Raffle Tickets

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Raffle Tickets

Hello All,

I attended a house raffle drawing last week in California that used four color printed raffle tickets in the drum. Really, this is an unnecessary expense. They’re in the drum for a short time, few people hold that ticket in their hands to see the nice photo you might have printed on it. I suggest plain black on white, or if you’ve sold about two to three thousand tickets, just purchase consecutively numbered tickets like these.

Atlanta-area gives gun raffle tickets to voters, prompting complaint the game violates law

So I recommend that the nonprofit keep the maximum profiit for their cause by using inexpensive, cheap raffle tickets.

To your success!

Help a Charity

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on Help a Charity

Hello All,

Tourists flooding our streets for the annual international balloon festival have left, but our beautiful weather remains–sunshine and blue skies. I hope you’re enjoying good weather too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

One of  the reasons a homeowner might want to raffle their home is to help their favorite charity. And this is a wonderful way to do  that. The homeowner gets their home sold, and the charity raises a substantial amount of cash for their cause. One word of caution: make sure that the charity fits with your house raffle.  For example, if you have a million dollar home, you will need a very strong charity to successfully sell the number of tickets required.

To your success!

What Others Are Saying:

“The book really does take you through the entire process. I feel like Diane holds your hand from beginning to end from qualifying the grand prize home to what happens after the drawing. I’m a homeowner and I’ve had difficulty selling my beautiful home. Now I know what it takes to sell my home in a raffle. I know exactly what type of nonprofit I need to partner with on my house raffle and what to expect. I’m excited to get started.”

-Karen L. Furguson, Homeowner in Tucson, Arizona

"Consulting with Diane by phone has been invaluable. Her knowledge on the subject of house raffles is enormous, and she has really given us a better understanding of the process as we move forward with our house raffle. She has been more than willing to take the time needed in answering all of our questions. After consulting with Diane, we feel we have a much better chance of putting together a successful house raffle and are excited about making it happen."

Chip Thompson, homeowner in Rehoboth, Delaware

"'I Sold My House in a Raffle' is an excellent example of creative marketing. The best marketers think "out of the box" and Diane shows that you can really sell your house in a raffle!"

-Ali Pervex, International Best Selling Author, 'Get Your Black Belt in Marketing', www.blackbeltinmarketing.com

“What a great marketing tool! This is a hot new method to get a property sold. My clients love this idea—I already have my first raffle house lined up. I’ll use Diane’s process to get and sell more listings.”

Jack C. Rosemary – California Real Estate Broker, 26 years experience

“I attended Diane’s workshop on February 27th, and she’s got it all together. Not only does she know how to pull off a house raffle but you can tell that she was a teacher because she knows how to convey the information. She broke the process into bite-size pieces and gave us exercises to complete so we were involved. Before anyone attempts a house raffle, they should attend Diane’s workshop–there’s more to it than one could imagine.”
