Some Guidelines To Get Your Charity Raising Revenue!
Starting something new can sometimes be intimidating, depending on what the project might be. But usually, after the first few steps in the right direction, things become easier to understand and perform.
We offer some suggestions that should help you with these first steps, and we will continue to be here whenever you may have a question or require our help.
We will be posting new FAQs, marketing tips, and suggestions as we get them. Feel free to ask YOUR questions at any time, and together, we will get your charity in the position to raise more money and support for your animal organizations!
Unless you are a large animal charity already with existing marketing staff to implement these steps, we emphasize lining up your charity’s supporters and members you can count on to get the ball rolling.
Offering incentives to people is a great way to motivate others to help you, and here are a few suggestions. Allow a profit incentive or other rewards when they bring in items, services, or new Business Members to register with your charity! (See Step Four below).
Follow our guidelines and steps to setting up your charity’s revenue programs, and it will become easier to do than you might think!
BASIC STEPS TO GETTING STARTED…
STEP ONE: Register your animal charity for free.
(Move the image and put a link to the registration page after Cyber creates it.)
STEP TWO: When you register your charity, you get your FurBay online store. You can use it as much or as little as you like. Use your FurBay store to offer items and services to your members and the general public! You can ‘select items’ now and then for just your ‘Supporting Members’ (those who pay monthly dues) as an incentive for more to join your charity!

From your members or anyone wishing to help your charity! Determine what dollar amount is needed to cover its cost, profit (if any for the seller), and what your charity will receive when sold on your FurBay store. (See FAQs & Tips for more ideas).
- Step Three: Your Business Members will also have their FurBay store when they register under your charity. Now they are registered with ALL our charity members everywhere. The general public, all FurBay members, anywhere can access and shop our member stores at any time!
In the beginning, you can concentrate on recruiting Supporting Members and Business Members and let the business members and your supporters build a revenue inventory for you!
- Step Four: When your Supporting Members (not your Business Members) bring you items to offer on your charity’s FurBay store, offer them the option of sharing profits when these items sell. ( Find an image on Bigstock or wait and use a Dokan image.)
Memberships are only $20 a month, but some of your members may want to bring you resellable items to recoup their membership fees, and if so, this is a rewarding way for them to do it! Your charity will gain more revenue from sales when they do!
Some will donate items fully as they do when charities have Gift Stores to raise money. But, whatever amount your charity and they agree upon, the remaining profits go to your charity.
Again, ‘mutually benefitting’ results in a beneficial relationship that perpetuates itself!
Note: Some animal charities already have a Gift Store using donated items to sell. Now you can do the same using your FurBay store to expand your market reach.
If your charity already has a Gift Store, now your FurBay store can offer your items anywhere in the world!
And away we go…..!
