London Jr Mustangs Atom Purple Raised $1619 in the Shop Challenge
Their Tip: “ We took some extra time over the weekend to show those having any trouble how to use the App and Gift Card Wallet”.
Why it works: One of the main barriers many of our users have when using FlipGive is that they don’t know what to do to make the most of it. There are plenty of ways to use the app to maximize your team’s earnings. So FlipGive Savvys, this is your cue to helping your team during raise to win by showing them your favorite brands and features on the app.
San Diego Saints 2004 raised $1570 in the Shop Challenge
Their Tip: “ The first thing was getting enough people involved to participate. Second, gift cards were big for us. We knew we were going to eat out, so we just asked $20/parents and bought gift cards for the team ahead of time.”
Why it works: It’s the fastest and easiest cash your team will earn on FlipGive. If people on your team don’t shop online, remind them to stock up in gift cards during the contest. Organizing team events and buying gift cards for the whole team during the contest is also a great way to have fun while raising together! Use the Nearby Me feature on the app to see what’s around and plan your event in the app!
Hybo 11U Blue 2019 raised $728 in the Shop Challenge
Their tip: “In order to raise the amount of funds we did in such a short time, we really just reminded people of all the ways you can go through FlipGive for things you are spending money on anyway, like eating out or even grocery shopping. Putting some competitive parents in a position where they can win with shopping is an easy challenge. Our biggest earnings came from Under Armour, Nike, Buffalo Wild Wings, Schwan’s Delivery and so many others.”
Why it works: Once everyone on the team gets the hang of FlipGive and start using it for every single purchase, the more money you’ll actively raise! To be reminded to use FlipGive, download Max, our web extension, and to keep the app visible on your home screen.
Trent Rugby Sevens raised $3750 in the Shop Challenge
Their tip: "This year we were very fortunate to have some very generous alumni who donated to us via FlipGive."
Why it works: If you are looking to raise funds with donations, the trick is simple: Reach out to EVERYONE you can think of that would be interested in helping your team out. Share your donation link via email, SMS or WhatsApp through the app. It only takes 20 seconds!
Evanston Lightning raised $3005 in the Donation Challenge
Their Tip: “Heavily promote your team on social media to get all the families involved. We really encouraged our players to get everyone involved in their parents’ social media”
Why it works: People often underestimate the power of sharing their campaign on social media. It is very likely that some people on your team will forget to shop through Flipgive, we all know how crazy parenting life can get, so this is the time to reach out and send them weekly reminders to use FlipGive. Use your newsfeed on the app to spread the word and motivate them to use their socials to raise more!
There you go FlipGivers, you are now ready to kill it! Best of Luck and may the best teams win!
