FlipGive is a free team funding app that makes raising money a breeze. Teams earn cash back for buying the things they already need. Get paid whenever you shop, dine out, book hotels or activities.
Each year, Juli Waddell seems to double FlipGive’s potential. In 2014 the team earned $261 for the Markham Waxers, and she saw potential. Next year, she earned $798, then $1,419. Finally last year topped out at $2,576.
That’s great, but what’s awesome is that Juli shared with us how she’s been doing it – and it’s not complicated.
Top Coach Tip - Introducing it in Person
“Here’s what I sent to this year’s team,” Juli said.
What’s worth pointing out is the fact Juli spoke with the team before sending out invites. People are great at ignoring e-mails, so it's super-effective to break the ice with an in-person meeting... Team meetings are usually the best opportunity for this.
Top Coach Tip - Earn Early, Earn Often
Juli knew how to earn bonus cash - so she made sure her team did too:
Since this is a group platform, we give $5 bonuses to every member who makes their first shop in the first week – Juli’s used it as a motivator to get her team to try it out. Once you try it, there are lots of tools so you don’t forget. Our pro Juli knows this as well:
…And that’s what it’s all about! Once this becomes a habit for the team, it just keeps getting better. Of course, Juli’s getting her friends and family involved, and encourages her team mates to do the same.
We’ve got our own version of an introductory pack here so you can copy Juli’s success – handouts, a letter, presentation, and a video are all available for you.
