Fundraising ideas for schools

In 2019, with rapid growth in online retail, anyone serious about school, club, charity or church fundraising needs to think about ways to get a slice of the action online. For too long these organisations have had to rely on high effort, low return fundraising initiatives like selling chocolate bars. Thankfully innovative new platforms like Rewardhub have emerged to make it easy for any good cause to raise funds via online retailers.

Affiliate marketing fundraising

Affiliate marketing is an excellent way for these good causes to raise money via online transactions. While it may sound complicated for those not familiar with affiliate marketing, the reality is it is very simple. Simply put, an Affiliate can be anyone with an online community, like a website, email database or social media page. Affiliates sign up to affiliate networks to access tracked links which they promote to their users. When users click on an Affiliate’s link and go through to an advertiser website to make a purchase, the affiliate earns a commission.

For example an affiliate might post a tracked link on their a Facebook page saying “Hi everyone, go buy a Christmas Tree here and we earn a 15% commission to raise funds, while you also get a $10 discount!”. In this example the affiliate program may have also included an exclusive discount for you to offer your audience as an incentive to click. When someone clicks through and buys a tree you earn 15% of the sale value.

So, you’re starting to get the idea around how affiliate marketing can work for fundraising right? If you think about all the different things people are already buying online, these are all opportunities to raise more funds. However it can become quite a job signing up to lots of different affiliate programs, so thankfully there is a much easier way. Enter Rewardhub.

Once that’s set up your Good Cause Page on Rewardhub is just like an online shopping mall but one where you earn a commission from all the transactions that originate from links on your page.
