Why You Should Fund-Raise With Fraser Valley Meats
Meat is an easy sell
Meat products are a staple in most meals. There are few things that compare to a tender cut of beef, pork, or chicken. Selling such products is an easy feat – people love them!
A rep from our organization supports you through the entire process
The last thing we want is for you to float adrift, unsure how to plan and execute a fundraiser. We make sure to set you up for success by supplying you with a package that includes:
- A brochure
- An order form
- Selling tips
- Coordinator tips
There are NO minimum orders
Don’t panic and think you have to reach a quota. There are no expectations when it comes to selling!
The 7-Step Fundraising Process
Here's how it works with us:
Fill Out The Form
Receive The Fundraising Package
Each customer places their order on the forms we provide you. The brochure works as an excellent selling guide (we recommend printing multiple copies of the brochure, in case potential buyers wish to go over through it for a day before they decide on what they want).
We also recommend that you confirm everything you ordered arrived with the truck before signing the order invoice

12 Tips To Boost Your Sales
1Set GoalsBefore you even think of selling, write down your goal. Is there a specific amount of money you need to make in order for the fundraiser to be successful? Keep it in mind.
2Assign TerritoriesMake sure each member of your team has a specific area to work with. You don’t want prospective buyers to get annoyed by multiple people trying to sell to them.
3Write A Customer ListThis is especially important if you’re nervous about selling. Jot down some names and numbers of close friends and family you feel comfortable selling to. Treat them as a ‘warm up.’ Then you can move on to others!
4Take Advantage Of Word Of MouthThe power of word of mouth is awesome. People love to talk, and they love to spread news. Make sure to bring up what you’re doing as much as you can to as many people as you can.
5Dress To Instill ConfidenceIf you’re selling in person, flaunt your style. Wear clothes that make you look approachable and confident.
6Give Customers A Real SmileWe all know how terrible that ‘customer-service smile’ is. So try not to use it. Take a breath and put out a positive vibe that’s genuine. People flock to it!
7Show Customers Our Brochure & Order FormsMake sure you give buyers as much information as possible. The more information they receive, the more authority you have. Which means they’ll trust you more and buy from you.
8Practice Your Sales PitchSome people are gifted with improvisation. However, it’s always a good idea to go over your sales pitch alone in your room a few times. Get familiar with it, and make sure it isn’t robotic or awkward. Make it flo
9Don’t Overdo The SaleThe power of word of mouth is awesome. People love to talk, and they love to spread news. Make sure to bring up what you’re doing as much as you can to as many people as you can.
10Become A Product ExpertBefore you go out into the wide world of selling, study the brochure and order forms. Become one with them. Just kidding - but make sure you know about the products you’re selling. You don’t want to stand there, confused, when potential buyers ask you about certain products.
11Immediately Collect PaymentChasing after people for money isn’t anyone’s idea of a good time. It’s stressful. Avoid that stress by asking people to pay for their products right away. Of course, if they can’t, don’t lose a potential sale by scaring them off with immediate purchase. Set up a good time for payment that works for both of you.
12Be Punctual With Promised DeliveryYou already know what day the delivery truck will drop off all of the orders. When someone decides to purchase from you, make sure you deliver their order at the time you tell them. What if you want to do another fundraiser? It’s not good to lose standing with customers.
