How FurBay Benefits Your Charity, Business Members, and Supporters!
Here is just one example of how our Fur Heaven’s Sake’s FurBay program will raise more revenue for your animal charity and make everyone happy while doing it!
Charity Business Member: (a jewelry store, for example) offers a watch to benefit an animal charity. (It can be for the one they registered under or another one.)
The jeweler wants COST plus $100 profit from the sale of the watch.
|Retail Value of Watch/Selling Price||$500|
|Wholesale Cost: Business cost||$200|
|Jewelers profit: Wants $100 profit|| $100
|Listed Item – (RESERVE PRICE)||$300|
|Option A: Watch listed for $400 on FurBay / Charity makes $100 profit.||$100|
|Option B: Watch listed for full retail value $500. Charity makes $200 profit||$200|
In this example, the jeweler covered costs and made the desired profit; the charity receives the donation percentage when the item sells.
Who else benefits? All Furheaven’sSake members, anywhere in the world that enjoys shopping. Being a member of FurBay gives members access to animal charities worldwide!
What if only one charity’s business member offered an average of 100 items like this a year? 100 X $200 = $ 20,000 a year!
What if your animal charity had 20 business members doing the same? That’s $400,000 a year for your charity!
This revenue is above and beyond the charity’s monthly membership dues from their Supporting Members!
Remember, if your charity has only 200 members, X $20 a month = $4,000 a month. $4000 a month X 12 months = $48,000 yr!
This example is not a hard goal to achieve by any means. Even small communities have at least 200 people who love animals.
And, a handful of Business Members can easily offer 100 items or services from their business in an entire year.
Let your Supporting Members be your marketing force! They, too, will enjoy being able to profit by helping you help them!
