website and clicking on the website which will just increase as we add more crowdfunding campaigns. Most of which may not make a donation, but when they see the deals, they get pulled in. With all different types of causes and campaigns, we’ll be reaching hundreds of different demographics for you!
By giving the customers the option to “follow” your business, you’ll be able to build a brand loyal following. And not only that, you’ll be able to convert all of those other social media “followers” into actual customers. People are quick to “follow” a business, but most just leave it at that. But now, when you tell them to “follow” you, they’ll receive incentives through the deals to actually come in. Now instead of just a Facebook follower, you’ve got a customer.
It only costs when you get a new customer. No upfront costs on marketing projects that don’t have physical documentation on the success in terms of actual client or customer acquisition. But with this, you know, it doesn’t cost you anything until you get a customer in your door. Plus, with the customer in your door, you also receive their email and phone numbers as well as information on what charities and causes they support.
Become a part of a network of like-minded businesses and organizations. We’re all in this together, let’s support each other.
